eBook Release Update 2!

January 10, 2012

First of all thank you to those of you who have been asking about the release of the eBook of Legend of Zodiac – Fall of Darkness.  There seems to have been a bit of a snag with the formatting at 52 Novels. It seems they got snowed under with demand over December and several novels they have been working on have been delayed. I’m in the process of finding out what the new timeline will be but expect the release to be before the end of January. I’ll keep you posted.

Am I disappointed at the delay? Of course. December and the following month or two are key selling times for novels as everyone who received an eReader over the holidays loads up on new books. However, as in any multi-party endeavour patience is sometimes required when things don’t go as expected.

The 52 Novels people are in a growing business and if you’ve ever been in a new business (I have, as a writer and otherwise) you can suddenly get caught when demand for your services exceeds your ability to meet that demand. I’m certain they will make the adjustments necessary for next time as it’s all part of the learning curve for a growing business.

As a writer whose living depends on income from my craft the loss of sales is regrettable but it is only money and he sun has risen every day so it’s safe to say the world hasn’t ended yet.  Having said all that I’m in the process of exploring backup alternatives to ensure this doesn’t happen again. To those of you who are waiting your patience is appreciated ad should be rewarded soon.

The good news is that in the meantime work on the second book of the Legend of Zodiac trilogy is continuing apace and I’m quite excited about the direction it is going in. I’ll be providing updates on that in the weeks ahead.

A happy 2012 to all of you and happy reading!

– John
