Back to Transcendent

To anyone who knows me personally, this probably isn’t a surprise in the slightest.  With my work on MegaTokyo:Endgames wrapping up (I’ll have a release date for Isle of Donne soon, I promise), I’m back to work on a concept that has been burning in the back of my mind for the last year.

(To the four people who wanted me to go back to my “Gate” series… sorry.)

But I’m approaching Transcendent a little differently than just writing a novel.  The release structure for this series will be almost like the serials of the past (and kinda like seasons of TV shows now).

The goal is that once the series gets spinning, that I’ll release 20-30 page “episodes” that you’ll be able to buy through Amazon Kindle e-books, and after a 10-12 page “season” they’ll be compiled in book form that you’ll be able to buy for all you dead tree collectors.  I feel it will lower the bar of entry (which is what kills a lot of “new” writers), while at the same time keeping the larger novels for those who want them on their bookshelves.

And yes… these will be Kindle exclusives.  It’s admittedly a mercenary decision, as my sales from Amazon lapped Barnes and Noble and Kobo combined several times over.  For the price points I’m going to be selling these at… I’m going to need the higher cut that comes from giving the Kindle exclusive publishing.

Which brings us to price.  The plan initially is that each episode will run for $1 ($0.99 technically), and the accumulated seasons will be in the $12-$15 range.  I’m trying to keep prices down, folks.  I know it’s really hard to have much money to spend, after all.  I wish I could do better.

Anyway, I’ll keep updating as I get closer.  Still really early in development at this point, but I understand that radio silence is one of the worst things to have as a nobody writer.  Thanks for keeping in touch!
