Thanks for the updates Charlie and AnemicOak! Exciting!! It’s a long wait until December though.

Truthfully, I’m caught between longing for several more books to follow each character’s lifepath; and just feeling grateful the authors are still writing. Considering their ages, health, life, etc., every new book is a gift.

Once this grand story arc is concluded, I’d be very happy with stand-alones, and tales they may find easier to offer. I find as much pleasure in the characters, and day to day workings of trade, flying the ships, etc, as I do complex plots. It’s just such a rich, believable world. At least to me. (But it is a real place, right? )

I would agree, Victoria. It's much more about the characters than the plot against the evil Department of the Interior. Which is why the series / Universe has had such legs.

If you can not wait until June.

A Liaden Universe Constellation, Volume 4 - eARC $15.00

Quote:

BOOK 4 in the multivolume Liaden Universe® short fiction collection. Tales of the Liaden Universe® brought together for the first time. Space opera and romance on a grand scale in a galaxy full of interstellar trading clans.

For more than thirty years, the Liaden Universe® novels by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller have captivated readers with their unique blend of action adventure, science fiction, and romance. In addition to twenty-one novels (and counting) Lee and Miller have written dozens of shorter works based in the Liaden Universe®, featuring the strong characterization, detailed world-building, wit, and derring-do that readers of the series adore.

This fourth volume collecting Lee aned Miller’s shorter Liaden Universe® stories features four novelettes, two novellas, and two short stories—including the celebrated linked stories, "Block Party" and "Degrees of Separation."

Sure to delight longtime fans and newcomers alike, these tales highlight why the nationally best-selling Liaden Universe® novels are treasured by space opera aficionados, with detailed world-building, strong characterizations, compelling romance, and edge-of-the-chair action in stories that range from cosmic to comic.

What is an eARC?
Spoiler:

An eARC is an Advance Reader Copy. This is an unproofed manuscript and is guaranteed to be full of typos and error. It is pretty much raw from the author's word processor. But you get the entire eARC well in advance of even the Monthly Baen Bundle release.

Do eARCs include the final proofed version?

No. If you would like to read and enjoy the final proofed version, you must purchase that separately.

Why is an eARC more expensive than the regular book?

We offer the eARC at a $15 price point because not only are they exactly how the author wrote them, but they are available well in advance of the official publication.

Perfectly understood. This is my own personal form of Patreon, if you will.

A post from her FB account:
Quote:
Oh, look, a blurb for Fortune's Favors.

ARE YOU FEELING LUCKY?

Mar Tyn eys'Ornstahl is a lucky man. His very presence can determine the fall of a card, the spin of a wheel, or whether the bread will rise or fall.

In fact, Mar Tyn eys'Ornstahl isn't merely lucky. Mar Tyn is a Luck; a focal point for the elemental force of random event. While most people think that there is good luck and bad, Mar Tyn knows better. Luck is Luck; only the aftermath of Luck's presence can be found to be good or bad.

Mar Tyn's Luck, for instance, has recently cost him his home, and his savings. He has only one thing left to gamble.

And his life might not be enough.
* Fortune's Favors is a Liaden Universe short that will appear as a chapbook "real soon now"

Yahoo - that’s quite a long one. Thank you. I hate waiting too, but I find that pre-ordering does help a bit.

Just finished reading Fortune's Favors which arrived on my Oasis last night just as I was supposed to be going to sleep. Ah, well, I'll take a nap today.

A wonderful short story with some characters we've seen before. Highly recommended.

ETA: the story in which some of the characters of Fortune's Favors previously appeared was Degrees of Separation.

Note that there's a minor issue with the Kindle version, as described by Ms. Lee elsewhere:
Quote:
