Good News, Everyone!

I'm home!

I had a great time at Comic-con, and everyone on the panel was super nice. But I'll go in to that in more detail in another blog, because I have more announcements to make. (Other than to say that I saw Charlie Hunnam and totally squeed).

My announcement is this: I'm taking down Switched today, which means that in approximately 24-72 hours, it will no longer be for sale, (EDIT: Switched is no longer for sale as an ebook) and I'll be taking down Torn and Ascend by Friday, August 5, 2011.

You may be saying, "Wait a second. I thought this was good news!"

But it is! Because first of all, you still have plenty of time to buy any of the books in their current state at their current price. And if you don't get a chance to get them or decide not to get them now, they will be available again in a few months.

In an earlier blog, I mentioned I would be taking down the books in August and September to get ready for the St. Martin's release of the Trilogy. After talking with the publishers, we've decided to move the dates up to July and August because there is a big cover reveal for the new books happening in August, and we thought it would be wonky if the old books were still up.

Basically, St. Martin's is going to start their big launch for the Trilogy, and it would be confusing and messy if my older versions were still available. So I'm unpublishing them.

Here's why this is good news for you, the reader:
  • The big cover reveal is going to happen in early August. (I'll let you know the exact date as soon I find out).  It's fun to see new covers. (Especially if you're Alex, who's been dying since I won't let him see him them yet.).
  • I'm also going to announce something new and fun with the Trilogy. I'm not going to tell you what that is yet, but I will at the same time as the cover reveal.
  • And remember, even if you don't get the books now at their current prices and forms, they will be available in a few months with less errors at only slightly higher prices. In fact, you can pre-order all three books in the Trylle Trilogy in paperback already, with the pre-ordering for ebooks coming soon. (The paperbacks are actually cheaper with St. Martin's).

Pre-odrer Torn: here.
Pre-order Ascend: here.

For people who didn't know that the Trilogy was going to be published with St. Martin's, here's the blog where I discuss it from back in May: blog.

And now I am going to go spend some time with my dog and cats, who I missed terribly while I was away.
