Well, I certainly didn’t think I’d be making another news post so soon, but here we are. After receiving a few messages from readers on my Royal Road account, I have come to the realization that I’m not supposed to be hosting the entire book for free online according to my agreement with Amazon. Because I have the book enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, that’s the only place it’s allowed to be free in its entirety. That’s my bad, I definitely should have read my terms and conditions much more closely. 90% of the book has been removed from Royal Road, leaving the first three chapters as a teaser to potentially get people interested (I’m allowed to post up to 10% for free). I’m a bit bummed about the whole thing, but I’ve gotta follow the rules I agreed to.
To make up for this, I’ve decided to post my rough draft of Volume 2 on Royal Road as I edit it! One chapter will go up per week (Sundays at Noon EST) until the entire project is uploaded. I’ll probably be getting close to publishing at that point, at which time I’ll start uploaded the rough chapters of Volume 3, and the cycle will continue forever. If you follow these news updates and have been anxiously awaiting more Restart Again content, this is your chance to get it!
Sorry to any of my Royal Road fans who this has affected in a negative way. I really enjoyed being able to get the wider audience on the project, but my preexisting arrangement with Amazon takes precedent here. Plus, if I’m being honest, I think I get more eyes on the project through KU than I do through RR, so if I’m shooting for “the widest audience possible”, I think I’ve made the right decision. Regardless, thanks for sticking with me, stay tuned for more news, and as always, thanks for reading.
