With the second book birthday of my debut epic fantasy novel coming up fast, it's time to share the news that on July 6th, 2023, we'll be saying goodbye to The Vow That Twisted Fate first editions.
Both e-book and the Amazon paperback versions of the first edition (with it's split-character cover) will be leaving retailers on July 6th, 2023, to make way for the new edition.
There's no need to be sad, though! Because a brand new second edition is waiting in the wings!
This newly revised edition will hit e-book retailers on July 9th, 2023, and comes with:
-A whole new custom cover created by MIBLart (courtesy of a giveaway sponsored by Dale L. Roberts).
-A fully re-edited interior, knocking out the sly typos/grammatical errors that managed to survive FOUR separate editors' eyes in the debut.
-An epilogue featuring special deleted scenes.
A special hardback edition of the newly revised second edition is also in the works, and is tentatively slated for a July 2023 release.
Want to grab a first edition paperback or e-book while there's still time?
-Hop over here to grab your copy (e-books are 99-cents and the paperbacks are currently listed at $10.00 US or less in all markets that permitted me to mark the book down).
-OR e-mail me at email@example.com to request an invoice for a signed first edition paperback (due to ship in July 2023).

Over the weekend, it became clear that I had two choices left for the release of volume three:
1.) Release a roughly-edited, rushed final draft of Vanguard of Justice to you on schedule in April.
2.) Allow the retailers to cancel my pre-orders (which would cancel the rest of the series, too).
You all deserve the best I can give you in this series. Oracle of Life (volume one) and Monk of Death (volume two) are both already available to read. Book three, the file that was completely lost on my drives, though quickly revised, is very rough and needs time to go through the proper editing process before it releases.
What this means for you as readers:
Anyone who pre-ordered should now have received a pre-order cancellation notice from the retailers for books three and four.
I am going to step away from the series for a bit to clear my head and come back to Vanguard of Justice with fresh eyes and a fresh mind, to make this the best book of the series yet. When it's polished and ready for the world, I'll launch the book without a pre-order and let you all know it's available.
If you'd like an update when the book goes live, my newsletter subscribers will hear first (you can sign up here to receive my newsletters).
Thank you all again for your support, and for reading the worlds I've created!

Here's a sneak peek at the blurb:
Flames rise on the horizon. The Godmother rises to meet them.
Eliza Farrington the Third is the top Fairy Warrior in the universe, undefeated in both magic and physical strength. She is also The Godmother -- the protector and trainer of the Crown Princess.
For twenty years, Eliza has prepared her charge to bring change to the rule of terror the tyrannical Fairy King and Queen have inflicted upon the worlds. The Princess's kindness and mercy are already renowned, and her coronation is only a month away.
But the Dragon Emperor's legions landing on their doorstep threatens everything.
When the Dragon Emperor presents the sole remaining royal Dragon Egg to the Fair Folk with a deadly proposal, can Eliza change the fate of her beloved Princess?
Or will the hate of multiple generations snuff out their only flame of hope?
It's time! Angel's Abdication is here!
Angel Princess Seracuse has fallen from The Heavens to escape an arranged marriage to The Devil Himself, but has she fallen from the frying pan into the fire?
Angel's Abdication is volume one in Demon King Draco and Angel Princess Seracuse's dark fantasy romance duology in my Splitting Worlds series.
