Summer In Orcus Launches Tomorrow!

So, uh...looks like we're actually doing this thing! Tomorrow! If the CSS is kind, it will auto-populate and if not, I'll do it manually, but it is going live, come hell or high water!

You can read the introduction (and bookmark the page where more things will appear) right here!

I will be posting links here as they go live, never fear! It will be up Tuesdays and Thursdays, and we're going to try bonus content on Sundays--little snippets about the world of Orcus and so forth--once we've had a few weeks to settle in, and I'll do my best to get an RSS feed working as well for people who don't check back here frequently.

Long-time LJ readers will recognize the start of the story--"Hey! It's the one with Baba Yaga!"--as having been posted here. Yup, that's the one, and I finally finished it...

I'm all nervous and stuff. This is such a weird little book and I'm still not sure if anyone will like it or if they will throw tomatoes, but by god, I wrote it anyway, and thanks to the awesome people on Patreon, I can offer it free to the world.

I loved the Baba Yaga short story!

Are you telling me it is now part of a longer story!


I've been looking forward to the serial because I look forward to everything you do, but I also wondered occasionally what became of the Baba Yaga story. So I'm glad to hear this is it, and now looking forward to it a little extra.

Looking forward to this. YAY!

Ooo, also looking forward to it!

If they throw tomatoes… make salsa!

Looking forward to reading!

Come on, really? Have we ever thrown tomatoes? Unless they were rare, heirloom tomatoes, I guess.

And then it would be a gentle, under-hand toss. O:>

Okay, that was enough to send me over to Patreon. I've only started getting into that -- you're my second author -- but I've read enough of that story to know I want the e-book.

Yes! I was hoping it was the Baba Yaga one. Pledge on Patreon updated!

Also, after reading the intro, I'm curious to know what you thought of the Abarat books, if you don't mind me asking?

I really liked the first one. There were elements I really loved, like the islands all being different hours--it was so fantastical without falling into the trap of so much fantasy of the time. It was so silly a concept that I feel like a lot of authors would have been afraid of it. So much fantasy does the "Here is our worldbuilding and here is our magic system and here is our logic and everything follows logically" and then WHAM, it's always five o'clock on this island, deal with it.

And I loved the cloth golems full of mud.

The second one, though, just kind of slid off my brain without leaving very much impression. I don't know if it was the time I read it or what. And now I just checked and there's a third which I hadn't read at all.

Squeeee! <dances impatiently>

*quietly squees*

If they throw tomatoes, Hey! free tomatoes!

But they won't. If nothing else, your fans are generally too polite.

I am loving this so much.

And if I haven't thanked you for your children's books yet, let me thank you, because my super-reluctant reader is not reluctant to read any book by you. And I'm not reluctant to read them either! (Yesterday I told myself I was "just previewing" the next Dragonbreath. Yeah. That's it. Checking for poison...)

Yaaaaaaaaaaay! *kermitflail*

Yay! Looking forward to it.


And yes, an RSS feed would be greatly appreciated, if it's not too much trouble.

Man, I am so excited to have regular ursulav reading! I loved this story when you posted the beginning of it, and I love it now with the growing love of an enthusiast for the familiar but infrequently seen.


Love the beginning... looking forward to the journey!

Yay! I loved the Baba Yaga story.

Okay, adding the link got married as spam, so I'll just tell you this for linked over at Metafilter, too.

Now to go read it!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeee yay I've been wanting to read this story for YEARS.

What about gently lobbing tomatoes for to make a tomato sandwich?

Would you like some tomatoes? We have Brandywine and Green Zebra and Dona and one little Black Prince and Early Girl and Tess's Land Race and the local saved seed that my landlord says came from Italy that I've nicknamed 'Amara Centennial.'
