NEW RELEASE! Persephone: Children of Khaos Series

Children of Khaos Series
by Stephannie Beman

In a world where Gods rule and Daemons are feared, Hades, the most notorious Phlegethon daemon-god to roam the ancient world, is released from his prison in Tartarus by the Olympian Zeus to aid in the war against the Titans.

Betrayed by the Gods he once served, battle-weary Hades promised to never allow another god power over him, but he didn’t plan on the intervention of the Fates intertwining his future with the daughter of Demeter. Persephone has become the siren calling him, promising the completion of heart and soul, but only a fool accepts the gifts of a siren, or fights against the will of the Fates.

  1. I know folks say to always put your best foot forward and stress the important of thoroughly editing work before publishing it. However, I think this situation is unique. My Lord Hades has already been out 7 (?) months. This means there are copies in circulation regardless of if you have it currently available or not.

    That you took it down in the first place, shows a lot of integrity and pride. in your work. On the other hand, it also deprives readers who have heard great things about your work and want a copy for themselves.

    My personal thoughts are to upload the cleaner version and work diligently on a final proof. I’m not saying that’s the right choice, but that is what I would do. The reason I say this is because if the typical response I received were good despite the flub, then a cleaner version would be an improvement without missing opportunities to gain readership through word of mouth. Keep in mind, this is coming from someone who’s never published a full length novel.

    My understanding is My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking was not a clean version. She admits to it being full of errors. She’s corrected it since (so I understand). I’m under the impression she didn’t take her novel off the market while it was going through editing. Maybe send her a line and see if she has any advice.

    Once you get everything situated, you might also consider a re-release party.


  2. How long will it take for you to proofread it over? If it’s going to be two weeks or less, then I’d say wait. Any longer than that and I’d worry about losing a good number of potential sales. The reason I say potential is because one person might buy it in this time period who loves it and tells a couple of friends who also love it and spread the word. Something else to consider is that while the changes are immediate on Smashwords, it takes awhile to reflect on their distribution channels, which is why I’d opt for the final version if I could get it out in a timely manner. If we’re talking a month or so, I’d definitely upload the clean version now.

    Oh, you know with Chirstmas coming, you probably want something out there sooner rather than later. Would you like me to help and do another proof through it?


    • I’m not sure how long the edits will take, which is why I was debating whether or not to remove it or reload that current edited copy. The biggest problem I have right now is possibly the wrong words, formatting that was lost, or sentences that don’t flow right.


  3. Glad you got it back! If it’s not going to take more than a couple of days I’d say wait, but otherwise the longer you wait, the longer the book is down.

    I learned my mistakes on multiple documents. I now have a folder inside the folders that says “Final versions” and then inside it is a folder for paper back, kindle, and smashwords and I put the word doc, the cover image and/or the PDF for that format in that folder and that’s it, trying to save the mess I had with Shades f Gray where3 I had to open a bunch of documents each time and read through stuff to find the right one.
