Photo sale! For the holidays! (Not mine.)

My darling Ryan is trying to get started as a professional photographer, and he's good. You can see his photo blog here, for examples of his work:

Right now, he's partnering with A Rising Tide to sell his first prints. To quote Ryan directly, "I currently have four prints available for purchase and all are printed on high gloss archival-quality Hahnemuehle Satin paper that will maintain its integrity for years to come." So that's what's what! Here's the info on his currently available material:

Blue Moon.

16x11 for $79.00
32x22 for $149.00

Suzalo Library.

I have just received confirmation that both When Will You Rise and Velveteen vs. The Junior Super Patriots are now shipping! These books represent my first solo hardcovers, one under each of my names, and like so many good things, they are here for a limit time.

When Will You Rise: Stories to End the World is published by Subterranean Press, and is limited to 1,000 signed and numbered copies. This gorgeously illustrated collection contains "Countdown" and "Apocalypse Scenario #683: The Box." If you place an order within the next few days, it should reach you in time for the holidays. Oh, and did I mention that we got a starred review from Publishers Weekly? Because yeah. We totally did.

Velveteen vs. The Junior Super Patriots is published by ISFIC Press, and is also limited to 1,000 copies. You can obtain signed copies directly from the publisher, or by contacting Borderlands Books. If you place an order within the next few days, it should reach you in time for the holidays. This volume contains the Velveteen stories through "Velveteen vs. The Blind Date," along with all-new supplemental material, an introduction by Jim Hines, and a valediction by Carrie Vaughn. I'm really happy with it.

So those are my new hardcovers, and they're beautiful, and I'm totally excited about them. Glee!
