Orbit's "12 Days of Ebooks" list [Dec. 30th, 2011|10:30 am]

Orbit UK has been discussing 12 of its writers on a "12 Days of Ebooks" list--and tweeting about the list.   This link gives you the whole list, but opens on my entry, because...well... why not?

I found it interesting that although my next book with them is epic fantasy--the third of the Paladin's Legacy group, Echoes of Betrayal--they started with the military SF.   I don't mind--I'm delighted to be part of this list at all--and I like that they're talking about more than just the next book.    It makes sense, with the present audience focused on the current group of books, to bring up the others first. 

The list doesn't provide extra links (to the authors' websites, blogs, etc.)  so just in case there's someone reading this who doesn't know:  the current group has its own dedicated website with a lot of information about the previous books and the world in which they're set--places, people, religions, etc., and one free short story.   And there's an embedded blog where (at the moment) I'm putting out my own "12 days"--this one of episodes in a side-story that fits between Kings of the North and Echoes of Betrayal.

Nice write-up; I like how they did that. I'm pretty excited about being able to read while my kids and I are on holidays. I'll check out some of the stuff on this list.

What I want to know is when are they going to release all of those same e-books for the US Market.

They may be, for writers with whom they have world-rights contracts. I don't know, since that is not my situation.

Orbit UK is my UK publisher and can release e-books of my works only in their UK domain. There are US e-books of all my published books out now from either Baen or Random House. Information is available on my website, www.elizabethmoon.com, under Fiction tab entries by series, or by contacting the publishers.
