elizabethmccoy: A black-haired woman's face. She's glaring. (Kessa)
A list of the stories in my Lord Alchemist fantasy universe:

Plague, a prequel set approximately 20 years before...
Herb-Witch and Herb-Wife, the Lord Alchemist duology.
All That Glitters, book one of the Alchemy's Heirs trilogy.
Crucible, book two of the Alchemy's Heirs trilogy.
The Bear Prince, three folktales from the Lord Alchemist setting.
Legend of the Morning Star, another folktale from the Lord Alchemist universe. (Also available in Russian!)
elizabethmccoy: A girl with a polar bear, titled "the bear prince." (The Bear Prince)
This was my first foray into self-publishing, and therefore needs a page of its own to document all the places that one can purchase it.
The Bear Prince (and other fantasy folktales) is a collection of three folktales from a fictional universe. When small magics are real, what stories do parents tell their children at night? What tales do storytellers spin, so their listeners will toss them a few coins? Find out, in "The Bear Prince," "The Princess and the Sheep's Wool," and "The Jewel of Moon and Starlight."


The Bear Prince's stories are drawn from the Lord Alchemist universe, but the Author's Afterword should provide any context that the stories themselves might lack.

elizabethmccoy: A blue star on a dark blue background, titled "The legend of the morning star" (Legend of the Morning Star)
Though slightly more "mature" than the stories in The Bear Prince (it mentions lovers, without benefit of priests), this folktale entirely free. It is narrated by the opinionated Ches, priest of the wind, who provides a few side-comments here and there.

The Legend of the Morning Star is one of the folktales of the Lord Alchemist universe, but should stand on its own.

The Bear Prince, from Sony's ebookstore. I don't know if Sony allows for samples normally -- I don't see a way to get a sample of the book, alas. So going back to http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/42569 should allow that, at least.

I am delighted to announce that my small offering (99 cents, three stories and an afterword) is now available from the Apple iBooks store.
elizabethmccoy: A girl with a polar bear, titled "the bear prince." (The Bear Prince)
Since I had some stories that were really unmarketable by me in any traditional form I could think of -- fantasy folktales, when one only has three of them, are a very narrow niche -- I decided to see what could be made of them. I commissioned a cover by the extremely talented [livejournal.com profile] haikujaguar, whose site is Stardancer.org, prodded at the stories for a while, and eventually...

The Bear Prince on Smashwords.
The Bear Prince (and other fantasy folktales) is a collection of three folktales from a fictional universe. When small magics are real, what stories do parents tell their children at night? What tales do storytellers spin, so their listeners will toss them a few coins? Find out, in "The Bear Prince," "The Princess and the Sheep's Wool," and "The Jewel of Moon and Starlight."

(Note that the middle story contains language that may be inappropriate for Earthly children.)
I am, even now, considering if I want to tweak the middle story to make it suitable for Earthly children. The kids of the fictional setting would have no problem with it, but it is just one line and it does adjust which categories and tickyboxes I use, and the other two stories don't have that issue.

(Edit: Alas, I have compromised Artistic Integrity to woo the tickybox. The change is being uploaded now.)

When I have determined if I'm going to make that change or not, I'll authorize it for other venues, such as B&N's Nook-store, and the Apple iBookstore.

Word-count is a bit over 6,000 words. 35% of the book is available as a sample. Cost for the whole thing is $0.99, so that it can appear on the Apple iBookstore. I would have chosen a different price (probably more like 49 cents), but Apple won't go that low.

I am very excited to present this ebook to the world!
