I worked all morning formatting Past Prologue and I can officially announce that it is DONE.
The free download should now be ready at Smashwords.
Amazon's $0.99 copy should be ready by the end of the day. Remember folks, if enough of you price match, Amazon will drop that price.
I will likely format for Kobo, Google Play/Books and Createspace tomorrow.
The rest of you of use outlets associated with the Smashwords family will have to wait another day or so.
A few notes about the episode itself:
I was surprised when I saw a 35,000 word document staring back at me. It didn't feel nearly that big as I was writing it. I know I went through that terrible period when I didn't know whether I would complete it or not, but once I started up again it felt like the story came right back to me.
In the humble opinion of the guy who wrote it, Episode 4 feels like my most competent work yet. It doesn't have a signature moment the way Deliverance had Serena's (spoiler space) daring escape or Rapture's (more spoiler space) liberation of Carver in it, but I think I portray my characters best in this book. They as well as the world they live in never have felt more real to me.
Anyway, I hope that you readers out there enjoy it. With no unforeseen delays I expect to have Episodes 5 and 6 up before Christmas. I wanted to have this entire project done by the first of the year but that is asking the near impossible.
For now, enjoy Past Prologue.
The Past is now Present.
