What's Next: 'Lords of Kobol'

If you've been following along on my Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr accounts, you've seen that I've been re-reading all of my Lords of Kobol books.  And taking notes.

First off, I aim to do some slight editing.  "Slight," meaning "spelling, grammar, etc., corrections."  Yes, even though I read these things a dozen times before they were published, I still missed some punctuation and such.

Secondly, I plan to insert color versions of the maps.  I used black-and-white versions because I thought it would be most fair for people who had plain Kindles.  I see from my download stats that most people are downloading it for laptop reading or iPhone/iPad reading, so that concern is nigh moot.  (Also, on a graphical note, Smashwords wants me to increase the size of the covers, so they will have to be redone.  Sigh.)

Thirdly, I may do some pruning.  I found some chapters of Book One to be a little redundant so I may shift some things around and delete a chapter or two.  I'm still reading Book Three, and it's the longest one, yet I don't recall much that could be considered chaff.

So ... what else am I planning?

You may recall that I said some time ago that I would delve back into the BSG-verse after I finished my foray into erotica.  I said I would write Lords of Kobol - Book Zero.

Well, I might not write Book Zero.

Maybe Book Five.

Same thing?  Sure.  But why the odd numbering scheme?

My greatest concern is that a newbie would see all the books and download Book Zero first, thinking it should be read in that order.  Sure, I could include a forward to warn against such foolhardy actions, but it may do no good.

Eh.  I don't know.  Maybe I'll stick with Zero.  Let me know what you think.  Should I just stick to Book Zero and hope the n00bs figure it out before they get spoiled?
