Still breathing the last I looked. :)

For some background -- my bio is here: http://www.dianeduane.com/diane-duane-biography

I'll add the link to the bibliography / filmography later, as it's presently a mess and needs to be updated. (Actually the whole site is in the process of being updated at the moment, but the update isn't ready to go live yet. Maybe next month...)

Unfortunately not. We have had multiple ***very*** negative results from publishing our ebooks as PDFs, so we don't do that any more.

What I can do is suggest lots of ways that our ebooks can be read even if you don't have a dedicated e-reader. Check the page here (just now updated):

Thanks for asking, though.

BTW, we just added a Guide to Sideloading page:

For those downloading ebook bundles from Ebooks Direct who might want some assistance in how to get our ebooks into their Kindles, Nooks, Kobos or whatever: we now have a brief how-to guide here --

This should simplify matters a bit for those who haven't done it before.

Cheers -- DD

No problem! And it's a pleasure.

No problem at all. Chalk it up to a couple of alert purchasers who noticed that their download-link pages only had the NMEs listed on them.

The tl;dr version of this story is that the Ebooks Direct store presently uses two different systems to fulfill digital orders, and we're in the process of switching our inventory from one to the other. It seems that the app the store uses to create sales bundles doesn't like it when an order is split between the two different fulfillment engines, and was having trouble with the second half of the order. (shrug) No idea why. Anyway, the quickest solution was to create an identical item using the older fulfillment engine and then edit everybody's orders to include that item, and then resend the orders. An exciting hour or so for me, but no worse than that.

And as for the discount: it's a pleasure. :)
