60k of text in one burst is basically two updates worth, so I guess that makes up for missing Wednesday. This one’s been a bit difficult for me to write; I was improvising a lot of it, and while it FELT like a coherent character arc, I wasn’t sure until I was done if it worked or not. I’m a bad judge of my own work, so I’ll leave winner/unwinner up to you.
The other major development this week is the Forsaken Shores book going on sale! Sixteen bucks nets you a print copy of my second book, complete with a bonus chapter you’re never gonna find online. When Emily peeks into her daughter’s future, what does she see…? Drop a few bucks and find out.
Monday or Tuesday, the Kindle version is available. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need an actual plastic Kindle reading device; you can read Kindle books on your PC, or your phone, or dang near anything that parses bits. So, if you want an economy option, there’s that. I’ve also enabled lending, so you can lend the book for 2 weeks to a friend. (Amazon only allows you do this once per book, period, which sucks, but hey.) Like First Age, it’s not using DRM, so you can make a backup copy or move it to another device all you like. I doubt my fans are the kind of bastards that’d pirate it. I doubt anybody would WANT a copy, really. My audience numbers in the tens.
I’m trying to decide what I tackle next. Editing/proofing and writing a bonus story for London’s Fog is on the table, but so is the next Second Age story, starring everybody’s favorite PTSD age-locked superheroine, Astro Gal. At the moment, I’m considering doing both tasks at once. That may mean smaller updates, or ones that don’t go up at the stroke of midnight the previous day. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t even have an OUTLINE right now and need to have content up Tuesday at midnight, supposedly. I makes no promises; this is a weird time for me.
As always, feedback, reactions, wtfs, proofing, or just comments in general welcome. You can post anonymously, with a Facebook account, or with a LiveJournal account.
EDIT: Remember that Crowdfunding LJ community award I was up for? They’re voting again. I can’t actually win it since I’m up against an erotic fiction series that got 150+ votes last time, but I’d love to get second. Drop a vote in the box today!
