Apologies for the misleading title – I haven’t killed off Innerscape. The post mortem is actually about the lessons I learned while publishing Innerscape last year. You thought it all went smoothly, didn’t you? -sound of maniacal laughter-

Just a quickie to say I’m going to raise the price for Innerscape, Episodes 2 – 5 this evening [Australian time].
Once the change hits – usually within 24 hours – the new pricing will be as follows:
Episode 1 – remains at 99 cents
Episode 2 – $1.99
Episode 3 – $1.99
Episode 4 – $1.99
Episode 5 – $1.99
If you started reading Innerscape but missed out on an episode or two during the Christmas madness, please nip in and grab whatever you’re missing while it’s still at 99 cents:
I will be compiling an Omnibus edition at some point during 2017, but I’m ready for a change so it won’t be any time soon.
Oh, and, if you were wondering about the relevance of the pic…there ain’t none; it just makes me happy. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this journey with me. I hope your New Year is full of joy and hope.
Now everyone knows why I don’t do poetry. But my prose ain’t that bad, and it so happens that the very last episode of Innerscape is now available for free download from Amazon. This is where you can get it:
And in the spirit of giving…or is it bribery?…the very last competition is now also up and running. As always, at the end of the competition, all the correct entries will have a chance to win a $20 gift voucher from Amazon.
Entering the competition is dead easy. Start by reading the ‘Look Inside’ below [just the first few pages]. There you will find the answer to the multiple choice question for this episode:
Drum roll…and the multiple choice question is:
Where is David and Jane’s wedding to take place?
- New York?
Once you know the answer, write it [or just the number of the correct answer] in comments and that’s it. Just one entry per person though. 🙂
The free download and the competition will both end on December 18, 2016. After that, the price for Episode 5 reverts to 0.99 cents till the end of the week. And after that, every episode, except for no. 1, will rise to $1.99. Episode 1 will stay at 0.99 forever, or until I can make it permafree.
So please, take advantage of the free dowload and the competition while you can.
I’d better make this quick. Episode 4 is now available for free download from December 6, 2016 to December 10, 2016. To get your free copy, please follow the link to Amazon below:
The Innerscape competition is ready to go as well. Simply read the ‘Look Inside’ below [use your browser’s back button to return to this post] and answer a simple, multiple choice question in comments, and hey presto, you’ll be in with a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift voucher. 🙂
The question for Episode 4 is – what did Alex Tang die of?
- a heart attack?
- the common cold?
If you know the answer, please write it in comments [only one per person please] at the end of this post. When the competition finishes, I’ll write each correct entry onto a piece of paper which will then be folded and placed into a vessel of some kind, maybe a hat. Finally, the Offspring will come along to select the winning entry. Easy.
The winner of the competition will be announced on this blog, plus I’ll email or contact the winner directly. Then it’s just a case of deciding what to treat yourself to…erm, with.
If you haven’t entered the competition yet, please do because I get as much fun out of it as the winner does. 🙂
And now for a music track that I didn’t listen to while writing Innerscape. It’s a cinematic from Advent Children, an animation by Square Enix. This scene depicts the final fight between Cloud and Sephiroth, iconic characters from Final Fantasy 7. Even if you don’t like fighting, please watch the incredible cinematography and animation. 🙂
Cue drum roll!
Sherry Fundin of Fundinmental.com is the latest winner in the Innerscape launch competition.
Congratulations, Sherry, you have won a $20 Amazon gift voucher, and I’ll be sending it your way as soon as this post is done. Thank you for entering my little competition. It’s been fun meeting you. 🙂
And thank you to everyone else who entered the competition as well. Now that you know how easy the competition is, I hope you’ll all join in the next one.
Speaking of, there are two more Episodes to go and two more competitions, with the next one due to start [fingers crossed] on Monday, December 5, 2016. Due to timezone differences, the competition should begin at around 8:00pm for my Australian friends.
Until then, it’s goodnight from the Antipodes,
At last! The price on Innerscape, Episode 3 has finally dropped to $0.00. It will stay free for the next 5 days [November 29, 2016 to December 3, 2016], so please grab your copy while you can. I know I shouldn’t say this but…Episode 3 will shock you. And that’s all I’m saying. 😀

And now that the official business is taken care of…LOOK!
-blush- Sorry, I have never had one of my novels in the ‘Also Viewed’ list before. You guys must be doing something right. Thank you. 😀
Couldn’t resist showing you a screenshot of an email I received from Amazon today :
I’m thrilled that Amazon is sending these emails out but…you’d think the algorithm would be smart enough to know I’m not likely to buy something I published myself?
One of the other recommendations was a little odd as well because it’s for a novel I’ve already bought [from Amazon] and read. Still pretty chuffed though.:)
Okay, I admit my hand written notes will never qualify me for Tattslotto, but the Offspring did a great job of selecting the winner and we both squealed in delight when we read who it was. EllaDee is only the second online friend we’ve both met in real life, and our lunch together was way too short. It truly is wonderful to meet people you’ve only spoken to online. 😀
So…EllaDee of https://elladeewords.wordpress.com/, you are the lucky winner of the second Innerscape competition! A $20 Amazon gift voucher will be winging its way to you in about five minutes, or as soon as I publish this post. Congratulations and thank you so much for helping to promote Innerscape.
And thank you to all the other lovely people who entered the competition as well. There are three more episodes to go and three more competitions so please join in.
massive hugs to you all,
The 5 day free period for Episode 2 ends on November 25, 2016 in the US so Southern hemisphere type people still have a few hours to grab a free copy. And I would be so very happy if you entered the competition as well. There is no obligation whatsoever and you will have a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift voucher.

As with Episode 1, the competition will run for 5 days until Friday, November 25, 2016.

The winner of the $20 Amazon gift voucher will be announced in a post and on Twitter. I will also try to leave a message on your blog or website.
If you simply want to download the free copy of Episode 2, you can find the link here:
If you prefer to browse to the Amazon page, you can find Episode 2 by typing ‘kindle Innerscape’ in the Amazon search box. Just be careful as Episode 1 will be at the top of the list, not Episode 2.
And now a video of another track that inspired the writing of Innerscape:
This one is part of the soundtrack to ‘Colin Frake’, and I love it. 😀
