My Mom introduced me to her over Christmas...I read every one she had at home and got some of the others to read once I got back.  Still trying to get them all but I am wondering what took me so long to get started.  In the back of one of the Omibuses there is a chronology I think in Miles, Mystery and Mayhem.

The chronologies started being added several volumes back.  Fortunately, what she's been putting out in that universe lately is following Miles as he matures, so you don't have to backtrack.  If it's in a chronology, it's already happened to him.

I'm trying to save some of my gift cards for Horizons and Bone Crossed...but I am weak and keep buying books. It's only 20 more days until Horizons! I think I need an intervention.  :P

I'm not going to be much help; I've scored an ecopy.  Free.

Hanging out at her forum in Baen's Bar.  Somebody found that the more he bought, the better the rewards he got.  He made money by giving away 6-10.

More to the point, join up at Baen, silly!   Several of their authors post from daily to weekly in their dedicated areas.  Others, not so much.  Wen Spencer hasn't been heard from in months, and Spider Robinson - umpf.  But Ms. Bujold is on every week or two, depending on her health & state of house remodel or whatnot.  Sarah Hoyt is very active in the Diner, Mike Williamson is on and kind of mean in my opinion in his area.  And others.

And sometimes people get a free websubscription they can give away.

Yeah, like I have time for another forum.  However, I may just have to suck it up and hit the Baen site for LMB.
Find what you love and do it!

I know! I cheated and read the last one in-store; I'll probably do the same for this one. But I go back and buy it when the book comes out in paperback, which is what I did last night for book #3.
