super quick update

For those who get their news from my blog rather than from Twitter, please be aware that I’ve recently withdrawn my books from Riptide Publishing. What this means in practice is that, for a short while, any titles previously distributed via Riptide (which is to say, anything that doesn’t have the word billionaire in the title) will be unavailable for purchase. I am working to make these titles available again as soon as possible, but it’ll take a little while to handle the logistics of it. I’m afraid I can’t give you an exact timetable but I’ll be starting with the shorter books first, hopefully for obvious reasons.

The only thing I’m still on the fence about is what to do with Sand and Ruin and Gold. While I’m a great believer that, in fiction, length is not an indicator of value I have always been aware that its original list price of $2.99 was a lot for longish short story. I am, however, very fond of it as a piece of work and would like for it to be available so I’m thinking about making it a free download, either here on the website, or for newsletter subscribers.

Otherwise, I’m working as fast as I can and I’m really sorry for the disruption and the inconvenience. Watch his space for more updates.

    Sand and Ruin and Gold is one of my favourites of your stories. I love everything about it, short length included ❤

    Personally, I sometimes think quality should cost a bit more regardless of quantity (number of pages) Sand and Ruin and Gold is a much read favourite of mine.

    Thank you for the non-Twitter update. I don’t have an account and don’t want one. I gladly paid $2.99 for Sand…because I have confidence in the quality of your writing and want to support it, but think it most generous of you to consider offering it for free download.

    Good luck with all the changes!

  4. Maybe this is an utterly unnecessary comment, but just in case anyone’s worried they’ve lost something they’ve already bought, those of us who bought the books from Riptide can still download them (again) from our Riptide accounts. I’m assuming they’d also not vanish from an Amazon account if purchased there.

    Thank you for the update! I’m so glad you did an update on your blog. I will follow your stories wherever they land! Good luck with everything 🙂

    I just found out about Sand and Ruin and Gold, and since I thought I’d read all your work with nowhere to turn, I’m excited to know you’ll rerelease it. Eagerly awaiting news!

    I’m curious: will paperback editions of your former Riptide books be available at some point? I see the ebook editions are live, but are there any plans for paper to join them? (This is a selfish request: I teach Glitterland and Prosperity and Looking for Group, and my students generally prefer to buy print editions.)
