Oooh, a new Kay!

(one of the reasons) Why I love ebooks:

1) Dashes off to Fictionwise
2) Searches for 'Ysabel'
3) Clicks 'Add to cart'
4) Pays for book with Micropay
5) Downloads book to Cybook
6) Starts reading.


Total time: less than a minute :-)

Don't you have to actually write fantasy?

And I don't mean fantasies, my friend.

It looks like that is the only one of the nominated novels available as an eBook.

For what its worth, Will Shetterly released a creative commons version of The Gospel of the Knife which I have posted LRF and PRC versions in the book uploads section. Also the prequel Dogland has also been posted.
