I came home to find my contributor’s copies of my new story A Classic Beginner’s Mistake, along with a few extra for signing! You can order a signed copy (or the ebook, or an unsigned trade paperback) at that link.
Now that I have a story out in book form, I’ve gone ahead and created an Amazon Author page, which you can see here: https://www.amazon.com/author/philip-brewer
I suppose I should add it to my social media contacts, etc.
I shared some preliminary images of the cover of my new book a couple of months ago, but here’s the official cover:
The book comes out tomorrow in ebook form, and you’ll be able to order it here:
A brief synopsis:
On a contract to fix a software bug, Trevo is shamed into entering a fencing tournament where poor folks fight for the entertainment of the wealthy. While diagnosing the bug will earn his pay, the insight from his fencing bouts may prove to be worth even more.
There will also be a print version, and that page will have links for buying it—and for buying a signed version, if that’s what you’re into. (Note that it is a short story and not a novel, even though there’ll be a book version.)
Check it out! I have cover art for my new story! 😍
Due out February 2023 from Water Dragon Publishing!
Water Dragon Publishing has announced the upcoming publication of a new story by me!
We are excited to announce that we have signed an agreement with author Philip Brewer to publish his story, “A Classic Beginner’s Mistake”, as part of our Dragon Gems short fiction program.https://waterdragonpublishing.com/2022/11/water-dragon-publishing-welcomes-author-philip-brewer/
I’ve always been jealous of the sort of successful writer who can afford to design and build their optimal space for writing. But I’ve also read critiques of the idea: A real writer can write anywhere.
So I’m glad to see Cal Newport pointing out that “can write” might be true, and yet fall short:
“Putting professors into stark and spacious modern offices is functional. But is it as conducive to deep thought as the fire-warmed study of the Oxford Don?”
Beer! @author_sdbrewer! Soon: food!
Ready to sell books! @limako is wrapping bundles of his Revin’s Heart books that are out so far.
This photo scarcely shows it, but the dealer room goes on and on. The Water Dragon table is out of sight in the distance, kinda at the left.
I feel so welcome!
