One of the things I love about self-publishing is the control it affords me. I make all the calls (and thus all the mistakes) and there are very few barriers between me and the work. If a reader finds a typo, I can have it fixed by the end of the day. Need to update the back matter? No problem. Want to completely overhaul the inadequate maps I drew myself? Well, that part takes a little longer.
It wasn’t long after The Fey Man was published that I realised my maps weren’t up to scratch. They had a certain rough charm to them, but I’m no artist. So I turned to someone who’s an actual artist, Howard Coates, who created some incredible maps.
Glorious, aren’t they?
Ebook owners can update their copies with the new maps:
Kindle readers should go to Manage Your Content and Devices. Over the next few days, Amazon should be making a “Update Available” button available next to The Fey Man;
iBookstore readers can go to the Purchased tab in iBooks and tap Update next to The Fey Man;
Kobo unfortunately doesn’t offer an update process, but contact me directly and I can provide you with a copy;
Nook readers need to archive their copy of The Fey Man and download it again.
Paperback owners, there’s no update process for you, but you now own a first edition; if we’re all very lucky, they’ll be valuable someday!
Whether you bought an ebook or a paperback, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you. It’s always easy to pass on a new author and I appreciate everyone who was willing to give The Fey Man a chance. And if you left a review, I’d like to offer an even bigger thank you! Contact me with a link to your review and I’ll send you a special and exclusive token of my appreciation (more on this soon)!
Self-publishing gives me both creative freedoms and freedoms to correct. Even though the text hasn’t changed, I’m thrilled to have these new maps in The Fey Man.
And if you haven’t picked up a copy of The Fey Man? Well it’s on sale over the Christmas period for just 0.99. Pick up a copy with some beautiful new maps from Amazon US | Amazon UK | Apple iBookstore | Kobo | Nook | Smashwords
Right, back to the desk. The Unquiet Sword doesn’t write itself.
