Anticipatory Sword

Have I mentioned lately that Ancillary Sword is going to be out October 7? Available wherever fine books are sold!

Another review is out, this time Liz Bourke at Spoiler: she likes it!

So. I gather some number of folks are eager to begin reading. I figured I’d help out. Sort of.

My old friends from the Shejidan message board will recognize this game. Here it is: starting today, I will post the opening of Ancillary Sword, one sentence at a time. I’ll stop once the book is out, because, obviously.

So, without further ado, the first sentence of Ancillary Sword:

“Considering the circumstances, you could use another lieutenant.”

    How about 1 sentence the first day, 2 sentences the second day, 4 sentences the third day, etc? 🙂

    Seriously though – very excited for the next book to come out. I’ve talked about 15 of my friends into reading the first book through various book clubs.

      Hah! Nice try! But that gag, as they say, has got whiskers on it. 😉
