I'm so excited!

The first Torn World anthology is in e-print, and you can pre-order the trade paperback!  The PDF is available today--and if you preorder, you get a copy of the e-book free, so you don't have to wait to start reading. We'll be mailing the first copies in mid-June or earlier, depending on exactly when the printer delivers them.

You can, if you prefer, just buy the e-book. Kindle and other e-versions will become available soon.

Anyone can go here to order:    Family Ties & Torn Skies

Our first, very modest, goal is to sell enough books to pay the printing costs so each contributor gets a paper contributor's copy.

Also--we're producing 300 artist's collector cards, prints of some of the best Torn World art, and our artists have donated a few originals. Details on how to get one (or more) are on the order page.

I was going to post a copy of the cover here, but I keep getting LJ's goofy goat telling me something went wrong.  Oh, well, it's on the preorder page.  You can see it there!

Family Ties & Torn Skies is arranged chronologically in two segments: the isolated snow-unicorn riders of the north, and the sprawling Empire of the south, with information blurbs and introductions to help orient you to this vast and finely detailed setting. Meet the fascinating characters who are shaping our current storylines, and get a glimpse at some of the conflicts and adventures being set into motion. Framed around the topic of family and coming of age, this collection offers 266 page of content in a trade paperback format (5" x 7.5").

Subscribers at Torn World, be sure to log in before ordering, because you get 10% off! (subscribe for as little as $5 and get access to everything at the site!)
