Well, you know, as I go on, I hopefully will keep getting better. If you don't look back at your life, every five to ten years and cringe at what you used to do, then something is a little off...

Sure, maybe it means that you're just perfect...

But with my early works, I tend to kind of cringe pretty hard for that. :)

*I've been thinking pretty hard about what's coming over the next months! I'm thinking of using the Phillip S. Power name for the next three books to come (After the new Gwen Farris, of course. I've been focusing on editing for that one right now. I don't think it's horrible...) which will be kind of different in some ways.

1. The main character won't have big relationship issues. Though I think that there will be one developing during the story, the lack of one won't be a large issue.

2. The main character will be unique and interesting, as well as hard looking, but won't have powers of any sort.

3. There might be aliens...

:)

Now I need to write them, to see how things come out.

After the editing on Gwen, of course!

I haven't really noticed a big difference between earlier works and later ones, but I tend to be pretty blind to that in the main. That said, since I've only been reading them for a couple months, I'd have missed any revisions on them. Personally, I'd vote for any new books in the same Genre (sci-fi/fantasy?) to be under the same name, though having a similar but recognizable one shouldn't be too bad. I rely heavily on Amazon's "Recommended For You" page, as well as as "More by <Author>" and "Customers who bought this book also bought" sections in Kindle, so I don't think the danger of losing track of some of your works is all that of an issue.

As far as books in different Genre's under totally different pen names go, I haven't read any of those yet, so don't really know yet if I'd want to read a definitive collection of your work or not. As long as you keep your site more or less up-to-date, and have a blurb in the back of your books pointing to it (that's been inconsistent), I think it will work out fine.

Do people like the blurb at the back of the book? I stopped doing that, because it got too large. But if it's actually helpful, I can start again. It isn't hard or anything.

*Also, I'm back to work. Writing both new things and the next Avery Rome book. At the same time!

Yes, we like and need the blurb. We need to know what's coming next, for the series that we just read, and for the next book you plan to release. If you feel its getting to large, put a link in to take us to a list of all your work and/or any commentary you may have. It doesn't have to be very specific, just enough to let a reader know where they can get more info if they want it. Like the forum or wikilinks or your blog or whatever. All that info is available, so you don't have to write a second novel at the end of the book like some authors do. And yay, more books to look forward to!

If nothing else, the burb is pages you get paid for via KU. And compared to some of the things authors keep stuffing their page count with, it includes useful information, so don't feel guilty about the couple of cent more you can make that way.

I had to go and look back at several books to find out why it would be getting longer, cause that wasn't what I had in mind. I just mean something like this (happens to be from YA:7). Perhaps if you revise books after a series is complete you can include that series listing, but with 80+ books and counting, I agree the complete listing is quite a lot. That's really better suited for a dynamic resource like the website anyway.

Wait! There's more! You can find out all about it by going to pspowerbooks.com

There you can learn about what books you've missed, what's in store and a lot more. Check it out today!

Nothing is more annoying than a book ending at ninety percent or less.

I'd say go for it, but keep it to two or three pages max. Perhaps list series instead if books, with a link to a webpage about those series with the books listed and described on the website.

Both of best worlds, easy access to the info for those that want it, without bloating the e-book itself.
