Lift-off on The Empire! 
29th-Nov-2010 05:33 pm
The Empire is now officially published! It's been a long road but definitely worth it.

One bit of bad news is that Amazon and other book sellers will not pick it up for 2-6 weeks. Yup, it takes them that long. Amazon will be the fastest at 2 weeks.

The good news is that the publisher has set up a special Friends and Family page for me where you can order the dead tree version now. It's for a limited time and lucky people in the US can purchase it for a very special price. I can't even get it at that price because I'm in Canada and it's my book. Sigh.

For those who might be interested in looking at the site, it requires a password so please send me an email or an IM.

1) What is your email address? I thought that you were on Lysator but I can't find your email, if that was you.

2) What is an IM?

3) Who was the model for Adrian since the picture doesn't seem to be Avon?

4) The background is very nice.

Glad you are still alive and recovering. The father of my supervisor, aged 50 when I was 26, dropped dead when he went back to work as a truck driver a month after his heart attack, so be careful.

Your success story must give you a lift. Congratulations! This is exciting, to watch a fan author make good. I once knew of Barbara Hambly, seen with mutual friends a few times a year, and Susan Matthews, bought her fanzines, but that was before the Internet, with your frequent postings.

Hey there. Good to see you around. Thanks :)

I will be careful. I've been going slow with the exercise and I'll be starting a cardiac program in the New Year after I come back from Christmas at my sister's.

I'm not sure who the model was, just someone the publisher found. He has a good look for it. It's unfortunate it couldn't be Avon ;)

This is my email: erl.patterns@gmail.com

IM is instant messenger :)

Being a die-hard Avon-fan I never read your Adrian and Kali story, but I understand that Adrian is an Avon avatar. I think I'll put the book on my wish list for Sinterklaas....

Thanks! Yes, in spirit, Adrian is like Avon. Well, parts of him anyway. How are you doing?

I'm fine. I've been travelling a lot and have a new job, so not much time for Lj. I hear you are slowly recovering. Taking it slow must have been difficult, with the new book about to be published. Are you going to party today, now that the book is officially on the market?

You have a new job, that's great! Good luck with it.
