David's been blogging the process of reissuing my out-of-print books. Here are the entries:

You can see the subject matter in the links, so I'm not going to try to get fancy.

The Smashwords link for Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary is up on the Blaisdell Press page, for people who want one of those formats or who want to avoid Amazon.

David is doing all the heavy lifting for this; I am critiquing the covers if anything occurs to me, and going over the scanned text to make sure it accords with the published version, and also to see if there is anything egregious that I want to change. I'm resisting changing anything -- people have read and reread these books to the point that even errors are canon to them, and I don't really want to be messing with anything that's not incredibly terrible. When Firebird reissued the Secret Country books, I did make a bunch of corrections, mostly to The Hidden Land, which must have gone through production at some hectic moment for the original publisher: it originally emerged into print with the dedication and acknowledgements missing, and a number of errors I had corrected either in copy-edit or on the galleys still extant, most notably a bit where Ellen has a line of dialogue she is no longer present to speak. I was very happy to have a second edition with all of that stuff fixed. But I left many other things alone. In a number of discernible and vital ways, I am no longer the person who wrote those books, and therefore am not, strictly speaking, qualified to be changing them.
