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.
