Speaking of Trade Secret. . .
. . .the eArc is now available in every format known to humankind, direct from Baen. Here’s the link.

Remember that eArcs are uncorrected; expect spelling errors and grammatical atrocities of every stripe and patch; names may morph in the middle of the story; continuity may be found in disarray. You have been warned.

Will there be a Trade Secret Audiobook?
To the best of our knowledge, based on a conversation with Mr. Feldberg of Audible at the BEA — yes, there will be an audiobook edition of Trade Secret, to be released simultaneously with the hardcover, in November.

Speaking of Audiobooks. . .
. . .we have here in our hands the contract for an audio edition of The Tomorrow Log. Details regarding publication date and narrator to come.
