No detective work involved. Clicked the link and saw what looked like a referral tag in the browser bar. Search refs are easy to identify because of their format. This type, not so much apparently.

I should probably also point out that link shorteners are also frowned upon on MR. Normally it's because you can't see where they go, but in the case of amazon, they can hide referral tags. I know this not because I dislike affiliates, but because I am an affiliate who gets annoyed that Amazon makes it so difficult for me to figure out if I'm posting a clean link or not.

Which reminds me that I need to go cancel my affiliate account because I don't use it anymore.

Edited to add: I apologize for the mis-identification. Meant to include that in my post but my mind got sidetracked in my musings on the affiliate program.
Don't worry, I totally understand. It is a very obscure piece of Amazon trivia, which I think is very cool and makes things much simpler (since in general all amazon links are full of garbage). I expect people not to recognize it, but in most other places, people won't actually check to see where my link is taking them... Possibly those unstoppable Internet Explorer users.

For future reference, everyone, amzn.com/{asin} is a short really compact way of linking to any amazon page with an asin, and provided by amazon itself, which they should really start using themselves maybe.

Cool 9 Days Until "James Potter and the Morrigan Web"

Quoted from

Quote:
NINE MORE DAYS! A few vital stats about the new book:

Currently, "James Potter and the Morrigan Web" is 185,000 words long (which amounts to about 550 pages in printed book form) and no, I am not done with it yet.

It introduces several all new characters, many of whom have been alluded to here (and whom I will introduce in a series of short excerpts shortly).

I haven't yet broken the book up into chapters, but I am confident that the initial release-- one chapter per day-- will cover a month's time. My apologies if this is your first experience with this: it's a bit of a tradition by now. It allows for loads of fun speculation and discussion between you and I as the story unfolds-- and I admit that I enjoy that immensely. Truly, if you have never experienced it before, it is a very unique and interactive literary experience.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I am already turning my attention toward the remainder of the series. I am considering writing just ONE MORE James Potter story. This is for several reasons, but the most important reason is this: I think that's what the story wants. I COULD drag the tale out for seven complete books, but I believe five is the right number.

If all goes as planned, the fifth and final book in the series will be called "James Potter and the Crimson Thread".

Because we sometimes talk about other fantasy series while waiting for the next Dresden. Rather than a strictly defined Dresden thread, it's more like a clubhouse for Dresden fans.

*Sigh*
C'mon Jim, put all your other projects on the backburner and just write Dresden.

On the plus side however, I like to say "steampunk".

Steampunk steampunk steampunk.

Ha! A while back a friend of mine asked me what steampunk was. I explained, and he just looked at me for a minute, then said, "Oh, it sounded like something cool. Too bad." He doesn't really read so I probably should have expected that.
