A Stage For Traitors is out, baby! - Helsworth - 24.01.2013 19:02

It's out, dudes! https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/278377
Now I'm waiting for the SW staff to review the book so they can ship it to the other retailers. I'm pleased to say that the Meatgrinder worked like a charm. The conversion of the doc file into all the others worked from the get go!

Heh, sorry for not answering btw, I am hiding away from some ppl on Skype and so I hesitated, and then forgot.

Good for you though, because I think I can spare the 5$ to download it to my kindle! Big Grin

no time to read anything non-work related atm but congratulations! How does it feel to be published? Eggs and dark bread for breakfast tomorrow to clear the head? Zwinker2

Btw, I skipped through the description and was wondering:

is that right or is this a typo? Pfeif

It's babe as in newborn babes, not in the Johnny Bravo meaning ^^. How does it feel? Somewhat unburdened, but not totally. I hope this night I won't dream anymore of annoying insects, which I cannot stomp, or get rid of. I always dream bugs when I have many problems clawing at my subconscious.

Isn't it 'babies'?
I'm not entirely sure but I do believe that this is what was embedded into my brain structure as part of the english language package during the (quite painfull) introduction program I had to go through.

@ Bugs
Oh, that's an easy problem to get rid off (yes, it's unhelpfull advice time again); Simply start accepting bugs as coexisting creatures who to kill one has no moral right. That way you oppose the urge of killing them and will not be bugged by not being able to bug the bugs.
Alternatively you can replace one fear with another. I can make a couple of suggestions if you are interested Smile

It's somewhat archaic.

Well done!

I've uploaded a properly edited and revised (and god-willing, final) version of the book.
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/278377
I opted to delay the previous version from getting into the major retail stores. But now, I've opted in, and am currently waiting to hit those aforementioned stores.
A Stage For Traitors is now priced at $3.99.

PS: If anyone wants to leave a review, after reading the book. You can post at goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17287815-a-stage-for-traitors
RisingPhoenix was ever so graceful to leave his own ^^

A Stage For Traitors has appeared on Kobo and BarnesandNoble:


http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-stage-for-traitors-serban-vc-enache/1114675516?ean=2940044324619

NOTE: The Kobo store is dealing with a "bug", for almost 2 years now, from what talks I saw on the internet. Kobo displays the correct price in the list for the books, but then when you click on the respective book, it shows a different (higher) price. Unfortunately, this happens to my book as well, at checkout it's priced at 4.95, when the base price is 3.99. So better to get it via B&N or Smashwords for now.

I'm still waiting to get into the diesel and sony ebook stores, and into Apple.
Later this day I'll upload on youtube a clip or two, where I'll be doing a small presentation and I'll be reading a sample chapter. ^^
PS: If you download the 50% sample at Smashwords and if you liked it and want to finish the story, but you are unable to purchase it; let me know via pm, mail, or twitter, and I'll send it to you in whatever format you want (mobi, epub, pdf, etc).
