One of the projects I’m working on is a soundtrack for a fantasy novel series by Angela Korra’ti. The trilogy is collectively called The Free Court of Seattle, with first novels Faerie Blood and Bone Walker.

Kickstarter backer copies and pre-orders for Faerie Blood in electronic form are going out now, as in, right now, as in check your inboxes. The first copies of the print edition should be made this week, and ship shortly thereafter. Electronic editions will be available through Amazon/Kindle, Apple/iBook, B&N/Nook, Chapters/Kobo, and the rest of the alphabet as the rollout schedule progresses, print editions will come through Third Place Press.

I’m the book designer – hey, I have an art degree, I may as well use it – and I’ve restarted my old small press to handle taxes. It’s weird being back in the small-press saddle. I never thought I’d typeset LOW ORBIT PUBLICATIONS again, much less announce book releases, but, well, here I am!

I’m really happy with how this book looks. By which I mean, PDF people? We are Retina-display aware and ready. Because that is just how we roll.

I also finished one of the original songs for the soundtrack last night. Anna was all jumping up and down at the lyrics.

This? This is gonna be good.
