I really hate to make this decision, but I’m going to have to postpone releasing Revelation for another week – two at most.
I committed to releasing on October 1, and tried my very best to meet that goal. I am working tirelessly in order to get it out as soon as possible. Once Revelation is ready, I will post everywhere there is to post so that people will know.
I am incredibly sorry, as I’ve already told people personally/through email that the book will be out on the 1st. Expect it to be out sometime early to mid-October now.
Now, the reasons. The manuscript was orginally a mere 49,000 words. After three rounds of edits, it is now 72,000 words. I have a lot of extra words that I had not been counting on, which means editing takes much, much longer. Once done with a final round of editing, the manuscript still needs to see the copy editor. Copy editing is pending upon my completion of the final version of the manuscript. As I said before, this could be a week, two at most.
The positive of this is that Revelation will be released with very few typos and be a more complete package. I could release at my projected time, but I don’t feel it would be fair to you as readers to release something that wasn’t yet ready. Things come up, and I couldn’t have predicted how much the manuscript expanded. I guess that’s more story to enjoy, but all the same, I will take it as a lesson not to bite off more than I can chew, as well as give myself a little more cushion when timing my releases.
As much as I’d love to release a new book every two months, the reality is, I work a full-time job that makes this very difficult. I will know better for next time.
As always, thank you for your patience and continued support! You guys are the reason I write, and hopefully, you’ll all bear with me for another week.
