Waiting For A Star To Fall Is Now Available – And Free!

(for the day, anyway)

Today is the day:  Waiting For A Star To Fall, the sequel to Change Of Season, is now available on Kindle and Createspace!

(For those who dig paperback and Amazon together like PB&J, Amazon is processing the paperback edition for their catalogue.  It should arrive this week.)

What began as a sudden flurry of writing last November is now a shiny reality, filled with romance, music and murder.  Oh, and ghosts.  You know me.

To thank those of you who follow closely, Star is free on Kindle for release day.  Help yourself and enjoy!  All I ask is you review and rate when done on Goodreads and Amazon.  That’s worth more to an author than cash dollars.

(My cats would like you to know that if you prefer to pay in cash, they will gladly spend it on tuna.)

Speaking of paperback, the Goodreads giveaway for Star is ongoing!  I might even autograph it for you.  Enter here.

And now, with as much dignity as any indie author ever mustered, go forth and read!  The book is set in July, so you might as well savour it with the proper sticky weather.

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.

Change Of Season Re-Release Slated For March 14, 2015

It’s been a busy month of edits and creative oversight, all leading to a final release date for the Change of Season “Director’s Cut”.  You can expect it to be available exclusively on Kindle and Createspace on March 14th, 2015.

“What do you mean by ‘Director’s Cut’?”

The closest comparison I can liken it to is Donnie Darko.  If you’ve watched the theatrical cut and director’s cut, you’re aware that the majority of the story remains unchanged.  There are expanded moments, moments that have shifted, and new scenes/editing that add a different clarity to the film.  There are also some strange changes to the soundtrack in my opinion, but that’s for another blog.

With this edition, I have taken a similar approach.  Certain scenes have expanded to reveal new insights into characters and events.  Certain moments are reconstructed – alternate takes, if it were a film.  This isn’t a dramatic expansion — I elected for a longer novel from the first edition — but it is refined and refocused.

“Have there been any changes to accommodate Waiting For A Star To Fall (the sequel)?”

That would be cheating, wouldn’t it?  I don’t believe in cheating.
