Jaeson Smith Private Eye, about to be proofed, rewritten, maybe shredded......

Well, at present it's only novella sized at 43,000 words, but there's no sense in adding words that don't contribute to the story. The character has been a side plot, parrallel story line in two of my books now, so setting him off on his own, without the interelationship of the Fantasy and Sci Fi, storylines, was going to be tricky, but I think I've sort of managed it.

 

Believe it or not, at $7.31 for a proof copy all the way from the USA, it still works out cheaper than my buying fresh black ink cartridges and paper to print it out!
Crazy world.
Anyway, I would offer to have some 'advance' copies printed for interested folks to have for free for feedback purposes, but last time I offered that, (for Dragon, things went a bit silly).

Well, sixteen people have copies of it now. If anyone wants to message me with feedback, I would be happy to {read} hear it.

 

My plan at the moment is to do a second novella, wherein he attempts to deal with the issues raised in the first, or just successfully run away. That's always an option.

Okay, I'm 2,805 words in to number two, my proof copy of number one hasn't arrived yet, but at least five friendly readers are going to let me know if they spot any blunders in the first book. Fingers crossed.

Interesting problems with the 'second' tale, which readers of number one will {or might not} appreciate.

Well, 7,583 words into number two...............

I have my Proof copy of number one to go through as well. I'd been through quite thoroughly before uploading, but when you're a team of one, things get missed.
