I did some minor rewriting. Mostly word choices; a couple of instances of "telling, not showing." There was only one chapter I removed but I immediately replaced it with something new. Something that actually previews Book Five. More on that in a second.
The revisions and additions, comparatively minor as they are, have been published at Smashwords. The new version will filter out to other retailers (iTunes, B&N, etc.) in the coming weeks. Click the banner to get it:
The chapter I removed and the chapter I added? Both are after the JUMP.
Here's the chapter I removed. At this point in the story, the war against the Draco is winding down and the gods are getting back to the business of helping the people. I wanted to show some of the strife between those who supported the war and those who didn't; those who support Zeus' experiment and those who don't ... The problem is, I followed this chapter up with two or three others that did the same thing (one that focuses on Apollo & Artemis, one on Athena and one on Zeus). This one with Demeter and Poseidon just wasn't needed.
And here's what I added in its place. Like I said earlier, it's a preview, of sorts, for Book Five. How? Well, part of Book Five focuses on how the Messengers guide humanity and why they don't just force us to make the choices that ensure our survival.
