M&M of Restraint is going through a transformation. Aside from proper editing, both for content and proofreading, the first four books in the series are getting updated covers. All books will be receiving a new synopsis, as well as expanded and changed storylines. All titles will be available in both ebook format and print.
I will use Restraint as an example of the massive transformation underway:
Edition #1, released April 24th, 2012: 42,000 words, with 16 chapters & an epilogue.
Edition #2: released July 1st, 2013: 96,000 words, with 36 chapters & a prologue and epilogue.
Final edition: 151,000 words, with 41 chapters & a prologue and epilogue.
The reasons for the books being taken off sale:
1: Erica Chilson is embarrassed by the 'unpolished' quality of her works.
2: If a new reader's standards were high, even when buying a 99 cent title, they would take a pass on Ms. Chilson's books in the future, missing out on a highly engrossing series.
3: Most readers do NOT reread. Any NEW readers who get their hands on a fresh Restraint or Unleashed, will immediately dive into Dexter, and then they will be confused beyond measure with the contradictions and inconsistencies by reading the Final Editions, and then the original editions of subsequent titles.
4: The author has developed story threads sooner than before, expanding greatly in the character development, and has removed egregious editing errors: grammar, punctuation, discrepancies, plot holes, and story threads the author was uncomfortable with in her books.
5: The author feels the books were rush-written. Therefore, not at their best.
6: Erica Chilson has matured emotionally, as well as growing exponentially in her craft.
Lucky #7: Because M&M deserves it. Because the readers deserve it. Because Erica deserves to feel proud of her work, even if this has been the hardest decision she's ever had to make.
Important information for purchasing readers:
You will NOT have to re-purchase any of the titles. You will be able to update via Amazon, and the author will be posting a form to update directly from her via direct-to-kindle download, with proof of purchase.
Please stay tuned for more information: blog tour signups, review copies, release date schedules, giveaways, and books signings.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this highly stressful time.
