Pulp Literature Press has set up a pre-order page for the hardcover limited edition of What the Wind Brings, my big historical novel that I waited more than forty years to write. There will also be a trade paperback and an ebook, down the road.

If you’re just tuning in, WTWB is a novel based on a series of events that happened in coastal Ecuador and the Andean highlands in the middle of the sixteenth century, when shipwrecked African slaves combined with the local indigenous people to form a new society. They fought off successive invasions by the Spanish colonial power and finally won their freedom.

I consider it the most important piece of writing I’ve ever done. It’s the work I want to be remembered for.

In about a month, Advanced Reading Copies will be ready to go out. George R.R. Martin, Bernard Cornwell, Cecelia Holland, and David Gerrold have all agreed to take a look at the book and consider giving it a blurb.

BTW, the cover is a placeholder. Pulp Literature Press has yet to commission the cover.
