Free Mistborn Ebook! (Again!)

If you didn't catch the news earlier, Tor has decided to re-launch Tor.com, its official website.  To promote the site, they started offering free ebooks from some of their authors.  You signed up for their newsletter, then got a link to a new ebook each week via email. 

Well, Tor.com is going live next week.  For this one last week, they've put up access to all of the ebooks they gave out during the promotion.  MISTBORN: THE FINAL EMPIRE (first of my trilogy) was one of the books they chose to give away, and so--for a short time--you can get it again.  They've got both a pdf and an html version for download. 

As many of you know, I support giving away books for free.  My experience has been that readers love to own books, and they'll often purchase copies even if they've read the book.  (Or, at the very least, buy the sequel when it comes out.)  So go ahead and grab yourself a copy!

In other news, here's a tidbit for any of you who live in the area of Cedar City Utah.  I was passing through, and happened to stop at a local bookstore--Mountain West Books--and they had a paperback copy of ELANTRIS and one hardcover of MISTBORN: THE WELL OF ASCENSION.  I sighed them, of course, so if you live down that direction and have wanted a signed copy of either book, you can go pick up one of these and support your local independent bookseller!

"Tor has decided to re-launch Tor.com, its official website"

We created this confusion, so we'll explain it!

The "official website" of Tom Doherty Associates, publisher of the imprints Tor, Forge, Orb, Starscape, etc etc, once at "tor.com," has been since early 2007 at tor-forge.com. (Which is itself an alias to a URL in the macmillan.com domain, but never mind.)

The site at tor.com is also an initiative of Tor (with the support and cooperation of other parts of Macmillan), but it's a separate publication, not "the" official web site of Tom Doherty Associates / Tor Books. That's why there's a gigantic "LOOKING FOR TOR BOOKS? GO HERE!" link on top of the front page.

Why did we do it this way? Because we love confusing you and then typing out long arcane explanations!

Because people like me love rushing to the bookstore when new books come in and will buy them for the enjoyment of re-reading a physical copy.

Suggestion for Denver Visit

I sent an email but wanted to make sure you knew about the Rocky Mountain Antiquarian Book Fair on August 1st and 2nd. You may be able to set up a book signing or just enjoy perusing the endless variety of books.
