It is my absolute joy to inform you all that NO DOMINION is now available for general purchase!

Via Barnes & Noble, for your Nook!

Via Amazon, in print or for your Kindle!

NO DOMINION is a Walker Papers tie-in, mostly the result of my Kickstarter-gone-wild. It has seven short stories and one short(ish) novel. The last two stories take place after the end of the Walker Papers series, but I don't consider them to have any spoilers in them. However, you should really, *really* have read up through RAVEN CALLS before you start reading NO DOMINION. The author feels *strongly* about this. *looks fierce*

NO DOMINION itself is a short novel about Gary Muldoon, Joanne's septuagenarian sidekick. People have been asking me about Gary's story since the series began, and partway through RAVEN CALLS, the opportunity to tell it leapt up and throttled me. I wrote it for my Kickstarter patrons, and now it's available for everyone!

NO DOMINION general release cover Recently widowed after nearly fifty years of marriage, Gary Muldoon had given up on adventure. Then shaman Joanne Walker climbed into the back seat of his cab, and since then, Gary has trifled with gods, met mystics, slain zombies and ridden with the Wild Hunt.

But now he must leave Joanne’s side to face a battle only he can win. Because as their long battle against a dark magic-user races toward its climax, it becomes clear that it was not illness that took Annie’s life, but their enemy’s long and deadly touch.

Though lovers be lost, love shall not, and death shall have...


A Walker Papers Collection

Now, NO DOMINION is a self-publishing venture. This means, sadly, that you will not be able to buy it in the bookstores. (I've talked about this with bookstore people, in fact. I can do a print copy which Lulu.com will make available *to* bookstores, but Lulu doesn't give a deep enough discount on non-refundable books (which this would be) for bookstores to just go ahead and order it so it'll be on the shelves. So it's not that I'm neglecting that potential avenue, it's just that basically it's not available in any practical manner.)

You *can* order a print copy through Amazon, or buy an e-book version at Amazon or B&N. I'll get it up on Smashwords relatively soon, but since I've only ever sold like six books through Smashwords it's not a really high priority right now. :)

I would dearly, dearly appreciate it if anybody who has already read it felt moved to go write a review for Amazon and/or B&N.com, and I would equally appreciate any signal boost you felt like providing. The problem with self-publishing, even if you're a known entity, is making people aware of the book, since it won't be on the shelves for readers to just trip over.

Those links once more!

I am just starting the book, but will happily post a glowing review on Amazon and Goodreads when I've finished, and signal boost as much as I can. And you're always welcome to do a guest post on my blog, if you think that would help.

Oh, wait, sorry.

Sorry to bother you, but does this mean all of your "special snowflakes" have been shipped out? Just checking...

Everything is in the mail! (God, I hope it's all in the mail. I don't think I've missed anybody...)

Yay! :)

Re- Smashwords: Have you enrolled in the premium program? That distributes your books to a lot of stores, including Apple, Kobo ( which means you get WHSmith and FNAC too) and even libraries ( I think).

I have been trying to figure out whether or not I need to buy this now or if I can wait until I can better justify a more frivolous expenditure like books that are purely for pleasure.

This is the only crowdfund project that I missed out on so I don't want to miss it again. But I would much prefer the paper copy and I'm not sure how the lulu.com publishing works.

Do you know if there is a limited time frame that I'll be able to order the paperback copy? Or how I could look up what the time frame is if you think there might be one?

The paper copy is available through Amazon and will remain available indefinitely, fear not. :)
