So what exactly is going on with The Night Touched Chronicles and Becoming Night Touched?

I’ve been briefly mentioning changes coming here and there, but I haven’t taken the time to really talk to you guys in depth about anything. I don’t think that’s very fair. I’ve tried to be as open and honest with you guys as possible. With everything going on on my end, I don’t think I have done a very good job. So today I am going to remedy that. I hope that by the time I have finished and published this post, you guys are still willing to stick by me.

1. What’s up with the hiatus?

Several months ago I kept going back and forth on what I termed as “hiatus.” I had set a schedule for myself that included blogging, vlogging, book reviews, and other things of that nature. My husband and I moved in with my mother in law, which turned out to be the worst thing we could have ever done. I found it hard to stick to my schedule because her negativity weighed too heavily on me. I’m not saying that I’m not negative, because I am, but living in a house with that woman killed my creativity and the stress was too much to handle. Publishing Jeremy almost didn’t happen. Brian and I have moved out, we’re in our own place, and things are starting to get better. I will say that the “hiatus” is off, but I am not giving myself a schedule for now. I still work a full time job and I still don’t have nearly as much time to do everything that I would like, but things are happening slowly.

2. TNTC revamp?

Okay, yes, I am going to be “revamping” Celine. When I originally wrote that book, I was in a hurry to publish and get my name out there. Celine is much shorter than I wanted it to be, and when/ if you move on to Jeremy, the flow doesn’t match. After I published Jeremy, I felt that Celine was a disservice to my readers. I want to apologize for that. I have sort of started work on it, but I have signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo and so I will be working on the rewrite first draft in April. This means that I am going to have to hold off on starting Book Three: Texas until Celine is where I want it to be. I can’t promise that I’ll have everything ready to go and republished early enough to publish Book Three this year, but don’t lose faith, I am writing.

3. Already purchased Celine and don’t want to spend more money?

Not to worry. I am actually going to be uploading the changes directly to the original ASIN. This means that if you already own a copy on your Kindle, then you will automatically get the new version. You do have to be connected to the internet on your device to receive the update, of course. If you’ve published a hard copy and want a new one, forward your receipt along with your address to authormaeganprovan@gmail.com. I know how many copies were sold, so I know how many to send out, I just don’t know who to send them to. This also goes for those who purchased a copy on Smashwords and Barnes & Noble. I have made the digital version of Celine a Kindle exclusive (for now) so you won’t be able to get the update. However, if you forward me your receipt and the format you need, I can get them sent out.

4. What about Becoming Silas and Becoming Jeremy?

Yes, the Becoming Night Touched mini series is incomplete right now, but it will be soon. Silas’s short is almost finished but I really want to spend my free time focusing on the changes/ additions that I want to make to Celine. That doesn’t mean that I have completely ignored my characters in any way. If anything, I am doing them justice by taking Celine to a whole new level.

 

So there you have it. Those are the top 4 questions that I felt needed to be answered. I hope that I provided some insight into everything that’s going on. I appreciate your support more than you know. Don’t forget to follow this blog; I am trying to update more often. There is also the Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy tour coming at the end of May, so watch out for that. Thanks everyone!!

About Maegan Provan

I am an indie author and proud of it. I try to update as much as humanly possible, but I'm a busy bee.

  1. This all sounds very exciting. I don’t think you anyone an apology for taking your time to publish. As a reader, I appreciate that you are taking the time to make your series the best it can be. I think Celine is an excellent book, but I can understand how your concept for the book and characters can change as the series progresses and as you grow as a writer. Again, I appreciate your willingness to revamp your book to give the readers the best experience possible. I also think it’s really cool that you’ve given us this update because it makes readers feel like we’re a part of your writing process.

    I’m glad things are settling down for you and that you’ve got your creative groove back. I’m sure we’ll be seeing wonderful things from you and your series.And, since good things are worth waiting for, take all the time you need.

  2. What Tricia said :p yeah. I’m a copycat like that!

    Seriously though, looking forward to all o fit, but take your time, rushing just produces stress which i think shows through in the work (like the last Harry Potter book for instance)
