link salad (client edition)

* Amanda Downum's first chapter of her debut novel, The Drowning City (The Necromancer Chronicles), is now available on her website. The book will be available August 25th.

* In other online reads, Sharon Lee notes that Baen has posted the first nine chapters of Fledgling, the new Liaden novel.

* Elizabeth Bear discusses what her job is not. Interesting comment threads on this one too.

* C.E. Murphy reports: If both her Brenda Novak auction items (a gift basket and a Tuckerization (your name as a character)) go over $100 by the end of the auction on Sunday, she will do a special give-away on her blog.

As an aside, you can still bid on the proposal critique I'm offering, too.
