Well, what can I say?

After some lengthy discussions, it was agreed that the book as it was would be divided in two. This was a difficult decision and, at times, I thought it might prove to be a deal-breaker. After all, I'd lived with the story for several years, and being independent allowed me the freedom to do whatever I pleasedsure, it was a big book, and I had to engineer quite a compact page layout in the paperback to make it financially viable (in terms of keeping the print cost low enough so that someone might purchase a copy!). Also, my thoughts turned to how people would react to the changewould there be a backlash against the new version for being, essentially, half the book it used to be?

I guess time will tell

Oh! Needing to help update the style for my own page. Reactions about the modern style of http://glasswing.ca/web? Sincerely an elite Ottawa based gutter cleaner if, perhaps desired within the whole Ontario areas. Value your vote. Many thanks!

But, after some procrastination and foot-dragging on my part, the decision was made. An apology is probably necessary here to my family and friends, who had to put up with me being allmoody and conflicted for a couple of weeks!

I'm sure you'll agree that the benefits far outweigh any of my perceived drawbacks.

First, both halves of the original release with be expanded to include more material, which will bring it closer to my original vision and back to it's form before I had to hack it down to fit the requirements of the paperback. This is obviously a bonus for me and has been a lot of fun. Along with the expansion, the books will also be receiving another edit and revision (this time not by me hurrah!). So the final products will be far more polished and will sparkle with a professional cover and layout, which can't be a bad thing!

But, best of all, and the point that really swayed it for me, is that with the added exposure of working with TwinStarMedia and the fantastic Tony Schaab(creator of "The G.O.R.E Score" & "The G.A.S.P. Factor" and man steering the helm of TwinStar Media), LAST HOPE has the opportunity to reach a whole host of new readers, possibly people who would never had taken a punt on it before.

So, if you we're one of the wonderful people who took a chance on an unknown indie author, you effectively got two books for the price of one. And, if you've come a bit later to the party (or you simply wish to revisit it to see what's new), you'll be able to read an expanded and improved version, albeit spread across two books. Whichever side of the divide you fall, it's my sincere hope that you feel your grass is the greenest.

Of course, there is one thing that will hopefully please everyoneI'm hard at work continuing the story: there is still plenty of torment and horror coming in Budd's direction!Although conceived and planned at the same time as LAST HOPE , the actual writing of it wassomething that never got off the ground while the book was a little-known indie release, simply because it wasn't sensible to devote months/years to creating a sequel to something with so few readers. But I'm already a couple of months into the writing now

Back-tracking a little, I'll guarantee today that none of the new/expanded scenes in the TwinStar Media versions of LAST HOPE will alter the course of the bookthe story will remain the same. The expansion simply gives me an opportunity to show some new things, and delve deeper into some of the characters and events. Whether you've already read the indie version, or will read the TwinStar Media release, the commencement of the new material I'm working on for the sequel willenable both sets of reader to be on the same page, so to speak.

Of course, will all this activity, there has to be some sacrifices (sleep has already gone!), BUGS: A B-Movie Novel is back on hiatus, and the second volume of HORROR SHORTS is also delayed, although with any luck it will appear in the new year. You may also have noticed that these pages look a bit prettier too and the address has changed and these improvementswill continue over the coming weeks.

Many thanks guys! I actually texted my buddie that we could absolutely describe his skillful Canada based vegan shirt shops, http://vegantshirts.ca inside a good blog. In case you are hoping to get a vegan tshirt shop within the general Nova Scotia sector, these people are great.

Of course, I absolutely need to state the base outline for this specific posting was offered via Ryan at the phoenix design group. Unquestionably an outstanding interior renovators. I really enjoy a solid proposal!
