Bryony And Roses LAUNCH DAY!

*breaths into paper bag*

Okay! Here we go! I have hit PUBLISH on all the major sites! WE ARE DOING THIS THING!

*gets second paper bag*

Bryony And Roses! The Beauty & the Beast retelling I've been promising you guys for years! The one about the gardener and the roses! May contain clockwork bees because that seems to be a recurring motif of mine! Not quite as dark as Seventh Bride! Probably will not shock you into unwanted personal growth! Available under the pen-name T. Kingfisher!

So many exclamation points!

As always, you can visit


and find links to all the formats, updated as they become available. (At the time of this writing, it is on Smashwords and Kindle. Please note that epub is the only format available from Smashwords! Draft2Digital is handling other conversions for Kobo, Nook and iBooks, and I will update as they occur.)

ETA: And we have Kobo!

If you require a PDF in order to read it, you can e-mail me at ursulav@gmail.com and I will happily sell you one unless you live in the EU, in which case I am afraid VAT comes into play. But fear not! E-mail me anyway, and we will Work Something Out, probably involving a conservation charity in the EU that could use some love.

There's a tortoiseshell kitten on my desk and I am having the Book Launch Day screaming panic and the backmatter is undoubtedly made of bees but it will all work out, it always does, and hopefully you will enjoy the book!

You could use Payhip to sell the PDF version, they will handle VAT for you. I did that for my knitting/crochet patterns in the gap before Ravelry took on the VAT mess for designers.

"Probably will not shock you into unwanted personal growth!"

Always a dangerous claim to make... ^_^

('Course, I managed to shock myself into unwanted personal growth by doing NaNo one year, so I'm probably an outlier here. :D)

*burning tire tracks to buy*

YAY!!! Eagerly awaiting the Kindle version!

*eagerly awaits Kindle version*

Oddly enough, I just finished "The Seventh Bride" in the wee hours of this morning -- perfect timing!! :D

*nom nom smashwords version nom nom*



*licks chops like a cat who just devoured a whole can of the gooshy food*

Amazon.ca has it ... Whee!!!!

ETA: Just read The Dryad's Shoe, and thought you might be interested in a recent science article in the NYTimes that describes tufted titmice in quite complimentary terms: nytimes.com/2015/05/19/science/decoding-the-cacophony-of-birds-warning-calls.html

Oh, wow! That's really cool!

Amazon has it for sale in the US! *bounces in glee*

Whoot! U.S. Kindle version is live! Now I have to finish work. *sad face*

Me too. *gives you sympathy hugs*

UK Kindle is also live!

This is the *perfect* "Congratulations on surviving apartment hunting" present for myself!

Yay! And congratulations on surviving apartment hunting!

This is potentially a 'duh!' question, but since clockwork bees are a recurring theme, have you ever read Ernst Jünger's 'The Glass Bees'? Just curious!

I have not!

So exciting!

Did I already tell you about submitting self-pub stuff to PW for review consideration? I think I did but can't remember.

Ah--no, I don't think you did! It's not ringing a bell, anyway, and my memory is like a sieve...

Waiting for Nook version to go live.

Which is probably just as well, since I really, really need to finish some other stuff and don't expect to be patient once I have it in my hands.
