My eBook 

I got a note from my publisher the other day that my ebook has been reissued. Not sure why or if this actually has a benefit for me, but if I can bring some attention to it (and maybe sell a few copies) what the hell.

I finished the first draft of the final chapter completing the first draft of my novella. The title of the story is Overlord. Look for it to make its grand debut soon.

I must say, the story turne out pretty well. In the first draft, I concentrated mostly on plotting. As I do the rewrite, I will concentrate on character and style elements. It should take about two weeks, and then it will be ready for the masses.

To whet the curiosity, the mystery involves a reality game show based loosely on Survivor, Big Brother and The Mole. Several game show contestants are selected to live in a compound where they are filmed 24/7, and one of them ends up poisoned. It's a classic locked-door mystery. How can somebody whose life is being broadcast to the world every minute of every day be murdered without the killer being seen?

Check back soon. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I have been on a roll with this story. I now have only one chapter left to write, and the first draft will be finished. I will then bounce the story off a few friends, and do the final edits. Then the story will be ready for publication.

I'm thinking I will create a unique blog for it like I did for Whattheyshouldhaveknown and the Trimbath Exchange, and I will also write a prolog and an afterward. The afterward will have a place for comments, but the story pages will be comment free. In the forward, I will give background on the origins of the characters and discuss in general terms the plots of the first two novels. In the afterward, I will describe my plans for future tales, and I will have a few people to thank.

The forward will be written in the same fictive reality as the story, however, where the story is written in the first person by a character in the stories, the forward will either be written in the omnicscient narrative format, or it will be in the voice of a friend of the usual narrator. I haven't decided yet. The afterward will just be me making acknowledgements and speaking directly to the reader.

More later.
