Cheysuli ~ Sword-Dancer ~ Karavans ~ Historicals
Some of the Cheysuli and Sword-Dancer books are out of print as individual novels, but can be tracked down via used and online bookstores. Four omnibus editions–two novels per volume --remain in print and are available in paperback.
A collection of 20 short stories is available in hardcover in Guinevere's Truth and Other Tales, from Five Star Fantasy. I hope to break out the stories–as well as some not in the collection–and post them in downloadable e-format here at my website. This is still in the works, though, and I'm not sure when this will happen. I'll update when I can.
ON THE VIRTUAL SHELVES
Because electronic rights were not a factor in most contracts drawn up 15+ years ago–in some cases, not even dreamed of–literary agents are having to sort out which novels are available for the authors to convert and upload. Contract language is not straightforward, and of course publishers now fight hard to claim various rights description clauses include e-rights, even though it may not appear so.
As yet, none of my fantasy novels have been converted to e-format and made available through various online venues. DAW holds these rights, and their distributor, Penguin, is in charge of converting the entire DAW backlist. Eventually the novels will be scanned and available via Kindle, etc, but I have no say in when. (Authors have very little say in anything to do with their books once sold to publishers.) My agent and I are checking with Kensington to see if we hold e-rights for my historicals. It sounds a simple matter of asking, but, again, publishers are claiming they hold e-rights even if there's no mention of such things in the original contracts. So it takes a while to get straight answers.
However, a few of my early novels–info posted on the OTHER NOVELS page–may be unencumbered and thus I'll be able to convert and upload these.
Several readers have asked if they can write my editor at DAW to urge a faster conversion of my novels. I have no objection to this whatsoever. Such inquiries should go to Betsy Wollheim at DAW Books.
