Easter Egg for Ability

Greetings!  I hope you're enjoying your summer, as well as my most recent book, Fidelity.

I recently wrote an Easter Egg for Ability.  I felt bad putting it out without an Easter egg, but I knew I'd probably get to it someday.  Fidelity intervened, and then I found the time and inclination to write Ability's Easter egg, so voilà, it's now available!  My editor really loved it, too, which is always a good clue!

I uploaded it to KDP and asked the Amazon team to put out a notification to previous purchasers that they could re-download Ability for the Easter egg.  However, I don't know if they'll do that.  I've requested they notify previous purchasers to do that before but those weren't 'substantive' changes.  This time I'm pretty sure they'll do it, given that it's 25,018 words!!

For those of you who purchased your book through Smashwords, iTunes, Kobo, or anywhere else, I'm sorry I don't have the ability to notify you to re-download the book.  I'm quite willing to send you a copy if you email me and tell me which file format you need.  
Thanks to my loyal readers!  Unfortunately, Civility is going to be a bear to write; I anticipate it taking at least two years.  Princess Elizabeth, who's 57 years old (two years after Ability), is going to be sent on a bit of an adventure!  Here's a VERY tentative cover for Civility.  I do anticipate this being the FINAL book of the To Be Sinclair series.  I have other things I want to write, some in the Sinclair universe, and some... not quite!


UPDATE:  According to KDP:

"Since book updates can make customers lose their highlights, bookmarks, and notes, we only send updates to fix serious issues like unreadable text or cut-off images.

If the only new change is the addition of new content, that wouldn't fall into a serious quality fix.

However, your readers will have the option to update their books! If they go into the "Manage Content and Devices" they'll see that a new update is available for your book. At that point they can choose to update their copy with the new material!

For more details on sending updated content to customers, please see our Help page:

So, there you go.  Since I've updated all my books recently, try updating them all again and see if that works, too!  And let me know if it does!!

Thank you so much!
