http://www.tornworld.net/familyties.php

A gorgeous volume of stories, poetry and artwork, this anthology is a great starting place for getting a taste of Torn World. Family Ties and Torn Skies is arranged chronologically in two segments: the isolated snow-unicorn riders of the north, and the sprawling Empire of the south, with information blurbs and introductions to help orient you to this vast and finely detailed setting. Meet the fascinating characters who are shaping our current storylines, and get a glimpse at some of the conflicts and adventures being set into motion. Framed around the topic of family and coming of age, this collection offers 266 page of content in a trade paperback format (5" x 7.5"). Pre-order the hardcopy version (mails mid-June or earlier!) and receive the e-book pdf free! (Kindle and other e-versions coming... once I've replaced my computer or re-formated it...)

Subscribers at Torn World, be sure to log in before ordering, because you get 10% off! ( for as little as $5 and get access to everything at the site!)

The order page on the site seems to be missing part of a sentence in the first paragraph: "This volume includes 32 stories, 5 poems, and The trade paperback is 5 x 7.5 inches, 266 pages, perfect bound, with a full-color wraparound cover by Ellen Million."

<pokes around> The book order form takes me to aitsafe but the subscription form takes me straight to paypal. Can I put a book order and a subscription renewal into the same paypal transaction, or do they have to be separate?

Merp! As soon as I can boot my computer again I will fix the order page, and post a cart link for the subscription. :)

There we go! I finished my thought (and added a note if you aren't logged in that a subscription gets you 10% off...) and also added the shopping cart option on the subscribers page: http://www.tornworld.net/supporters.php

(This is a good point, since I've been asked about sending checks before, and the aitsafe shopping cart supports that...)

Yay! Thank you for all your hard work producing this book. It looks beautiful. I can hardly wait to see the hardcopy. (My mother ordered 3 copies yesterday.)

I have advertised it on my Facebook (as expected!) and also in my deviant art as I put up the cute kraken sketch. I also put it on my WoW forum for the guild (who knows, someone might like it!) So hopefully there might be a few more purchases.

I am now off to convince MUD players (who Roleplay in text) that this book is for them!

This is now available in alternate e-book formats (including Kindle!) here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/64155

We're waiting for approval for inclusion to the complete catalog, which will put us up on Amazon and B&N, etc.

http://www.amazon.com/Family-Ties-Skies ... _rhf_p_t_2

Our book is now available for order at Amazon!

Smashwords has also approved it for inclusion in their premium catalog, so it should be available at many fine ebook distributors (including Apple, Barnes and Nobel etc.) in a week or two!

And, the hardcopies are in hand! Deirdre has two boxes to take to Duckon, and I've got three; I will be sending out all the pre-orders today, I hope! (Or tomorrow.)

Are we getting requests for review copies? If so, has anyone seen any reviews "in the wild", at this point?

We've had only a few requests for review copies so far, and, I just spotted one of those reviews in the wild: http://chicpixel.blogspot.com/2011/06/b ... skies.html
