A box set and a collection; those are the two proposals I have in mind at present.
The second ebook box set would combine the Traveler in Black and White, the Talent Seekers and Bravo Victor in one ebook volume. I played about with a cover layout similar to the first box set a little while ago when I didn’t have much to do and my brain wasn’t feeling up to writing. The cover needs more work.
It’s probably a weekend project: putting the three ebooks together, proofing them once more, adjusting the front and end matter, and publishing it. I make it sound so simple!
I don’t know that many people actually want the box set, but I think it does encourage people to catch up on a long series, and to keep reading it, if they can get several at once. I’ve read several of Lindsay Buroker’s series in this manner, and I think I’d have done the same with M T McGuire’s K’Barthan series too.
Like the first box set, I’m planning to do it on Smashwords (and therefore Nook, iPad and Kobo) and available for Kindle, without publishing it on Amazon. I suspect there will be a single volume for Amazon in the end, although I see they currently advertise ‘buy 8’ for the aggregate individual prices.
Dylan and Dougall’s Adventures
With the closure of the appeal for the Ulva Buyout very soon, I’m thinking about the irrepressible pair.
They have three adventures suitable for slightly younger readers (Father Christmas appears in one), and the idea was to make the reading level easier too.
After Princelings of the North they have done a lot of growing up, and Dylan has new responsibilities. I don’t see more young reader adventures featuring them, unfortunately, so if I want any more, they’ll have to be back-story.
Maybe I’ll just put the three together as a collection.
