Book 2 Updated

Just a quick heads up. I just pushed fresh copy of The Great Convergence to both Amazon and Smashwords. If you haven’t read that book yet, or plan to read it again, you can download a new copy immediately if you bought it from Smashwords. If you bought it from Amazon, the new copy will be up in a day or two. If you got it from Barnes and Noble or one of the other retailers, it will probably be few weeks.

I read through and got rid of a few glaring typos, including the infamous “reign/rein” problem that a number of people have pointed out. There are also a few awkwardly worded sentences that have been reworked, and one or two lines added to clarify the literary equivalent of stage direction. I’m not saying I caught all of my mistakes, I’m just saying there are fewer now than before. It is probably a side effect of a Computer Engineering and Information Technology background that I’ve been treating these books like programs, complete with patches and updates every few months.

After a short break to regain some sanity, I’ll try reading through book 3 and giving it a similar update, along with continuing the Sci Fi followup.

UPDATE: June 30th, 2010 7:35 PM

It looks like the updated Amazon version is live. You can replace your current version if you like.

  1. Thanks for the update – this should be the first time I’ve gotten an update on a Kindle ebook. Be good to see how the process works in reality.

  2. Just rec’d the notification from Amazon… Amazon and I have very different definitions of the word, ‘soon’. Sounds more like Valve time.

    🙂
