Salvage Right eARC Formatting Errors

Salvage Right EARC news! Please read this slowly, there are Details.

Many of you noticed that the table of contents and the chapter headers in your copy of the eARC were … badly formatted.  In answer to many reports made to me, and transmitted to Baen Tech Support, a formatted eARC  has been uploaded.

If you have a badly formatted eARC, you may go here  to download the corrected file at no charge (this is always the case with Baen, but I want to be clear).

If you discover similar formatting errors in your NEW file, please report those errors to baensupportATprincipledtechnologiesDOTcom

REPEAT: ebook formatting errors should be reported to Baen Tech Support.

I will ask you to please be detailed in your report, if any...

Lee and Miller Heliosphere Writer Guests of Honor

Sharon Lee and Steve Miller will be Writer Guests of Honor at Heliosphere, April 28-30 (only six weeks away).  Long-time Liaden cover artist, David B. Mattingly, will be Artist Guest of Honor.  Chuck Gannon is Special Guest.

We’re really looking forward to this, our 25th GOH appearance, and our first in-person GOH gig since MidSouthCon, in 2018.

We always like to attend a con, of course, but attending as guests of honor is another level of joyous commitment. GOHs are highly visible, and are honored to spend most of their time with the members of the convention.  It is, in fact, an opportunity for us to thank you, for the years of support, and your ongoing enthusiasm for our creation and our characters.

We hope to see you — all of you — at Heliosphere...

Scout’s Progress Book Day!

Yes, you read that right, today is Book Day for the anniversary re-issue of Scout’s Progress! featuring a stunning new cover by Sam Kennedy.

In celebration, we present to you the Authors’ Foreword from the new edition.

Scout’s Progress
Authors’ Foreword

You are holding the more-or-less twentieth anniversary edition of Scout’s Progress, which is something of a shock all by itself.

Scout’s Progress was written in 1993, part of an intended two-book set, featuring two brothers-of-the-heart – Er Thom yos’Galan, whose story was told in Local Custom – and Daav yos’Phelium, whose story is told in this book.

We never expected either book to be published.

Nineteen-ninety-three was . . . an odd time in our lives. We were not at that point working writers, by which we mean that we weren’t selling...
