the quiet people have arrived

I was going to write a blog post yesterday, but then more and more things came up that I wanted to write about. So, I’m going to whittle it down to the essential thing. More is coming soon.

The original reason for the midweek post was that the final mystery in the current series, “The Mystery of the Quiet People,” is posted.

This concludes the beta reading and re-editing process on the Jan Sleet mystery stories.

The process began on January 1st, 2012 and has produced some excellent results. Not that the stories are necessarily excellent, but the process has made all of them stronger than they were.

Two stories were dropped (not even because they were bad, but because they didn’t help the overall story), two stories got combined, and two new diagrams were created (I always like it when mystery stories have floor plans and maps). At some point there will be an e-book, but very soon there will be a unified HTML file of the whole book, designed for printing and e-readers.

So, thanks again to all the beta readers (even the ones who only got partway through or never did anything at all).

And for everybody else, I hope you like the stories.
