SERVANT release delayed a few weeks

What happens when you get someone new to self-publishing? You get delays. It’s to be expected, Precious. The cover art is taking longer than expected, and so we’re moving the release back a few weeks into October. When we get closer I’ll announce a firm date.

      Still trying to nail down dates with artist. This is the last piece of the puzzle. As soon as I have that, I’ll announce! Thanks for checking and asking.

    Hi Jon

    Can you remind me what’s going on with this new version of SERVANT – is it a re-edit, a ‘Director’s cut’, an overhaul…?

    I have the original Tor version so just wondering what the differences are between the two? Will you be releasing any notes (maybe a blog post) comparing them? It would certainly help me decide whether to pick up the new version before CURSE comes out.

    Also, can you recommend where would be the best place to order your new books in the UK?

    You betcha. This was a signficant edit, but it involved mostly line edits and resequencing and one important addition, so the base story remains the same.

    Line edits are things that make individual sentences or paragraphs read more clearly.

    Resequencing is moving chapters or sections around and does affect the experience. The biggest resequence was switching the first 8 chapters back to the original order I intended. Then there were two or three other sections that needed to be moved around inside the story.

    Those are the bulk of the edits.

    I did add a short section to the ending to clarify a few things that should have been revealed in the first version and that lead into book 2.

    You will be able to get the books on Amazon in the UK in paper and electronic format. And I’ll be holding a sale in the first week or so of the release so previous readers like you can get either format as cheaply as possible.

    Does that help?
