I have made the difficult decision to relaunch Deity Rising. I am deeply sorry for the delay this has caused for the finale of Deity Rising, but in the long run, I felt this was the best solution. While the main series will come to a close with book three’s release, there are still so many stories to tell in this world. (More information – click/tap “Read More”)
I had to make this difficult decision when my previous cover artist went out of business without warning and then the pandemic halted almost everything. It not only left me without a cover for Deity Rising Book Three, but it made it so I could not do a second edition of Legacy: Deity Rising Book One with a glossary and character index as I had no access to the previous cover to expand the spine for the print edition.
I was lucky enough to find a new cover artist, but it was not an expense I was expecting to make again so soon, hence the delay in the series’ final book. Plus, I had to evaluate what I could afford to do versus what I wanted to do and still remain informed with what has been going on the last few months.
In order to do second editions, I have removed Legacy and Allegiance from sale because they must be launched as new books due to the additions to each book. Some may have noticed that both books are no longer available for purchase outside of Amazon as well. I removed them from other retail sales a few months ago because of how long it takes for systems to update when a title goes out of print.
During the time the books come down, some first edition paperbacks of Legacy and Allegiance may still show up as available from third party sellers. Please do not buy from them on Amazon. All of my works will say “Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.”
eBook purchases of the first editions will not disappear from your library, but they will no longer be updated as it is considered a different edition from the ones launching.
I’ve listed the changes to the new editions below:
Changes to Deity Rising Book One:
+NEW Title: Lineage
+NEW Interior Formatting
+NEW Content (~5K words)
+Character Index Addition
Overall Story has not changed, but additions/revisions will read differently than the Legacy addition.
Changes to Deity Rising Book Two:
+NEW Interior Formatting
+NEW Content (~1K words)
+Minor revisions (Map included)
+Additions to Glossary (From book 1)
+Additions to Character Index (From book 1)
Overall story has not changed, most new content is romance related.
It has been a long road of trial and error, but I have learned valuable lessons as well as figured out what writing process is best for me. My books may take longer to come out because of this, but I hope you will enjoy what this new process brings in the future. I still have many stories to tell.
The relaunch begins this week and all books will be out by the end of July 2020. I cannot thank everyone enough for giving my series a chance.
