Novel Updates for August 2018

Now I understand why self publishing is so perilous. The good news is that Soft Hearts, Hard Memories is now ‘name your price’ with the suggested price of $4.95. The bad news is that ordering physical copies from Amazon is so untrustworthy that I’ve pulled the edition from their store. I had determined some time ago to avoid Amazon at all costs, and it looks like my first feeling on the matter was right.

That said, I’ve been busy with the ACME Resource Pack for Minecraft, which Tumbleberry and I are updating to support Minecraft 1.13. It’s a somewhat tumultuous journey, but it has proved to be a good opportunity to revise textures we’ve not worked on since we started this project six years ago. The Sliver of Light series is being collected into a single volume, which I project to run approximately 150,000 words in length when complete. I had hoped to complete it this year, but that’s not likely to be the case, so I don’t currently have a projection about when that’ll be done.

I’ve also been poking the idea of a proper sequel for Sector Bomb, which is one of my most profitable books on Smashwords (my profile). I have the raw material, but I need to spend a fair amount of time reworking the story. I’d be glad to do it, since I’d like to see Aaran healed up after the events of Sector Bomb. If you’ve enjoyed that story and would like to see more, consider buying it full price as a vote in that direction.

On other lesser notes, I’ve presently dropped off the face of the game reviewing planet. I’ve been playing, but not writing about what I’ve been up to. Maybe I’ll crank something out about the new titles I’ve picked up for the Nintendo Switch, but that’d cut into time I need to put into Sliver of Light. We’ll see.

One step at a time! Ta!

Eschewing the Silly

This is exactly why I didn’t get into NaNoWriMo. I’ve a story with an ending, now, but it gets in the way of the first part of a novel that needs to be finished. I’d hoped to include it in Bold Curves, but … until it’s ready … that won’t be happening. It might, cialis.html mind you, and become part of the anthology available for pre-order thanks to Smashwords. Bold Curves will be retailing for a price of your choosing. While I’ve been quiet, I have published also A Thief at the Gala and Sector Bomb, both free as well.

That’s all for now.

Every One Fight Retails at your Descretion

EOF-Smashwords 08-15-2014

Careful, clicking this will take you there!

Instead of delaying Every One Fight to rename it, which I considered, I decided to change the Smashwords Edition to “whatever you wanna pay” model in advance of the Amazon and KDP release, since the first sale was made when the book was available for nothin’. The Amazon Edition will retail at $1.99, with MatchBook enabled for the sum cost of nothin’. Continue reading

Premium and an Interview

Four days ago Every One Fight was accepted to Smashwords Premium, which means it is available, well, everywhere. Goodreads, even. Scary. I’d love to say it’s in print, but it’s not. Smashwords is for the moment my sole publisher. It’s great but not. On a brighter note I completed my interview, which I will actually link here.
