I'd like to say thank you to everyone who downloaded Discord's Child last week–I hope you enjoy it. Read an Ebook Week is now over, but The Exiles of Ondd novels are still available from Smashwords and Amazon. I'd also like to say thank you to all the other authors who took part in the event. I had great fun browsing through the fantasy titles that were discounted or free. My problem was how to choose from the hundreds that were available.
    Even ruling out the titles that are always free, rather than only for the period of the sale, left pages to scroll through. I whittled the list down a little further by ruling out any titles that were below novel length or that were part two or three of a series if I hadn't read part one. That still left a huge number, so I resorted to more or less choosing some at random, only reading the blurb first. Several were the first novels in series and I'm bound to get hooked. Once I've read them, I intend writing some reviews.
    First, however, I shall be reading the latest Third Flatiron Anthology: Principia Ponderosa. This includes 17 weird and wonderful tales of the Wild West mixed with gothic, SF, steampunk and more, and on the evidence of previous anthologies, promises high calibre, thought-provoking entertainment. The anthology is available at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MYEJ89T or you can find out more at http://www.thirdflatiron.com.
    I might just get this done before the publication in paperback of Discord's Child and Discord's Apprentice on CreateSpace, which is planned for 1st April. Having agonised over whether to open a Twitter account @ExilesofOndd, I've not only been having fun tweeting extracts and background comments from Ro, I've been getting some really encouraging feedback. This is another reason why I want to review the books I've recently downloaded: it's good to know what others think of your work.
