Absolute Liability is in its last major rewrite, and I’m pretty excited about it. I hope to have the book available sometime in June, but I’m not promising anything, except that I’ll do the best I can.
I’m going to try some new things with this book, the first in a six-book series of thrillers set in the South. I’m going to build a new fancy flash website for the Southern Fraud Series, and I’ll be releasing two short stories for free on this site, the new site, and at Smashwords. I also have a large promotion set up for mid-July, which I plan to do in conjunction with a few new techniques. I’ll also be playing with price more.
I don’t know how well any of this stuff will work, of course. Again, I’ll be a relatively unknown author because I’m going to be writing in a completely different genre and using a completely different style. And this is a much bigger market.
It should be interesting to see how Absolute Liability fares out there in the even wider book world. But I’m also excited about trying something new and keeping it fresh. And I’m reinvigorated about the opportunities self-publishing offers. I’m not trapped into one genre; I can try anything.
We’ll see how it goes!
