New edition of Nights of Villjamur

For completists or those looking to start the series, there’s a new edition of Nights of Villjamur which will be published on the 25th of October. Look for the above cover art (I’m sure Amazon will have it updated soon). I also think that ebooks will be updated with the new version, so acquiring the new edition might vary depending on your chosen device. Let me know if you have any problems with that and I’ll chase it up.

There are about 200 minor alterations, all in all. Some of the more unusual words have been cut out and replaced. The occasional bad sentence has been removed. Swearing has been reduced. Ultimately, they’re to make for a smoother reading experience. It’s not a full re-edit by any means, but it’s certainly allowed me to get rid of the worst of those first-novel excesses.

  1. Thanks, Mark. I do wonder if, in this ebook world, if more authors are going to do partial edits of previous books some years down the line.

  2. I’m sure that’s more likely, though it depends on the publisher. A lot of changes and edits get made on the typeset file, not a Word document, so you’d need to get a copy of that actual file from the publisher if you wanted the most polished version to work from. Some publishers might not like that (and you’d also have to own the software to deal with it). So in theory, much more possible – though still a few obstacles in the way.

  3. Huh, that’s… quite interesting. I might have to get this at some point.

  4. If you ebooked it, you might be able to upgrade free.

  5. I got the original MMPB. eBooks is funny things.
