Read Chapter One, Two, and Three of THE DIAMOND BEARERS' DESTINY

** Updated August 11, 2013 **  
Is this how you looked when you finished reading  
The Diamond of Freedom, book three of 
The Unaltered Series?

Almost daily I receive emails (some frantic) from fans of the series begging to know when the last book will be released. Some simply don't know what to do with their time while they wait. To them, I'd say get out and enjoy the wonderful outdoors while I sit on my tush -- indoors -- writing the book for you!  =)

To help with the growing excitement, I'm releasing a
of the first three chapters of The Diamond Bearers' Destiny.

New Revised Edition of A Diamond in my Pocket

In preparation for the release of book four of The Unaltered Series, The Diamond Bearers' Destiny, I've gone over book one, A Diamond in my Pocket, and made a few changes.

I didn't change the basic plot line of the book, so don't panic. I made subtle changes throughout the book, but the main focus of revision was on the first chapter. The focus is now more on Calli's running performance at the track meet, how her body felt and the reactions of everyone around her. Mrs. Winter introduces herself immediately following Calli's run of the 100-m.

I also reorganized the content in the first chapter concerning Calli's lip reading ability, introduction to her friend Suz, and Calli's physical description to improve the flow of the book. I also eliminated content that was redundant, confusing, and contrary to the overall plot of the series.

The new changes are available online at the major outlets.

Book one was written in 2009 and has gone through many changes prior to release in 2011, however, the first chapter never really changed much. Feedback from valued commenters told me that the beginning of the book needed some work to make it more interesting and gripping. My goal with this change to book one is not to upset my current fans, but to retain a higher percentage of readers from book one to two.

Another goal I'm striving to reach is bringing my books to print. I'm investigating different print on demand services and their requirements with the hopes of being able to serve all my readers in the next few months. I am also planning on releasing an Mp3 audio of the series down the road.
