Coming soon: "Young Wizards: Lifeboats". Right now: a 60% off pre-pub sale!
ETA: Due to late-stage production problems (trouble with the Calibre ebook-preparation and -conversion software we use), Young Wizards: Lifeboats will not be ready for purchase until the end of July.
Our apologies for the delay. Nonetheless, the preparatory 60% off sale here in the Ebooks Direct store is still running and will continue until Lifeboats goes on sale. Thanks for your patience!)
Young Wizards: Lifeboats is a 40,000 word canonical work in the Young Wizards universe, and is set in February 2011, shortly after the events of the two preceding YW short novels, Not On My Patch and How Lovely Are Thy Branches. These three works together constitute a “transitional trilogy” preceding the events of the forthcoming Games Wizards Play.
The ebook version of Young Wizards: Lifeboats will be available in all the major e-reader formats at the Ebooks Direct store at the end of July.
The day the ebook becomes available, an announcement with links to the order page will be posted here on Tumblr, at DianeDuane.com, on the main DD blog, “Out of Ambit,” and on DD’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
However, until the ebook becomes available, as a warm-up event, all ebooks in our store are 60% off (so you can pick up the two previous short novels for a truly absurd price). The sale will end as soon as Young Wizards: Lifeboats becomes available for purchase. Spread the word, as we will not be offering this deep a discount again until Black Friday in November!
Meawhile, watch this space for further developments! (And you might want to bookmark this post, as we’ll also update it when YW: Lifeboats is released.)
