    Wow...I gotta say that maybe I deserved less than three stars on Goblin. No more sending out second drafts! Heh. Seriously...

    Things are going well on the rewrite. I'm not changing too much, but I'm fixing some of the problems pointed out by reviewers as I go - and rewriting a good bit.

    Hope to have it done soon...

    I'll point out on top of the blurb that it was previously published as Goblin and extensively rewritten and edited. Hopefully I won't get too much flack for giving it a new title.

    With this better version, I'll also be working on the print edition. So much to do!

    While your novel had problems, I actually enjoyed it... however, are you sure you want HACK in big bright letters on the same space as your name? It seems like troll bait...
    Sample review:
    1*/5*
    Title more indicative of author than contents of the book. - Troll M. Boggart

    lol bring it on. meant more in a hacker sense and to follow the naming convention of the entire series more.

    a writing hack too, though. a few million more words to go to really perfect my craft.

    thanks for the kind words. hope you'll check out the new version.

    the big finale will be books 9 - 12 of the series.

    i remember i always thought of LoTR as (slow book, getting going book, great book!) ... Return of the king had all the action but without the backstory it wouldn't've meant as much? i dunno.

    we shall see how it goes. it will be closer to the movies coming out.

    Will you update the current ASIN? Or will you unpub "Goblin" and publish "Hack" as an all new book?

    I'm going to unpub the other one shortly and relaunch it as a new ASIN / book. That way the old reviews don't carry over to the new (better) version. At least that's the plan.
