Happy Monday, Copious Notes readers! I have a lot of news to share.
This post is the launch pad for events leading up to the release of As Darkness Ends: Book Two. My second round of edits are complete and with just one round to go, I can begin to get a lot of things set for the book’s release. The edits went well and I got a lot of good feedback from my editor. I’ve punched up sections that needed work and exercised the comma demons! I’m as excited as ever to get this book into your hands.
All right, I’ve stalled long enough so here’s three pieces of news:
1. I have set a release date for the book! As Darkness Ends: Book Two will be available on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012. Yes, leap-year day! In four years from now, I can say the book is only one year old.
2. Advance Reader Copy (ARC) requests are now open. If you are interested in obtaining the book in advance, please look to the top of the right-hand sidebar of this blog. I’ve set up a simple form where you can request an ARC. This is a limited-time window, so be aware that the deadline to request an ARC is Monday, February 13th at 9:00 PM Eastern.
3. As I mentioned previously, this book isn’t simply titled ‘Book Two’. It has its own special name that gives it a set place in the series. As such, I am going to have some fun by revealing the cover in small increments. The title will be revealed last, but there’s a bonus: There will be a contest to guess the name. More details will come in the next few days.
It’s exciting times as I gear up to launch this book into your hands. I can’t wait to hear everyone’s feedback once it’s out. There’s plenty more to come before the 29th, so be sure to check back soon.
