Progress on Curdled Cuisine

So, Curdled Cuisine has been sent to three beta readers.  I took a couple of risks on a couple of scenes, and I’m hoping that the payout will be worth the cost on them, but I’m holding out judgment until I get all three critiques back.  There’s a chance that I’ll have to do some major rewriting on the project, but at the moment I’m hopeful that the scenes in question will play out well, and I’ll be able to do one last minor round of edits in November.  In the meantime, I’m working on a short story collection associated with the Corpse-Eater Saga, and I’m about to start work on book four, Delicious Detritus.

In related news, a friend and I are working on some promotional plans that are scheduled to coincide with the release of book 3.  The short version is that I’ll be making book 1 available for free for a while.  Ideally this will translate directly to people becoming fans and getting the second and third book, but, at the very least, I’m hoping to increase the number of book reviews on Amazon.  I don’t really get how Amazon works, but according to people who understand all of that better than I do, the more reviews a book gets, the more likely it is to show up as a suggested book to people who might otherwise never hear about it.

Anyhow, that’s what’s going on in my world.  I hope everyone out there in the world is doing well!
