Re-release of HOW TO SAVE A LIFE now available & an update on book 2 in The Haven series

SP_HowToSaveALife_coverMd

A serious ex-cop and a klutzy younger reporter–who’s just accepting that he might be gay–form an unlikely alliance in HOW TO SAVE A LIFE (THE HAVEN BOOK 1) 

THE HAVEN BOOK 1

I’m pleased to share that the e-book re-release of HOW TO SAVE A LIFE is now available at Amazon, All Romance eBooks, and Smashwords. It’ll be coming to B&N, iTunes, and more stores soon. (It can take a couple of days to several weeks for the book to get approved at my distributor and listed at the various sites.)

This edition is the same as the original e-book version, with only a couple of minor corrections made to the text. It also has a different cover that matches the trade paperback edition.

THE HAVEN BOOK 2

I’m tentatively calling this one: HOW TO HEAL A LIFE. I have a high-level outline done for this story, and I’ve been adding notes to it as ideas come to me. Over the past couple of days I’ve added dialogue from several conversations between Seth and Vargas that I just love. I can’t wait to dig in and write this one. Right now I’m finishing up the rough draft of Matthew’s book (MORE Book 3, which also has a title: MORE THAN EVER). You can read more about my plans on my updated Works in Progress page.

Update on THE HAVEN and MORE series

I’m excited to share that I will be re-releasing a couple of my novels, MORE (More Book #1) and HOW TO SAVE A LIFE (The Haven Book #1), under my own self-publishing imprint Sloan Parker Press. The upcoming books in each series will also be published by Sloan Parker Press.

I have a fabulous team in place (beta readers, editors, designers, and more) to help bring you these books throughout 2015 and 2016. The publishing world has been changing rapidly for the past few years, and there are more opportunities for authors to have a say in the process than ever before. I’m thrilled to be able to do more self-publishing of my work.

Both MORE and HOW TO SAVE A LIFE will have new e-book covers, and minor corrections will be made to the text of each book.

HOW TO SAVE A LIFE will be re-released in January, and then MORE should be out not too long after that (the release dates for these and the sequel for MORE are based on when the rights revert back to me). There may be a few days where the e-book formats for these novels are not available for purchase at the various bookstores due to the transition of the books to my self-publishing imprint.

In any case, we’ll be getting all Sloan Parker books back up for sale as soon as possible. I’ll share a release date for the sequel to MORE (titled MORE THAN MOST) as soon as the details are worked out. But once MORE is re-released, the sequel should follow 2 months later. I can’t wait to share more of Luke, Richard, and Matthew with everyone!
