As I mentioned last month, this is a revised newsletter. You should receive it (or read it here on my site) each month with periodic emails in between when I have something important to announce.
Without further ado, let’s get into this month’s news…
“On Borrowed Time” Release Date Announced
The next Kyle Simmons book, “On Borrowed Time” is now available on Amazon for pre-order. It will be officially published on June 27th.
I’m offering special pre-launch pricing. Order now and save $1.00 off the regular price for this.
You can order your copy by going here:
“On Borrowed Time” has been in the works for awhile now. For starters, my last author revision took several parts of the plot and expanded them to be more complete and added another plot twist.
The revision wound up adding nearly 16,000 words — good for readers, not so good for me.
While the additional words make this a stronger story, it also means my previously planned deadlines to get the book to my editors and beta readers went out of the proverbial window.
And of couse, that meant the publication date had to be delayed as well.
So long story short, this book is now with beta readers to catch anything plot-related my editors or I might have missed (i.e. how did Simmons get into his car if he didn’t open the car door first.)
My editors and I typically catch 99% of those buggers but every book there’s something that somehow sneaks past us and gets nabbed by my beta readers.
From there, it will go to my Street Team. (If you’re part of my Street Team, you’ll receive a separate update email.)
Needless to say, everyone who helps me get each book ready for publication has been working very hard to get the book ready for publication before month’s end.
I’m proud to say that we’ve accomplished exactly that and on June 27th, “On Borrowed Time” will go live.
Here’s the Amazon links again:
If you’re looking for something new to read while you’re waiting for “On Borrowed Time” to be released, I might be able to help.
My first book recommendation is “Hell’s Children” by John L. Monk.
A number of reviewers describe it as a modern day “Lord of the Flies” novel and I agree.
While it’s categorized as a Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller, you won’t find any undead creatures in this story.
It’s a wonderful story of young adults banding together in the hopes of surviving and rebuilding society.
My second book recommendation is “November’s Past” by A.E. Howe.
It may sound silly, but I try to avoid reading anything similar to what I’m currently writing.
It’s simple really.
I don’t want to inadvertently borrow storyline ideas from another author’s work.
Of course, once my book releases on the 27th, I plan on continuing to enjoy reading the rest of this book because it’s been great.
So What’s E.G. Writing Next?
I’m starting work on a new post-apocalyptic book series which will be 2-3 books in length. The first two books are outlined and I’m currently writing the first book. More details to come in next month’s newsletter.
From there, I’m planning to start work on the second Cole Hutchinson thriller novel.
Until next time,
P.S. As I’ve mentioned more than once, most of you have told me you’d prefer I spend my time writing novels than emails. I’m perfectly fine with that but I want to give you a heads-up that you’ll get another email from me in about 2 weeks, reminding everyone when Amazon has officially released “On Borrowed Time”.
