Campbell Award finalist releasing free e-books

Covenant, the first volume in my Deviations series, was released by Aisling Press as a trade paperback in September 2007. The sequel, Appetite, was to be released last September, right around the time Aisling's parent company was administratively dissolved by the Florida Department of State.

I re-released Covenant in March as a free download from my website and plan to release Appetite later this week.
Genre: science fiction/anthropological fiction/dark fantasy, with mature content.
Formats available: EPUB, HTML, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PDF, PRC
Site: http://home.earthlink.net/~deviations/index.html

I was a John W. Campbell Award finalist in 1985. My story "Moments of Clarity" (Full Spectrum, Bantam, 1988) reached preliminary ballot for a 1989 Nebula. This year, two publications containing my fiction are up for awards: Electric Velocipede for a Hugo Award and the anthology Unspeakable Horror (Dark Scribe Press) for a Bram Stoker Award.

Bibliography and other info may be seen at my main website:
http://home.earthlink.net/~emalcohn/index.html

I found this forum through Jeffrey A. Carver's article, "Psst! Wanna Buy a Free Ebook?" (SFWA Bulletin, Dec. 2008-Jan. 2009). Thank you all for being here! -- Elissa

Welcome, Elissa, to this corner of the greatness that is Mobileread

Good to see you got to here from a Jeffrey Carver post, and even better to see that you're offering your work in ePub (we're mad keen on that particular format around these parts).

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Thanks for your interest! Carver's site directed me to Calibre, where I found the EPUB conversion. I'm an e-book newbie -- I don't have a reader except for what I've put on my computer.

I've just released Appetite on the site and plan to release Vol. 3, Destiny, this December. Goin' soon with a bunch of CDs and paperbacks to Oasis May 22-24, hosted by the Orlando Area Science Fiction Society.

Hello Elissa and welcome to MobileRead. Thank you so much for providing eBook versions of your novels. I've downloaded Covenant and hope that it is a book that I'll enjoy. If so, I'll be eager to read through your entire bibliography!
