Thanks for a successful Q&A a couple of weeks ago. I had a surprisingly good time on the livestream, with more than 3500 people watching at one point, which beats my previous best livestream by a factor of three.
For those of you who don’t have any real desire to watch a video where I talk almost non-stop for over two hours, (and I can’t blame you, really) I’ll mention that I made an announcement at the end of the session. Specifically, that we’ll be releasing a 10th Anniversary Edition of The Name of the Wind later this year. If you really want more details, well…. *glances up at link to the video.*
I’ll do an official blog about that at some point in the future. Hopefully showing off the new cover and talking in more detail about what will be included in the edition. But that’s probably down the road a bit. Today, I thought I’d let you know about two other things.
- The Activism Primer.
I wrote a blog about a week ago about how a few members of the Worldbuilders Team were dealing with the current political climate. At the end of the blog, I mentioned that I’d been thinking of putting together a newsletter for people who want to stay informed and/or learn how to engage in effective activism.
Problem was, I didn’t know if that’s something people really wanted, so I put up a google form, and… well… And as of right now about 2100 folks have signed up. So it looks like I’ll be putting a team together to make that happen.
- A new Humble Bundle.
Good news! Humble Bundle and Subterranean Press have teamed up again to offer some cool books in return for a donation to charity, and they’ve selected Worldbuilders as the charity of choice.
For those of you who don’t know, Humble Bundle lets you pay what you want for a bunch of cool DRM-Free books. The more money you donate, the more books you get. And if you donate over 15 bucks, you ALL the books in the bundle.
And this is good stuff too. Books by Jim Butcher, Tim Powers, Mira Grant and Kevin Hearn. Not to mention plucky up-and-comers like John Scalzi and Clive Barker….
If that’s not enough for you, well don’t fret. They’ll be adding even more books in a couple days, so the bundle will only get better.
Perhaps coolest of all, as with all the Humble Bundles, you’re able to decide exactly where where your money goes. For example:
Or, for another example:
I don’t know about you, but that sort of freedom of choice delights me. It’s one of the things I love most about Humble Bundle.
They’ve got a ton of games and other cool things in there if you want to wander around a take a look.
There are lots of ways to help out and get cool stuff in return, but be careful. The Subterranean Press bundle will end on March 1st at 11am Pacific Time.
See you later Space Cowboys…
