Facts about Expendable Few:
Expendable Few is currently 31 chapters +1 Epilogue. That's after cutting / substituting 9 chapters and taking 5 cracks at the epilogue.
Instead of writing a short novella, the Expendable Few has grown to the size of the average science fiction novel (about 85,000-100,000 words).
It'll be released on Smashwords first, and available for whatever people are willing to pay ($0.00 to $?.??)
A print version will be available within a month of the EBook's release.
30 days after the release on Smashwords, Expendable Few will appear on Amazon.com. Pricing will partially be dictated by Amazon. Within a few weeks of the book's appearance on Amazon it will pop up on Barnes and Noble, the iBookstore, Kobo and other retailers. It is important to mention that Smashwords will provide versions of the book for all readers, so no matter what you're using you can get the book on day one there.
Work on Broadcast 7 is starting back up as I work on the extra chapters in Expendable Few, no more material will be cut from EF, unless the editors require it.
I expect to have a release date for this book by Feb 14, hopefully MUCH earlier.
Our ebook formatting partner has been contacted, and they will be giving us a submission deadline today.
This book is experimental in every way, and unlike anything I've written in the genres of horror, fantasy, or science fiction, while drawing from all three genres.
It will read short - meaning that it is fast paced, and you'll be finished before you realize it.
All the central plotlines that begin in this book end in this book.
The book eventually connects to the Spinward Fringe series.
