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
- Include my name on every file (BY- attribution)
- Do not sell what you create (NC- non commercial)
- 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!
