Naomi’s DragonCon Schedule

Naomi is attending DragonCon!

That means she will be signing books and partaking in a number of panels! First, she is going to be signing at the Larry Smith Booksellers booth in the vendors hall Saturday at 5pm in AmericasMart, which is across the street from the Hyatt. From the booksellers: “We are in 103,104 and 105 in the middle of the run facing the dealer tables and behind the booths that face the elevator/escalator core.”

That is her one planned signing time. But she is also happy to sign informally if someone grabs her after a panel.

So what panels is she on? Look below!

Contest: Unfettered Audiobook

audiobook-unfetteredUnfettered has been available now for more than seven months as a hardback and an ebook.

For those of you who do not know, Unfettered is the anthology that helped me pay off the medical debt accrued from treating 2011 cancer. I didn’t have health insurance due to a pre-existing condition and sadly Hodgkin’s lymphoma caught me. It couldn’t keep me down though. I’m healthier than ever now.

The silver lining of the cancer was the need to create Unfettered, an anthology featuring short stories written by some of the best fantasy writers working today.

When I approached Naomi about contributing a short story, she immediately said, “Yes! Of course!” I nearly wept at her generosity. Her story, In Favour With Their Stars, is a Temeraire alternate history story. It’s quite cool seeing our favorite characters in a new light!

The hardcover and ebook editions of Unfettered have sold well but a lot of people asked about an audiobook edition. Audible answered that call. They purchased the rights to produce Unfettered as an audiobook and it is now available! The short stories are read by some of the best narrators working today, producing a truly unique audiobook experience.

To celebrate this new release, Audible has given each of the contributors a code for a free audiobook download of Unfettered! Enter Terry’s contest below. It is open to worldwide participation. The audiobook can be listened to in a variety of ways listed HERE. The winner will be randomly drawn and sent a promo code that will allow them to download the book—free! One entry per person please.

And if you don’t want to wait, download the audiobooks for Unfettered and/or my debut novel, The Dark Thorn!

The contest will end on March 1st! You can also enter this contest and the contests on the Terry Brooks website and the Shawn Speakman website!

Good luck!

The Audible Edition of Blood of Tyrants

audiobook-bloodoftyrantsBlood of Tyrants is published by Audible.com in audiobook form.

But apparently, there were some problems with the audiobook itself. Errors, if you want to call them that. Problems that needed to be fixed with the production of the audiobook. You fans noticed them and notified us. Naomi talked to her agent who talked to the wonderful people at Audible.

Naomi wants to let you all know that Audible has promised to have the problem fixed as soon as possible. In fact, the problem is already fixed. It just takes a few days for the new upload to be the correct one and everything should be set right by the end of next week!

If not sooner!

So don’t despair, Temeraire fans. The audiobook is almost fixed! Thank you for your patience and Naomi thanks you for the same!

And if you don’t have the audiobook but want it when all is well, click HERE!
