EBook Published: Unfettered

cover-unfetteredUnfettered is here.

Well, at least the digital version is!

The physical hardcovers should arrive today if the freight company is to be believed. 5000 copies. A lot for a small press. The proceeds from sales go toward alleviating the medical debt I garnered from treating cancer two years ago. I am happy to report that debt is almost gone. I suspect it will be entirely gone by the end of the year.

The story of Unfettered is a good one. The science fiction and fantasy community rallied around me and for that I’ll be forever indebted. As a token of appreciation, I decided to post the eBook edition of Unfettered a few days early!

Here is the table of contents for Unfettered:

  • Foreword by Patrick Rothfuss
  • Introduction: On Becoming Unfettered
  • Imaginary Friends by Terry Brooks (a precursor to the Word/Void trilogy)

I’m not ashamed to say that mighty forces came to my aid. There are some great stories in Unfettered, something for everyone. It is available as an eBook on the Kindle | Nook | Kobo | iBooks for the price of $9.99.

The hardcover edition will begin shipping by the weekend and shipping will take me up to three weeks, I suspect. I will ship out oldest orders first. Until you receive your physical copy, you may want to try the eBook!

And SHARE this news via social media and the like! The more people who know about it, the better!

Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Does that shipping include the signed leather ones ….. 🙂 ??

  2. Any chance those of us who bought the signed/numbered version can get a free copy of the ebook? It seems silly to spend money on the same book twice when we’ve already spent $150 on it.

  5. Hi Shawn,

    That’s fantastic news about a slip case for the S&N. How would I go about adding a regular (reading copy) trade to my order of the S&N. Being in Australia shipping is expensive so it would save me some dollars to get them shipped together (I have patience).


  6. I clicked the above link for the iBooks version and it says that the item is not available.

    1. Additionally, I checked in the iBooks store and it’s not there.

      1. It’s not there. It has nothing to do with me. I uploaded it at the same time as I uploaded for the Kindle, Nook, and Kobo. It’s all on iTunes.
