The Disappearence of Flynn Monroe


It came to my attention early this morning, that I spaced addressing the disappearance of Flynn Monroe (that’s not the title of the next book).
 
Fact of the matter is: I meant to mention it, and then completely forgot.

(Yay, shoddy memory! Thanks, Idiopathic Temporal Lobe Epilepsy*!)

So, here’s the situation:

A short time ago, I pulled the Flynn series from all sales outlets. I did so in response to some quality concerns and have been working to correct those problems.

I plan to re release the series in the first quarter of 2018 (barring unforeseen circumstances.)

What this means for readers:

As all of the books in the series are able to stand alone, if you’ve already read books within the series, you won’t need to do a thing to read books 6+. Please accept my apologies for those errors you caught and know that I will do better in the future.

If you’ve only read some of the previously released versions, you won’t need to reread the corrected versions to continue on when they are released.

There are a few used print copies available on Amazon. I don’t suggest buying these. Aside from the fact they are not the corrected version, they are overwhelmingly overpriced.

Please accept my apologies.
I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks,
Amy

IWSG: September 17

 
Have you ever surprised yourself with your writing?

I’m not sure if it counts, but I surprise myself with what I forget I’ve written.

Also with early quality and breadth of work.

Back in the year of 1 million words, I finished approximately twelve first drafts (and had a smattering of other incomplete stories). I’m still cleaning up those books and working through what is actually worth keeping.

As I go through those books, it is startling to see how poorly some of them were done--you live and you learn--especially when compared to something written almost at the same time that is actually up to par with my writing 4 years later….

August Numbers

August was my third least productive month…. And I think we can blame that on actually being focused.

Words:69,214-words in 21 days
(Avg 3,296-words)
5 Projects + Admin
 

Saying I worked on five projects almost feels like a lie… like I should go back and edit the spreadsheet to show only the two that I worked on in excess and toss the others in with the admin.
