Change Of Season Extended Edition Launches April 8th, 2015!

At some point, remind me to update the Behind The Book series and tell you all about the woes of self-publishing a revised edition that doesn’t qualify for a new ISBN. It’s been a learning experience, that’s for sure!

It’s taken longer than desired, but I can finally commit to an official launch date for the extended ‘Director’s Cut’ edition of Change of SeasonApril 8th, 2015!  Why this specific date, you might ask?  Two reasons:

My favourite movie of all time is Empire Records.  Capturing a day in the life of a small-town record store, it’s a movie that is filled with music, personal struggles, romance and comedy.  It’s the kind of story I enjoy telling, and it happens to be the 20th anniversary of the movie as well.

To celebrate both my beloved film and the re-release of a book that others have connected with in meaningful ways, Change of Season is free on Kindle on April 8th.  I’m thrilled to share this new version of my story with you, and for those who bought the original edition, I feel it’s only right to give you the new edition at no charge.

Note:  Change of Season will be exclusively available on Kindle in ebook form, for the time being.  It is available for free for those with Kindle Unlimited.  Prefer paperback?  You can pick it up right now at Createspace or purchase from Amazon.

For those who have supported this book since 2012, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. For those just discovering the world of Autumn Brody, I’m so happy to have you here. As for book two in the series, stay tuned: a formal release date is forthcoming at the end of the month.

Update: Change Of Season – ‘The Director’s Cut’

Things have been quiet on this front for some time.  I made a choice after the release of Collide to take on a larger role in the music blogging sphere as a means of rejuvenating creativity.  The immersion in the local indie scene has been a true gift and labour of love.  Experiences I had never considered possible for myself — shooting concerts and awards programming; daily coverage of major festivals; networking with musicians and media alike — have been a whirlwind reality.

And while I hibernated from the world of fiction, I never stopped turning my characters over and over in my mind, examining them from new angles.  Which creations called to me, years after their initial conception?  Which characters stood out as learning experiences?  What avenues did I want to explore next?

Did a genre exist that fit my work?  IAnswer:  New Adult works for me!)

I am thrilled to announce two major projects are in the works, the first of which is a re-release of Change of Season.  Initially released in 2012, the story of Autumn Brody’s struggle to reconcile the horrors of her past with the paranormal danger of her present has been the project I have enjoyed most, and judging from reader response, I’d say the feeling is mutual.
