Today Dreadnought is officially released into the world! It seems like just yesterday that I wrestled the first few chapters into position … and now, it’s a real live book out there in the world where anyone can pick it up and give it a read.
This is terrifying in a general way (what if people don’t like it?) and exciting in a big way (yay! my ninth book is born!), with a dash of nerve-wracking (God, I hope people buy it) and a side of relief (I no longer have to say “It’s coming soon!”).
With all my heart, I want readers to enjoy it. That’s the most important thing to me, right now – that if you pick up this book, and if you sit down with it for an afternoon … you come out the other side with a smile on your face. If you do enjoy it, I hope you’ll share it; and as always, I greatly appreciate those of you who leave reviews in the pertinent places.
Such reviews are invaluable. They are a service to writers and other readers alike.
And now for the part where I answer all the pressing questions to which I have answers. If you have a question which is not addressed here – you can comment on my website or Livejournal, or send me an email, and I will do my best to track down a satisfactory response.
(Perhaps this is a good time to re-link this post from earlier this year – wherein I discuss the things which writers do and don’t control in the publication process.)

And now, because someone always asks – no, I have no preference with regards to where or how you buy your books. It doesn’t matter to me in the slightest; do whatever works best for your budget and your convenience.

Finally, I just want to say a big, fat, epic THANKS … to everyone who takes a chance on this book. Thank you for your interest, your time, and your investment. Thank you for making it possible – this book and all my other books, too – because without you readers and book-buyers, all this blood, sweat, and tears is just so much shouting in the dark.
