My 2020 novel Storm Warning is now available in
a revised edition from Amazon in ebook, paperback and KU. If you have already
purchased the previous version, then the new edition should automatically
update in your Kindle library.
So, what’s new and why?
Well, to make a long story short, the original version
did not go down quite how I planned. My intention was that Storm Warning
would be the first novel in a series set onboard the cruise ship Atlantic Star.
The first few books would be a set of loosely linked standalone romances that
would conclude in a final novel which would tie everything together. As the
first story, Storm Warning set up the format –a standalone love story between
two men, Jamie and Dexter, who meet on the ship. It’s pretty self-contained delivering
the happy ending the guys deserve. A short epilogue at the end of the book set
up the premise for the series and ended on a cliff-hanger.
And there lies the problem. To say the epilogue didn’t
go down well is putting it mildly. It was trashed. Reviewers who admitted they
liked the book, marked it down for those last few pages. It seemed like
everyone hated it. I should have made it clearer in the marketing that Storm
Warning was the first of series, but by then the damage was done. Though I
loved the book, the setting and the characters, the backlash cut deep, and I
lost all heart for the series.
I love Storm Warning. I knew soon after
publication, when I abandoned my plans for the series, that I would rework it into
a single title, but it’s taken a little time and distance before I felt able to
look at it again. Now that the disappointment of the original release has
subsided, I’m delighted to present it again in this new version.
For a limited time the ebook is available for just $0.99
