After listening to people respond to my last blog post, I decided to go ahead and start posting this story. I appreciate all of the kind words and support I got. I do understand books being premium is frustrating to many, and I apologize again, but I started writing here and wanted to be able to keep giving back by keeping stories here (And having books premium gives a reason for people to have premium memberships, which supports SOL)
I removed my last blog post. I've received a lot of emails (both hear and to my email) with people upset ever since I put my books on premium, most telling me I was doing a bait and switch and trying to make money off of them. ANd many with not very kind things to add to that. I'm sure most users don't know that authors make nothing off of premium (that goes to the site).
I put it there, because piracy became a big enough concern that I had to do something about it (My books multiple times ended up on amazon, for sale by someone else other than me, competing with my own listings there).
I understand the books being on premium upsets and inconveniences some people, and some aren't able to get premium at the moment, and I sympathize. But I also had to protect all the work I've been doing.
Considering the kinds of things people no longer able to get my books without being a member of this site or buying them elsewhere feel is appropriate to say to me, I'm going to stop adding any new books and will think on if it's worth keeping my writing here at all (I will finish posting the two currently being posted in their entirety, and I will leave them for at least a few weeks after they finish to give people time to read them, if I decide to pull my books)
A new Taylor story is on it's way, and will start posting on Dec. 31st. As with my other stories, this will be premium only. To get information on it, to see the cover and for those who want to get the full book early, you can find that on my website tstarnes.com
A little delay, but the first chapter of the Fires of Vulcan is starting to post up today (It's cued up, so whenever it gets approved).
The Depths of Neptune has about 8 chapters left to post, and the next book in the series, The Fires of Vulcan is already done (it comes out Sept 30th in the normal places and information can be found on my author page tstarnes.com) and will continue on the same posting schedule without a break. As with Elegy, this book will post as premium, although I still don't know if this will be permanent of just a test.
