I have a release date, and it's soon. This Friday to be exact. On the 9th September Succubus Summoning 201 should be available to buy from Amazon and similar places.
I also still suck at deadlines.
I wanted to get everything in so I could sure of the release date and have a nice couple of weeks hyping it up here and on other websites. As it was I delivered the manuscript 7 hours after the Monday noon deadline, and this for a book where I'd already completed the final chapter two months ago! :)
Thankfully my publisher, Excessica, were still cool with everything and Succubus Summoning 201 should go live at the end of the week.
One thing I want to clear up now before it disappoints readers who might have been expecting to find a lot of new stuff in the ebook version - there are not many extra scenes this time around. I tried. I had a plan for a few extra background bits on college life through the eyes of Darvill. I battled with it right up until the morning of the day the book was due, but I couldn't get them to work.
(This is one of the reasons why the manuscript was delivered 7 hours late.)
What I did do is spend a lot of time adding a bit more polish to the chapters. Some sections were rewritten to be less clunky, a lot of typos were found and fixed, and I changed some of the terminology to be more consistent across the whole book. It should be a much smoother read now.
It should also be free of some of the weird continuity errors that inevitably happen when a series is spread across five years and the writer forgets or misremembers details. One of these errors I only managed to spot in my final proofreading check on my kindle.
(This is the other reason why the manuscript was delivered 7 hours late.)
It's Succubus Summoning 201, but it's a much higher quality version of Succubus Summoning 201 (crosses fingers, hopes he didn't miss too many typos...). I hope you all enjoy it when it comes out at the end of the week.
