As I'm sure some of you already heard via Instagram, I am no longer an author for the Polyethnic Publishing. I did not make this decision lightly, and hold great respect for Melissa and her team, however I felt like I had to make the best choice for this book series, and so I have decided to return to self publishing.
To be clear, I'm only talking about the Underworld Saga, which was being published by the Polyethnic Publishing, a small up-and-coming publishing company. Unfortunately, it just wasn't a good fit for me and my work, and I felt bad that I was always giving you guys the wrong information, or information about release dates that was initially accurate but changed at the drop of a hat. I think it's important for me to note that I hold no ill-will towards the Polyethnic, and will continue to support the company and its authors.
So, what does this mean for the Underworld, you might be asking? (Who are we kidding, all you care about is Hadrian and we all know it). Well, Melissa was kind enough to give me the cover rights to the original covers to book 1 and 2, HOWEVER, after carful consideration, I've decided to discontinue using them.
Yes, they GORGEOUS. And yes, I love them, and am aware that you love them as well. However, after the feedback for book 3's cover reveal, I've realized not having a completed set will be more annoying and disappointed to most of you than having to start fresh. Which is what I'm doing. All new covers for the first two books as well as book 3! Book 4 will also have a cover that matches this (which I'm putting together now so that I can guarantee that), so while they're different, it means everyone can have an actual matching set in the end!
Sounds good really, doesn't it? I think so. As a heads up, these covers are VERY DIFFERENT. Please keep that in mind, and while your comments and questions are and always will be welcome, please don't just throw shade telling me how much you hate them. By all means, if you're not a fan let me know (I'm not going to change them but hey), just don't tear them apart.
As a thank you for bearing with me throughout this whole process since last December, I'm unveiling the first three covers, RIGHT NOW:
Like I said, please feel free to ask questions or leave comments below! :) I'm happy to clear anything up!
What this does mean or the series is I have to wait for all of the old copies to be removed from distributers, so the release of book 3 might be more like November 10th. That's only a few days after the 2nd, which was the original date, and I've got something planned to make it up to you guys, so check back!
