Back at the beginning of March I announced on this blog that ATLAS 2 would be released in the third week of April.
At the end of March I received an offer from 47North, Amazon Publishing’s speculative fiction imprint. In exchange for giving up the rights to ATLAS and the next two books, 47North would help me potentially reach a larger audience.
After much internal debate, I eventually accepted, and signed a three-book deal with Amazon. I submitted ATLAS 2 on April 20, received a development edit back a week later, and submitted the updated version one week after that.
The new release date for ATLAS 2 is December 2, 2014. 47North will release ATLAS 3 not long after that. Also on December 2, 2014, a newly revised edition of ATLAS 1 will become available. I’m not sure what will change, since I haven’t received the developmental notes on Book 1 yet, though I’m guessing the changes will be minor. On December 2, you can update from the Manage Your Kindle page.
The goal is to make sure that I’m giving you, the reader, the best possible product, while at the same time helping me, the author, engage as many new readers as possible. Hopefully partnering with 47North will enable all that, and both reader and author benefit.
We’ll see how it turns out!
P.S. Book 2 is available for pre-order by clicking the above ATLAS 2 (ATLAS Series) picture.
