The GLEAM UPON THE WAVES swag set is complete

Up until now the Gleam Upon the Waves swag set has been missing a key piece. Remember, a few weeks ago, when I mentioned I was working on a top secret bookmark? Well, I am please to say it has arrived in all its horrific wriggly glory. Avert thine eyes from the madness-inducing tentacled terror of The Bookmark of the Deep!

Answering Questions About the Upcoming GLEAM UPON THE WAVES Launch

We’re ten days out from the arrival of Gleam Upon the Waves, the fourth book in The Bell Forging Cycle. Since its release date announcement, I’ve had quite a few emails from readers with some really great questions. So, I figured putting together a post where I answer them publically would be helpful for everyone!


Where can I preorder the ebook?

Everywhere! In fact here’s some links:

Kindle – Kobo – Nook – Apple Books – GooglePlay

While you’re at it, you should add it to your Goodreads.


Can I preorder the paperbacks?

For reasons I can’t comprehend, Amazon doesn’t actually allow for pre-orders of physical copies—at least not for Amazon-printed titles. (My books are printed through Amazon’s KDP service, formerly CreateSpace.) Trade-paperbacks are planned. I have a proof sitting next to me as I write this post. I’ll be pushing them live on the 30th, and you’ll be able to order them then.


Are you going to be offering signed copies?

You betcha! The plan is to have signed copies back in my story after the 30th. I realize my story has been empty for much of the last year (when the pandemic hit, I didn’t order any more books since I wasn’t going to conventions.) But I should have fresh new stock arriving soon, and the store will reopen. Believe me, I’ll be posting about it.


Do you have ARCs for reviewers?

I do. I wrote a post about it here with all the details.


Will there be book sets available?

Yep! The Roader Pack is slated to return in a fancy new 2021 format. I’m currently building out the newest swag set and waiting on shipments. I’ll post about it when they’re available.


That covers most of the typical questions people have asked. If you have a question I haven’t answered leave a comment below or reach out to me via email.

Ten days, roaders!

Old Broken Road

Old Broken Road Trade Paperbacks Now Available From Barnes & Noble

If you haven’t gotten your copy of the gorgeous Old Broken Road paperback your options as to where you can purchase it has increased. It’s now available from Barnes & Noble and should be available in other bookstores as well. (If you can’t find it they can probably order it.) If you do you book buying online, you can now get copies from any of the links below:

Barnes & NobleAmazonMy Store

One benefit for buying online: if you choose to buy from ones of the big store it’s currently on sale for less than twelve dollars. It’s normally fourteen bucks. So that’s a savings of sixteen percent! While I cannot compete on pricing or shipping for my own store, copies bought directly from me come signed, and include an Old Broken Road swag pack, and you get a digital DRM-free ePub emailed on the same day.

If you finished reading, please do me a favor and leave a review! Goodreads is always a great choice, or you can leave a review from where you bought your copy. A quick review takes very little time and goes a long way in helping me out and you’re helping out other readers as well.

Thanks again for all the support! I hope you all enjoy your trip down the Old Broken Road. There’s a lot more to come.

SIGNED Paperbacks Are Here!

My God, it's full of Stars!
The wait is over! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably saw my post showing a shipment of books that arrived at my doorstep yesterday. That means the signed paperbacks of The Stars Were Right are finally here and are now available!

Buy ’em at: store.kmalexander.com

You can get a signed individual copy for $14.00 + shipping or you can get it in what I am calling the “Roader Pack” which includes a signed book for yourself and another unsigned copy to give away to a friend at a discount (also plus shipping). “Caravan Packs” will be coming soon as well and will be tailored specifically for book clubs.

Really excited to finally have these available. If you don’t like paying shipping you can still buy a paperback copy of The Stars Were Right directly from Amazon (at Amazon’s slightly discounted price and with their incredibly fast shipping.) You can also try your luck and enter The Stars Were Right Book Giveaway happening over at Goodreads and enter and win one of 5 signed copies I’m giving away for free on January 5th. Winners will be notified directly and announced in The Telegram, my whenever-something-cool-happens newsletter.
