Books, Publishing, The Wheel of the Year

UPDATE: Summer Solstice

Okay, so some things that I’d thought would make my book series better overall are indeed doing that (reformatting and revising and error-correcting the files of the two published books). Some things, though, are proving to be a bit problematic and/or uncontrollably slow (reconfiguring things with distributors, submitting files, updating vendors).

Here is where things currently stand:

The Stone of Shadows

  • Updated on Kindle and is available. (If anyone experiences a problem with a file they purchased previously, please let me know.)
  • Updated for Print and should be available wherever it had been before…as distributed through Ingram/LightningSource. *However! For some glitchy reason, it does not seem to be listed on Amazon or Espresso Book Machine. I am working on fixing that.*
  • Not updated in ebook form anywhere else because of annoying, technical reasons. The old version has been removed from distribution, but it can take up to a month for everyone’s computer systems to get the message. Until then, I can’t get the distributor’s computer system to accept my updated listing. (As with the Kindle version, if anyone experiences a problem with a file they purchased previously, please let me know.)

The Darkest Midnight

  • Not yet updated, as I’m currently at work on those files. Updated on Kindle and is now available. (Again, if anyone experiences a problem with a file they purchased previously, please let me know.)
  • The original version is still available on Kindle, but not available elsewhere (which means that hopefully what’s happening with The Stone of Shadows ebook listing will not happen to it). Annoyingly, the same thing that is happening (or, rather, not happening with The Stone of Shadows is happening with The Darkest Midnight. So, it is not in ebook form anywhere else. Until various computer systems get the news and relinquish their hold, I can’t get the distributor’s computer system to accept my updated listing. (As with the Kindle version, if anyone experiences a problem with a file they purchased previously, please let me know.)
  • Not available for print by Espresso Book Machine for unknown, nonsense reasons. As with the other book, I’m working on fixing that.

The Vale of Silence

Not yet finished. (No surprise there, right?) But I do hope to publish it this winter, if not sooner. The reconfiguration of my distribution set up should help with that.

My apologies for any confusion, difficulties with existing ebook files, and the extended wait on the third book.
