What’s that? “Second Edition,” you say?
Well, as it happens, the story is the same. A couple of typos have been corrected, but that’s the only change to the actual novel.
The big change is the cover. A few people have expressed misgivings about or outright dislike of the original cover, finding it a bit too much like Archer, and therefore suggesting that the book is a parody, which anyone who has read it can tell you it is not. It is an action/adventure thriller, along the same vein as the Praetorian series.
Now, I’d already been hearing a bit of this, though I’d also heard from people who really liked the cover. But when the International Lord of Hate himself, Larry Correia, suggests, “You might want to consider a different cover; it looks like it’s a comedy,” you listen. So, shortly after LTUE, I contacted Kevin Granzow, who has done covers for a couple of friends of mine, including Steven Hildreth and Ross Elder.
The page on Amazon hasn’t updated with the new cover yet, though the preview file on “Look Inside” has, strangely enough. The paperback is also going to be unavailable until I can get a proof approved; have to check the fixed interior formatting and how the cover file prints. But it should be back up in a few days.
If you have already purchased the Kindle version of Kill Yuan, you can go on Amazon, go to “Manage My Kindle,” and there should be an option to download an update.
I also just approved the files for the Kill Yuan audiobook, so that should be up on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes in another few days, as well. I’ll post again here when it is.
Now back to hammering out the last chapter of Lex Talionis.
