With only 3 more chapters to go until the end of _Above Ground_, I am neck-deep in getting the story ready for print/ebook release.
Yes, there are revisions… even though what is now posted online is supposed to be the rewrite. I’m silly, I know. Most of the changes smooth out scenes, fix timelines and little plot holes. I’ve reworked the first chapter, and will also do whatever my lovely editor, Terra Whiteman, orders me to do. (If you haven’t read Terra’s series, The Antithesis, it’s awesome.)
So I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to my qazyfiction fans, especially those who’ve followed me from the very beginning. This story wouldn’t exist without you.
Which brings me to:
Everyone who has commented, supported me, and been generally lovely is going on the acknowledgements page. If you have a preferred internet handle/name, let me know. Otherwise I’ll go with the name I know you by. :-) (And if you don’t want to be included, let me know too. But it’ll make me sad.)
Regarding the print/ebook release:
- Estimated publication date is mid-end of October.
- On October 1st, I will reveal the cover and a special offer to pre-order ebook/print copies to my mailing list only. The ebooks will be signed. Pre-orders will be limited; sign up so you don’t miss out.
- I haven’t announced this anywhere else yet, but I’ll be running a blog tour throughout November. If any of you have active blogs and want to take part, fill in this form — you’ve got first dibs on dates!
- If you want to stay on top of the latest news, I’ll be posting about it more on amharte.com, facebook and twitter.
As for sequels to _Above Ground_… One book at a time, eh? ;-)
Good luck. I’ve been meaning to say this, but wordpress has been kicking me out. I’m so happy to see this come to fruition. It inspires me to do the same. I can’t wait to have this book in my tablet and on my shelves.
Excited for you (and us) to see it all coming together.
I think I speak on behalf of all your readers when I say “Of course” we expect Book 2 to happen eventually, but we can be patient – we all know life happens too.
