I am pleased to announce we have released the brand new, updated For Steam And Country. This includes a fresh edit which brings the prose up to my current standards, addressed a couple of continuity issues within the book, and helped a couple of the descriptions which were necessary. It also changed the formatting so it matches all the other books in the series.
Overall, it provides a MUCH better reading experience. If you have read the book — the overall plot really didn’t change, so you can continue with the series without any issues. There were just a couple of spots in the book where there were some errors across different edits (such as something happening in year 16 of Malaky’s reign instead of year 15 when it was supposed to). They’re minor things, but they were bugging me, and they’re fixed now.
If you want to update your file though, everyone who bought the book gets this update FREE. Here’s how you do it.
- Go to “Manage Your Content And Devices” which is here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/mycd/myx#/home/content/booksAll/dateDsc/
- Scroll down to For Steam And Country.
- You’ll see a little “update available” orange bar on it. Looks like this.
- Click the orange bar. You’ll get some terms, then click “Update”. (It warns you you will lose your annotations or place in whisper sync)
- Redownload the book on your kindle. You might need to delete the file then hit download again.
And that’s it! Simple.
If you haven’t picked up the book yet, now’s a great time. I’m adding to the world via short stories I’ve been releasing on Patreon which you can subscribe to and read, and I’ve also started archiving all of the characters on a new wiki-type site called World of Anvil. It’s my goal to get every named character in there for my reference and yours, and if people like it, I’ll keep adding to the history of the world and developing it as I come out with new books. My maps are up there and so are some sketch drawings. This will be the best resource for Rislandia for the near future.
A new print edition will be available later this week.
And For Steam and Country is available here if you’re new to the world. It’s a story about a girl who inherits an airship, and it’s up to her to save her country from a deadly invading force. The book won the CLFA book of the year award, it’s highly reviewed and the series is a #1 bestseller. You’ll love it, just gotta give it a read (also available on audio):
