I haven’t written a blog post for a Saturday in a long time! But I ran out of time this week, and I only like to post once per day now :) So now that the Nogiku Series is coming to a close, I thought about what I wanted to do with REVEALED. Right now, Parts 1, 2, and 3 are all available online for free. They are collectively the first 14 chapters of a novel I had planned as an extra to the Nogiku Series quartet of books. I wrote it during NaNoWriMo of 2012 and got 65k done during that time! But it wasn’t complete, so I thought they may be a good free entry point into the series.
Now that REVEALED has been out for some time, and I gathered data from clicks readers made from the back of the ebooks, I decided they are NOT a good entry point to the series. The obvious entry point is Book 1 (REMOVED), and the people who love the series go on to read the short stories. REVEALED is really only for those that are already reading in this world.
So I’ve made a decision. REVEALED Parts 1, 2, and 3 are coming down from all the vendors on APRIL 15th (or thereabouts since this kind of thing isn’t exact). I will be taking these, adding additional content and more chapters, and will release it as a supplemental novella later on in 2015, maybe November.
For those that have read the short stories, I plan on the first 14 chapters of the novella being the same as the short stories, so you’ll be able to skip ahead easily.
Thanks for your understanding in this. I don’t like the idea of pulling something off the market, but I feel like the novella format will better suit this story and since the short stories were free to begin with, this is not a huge change to make.
Have a great weekend everyone!
