While back, feeling expansive and sure I could write anything, I sat down and did a straight mystery novel. Set it in Portland, protagonist being one Tyrone Candle, a gunsmith. It has a lot of shooting hardware, guys pumping iron in the gym, a romance, an old friend in trouble -- the usual.
The market was soft and I wasn't able to sell it, but as one does, I tucked it away and went on about my business, of which I had plenty at the time.
Ranging through old files, and I came across Curse the Darkness, and thought: Hey, this isn't such a bad book. Maybe I can make a pass and turn it into another handy-dandy e-novel, since it isn't doing me any good sitting here at my house.
A rule for writers: Never, ever toss anything you write. You never know when it will come in handy.
So I'm going to format the sucker for Smashwords, clean it up a bit, and see how it feels. Might ask for a reader or two to see how it plays once I get it done. At the moment, it's in a bunch of plain-vanilla text files that will have to be merged and made ready for the Smashwords converter, which will require getting rid of all kinds of invisible formatting commands, justifying and centering the text, changing fonts, etc. Probably take a few days.
Cover art is open for discussion, me having figured out there are a lot of folks out there who know more about such things than I, but it'll serve as a placeholder ...
