Necromancy Isn't Dead

It's been a tad quiet here for a while…

Let's see if I can bring this site back from the dead…

Starting full of hope and determination at the end of 2011, it didn't really ever fully get up to speed. I didn't, that is.

But I'm full of hope and determination again, starting in 2018! And missing one key ingredient: a job.

Yep, I quit my regular day job. Looking at my finances I decided I had enough of a buffer to spin it out for about a year, so I took the plunge. I realize I'm in a very lucky position to be able to do that.

Since the start of this year I've been working on writing, writing, and writing. It's been going quite well, I've written over 25.000 words. I've finally found my way around the plot for one of my long worked-on stories, making good progress. This one seems to be heading towards a short novel length. We'll see.

I've also nearly finished the second short ebook in a series I started in 2012. And finally decided on the series title for that series. In the coming days I'll re-issue the first ebook with a new title, and a few days later I'll release the second ebook. I'll post about it here when the time comes.

So, for now, that's it: I'm back and I hope to make it work this time...

Ebook Pricing

Dean Wesley Smith highlighted a comment from one of his readers (Teri Babcock) about ebook pricing in its own blog post. It argues for saner ebook pricing, and I mostly agree. I've been thinking about raising the prices on my two ebooks for a while now, and will probably follow through Real Soon Now™.

A telling quote I think:

Read the full comment and a few follow–up remarks by Dean here: The New World of Publishing: Book Pricing from Another Perspective.

I'm still a bit wary of pricing my ebooks too high, so the coming price hike will probably be small. I was thinking around $3 for removed (because that is really quite a short story) and around $4 for removed.

I Miss Firefly

This QA with Nathan Fillion at Dallas Comic Con is great; maybe I should start watching Castle...
