Happy book birthday, 101 Ways to Die!
IMPORTANT REMINDER: The price for 101 Ways to Die will be increasing to $5.99 tomorrow morning. If you preordered, the preorder price is honored, as the book released today. This applies to ALL vendors. (The per novel patreons paid the standard $5.99 rate, which applies to ALL books ranging in price to $4.99 to $7.99.)
The original short novel, save for some typo corrections, is the same as it was in theDirty Deeds 2 anthology. However, it has four new short stories following the adventures and misadventures of McMarin and her new friend! These are slices of life stories, and I hope that you enjoy them!
For those of you reading on Patreon (Monthly or Per Novel), Smashwords, B&N, Kobo, Apple Books, or through the various public library systems, I hope that you enjoy the pilot! As these networks do not have error-reporting tools, I’m able to show you some of the fun behind-the-scenes stuffs that would not be otherwise published due to Amazon’s error-reporting tool.
Expect to find pilots and other shenanigans moving forward at these vendors. And yes… because they are pilots, because they are things I would not otherwise publish, Amazon CANNOT receive these stories.
I am penalized when people report errors, and these pilots have errors. They have plot foopahs. They have consistency mistakes. That is because these are behind the scenes works that I normally put in a little drawer and keep to myself while pondering what gets turned into a book and what does not get turned into a book.
As such, Amazon will not be receiving the pilots and bonus experimental works I will be including in the back of every novel moving forward. If you want the experimental stories, you will need to purchase on Smashwords to be able to sideload the book into your kindle or request it from your public library to read via Overdrive or similar library apps.
Should Amazon change their error reporting policies, the pilots and drivel short stories will be added to their original titles (beginning with 101 Ways to Die). Until then, I recommend purchasing from Smashwords or making use of the Per Novel Patreon.
The Patrons have been using the bookfunnel app, which I hear is a very pleasant reading experience!
P.S.: Due to Amazon’s restrictions on bonus content, the pilots and bonus short stories that do not have covers stating there are bonus tales within must be less than 10% of the length of the main title. Should Amazon remove its error reporting tool, this may result in Amazon not receiving some pilots due to their length. (Because unfortunately… people will report the bonus pilots should they exceed this length.)
Final bit of news… I bought this new ereader, and I absolutely LOVE it. It is an absolute dream to hold, I love having buttons to click to turn pages, but I can swipe / interact with the screen if I want to.
Isn’t it pretty?! HIGHLY recommended. It is so much nicer than ANY of my kindles.
So… let’s talk about Meredith, shall we? Yay or Nay?
