The complaints first – just to get them out of the way. I still can’t count on getting what I want from Scrivener in a .doc conversion. There are just too many details to get wrong when you compile a text, so I went back to my original method. Copy and paste to Neo Office, clean up formatting, and save as .doc. Then go to Kindle, forget that I have to change out the Smashwords refs and links for Amazon. When that’s done, the previewer decides not to show anything at all. Try to view in my desktop viewer, which crashes several times. Download new previewer, wait for update, and finally! All seems to be okay now.
So — The Darkest Prison is complete, 12,000 words of creepy goodness. I’d really love some feedback, good, bad, or indifferent, but honest, kick-ass critiques. This is so different from anything I’ve written that I can’t evaluate it. If you feel like pointing out typos or anything else that needs to be changed, let me know.
It’s free on Smashwords if you want to download it in a favorite format. Will be on Kindle when they get around to publishing it, but it will be $.99 there until it’s price matched with Smashwords.
