So............Moon-Wake is available for purchase. I started processing it hours ago but thought it would at least take the night to go live. Apparently not. It's here! So that's good news!
Get it on Kindle here.
Get it through Smashwords here.
1. Still working on the print version and that may take quite a bit longer, perhaps even several weeks, on account of having to receive and then review proof copies, but I will keep you posted.
2. For my Nook readers, I'm sorry to say it is not available through Barnes & Noble yet and I don't know how long it will take to fix the issues. I've never had a problem with B&N before but that's because in the past I have uploaded the files through the old "PubIt!" interface. Early this year, however, they rolled out their new interface - "Nook Press". One would think by the very definition of "new" that it would be better, improved upon. Unfortunately--and I'm not quite sure how they managed this--it's actually considerably worse than the old platform. There seem to be endless errors with the uploading process, each of which take nearly half an hour to reveal themselves. I've tried all the typical file types and none of them give me the green light on Nook Press. I did some googling and discovered I am only one in a long line of authors/publishers who have had/are having difficulties with the platform. And no one has any answers. There have been people discussing the problems and writing articles detailing their experiences since March. It is November and evidently nothing has changed. I will continue to plug away and hopefully get it straightened out one way or another. But I honestly don't know how long it will take. Sorry:( However, there is a bit of good news for Nook owners! Nooks read ePub files and you can purchase the very thing through Smashwords. It might not be convenient and it's not the website you're accustomed to making your book purchases on, but it's just as safe, if not as widely known. I know a lot of people aren't comfortable buying outside their usual site but it's safe and legit, it just won't have any sort of B&N stamp on it. So yeah, just click the Smashwords link above, choose your file extension, and begin reading!
Hope you guys enjoy Book Six! Drop me a line and let me know what you think!
PS. I'm sorry this has all sort of been lacking in ceremony. I didn't get a chance to reveal the cover early or let you know how close I was to publishing or anything. It's been far less fun getting here than usual but I hope you have fun reading it now that it is here!
PPS. I also forgot to mention something else. One of the reasons I have been so unceremonious with releasing this book is because my fiance and I finally set a date for our wedding and we've been working on the planning for the last month and a half! Yay! It's just under a year away. So we're super excited but, needless to say, super stressed and busier than ever. Anyway, it doesn't matter much now because Moon-Wake is here! Now, I'll stop distracting you so you can start reading:)
