I iterate because I can


One of the benefits of digital publishing is we can update and correct manuscripts easily.

I’m sure some sticks in the mud would say once you release your work into the world you should have to live with the warts unless you want to be struck down by lightning.

I take a more philosophical approach. We have the tools and technology, so blow it out your arse if you’re a luddite.

I have six novels out there, and I’ve tweaked them all. A lot. I’ve upgraded covers, I’ve eliminated typos when I’ve become aware of them (no matter how good the editor is, the pesky little buggers still get into print), I’ve done some small rewrites to improve clarity and in two cases I’ve added short final chapters when enough reviewers thought I had left loose ends.

One of those books was the first of my funny mystery Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger books, Who Knew Tasmanian Tigers Eat Apples!, which now has a new final chapter called Grate Expectations.

By the way, the book is FREE at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple and Kobo. Get it here: books2read.com/u/4DAkyr

I’m releasing Who Knew Tasmanian Tigers Eat Apples! #1 in a collection with Lie of the Tiger #2 and Blokes on a Plane #3 soon.

The bundle is called it Different Stripes. The ebooks are on pre-order for May 28 release at books2read.com/u/49Pglw and the print book is already available at Amazon.

I went through each book with a fine toothcomb making sure the facts and dates etc align.

If something got under my guard, feel free to let me know.

The fact is the books will never be perfect but I’m always very happy to do running repairs.
