Some people may have noticed in the last few weeks that Haunting Blue has been dropping off the major outlets. That’s because publication rights to the book reverted back to me, and in the months since, the novel has been dropping off from all outlets.
To put it simply, Haunting Blue is out of print.
While it saddens me to see my first novel enter the “old edition graveyard,” rest assured, this isn’t the end of Haunting Blue, but rather, a new beginning. As we speak, Seventh Star Press is putting the final touches on a new, improved release of Haunting Blue! And while it’s too soon to announce a date, it won’t be a long wait.
So what’s new?
- Well, for starters, my Seventh Star series artist, the amazing Bonnie Wasson, is creating a new cover for this edition, along with fabulous interior art. Watch for reveals in the coming weeks!
- I took advantage of the re-publication to tweak some passages and fix a couple of boo-boos. And just for fun, I added a poem by Blue (actually penned by reader and good friend Nicole Rinaldi, who also wrote the poems in Virtual Blue) to delve a bit more deeply into the character’s psyche.
- And what I love the most: For the first time, the loose “trilogy” of Haunting Blue, Haunting Obsession, and Virtual Blue will have a unified series look.
Though it’s my first novel, I’m still very proud of this story, and I’m as excited to share it now as I was back in 2010. We’re doing everything we can to make this a “deluxe edition.” I’m excited to see Haunting Blue re-launch with a Seventh Star Sendoff. Stay tuned!
