Despite our best efforts, and despite that we practiced beforehand, to be sure that we wouldn’t run over our time — we ran over our time at PhilCon, and did not finish delivering our Writer Guest of Honor Speech. Several people asked and/or suggested that we post it on the web, so that it could be read.

The Kindle edition of Carousel Seas is now available for download from Amazon.
Those who prefer to download their ebooks directly from Baen, may do so from this link.
The Audible edition of Carousel Seas is now available for pre-order from this link.
For those who pre-ordered signed copies of Carousel Seas from Uncle Hugo, I am awaiting delivery of the books from the warehouse. As soon as they arrive, I will — as quickly as I can manage — sign those 100 books and send them on to the Uncle.
Thank you for your patience.
LEE AND MILLER REGRET
Sharon and Steve are very sorry to have to cancel out of Boskone and SasQuan. The reasons are complex, having to do with a challenging combination of financial, time, and health resources. We’re not happy about this, but — our health comes first, as do the two Liaden books that are to be delivered in 2015.
NOTE: We are, with appropriate time to schedule and prepare, available to Skype to conventions and/or fan gatherings. Please write to Steve via Facebook or at kinzelATkorvalDOTcom if you would like to coordinate a Skype event.
