It only took 2 1/2 years, but I've finally released Wilders, Book 2 of The Hope of Memory. It's now available in trade paperback and eBook formats.
The trade is through CreateSpace. It's available both through the CreateSpace site and Amazon (US and many of their international sites). Here are the US links:
CreateSpace - Trade Paperback | $11.99
Amazon US - Trade Paperback | $11.99
Amazon US - Kindle eBook | $2.99
For the Amazon version, I've enabled most of their features, because I can. The book has:
Matchbook = If you buy the Trade paperback, you can get the Kindle eBook for FREE
Kindle Lending Library = If you have Amazon Prime, you can borrow the eBook for FREE
Lending Enabled = You can lend your copy of the eBook to other users
KDP Select = Occasionally Amazon may offer the eBook for FREE for a limited time as part of a promotion
No DRM = I don't care about DRM anymore
The eBook is exclusive to Amazon for at least 90 days, to be able to use these features. If I get feedback that people would rather have the eBook in a non-Kindle format, I may switch it. But you can get the Kindle app on any phone or tablet now, so it's not like it isn't accessible to virtually everyone.
Yes, I know there are three books in a trilogy. I've been editing Rom Tar for about a month now, and it definitely won't take 2 1/2 years to release. Primarily because I don't need to write another book before this one is complete (I wrote Rom Tar before editing Wilders).
There are some sections I need to rewrite, but nothing major. I'm really looking forward to getting the third book out... writing a trilogy is harder than it seems. I'll have a preview of the cover up soon.
