Author’s Notes: One of my reviewers gave me some great advice (Thanks, Stable Boy!), which should have been obvious from the beginning. That is, simply to describe what you are getting for your 99 cents. Renewal is the first part in a series. It’s also the shortest part, weighing in at 17,500 words, give or take. The rest of the story is told in the following parts. Most of those range from 20,000 – 28,000 words. I didn’t have a grand plan (or even a mini plan) until I was halfway through the series. Thanks to my lack of experience, it just came out that way. In any case, I just wanted to let you know that you are getting a novella’s worth of reading in a series that tells a lengthy novel’s worth of story. I’m thankful that many have found the tale worthwhile, and I hope that you will too.
In the course of writing this series, I’ve learned enough to write the continuing story, beyond the series, in full novel-length releases. With a bit of experience under my belt, I believe that novel releases work a bit better for everyone. I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
