Oh Lord, I'm confess I'm clueless where ebooks are concerned. I have no idea.

Sorry not to be more helpful, but I'm just a freelance editor. I don't know anything about Tor's ebook policies.

No problem, I was just being lazy and looking for a shortcut . I'll look into it myself, and then report back once I find what I'm looking for (DRM free + supporting PayPal would be ideal).

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

OK, it turns out that Kobo, where I purchased some Vanguard installments in the past already via PayPal with no problems, is selling the DRM-free epub version of Only Superhuman for 12,72€ and I went ahead and grabbed that. For fun:



Congrats on your professional accomplishment, Christopher! Now let's hope I like the novel .

(Mini-edit: Replaced the screenshot, the original had a glitch from hasty snapping.)

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

And just in case anyone is that curious about this game change as I am, here's the blurb that TOR/Macmillan have chosen to go with on their DRM free book:

The author and publisher have provided this e-book to you without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied so that you can enjoy reading it on your personal devices. This e-book is for your personal use only. You may not print or post this e-book, or make this e-book publicly available in any way.

That's inserted between the title page and the dedication page.

Downloaded! (And my doctor just put me on 24 hour vocal rest. I get to stay home tomorrow and read. How fortuitous is THAT?)

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

It's probably going to be quite a while before I get to this, but I am certainly looking forward to this when I get around to it. I'm very interested to see what the people here who read it think of it.

Thanks. I'm a middle school choir director, so I'm getting some flak from my colleagues (not to mention the betting going on whether or not I can be quiet for 24 hours.)

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

It arrived today, amazon.ca shipped it yesterday and I always get their packages overnight from Toronto.

A most excellent book, I'm halfway through. It has everything I wanted in a sci-fi book. In fact, it was just the book I was looking for personally at this time.

I never realized just how much Star Trek books keep to a certain "rating" in the movie theatre sense until I read Only Superhuman.

I'm not much for violence...

But yes, my original work, at least in my default universe, does tend to feature more sexual content and language than my Trek work.
