Truth & Consequences releases in 3 days.
Unfortunately the current uploaded version on Amazon is still in DRAFT FORM.
And it's in publishing.
Which means I can't fix it until it's released.
Which also means that if you pre-ordered the book, the version that will be uploaded to your kindle on October 10 at 12am is a DRAFT and NOT the completed version as intended.
I hate that because the portion uploaded is about 25K words that literally take place in the center of the book and will make no sense (or might even piss you off) when you read them.
However, all hope is not lost as a CORRECTED version will be uploaded on the DAY of RELEASE.
So, if you pre-ordered the book OR download the book on the day of release and receive the DRAFT version (and trust me, you'll know it's a draft; IIRC, the chapters are not even labeled in that version), you will be notified ASAP of the corrected version and allowed to download it *again* to your kindle. The corrected file will state: OFFICIAL COPY on the first page.
Also, if you need a new version but are not contacted by Amazon regarding the updates, please don't state the information in a review on the book's page. I ask this because Amazon publishers will not see that you received the wrong copy and neither will I. You'll need to contact them via email to let them know that the version you received was incorrect and are in need of the new one.
The bottom line regarding all of this is that mistakes were made on my end, my timing with this book was absolutely awful and completely off and this is the result. I hate even having to admit that, but there it is.
T&C was hard to write. And I mean hard. I convinced myself that I had more time to work out the personal issues I was having with this book, even as time continued ticking away. Apparently, 5 months was not enough. Books 1, 2, & 3 were released between January and May of this year. It took me a month at the most to finish each of them. It was too late before I realized that Truth was in a class all by itself.
I've written a lot of books over the years, not all of them published. And I can honestly say that Truth & Consequences was a BEAST. Not just in size (the corrected version is longer than Live & Learn, so prepare yourself) but also in depth. It's also quite possibly my personal favorite in comparison to the other books in the series as well as others I have written before.
The draft version that's been uploaded is *I think* full of repeats. You can read it but again, it'll make no sense until you read the beginning first.
Once I'm notified of the corrections being uploaded, I will post that info AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
As a result of the snafu's, Book 5 may or may not be available for Pre-Order. I'm still debating on that. If it is, it will be made available via Smashwords first.
With all of that said, please accept my sincerest apologies. I know that this is a pain in the a** to keep reading from me (especially being the 4th book in, I just have to hang my head), but I hope, hope, hope that once you receive the final copy of Truth that you love it just as much as I did and sit back saying, yep, I get it. I get it. LOL.
Thank you again for the pre-orders, for being patient, and for continuing to be my readers! I have such respect for all of you. So much so that I've left a personal note at the beginning of the book that you will receive with the updated copy as well.
As always, happy reading and have a happy Wednesday.
