LIFE AFTER DANE made it to #1 in Ghosts, #2 in Paranormal, and #4 in Horror this morning. For those of you who are out of the know, the book’s price has dropped from $4.99 to $0.99 until January 17th, as part of a promotion put on by Red Adept Publishing. More than happy with the results. Looking forward to hearing from all these new readers. Welcome to my world.
CRAWL (A Novelette) is complete. I’ve heard back from two out of four beta readers and all’s good. The book will be going to editing in the next two weeks. You might actually be able to read it before February.
On a side note, one beta reader commented that the novelette is as intense, if not moreso, than CRUELTY. This made me smile.
Speaking of my 600lb baby doll, I have good news…
CRUELTY continues! After numerous talks and many a contractual addendum, I have retained the print rights to CRUELTY: A Serial Novel. This means many things, most importantly, the ability to finish the serial to completion, as I had initially intended. I know you’ve not been privy to all the insider details, and be glad of that because most of it is shockingly boring. Before these new negotiations, I was only going to be allowed one more episode of the serial, wherein I would have to wrap up the story. The film adaptation would have been based on the new three-part version of the story. This was disconcerting, as I would have had to compress about 150,000 words into 80,000. In the end, we came to a compromise. The producers felt that the serial novel and the film should exist separately. I cannot divulge what I had to give up to continue the serial. Let’s just say, I can’t buy as many Twinkies now. Sad Panda…
Anyway, you can expect the next episode some time in the next few weeks. You have no idea how good that makes me feel to be able to say that.
Thank you to everyone who’s ever supported me, no matter how big or small your efforts, I will forever appreciate you. Onward!
