I just compiled all three books of the Tormay Trilogy into one document and published it on Amazon. It’s rather lengthy. About 1,500 pages or so. Anyway, one of the main reasons I’ve done that is that, over the last year, I’ve gotten some peculiar reviews from people complaining that Book 1 is not a stand-alone story and that they wouldn’t have spent 99 cents (or gotten it for free – as it is often available for free on Amazon and perpetually available for free on Itunes, Sony, Kobo and Smashwords) if they had known that. Well, no, I’ve never claimed Book 1 was a stand-alone story and I very carefully explain that on the buy-page on Amazon, as well as in the first few pages of the book (which are available for free as a sample, or via Amazon’s Look Inside feature).
Anyway. I’m getting the odd sensation that free is not necessarily a good thing. My mother used to offer guitar lessons for free (mainly due to the fact that she is not fond of money). However, she quickly found out that the free students would not take their lessons seriously and, therefore, would not practice. This was a waste of her time and their time. When she began charging money, the students began taking their lessons seriously…
But I digress.
So, in order to satisfy people who want single, stand-alone stories, the entire thing is now available as a single, stand-alone story called A Storm in Tormay: The Complete Tormay Trilogy. It certainly won’t be available ever for free. That’s ten years of my life right there, compressed into 1,500 pages.
