Links are still coming in, but In Forgery Divided has been released through Amazon Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc.! Hurray! (Please buy and review; reviews are extremely helpful)
I suppose, in a sense, this book made it by “deadline.” It was uploaded on April 2nd (though the first live link didn’t appear until after midnight, so April 3rd). In another sense, it’s well over a year overdue (I originally projected that I would have it out in January of 2015. As I hadn’t even started writing by January of 2015, that was never going to happen).
Regardless, it’s out. And I’m exhausted. Tomorrow I’ll register the copyright (it IS protected under US copyright law, but until I register I can’t take legal action, and you must file within 30 days (or maybe it’s 60 days? Something like that) for the full protection, but you aren’t supposed to file until after you’ve published. Yeah, it’s stupid, but the Copyright Office is a bureaucracy, so what do you expect?), then start myself on the print edition.
This is my largest book, to day, running at over 165,000 words by Microsoft Word count. While I don’t have an exact page count, yet, the print version will probably top four hundred pages long.
Writing the book took almost nine months. My editor took four months for his pass. My own review of his edits (which also was a self-editing second pass of edits) took three months.
Fun news: The book somehow sold three copies on Amazon before I was able to find a live link. Two of those sales, oddly enough, were in the U.K. (I’m not certain it’s hit Amazon.au or Amazon.ca yet; those are #s 3 and 4, resepectively, for the sales of my other books). The book went live first on Amazon, then on Kobo, then on Smashwords. In fact, it’s gone live on Inktera — which is a little remarkable, as you have to go through a 3rd party (in this case, Draft2Digital) to get to them. As of when I’m first typing this, it still hasn’t gone live on Nook — they’re the slowpokes, this go around.
Links for sale will be edited in below as I find they’ve gone live, or you can go to the Fennec Fox Press website (where I’ll also be posting links as they go live).
Nook (eventually, a day after everyone else)
