I’ve been a little MIA lately, but wanted to give you a short update on where things stand. My self-edits are all finished on paper, just need to type them into the main file, and then Wolfen the novel is off to my editor on July 14th. Only 4 days left–YIKES! I am also working hard on something really, really cool, which I hope to unveil somewhere around the release date. I don’t want to do it too soon, because the potential for spoilers is huge, but the handful (read: TWO) people who are seeing it come together assure me that it’s going to “kick ass” and that “people will want sequels” (no, there is no sequel in the works… Read More »Wolfen Update
This is the type of post I don’t like writing. Mainly because I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I am writing it now because this issue is something everyone should be paying attention to, readers, publishers, and authors alike. This morning I did my usual rounds of news-checking, which includes reading the Smashwords blog. If you get a chance, give this article on Amazon vs. Hachette a read. It’ll be an eye-opening experience.
A quick recap: Amazon is trying to lower the royalty rates it pays to Hachette publishing house. Hachette does not want to agree. The negotiations have led to some pretty nasty practices by Amazon to list Hachette titles as out of stock, advertising “similar books at lower prices”, etc. Basically, here’s what you need to know:

I promised myself I would wait, but who am I kidding? I have no self-control when it comes to pretty things. So I suppose there is nothing more to say on the matter except, “Ta-daaah!” (and to tell you that you can now read the prologue to Wolfen here. Enjoy!)
I am breaking my own rule and rewriting the end chapter of The Beast. I am not happy that I have to do it, but it must be done and I am just OCD enough to want to do it.
This story truly is very near and dear to my heart and I was stunned and humbled by the wonderful response it’s gotten already as an eBook. You, my dear readers, have shown me so much love in the past few months I wanted to do something special to celebrate it.
There is a new world order in place and your choice is simple: Adapt or die. — Wolfen
