Mythologicals Saga Updates

Hello Faithful Readers!

I’ve mentioned updating Harbinger and Augury a couple of times over the last weeks/months. The reasons for doing so are numerous and varied, but primarily, it’s a twofold issue:

  1. Harbinger no longer meets my expectations for quality. It was the first novel-length book I wrote. And, frankly put, the writing sucks. Still love the story–hate the writing.
  2. Even more importantly, Harbinger no longer fits with the rest of my brand as it exists currently. Now, that doesn’t mean I plan to change the story dramatically (though the book will read much differently when I’m done with the re-write, the core story will remain mostly unchanged), but I do plan to change how the story fits into the series, which will help the series in a couple of ways: fitting within my  paranormal romance brand, and letting Augury shine.

Harbinger cannot be considered part of the romance genre (even though it has very strong romantic elements) because, well, it does not end in an emotionally satisfying way. I’m sorry for that. It sucks. But, damn it, it’s how the story unfolds and to change that would be unauthentic. The worst part is that Harbinger’s tragic ending (combined with the crummy writing) seems to keep people from continuing on to Augury–which is a tragedy in and of itself.

Augury is quite possibly the most favorite thing I’ve ever written. It deserves to shine.

So, starting today, I’m enacting a plan to let it do just that. The plan has six steps:

  1. Remove Harbinger and Augury from all e-book stores (sounds drastic, but just wait! It will be worth it!)
  2. Revise Augury to support a new series order, placing Augury as the first book in the series.
  3. Rewrite Harbinger to align with readers’ expectations, and my own expectations for my work.
  4. Rerelease Augury as the first book in the Immortals Duology*.
  5. Rerelease Harbinger as a supplement to Augury. It will still be Augury’s prequel, but now it will be branded that way. Instead of a flagship title, Harbinger will be aimed at readers who are interested in exploring Luceam’s tragic past before the events of Augury.
  6. Complete and release Corrollary, the second and final book in the Immortals Duology* in 2019.

*Immortals Duology is my current working title for the revamped series. It might stick, it might change. You all will be the first to know, either way.

So why am I telling you all of this?

Primarily because I want you to know that if you own the Harbinger and/or Augury e-books, your copies will be unaffected when I remove them from e-bookstores. You’ll still own the copies you already have–they won’t disappear from your library or your ereaders, so have no fear.  When I get ready to release the updated versions, later this year, I will give an update on how to get a copy without having to buy them again if you own the originals.

So wish me luck! And check-in here, on Twitter, and Facebook for updates!
