If you've been waiting for a good time to try out Theft of Swords, now might be that time. Orbit has lowered the price to $4.99 and since this volume contains two complete novels that is about $2.50 per book. I'm really pleased about the sale, and to be honest I have no idea how long it will last, so get it while you can.
For books that have a hardcover release, there is generally a lower-cost mass market version that comes out six months to a year later, with the lower price for the book, the ebook prices comes down as well. Since Theft of Swords was only released as a trade paperback it has (with the exception of a few sales) been pretty much the same price since it was first released. To make matters worse, Orbit has stopped discounting most of the Riyria books (and a large number of Orbit's titles in general). I'm not sure why this is, but it makes the sale even more welcome as when not on sale the books run just a bit under $9.99.
So, if you've not given the book a try, or have a friend you've wanted to start reading and they just haven't yet. Tell them about the sale and save them a few dollars. Hopefully the reduced price will find the series some new readers. And I thank everyone for helping to spread the word. Any success that the books have is more due to your support than anything I did. So I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate those efforts.
