The contracts with Wildside are signed and counter-signed, payment is on the way, and the publisher has asked me to please remove the free version — we want people to pay for the official e-book when it’s released.
Therefore, I’ll be taking down the Epilogue and Chapters Three through Forty; they’ll be gone no later than Monday, possibly much sooner. If there was anything you wanted to re-read, either get it now or wait for the finished book. (Chapters One and Two will remain, as advertising.)
I haven’t finished the revised version; Wildside wants it ASAP, and the contract has a deadline in late May, so I need to get to work on that.
We still don’t have a specific release date for the finished book, but Wildside likes to get stuff out to market and earning money quickly.
There will be a trade paperback (probably print-on-demand), and an e-book. Don’t know about a hardcover yet. A mass-market paperback edition is very unlikely. No word yet on details like cover art or price.
Thanks to all who contributed!
