You may have noticed an up-tick in my posts on Twitter and Facebook about a new book that was released today, The Half-Drowned King. I’m biased, and for good reason: my wife wrote it. But I think it is amazing and so do a whole bunch of other people who are paid to know such things.

AUGUST 2017 INDIE NEXT LIST
Over the past few months we’ve been preparing for today’s release. A book tour was a natural extension of the launch, for example. I kept my mouth shut (harder than you’d think) until I was asked to help plan those trips and that has been all sorts of fun. But the biggest highlight for me came a couple months ago when she received an email letting us know the book would be available in flight. To of my favorite things mixing together like that is all sorts of awesome.
JetBlue has a section of its inflight connectivity portal, The Hub, that includes books to read while on board. And a few months back we learned that The Half-Drowned King would be included in that collection. Thanks to Marie who was on a flight early this morning we’ve now seen it in action.
So, yeah. I’m pretty excited that happened.
And expect to read more about the tour bits as the trip progresses.
More from this trip:
- Happily booking a "Standard" airline award ticket
- The Half-Drowned King takes flight
- Backing into Seattle: An Amtrak Cascades Adventure

Wow, that is very cool! I had no idea B6 offered that option through The Hub. And congrats to Linnea! I know this day has been in the works for years, and it’s exciting to see it finally here for you guys.
I see the B6 version only has first 24 pages of 448 total pages and is listed as a sampler.
If you don’t mind, I’m just going to live vicariously through your wife right now, Seth. Pen novel; see novel become inflight entertainment. #LifeGoals
If you write your own novel, Mary you should bring it full circle, and work in a scene where the characters are flying commercially and evaluating the seats, entertainment, and overall passenger experience. Even better, have them comment about the novels available to read on the IFE system.
I think you appreciate this almost as much as me. Over drinks in Long Beach I’ll tell you about the scene I caused when we got the news. 😀
That is kickass, dude.
My preordered copy should be waiting for me at home tonight. Can’t wait to get into it.
Really impressive. It’s rare for book tours to happen for all but well-known authors. Kudos to your wife as it speaks highly of her work.

Very nice, I like.
Thanks for sharing your (well wife’s) personal success!
