This one volume edition includes a preface for my readers to explain why the new edition. I had previously published it as a trilogy because in paperback I thought it would be easier for readers to carry around. But never forgot the chapters I had cut to please those who were demanding the book be shorter for production reasons. In fact those chapters and characters haunted me. Somewhat the same reasons why Stephen King published new editions of The Stand and his Gunslinger series. That he did that gave me the courage to do the same. All to be explained in my preface.
This 2nd Edition is the first in the From Darkness Series although a Stand Alone - that is, in publishing speak, a complete story on its own. In this new edition, five of the originally inspired chapters that readers have not read, except for my original beta readers who loved it as it was, are now restored. Two of the original characters have been asked back and have graciously returned. And the twisted back story of twisted Ed is now included! All restored.
I am doing a final read thru and edit now but the Revised, Restored, and Enhanced Edition will be approximately 180,000 words that Stephan King once described as" a goodish length for a book." Somewhere between 700-800 pages.
I hope to have an awesome new cover for the series. Cover reveal to come so stay tuned. Epic Paranormal Fantasy. Supernatural Romantic Suspense. Coming your way.
Until January 3 I'll leave the 1st edition up and available.
