Well, I made a boo-boo and didn’t make this announcement last month like I should have. It’s an issue of me screwing up release dates versus publication dates and DUHHHHH. So I didn’t get to issue you fair warning on this.
ANYWAY! This is one of the things I’ve been up to.
My first mystery, Land of Entrapment, is no longer available for sale.
You heard that right. Land of Entrapment is no more, at least not as a new book. It has retired gracefully, as all authors hope their work does.
There may be a few new copies still floating around out there, but soon, you will only be able to purchase it used, at least for now.
OMG ANDI NOOOOOOO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN HOW CAN I GO ON I’M LOST WITHOUT THAT BOOK AND MY ENTIRE WORLD IS CRUMBLING BEFORE MY EYES SOMEBODY GET ME A BAG I’M HYPERVENTILATING NO WAIT MAYBE SCOTCH OMG…
It’s okay. You’ll be okay. How do I know this? Because this is part of my secret news (that is no longer secret, obviously):
I’m rebooting it!
That means I’m re-writing it and will be re-issuing it in the coming months. I’m tentatively hoping to do that in the summer of 2016. It could happen earlier, but I have other things I’m working on that I will tell you about in the coming days, so the summer of 2016 is more realistic.
So keep an eye out for Land of Entrapment 2.0.
Also, as a heads up, you should REALLY go get your copies of State of Denial before November. Seriously. Stock up. I’m not kidding.
In the meantime, I would like to extend a huge thank you to the crew at Regal Crest Enterprises, who published Land of Entrapment back in 2008. It’s my first published novel, and I am so grateful that RCE took a chance on an unknown and consequently untested author. I feel like I’ve got some experience under my belt now, and that I’m not untested.
And readers, I couldn’t have done this without you. I was frankly a little worried about how Land of Entrapment would be received, that it wouldn’t resonate with anybody, and that the posse I enjoyed spending so much time with would languish. Readers, you totally allayed my fears, and LoE (its nickname) found a place among you.
I hope you’ll give the reboot a chance, too. Regardless, thank you so much for all of your support over the years. It’s meant the world to me.
So hang in there, dear readers! LoE will return, rested and dusted off.
Land of Entrapment is dead! Long live Land of Entrapment!
