Diligent reader Daniel_Day observed that the first part of the Seven Cows saga is no longer in the Archives. Daniel, there is nothing wrong with your eyesight.
Seven Cows is in the process of coming out as a book.
The editor "suggested" that the free version of Seven Cows be pulled back into draft status while the publishing company recovers the cost of producing the book.
To provide a frame of reference, a professional, free-lance editor charges about $3 a page and the book is approximately 500 pages long. Then there is the cost of the graphics.
Since the publishing company has at least $2000 of labor into getting the book published, I figure I owe them something in return. If the editor "suggests" that I disappear Seven Cows for a period of time then I will comply.
The other issue is that Amazon does internet searches to ensure that the author is not infringing on other's copyrights. Of course they found the on-line version when they did the search and the book's production and distribution was stalled while that was sorted out. My editor said the cleanest way to eliminate the problem was to pull the on-line version.
I was going to announce the book after some minor glitches in the formatting were ironed out. Like every other business, Amazon is operating with missing players and players playing out-of-position. Things happen more slowly and issues are not always solved in the first go around.
So, the most precise answer is that the slightly glitchy Seven Cows saga can be found HERE
If you can wait a week-or-two before buying then the formatting issues will be resolved (fingers crossed).
Kindle version is $5. Paper version is $19 because of the number of pages.
I handled a proof copy. I found it an enjoyable book to open up anywhere and starting to read. That is a happy accident that resulted from the installment origins of the story.
Consequently, it is a great book to have in the bathroom for those four minute interludes of privacy when you have time to read. Another advantage of this book is that it provides approximately 250 sheets of toilet paper in a pinch.
The second book in the Seven Cows saga is The Shrewd King.
The Shrewd King starts here and is still on the free side.
The first piece of fiction that I put on the internet was set in the Calexit universe.
The start of that story is in Jim Curtis's very fine anthology of Calexit stories
The rest of the story is available on the free side Calexit continued
The editor suggested that if enough copies of Seven Cows are sold that it would justify publishing The Shrewd King. If that happens, it too will disappear from the free side.
While it is a bummer to lose access to free stuff, the convenience of having all the installments in one place is worth something. Another benefit is that all the material evaporates if I am de-platformed. A published book is less volatile.
