Do your e-books have Digital Rights Management (DRM)?

All Love in Dark Settings Press e-books sold at Dusk Peterson's store (Gumroad), Smashwords, and Amazon are DRM-free. You can read them, without restriction, on any device that reads the particular format you've bought. Some other retailers may apply DRM to the e-books; I have no control over this.

Do I have to read the rest of the series to understand a story that occurs in the middle of it?


Most of the stories in series are designed so that you don't need to have knowledge of what came before; any information you need is included within the story itself.

In a very few cases, a summary of previous events will be included at the beginning of the story. This is written in as entertaining a manner as possible, to prevent you from falling asleep during the summary.

A lot of these stories were written out of order, so there's no harm in you reading them out of order. However, you should be aware that later stories in a series often contain major spoilers for earlier stories.

May I make fan works?

Please do. For details, see my policies on copyright and fan works.

Which accessible books are available for the disabled?

My Braille and DAISY books can be downloaded for free at Bookshare. You don't need to be a member to download the electronic files. (I only have one book at Bookshare so far, but I'm planning to donate more in the future.) Bookshare also provides information on obtaining embossed Braille books.

My e-books at certain bookstores are always DRM-free (read more about where to find my DRM-free e-books here), so they can be read by screenreaders. In addition to the Kindle and epub editions, I sell multiformat editions through my store and through Smashwords; the multiformat editions include doc e-books (that is, Microsoft Word), as well as html e-books.

If you have any questions, please e-mail me.

I'm visually impaired. What else should I know about this website?

The pages at this domain consist of black text on white pages, with no sidebars.

This domain conforms as closely as I can get to the World Wide Web Consortium's Checkpoints for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, taking into account that I have limited knowledge of HTML and work with an older What You See Is What You Get editor. The domain conforms to the standards of Section 508. It has been tested in 16 bit, 24 bit, and 256 colors. It has been checked using the Window-Eyes screen reader and a 28-point bold-faced font. The site has passed theVischeck, the Web Page Backward Compatibility Viewer, the Lynx Inspection, and AnyBrowser.com's Screen Size Tester and Web Site Viewer.

It also makes a mean cup of coffee. If you still have any problems viewing this site, please e-mail me.
