Afterlife VI: STONES is done!

Cover Prototype, by Pablo Defendini

In 2011 I did a Kickstarter campaign to support the ebook design of The Afterlife Series. Multiple agents had tried to sell it, and it never caught an editor’s eye, despite being the most popular thing I had written at the time (for my listeners, anyway.) I put a high stretch goal on there, promising if someone pledged $1k I would write another novella in the series. I didn’t think it would actually go.

It did.

Life got complicated after that. Never mind that I had no idea what I was going to write. No spoilers, but at the end of Book 5: War, the fate of the characters was pretty well sealed. Then I got a deal to write two books for Orbit, and I got into an MFA program. So I blinked and three years had passed. GAH.

Long story short (shorter, anyway) this year I finally got down to writing the novella, then sent it off to a classmate for editing, then sat on the edits for a while. I just recently got through them all, and sent the book off to my designer. It’s done!

I emailed a PDF of the book to the Kickstarter supporters, and people who had supported me via Patreon (hint, if you support now you can get the free PDF long before it goes to the ebook stores!) So the book is out there to a select group, and it will be available via B&N, Smashwords, and Amazon as soon as the design is done.

But for my part, except for the ebook uploading and all that, The Afterlife Series VI: Stones is done.  And the relief I feel is monumental.

I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo this year, again. I don’t have a good track record, but what the hell, it’s fun. I’m not sure what project I’m working on, but I have a couple of things going on right now so it won’t be hard to settle on one.

And again, if you are a Patreon supporter, you will get a daily NaNoWriMo audio file. NOTE: If you’re a supporter and don’t do NaNo and don’t want the files, you can temporarily change your support level to “no reward” and you won’t get the emails. You will still get your weekly mail from me, and you can change back in December. That said, if you are currently at No Reward and want the files, you need to change to at least the $1 reward.

[EDIT to fix error in audio. Sorry about that.]

The Afterlife Series gets a shine

I’ve hired a copyeditor to go over The Afterlife Series again, to shine it up real pretty-like, and I’ve made other changes as well.

I had totally forgotten (shame, shame) that part of the Kickstarter rewards had been Tuckerizations for some supporters. These names are now included in the books.

The end of War hosts a sneak peek of book 6 in the series: STONES. (previously it had a sneak peek of Playing for Keeps.)

As I prepare for the release of STONES, and of the Storium* world that will be built around The Afterlife Series, I’ve decided to change the Creative Commons license on the existing books. I’ve tried for nearly eight years to get this work on book shelves (meaning published by a trad. publisher). With STONES and the Storium world, I think I will be done. I’ve changed the license to BY-NC-SA, meaning you can create all you like in the world, fanfic, art, whatever, provided you

  1. Include my name on every file (BY- attribution)
  2. Do not sell what you create (NC- non commercial)
  3. And share the file with the same license as I have. (SA- share alike)

Lastly, in trying to upload the new files to Smashwords, I encountered a problem. My files had been grandfathered in when Smashwords made their changes to their cover guidelines, but apparently uploading new content (note, I didn’t change anything about the cover art) raises a red flag, and now my books are non-published on Smashwords until I get new cover versions from my designer, who’s a very busy dude. If you’re a Smashwords customer and want the new versions, all I can ask for is your patience.

I’m uploading to Amazon right now.

*Holy crap Storium crossed $100,000 in pledges recently!
