Yeah, getting to read the material for free is a nice perk of the job :)

Kyrathaba, how many people downloaded the book through "the free window"?

I must admit that I was one of them. I'll give you one of my short stories next week so I can repay your good deed.

No need to give it to me. Put it up for sale and I'll buy it. You bought mine, after all.

Yeah, I hear you, 40hz :) Been a bit too ... anxious ... recently to write. Personal problems: on leave without pay last several months because of *!@#:)! ex-spouse's lies (I was about to get custody, and like a cornered snake, she struck).

But it'll happen. Coming close to a resolution, one way or another, in the next few weeks, then I'll write the sequel.

+1 to that. Been there, got the T-shirt -- it's not going to be fun but I'm sure you'll get things sorted out.

All will be well. Hardest part is separation from my children, and the possibility of job loss at the counseling agency I've worked for for 14 years. Make no mistake: false allegations can play havoc with your whole life.

I didn't buy it, I got it with your free code.  :)

Just by chance I looked in the topic. I promise I'll read it one day, I promise  ;)

Btw maybe some friends of mine downloaded it also as I posted your message in one topic with books review (mostly sci-fi). Sorry about that (my "payback" is still open).

Have fun with writing!

On the other hand, there's this dude's recent comments about how he handles scifi book reviews.  Read it here. It's classic.

I just got around to reading Kyrathaba Rising and noticed several typographical errors throughout the book. But maybe I'm reading from an old copy (eBook) and they have already been fixed?

No matter how hard Perry and I tried, he always managed to sneak a few in.  :P

There's still a few in the final copy AFAIK.

But more to the point ... where's volume two?

If you happen to remember any of the typos, or have jotted them down, lemme know. I'll correct and upload the corrected ebook.

As for the sequel, it'll come. Right now, I'm waiting to get back to work after 10 months on leave. I need to do that, and get back in the groove of things, and get my finances a bit tidied, and then I think I'll be able to concentrate on the sequel. Also, once I start getting my regular pay again, I'm going to use some of the money I'm making proofreading to have a proofreader friend scour Kyrathaba Rising.

Speaking of my own proofreading efforts, I've made $546 in ten weeks proofreading others' works. It's so easy to spot their errors. If only my own would leap out at me :) Check out the testimonials of satisfied customers.
