As some of you know, a week before the release of A Discourse in Steel, some clever, amusing rake (and by “clever, amusing rake” I mean “asshole”) uploaded an unauthorized copy of the novel to Amazon, via Amazon’s Kindle Direct Program, and tried to charge for it. As asshole antics go, that’s pretty funny. And by “pretty funny,” I mean “not funny at all and very much a dick move.”
My publisher and I took immediate steps to get the book taken down, but the process seemed to scramble Amazon’s systems a bit (and maybe Barnes and Noble’s, too) such that the ebook release of Discourse was delayed.
That issue appears to be resolved, at least as to Amazon. The Kindle version of Discourse is available for download as of today. Huzzah! The Nook version is, alas, a couple weeks away yet, but it’s coming.
Just an FYI.
