The Demons Within: Epilogue

Well, that wraps up this story, and leads directly into the next, "Speaking With Your Demons".

The story is ready, but I'm holding off while I try to get my next book ready to publish, so I won't post "Speaking" until January.

Meanwhile, the book is available on Amazon, Smashwords and lulu (the Createspace.com store has officially closed).

The Demons Within, Ch. 17

Judging from the responses (few new votes but a drop in scores) that readers weren't entertained by the minor diversion in the story in the latest chapter. That's understandable, especially since it was such a small chapter, thrown in just as everyone is anxiously awaiting news whether Phil will survive his surgery or not.

Still, as you might imagine, it does serve a bigger role in the broader story. Tonight's update will answer many of your questions ... sort of. For the rest, you'll have to wait for the final epilogue (as always)!

Amazon issue

Just discovered that my Table of Contents in Amazon haven't been working. I updated a bunch of them (the most recent ones), so I'd suggest you update to the latest version so they'll be easier to read and navigate.

The Demons Within, Chapter 3

Several notes, especially concerning the books I just published on Saturday.

I hadn't made clear that the "Demonic Issues Box Set" is also available on Amazon. I didn't mentioned it because Amazon's preorder sales aren't counted the same way that Smashwords' are. However, several people started purchasing "The Demons Within", not knowing the Box Sex is now published on Amazon too. It's only $1 off (instead of the preorder price on SW of $8.99), but it's still cheaper than buying the two books individually.

I've also set up my website, www.crumblywriter.net (http://www.crumblywriter.net/crumbly_writers_stories.htm), which has a slightly more graphical interface than SOL. I also post my latest chapters sooner there, so I know whether it works before posting to SOL. You can also visit the more robust site at www.crumblywriter.net, which also features site, book and story updates.

There were a variety of issues with the new releases. Specifically, Smashwords was unable to process the graphic files properly, so if you have trouble downloading large files, or an older device, that's probably your best bet.

I also posted both files ("The Demons Within" and "Speaking With Your Demons") on lulu.com. The graphics work well there, but they don't have the box set. Finally, Amazon has never had trouble processing any file I've submitted to it, so you can usually count on those files.

For those of you unaware, since I moved my "Catalyst" series to 'Premiere Only', I'm slowly posting it to scifistories.com. I'm currently up to book 3, and posting one chapter a day, Monday - Friday.

Finally, with no books ready when the current two books complete, I may slow down to a single chapter a week, just so the delay between stories isn't quite so long, but I haven't committed to that yet.

The preorder and the Box Set were a HUGE success. While I'd previously had issues with preorders, I'd never considered sweetening the deal with a time-limited discount, which made ALL the difference.

By the way, the print version ($9.99) of "Speaking With Your Demons" is gorgeous! I'm also giving away several copies for free on smashwords (in exchange for potential reviews). You can find the details at: www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/253586-speaking-with-your-demons.

Demons Within Late Updates

Just a couple of updates on my latest books, which I finally published today.

I hadn't made clear that the "Demonic Issues Box Set" is also available on Amazon. I hadn't mentioned it, because Amazon counts their preorder sales aren't counted the same way that Smashwords are. However, I've already noticed several people purchasing the first book on Amazon, not knowing that the Box Sex was supposed to be published today. It's only $1 off (instead of the preorder price on SW of $8.99), but it's still cheaper than buying the two book individually.

I've also set up my website, www.crumblywriter.net (http://www.crumblywriter.net/crumbly_writers_stories.htm), which has a slightly more graphical interface than does SOL. I also tend to post my latest chapters sooner there, so I know whether it works before posting to SOL. You can also visit the more robust site at www.crumblywriter.net, which also features site, book and story updates.

For those of you unaware, since I moved my "Catalyst" series to 'Premiere Only', I'm slowly posting it to SFS. I'm currently up to book 3, and now posting one chapter a day, Monday - Friday.

Finally, since I have no book ready when the current two books complete, I may slow down to only a single chapter a week, just so the delay between stories isn't quite so long, but I haven't committed to that yet.

The preorder and the Box Set were a HUGE success. While I'd previously had issues with preorders, I'd never considered sweetening the deal with a time-limited discount, which made ALL the difference.

If you preordered a book, please let me know if you had any issues. I followed SW's advice, but they never specified how to handle the change in prices. If you notice a higher purchase price than you were promised, please contact me and I'll fix it, but Amazon throws a hissy fit if anyone sells their book at a cheaper price than they do.

Lastly, I hope you're enjoying the story. Chapter 3 is a fun chapter, showing a light-hearted side of Phil.
