Change Is Here

I'm quite happy to say that after many weeks of work the site has evolved.  I'm hoping to slowly increase the volume of art that's associated with the site.  I also want to take a moment to thank the tireless efforts of Allan Libby, without whom much of this would not have been possible.

Beyond the website I've made considerable changes to the Nook and iPad versions.  Now the Nook, Kindle and iPad version are all properly formatted (thanks to John Henninger for help with the iPad version) to match the print edition.  The iPad version is designed with iBooks Author, which means it's only for iPads, but if you want to read on an iphone I believe the kindle app will suit your needs.

I am already hard at work on the prequels (The Guardian Mythos) but with some other real life events demanding my time and energy I'm going to ease up on the speed at which I'll be working for the next few months.  I need to recharge my batteries some after spending the last couple months burning the candle at both ends.

With the fancy new site up I'm intending to get more posts done as I continue to work on the prequels.


While the weird formatting of the original Nook and iTunes versions bothered me for some time a lot of problems arise when trying to do so much independantly.  As a result of my displeasure with the formatting compromises I had to make and royalty issues from purchases I've reduced how much I work with Lulu to just the hardcopy editions of the books.

While going through them, in order to sell the electronic editions at $0.99 USD, I  had to assume no royalties if someone tried to buy through Lulu, (what was essentially the source) and hope they purchased through B&N or iTunes instead.  It also meant a lot of messy links for people wanting to purchase a product I wasn't entirely happy with because B & N had myriad search engine issues for the books.  Now that I've taken direct control over those versions I'm much happier with the quality and intend to continue to keep as much control over the layout and design as possible.
