Sherwood Smith

Writer of fantasy, historical romance, and science fiction

Category: Uncategorized


Writer status:

Home again as summer lingers on. I love traveling to the east coast each year, but then it’s always good to get home to my family and dogs, and to my own bed, my desk, my books and maps and things.

And so, back to my writing projects, with a brief break at the end of November for a local con, Loscon. I’ll be there two days, Friday and Saturday.

Publication status:

The first half of Time of Daughters I had a quiet release, and I am eager to complete preparation of the second half for publication in early December.

Also out, Lily and Crown, a novella giving Colend’s origin story. Of course it has a masquerade central, because Colend.

The Wren series is now together in ebook form.

Being one of the many authors who have no skill (or budget) for marketing, I am grateful for word of mouth from readers. Lately this wonderful review came to my attention. It feels so good to have years of hard work acknowledged and appreciated by someone I’ve never met and am unlikely to ever meet, but even more wonderful is the suggestion of influence.

I’m trying to learn how to do newsletters. If you’re interested in receiving one when I have something coming out, sign up here to be notified. I promise I will only send one out when I have actual news.

Why I link my books here whenever I can

BVC (which offers its e-books in mobi and epub formats) was formed by a bunch of writers as a cooperative publishing effort. Books offered cross all genres, from science fiction to romance to historical to mainstream. We function as editors, copyeditors, formatters, cover artists, and site maintainers. We offer both reprints (currently in e-form, but we’re looking at print options) and new books. 95% of the proceeds go to the authors! That means that the author actually earns most of the money you pay, instead of publishers and big venues like Amazon, B&N, and iTunes.

Here is our latest offering, and this is my bookshelf.
