Today I have a few announcements related to Not Quite Normal, the short story anthology that I’ve been trying to big up for the last few weeks.
The first is that the fourth preview story, entitled The Well of Wisdom, is available to download now, in all manner of eBook formats (like .epub for iOS/many things and .mobi for Kindle, as well as in .pdf and a simple HTML version). It’s a bit of a change of pace, it being more like a fairy-tale and pretty close to being high fantasy. And it is, as with all of the NQN previews to date, completely and utterly free. Please check it out and pass the good word onto as many friends/relatives/crazy people on the bus as possible.
The second announcement is that there will be just one more Not Quite Normal preview story. It will be out sometime next week, probably Wednesday. I have a choice of two, and haven’t quite decided which one I want to pass out first. But, basically, the important part of this notice is that there will be just one more.
The fact that there will be only one more should tell you something. That the release date of Not Quite Normal is approaching as rapidly as the stampede that killed Mufasa. And you’d be quite right in that assumption. Not Quite Normal will be released, fully, very soon indeed. On 29/2/12, to be precise. The most unusual, strange and, indeed, not quite normal day of the year, being that it doesn’t exist 75% of the time. As I promised, there will be a free version and a premium one. I don’t want to announce the price of the premium anthology yet, but, again, I want to stress that it will not cost much at all.
Please help me to get the word out. The response I’ve had so far has been fantastic. But I’d love it to be even more fantasticer, and the only way that’s going to happen is with your help.
Anyway, that’s all I have to say right now. Thanks, as ever, for reading.
