Whilst working on the first three chapters of Gods and Monsters and preparing them for submission to literary agents, I found that there were a few things that I wish I had written differently. I also came across passages in the book that could be linked more precisely to later events. There are also a few typos that caused me rip what is left of my hair out.
As a result, I have decided to rewrite passages of Gods and Monsters and prepare to publish a second version of it. Obviously I feel that by making these changes it will result in a better experience for the reader. I have decided to announce this on here as people who have bought the first version will have the original first edition, which will not be available for much longer. So it is a sort of heads up. I do not have a timescale for this as obviously the promotion and submissions of Gods and Monsters uses much of my time. I am also in the process of writing the third book, The Children of Raphael. I will announce the completion of the second version as soon as I am happy with it. The cover and artwork will remain the same.
As an aside, I am also looking at the possibility of using a crowd-funding site or similar to promote a serialised work called Silhouette. If any one has any recommendations or advice for this, your comments will be most welcome.
Thanks for reading and remember. ‘Humanity is an illusion’.
