Free book!

Hugo Award winning author Lawrence Watt-Evans (aka lwe, his wiki page here. Check out that bibliography.) previously posted the first draft of one of his Ethshar books, a chapter at a time, over on his website. It was run on the donation model, and once the book was finished, he revised and released as a tpb.

Now, he's doing it again, this time with a science fiction novel called Realms of Light. The first chapter is here. If you're interested in this sort of thing, it's a chance to read an established pro's first draft.

Check it out and drop a comment if you like it.

I think we can say conclusively that that experiment didn't work.

In his own LJ, james_nicoll recently commented on your switch from sf to f, and I had hoped he'd pick up on this post and give you a link, too. He gets way, way more traffic than I do.

The way to really drive traffic is to get people with a lot of readers to link to you. Mr. Nicoll certainly qualifies, and he has a lot of sf readers following him.

You know, he pretty much friends back anyone who friends him...

Where did James comment on that? I skimmed through his entries back to November and didn't see it.

So he did, albeit inaccurately. Thanks.
