Men’s Room is now live (and free) at the Apple bookstore.
For some reason, they haven’t updated the metadata, so it’s still titled “Men,” with the old description, but I downloaded it today on my (wife’s) iPad and can confirm it’s the new version. It’s free, so have at it.
I really like what I was able to do with this story in the revision. It’s a really worthwhile short that deepens the whole Carnal mythology that’s slowly coming together. I’m so pleased it made it into the Apple bookstore. I thought for sure it would get yanked by the super sensitive Apple censors. Meanwhile, Summer Shorts 2 actually made it past the censors and is back in the store. It must have been some sort of technical difficulty, because it took a few months, after its KDP run ended.
In other news, today was our best day ever (page views) on the blog. I attribute our new found popularity to Men’s Room, and the promotional links to the blog that I embedded at the end of the book. I started embedding links with Dirty Business and it’s been working out pretty well to drive customers to the blog. I think it’s safe to assume that people like the work, if they’re willing to come to the blog after finishing a read. It’s an encouraging sign.
By the way, Men’s Room is also available (free) at Smashwords, if you don’t have an iOS device. I’m probably going to let it run free for a few more weeks, just to get it out there. I’ll keep updating here, as I am able to confirm the new version’s availability at the rest of the venues. It’s still .99 cents (USD) at the US Amazon, until I can get a price match. I’m sure that will happen soon as Barnes & Noble get the latest version and update the price.
