When I heard that Loose Id had closed its doors and the books they published reverted to me, putting Forest of Glass and The Peacock Prince back out there seemed like a no-brainer. I was also curious about how the whole self-publishing deal worked, and thought re-releasing my Loose Id novels was a great chance to try it out. It's been equal parts fun and headache so far, and I like that the books are out there again.
I was intending to do the same with A Stranger in Skoria and and A Slave in Skoria, but something held me back. Maybe it's the fact that there are parts of the books that, in retrospect, I would like to change; not massive things, but little worldbuilding-related niggles.
(Just as an example, at the time I wrote the Skoria books, singular 'they' as a pronoun was less accepted, editorially. I initially wrote the Sylen characters, who are neither male nor female, as using they/them pronouns, but ended up changing it to the zie/hir pronoun set. In retrospect, I wish I could have stuck with using 'they'!)
Or maybe it's the fact that I have an, as-yet-unfinished third Skoria book (A Sovereign in Skoria) staring at me accusingly, and had vague thoughts that an omnibus edition might be nice.
Hmm. What do you think, readers? Re-release the Skoria books now, as they are? Give them a minor edit, then re-release? Or get more ambitious, finish Skoria #3, and maybe get them all out together?
