10 Long Years since my first ebook
I’ll bet many of you had no idea there were ebooks before the Kindle or Nook. (E-texts have been around as long as computers. But in the late 90s, the first ebook revolution happened. I always laugh when the young whippersnappers who think ebooks were invented with the Kindle call themselves the ebook revolution.)
But the truth is, eleven years ago I published my first hardcover. (Which shall forever remain an embarrassment
to me as much as it was a milestone.)
A year later, I published my first ebook. It was simply titled “Journey to Nyorfias, Book 1″ and I was using my pen name, Terran Moffat.
Recently, JTN1 (its shorthand designation) was retitled CONVERGENCE, Journey to Nyorfias Book 1, and I republished it under my name. Last week I created a special edition. I was feeling rather wicked, so I borrowed the look and feel of a popular thriller novel and gave Convergence a fun title: The Girl With Another Girl In Her Head. Inside that wrapper I added some maps from the original ebook (it was a PDF and had illustrations), a deleted scene (short story length, never published),a Glossary, and several illustrated-by-me chapters of a prequel story that appeared here on this blog for a very short time.
If any of you who read this blog made a verified purchase (or got a verified giveaway) of an ebook version of JTN1, send me an email terzap (at) gmail (dot) com. I’ll email you a Kindle or EPUB of the special edition.
