I’m enjoying a stretch of relaxation today. I’ve “finished” my cover and unloaded a fair amount of stress going forward. I entrenched myself in learning Photoshop over the last few weeks, and it was something that took a bit longer than I expected. I’m no expert now, but I’m no longer lost. Cheers to that.
Now for some bad news. I will not be releasing The Corridor in paperback. There are two reasons for this; first, it’s too short. That’s really the short and skinny of it all. Second, I plan on doing a follow-up to The Corridor. This semi-sequel will also not be too terribly long but will make for a worthwhile paperback when packaged with The Corridor. Since I plan on releasing a paperback of both novellas combined, I don’t want to sell the first one alone and then piss off buyers by releasing it again with the second novella. I consider that to be rude and unfair to any reader who plops down cash for a book. Hopefully you can agree and understand.
Now, for the sake of learning, I do plan on doing a paperback upload to Amazon in order to learn the process, learn the mistakes and how to fix them, so I’m better off going forward. I plan on buying a few for myself before removing the paperback from being available for sale. If you’re super-duper-absolutely-obsessed with having a copy, let me know. I’ll happily snag a couple extras for those who feel they must have them before the combo pack of The Corridor and Citizen Angelica. Who knows, maybe in 20 years these few copies will become the rarest paperbacks on earth and worth millions. I’ll go ahead and dream that dream…
Meanwhile, whilst not involved in absurd dreams, it’s highly likely that The Corridor will be up on these here internets in a August, early August if I have my way. And Bob likes having his way. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has been involved in this process. It means more to me than you think.
