It's official. The rights to the SOUL BORN Saga have returned to the author, me! :)
That means SOUL BORN, BLOOD DIVIDED and the yet published, FLESH ENDED, will be re-edited and re-published soon.
In fact, Soul Born is being re-edited now. That book has had a long journey. I'm going to post the whole story on my author blog soon. :) But the version of the book that was published in 2010 was written in 2007-2008. And it was hardly touched (not really edited much at all) by the publisher before it went to print. Why? Who knows. It drove me nuts. Not to mention, in 2013, I learned a great deal about myself and my writing by editing three books... three times. I had a lot of help from several agents and my editor. So I grew 1000%.
Does that mean a whole new Soul Born re-write? No. I don't want to change history or the story. Soul Born is Soul Born. A re-write now would turn it into a new book entirely. Basically, because I have a new focus, a new approach, and have learned so much. So the re-edit will address the POV issues, which were bad, I admit, and some of the other issues that plagued it.
A new "Reborn" version will be released. One that is a much cleaner read. I promise.
BLOOD DIVIDED will follow. Same deal. I will re-edit all the problems out. But the story will remain the same. Maybe some small additions here and there. :) Like a flashback that was before offered as an e-book only.
Expect to see SOUL BORN - The Reborn Edition out by the end of 2014. I will keep you all posted. And...good news...it will have the same cover painting by Dan Dos Santos, just some updated graphic design by me. :)
