Today is release day for The Collapsing Empire in the US and Canada (the UK gets a release on Thursday). It's available right now in hardcover and eBook at your local book store and all your favorite online retailers. It's also available in audiobook, narrated by Wil Wheaton. I'm really excited that the book is now out and everyone can read. I like it a lot and hope you will too.

Remember also that I'm touring the US to promote the book, starting today and going all through April. If you want to see where and when, check out my Tour page on my Web site (link below). I hope to see you out there!

If you have an hour to kill -- and who doesn't? -- here's a long video interview with me from the SFF180 site, talking about The Collapsing Empire. For cat fans, one of the Scamperbeats makes a cameo about five and a half minutes in. Enjoy!

And now for something completely different: My friend Joan of Dark (old roller derby name) has a knitting show called "Drunk Knitting," in which she and a guest drink and knit and talk. I don't drink alcohol (Krissy sits in as my stunt drinker), but I attempt knitting and talk about Centaur butts and getting covered in frosting on Neil Gaiman's lawn. It's fun! Check it out.

So, the folks at Tor want to give you enough of my books that you can do a construction project with them:

(US/Canada only, I'm afraid. Yes, I know, everyone else. Sorry)

Quick check in to let you know that Chapter Three of The Collapsing Empire is now up and readable on Tor(dot)com. It's the last preview chapter we're putting up. Hopefully, if you've read the preview chapters, you're now inspired to check out the full book on March 21. (And by "check out" I mean "buy." Hey, I got a kid going off to college.)
