The Perihelix withdrawn pending a second edition

The Read to Review programme from Goodreads' Space Opera group generated further detailed feedback which has resulted in removing The Perihelix from sale with immediate effect.

Jemima intends to revise the book, putting it through all the editing processes as usual, and bring it back out later in the year.

If you bought an ebook version, you should be able to upload the second edition free of change, unless she makes so many changes that a new title and ISBN is the preferred route.  If that happens, we will make vouchers available to our early purchasers via the Viridian Series newsletter.  So sign up to get the latest news.

And at that point - we discover that the Viridian Series website's mailing list is down.  Please use the email follow button and we'll let you know when the newsletter sign up is back online.

May update

We have a lot of action on at present:

Princelings of the East

For the Princelings series, Jemima is returning to the seventh book, which had 'about a third' drafted last year.  She reckons she has to outline the last book in order to complete the seventh, and since she never outlines, she's been putting it off!
The paperbacks continue to be available at the Book Depository and other stores, as well as the ebooks online at Amazon, Apple, B&N, and Smashwords.
Bravo Victor is our May Goodreads Giveaway.  If you're a Goodreads Member, do enter for a chance of winning one paperback copy, sent anywhere in the world.

We also have a giveaway for Children's Book Week, running until May 8th.

Viridian System

Jemima completed the first draft of Book 2 at Camp NaNoWriMo, and (not unusually) couldn't let go so wrote an opening to Book 3 as well!  She's letting it fester for a but before returning to edit it.  You can read more about this, and her thoughts on the title, on the Viridian System website.

We are offering 10 copies of the ebook to members of the Space Opera Fans group on Goodreads in their Read to Review programme.  If you are not a Space Opera Fan member, then leave a comment below if you're willing to commit to a review on your blog and at least one buying site (including Goodreads) by the end of September 2016.

BookElves

The BookElves are considering whether to do a third volume this autumn.  The general consensus appears to be that everyone is willing to contribute, but nobody has much time to put it together and promote it.  Since Jemima aims to get one book out this autumn, we think Volume 3 will probably be postponed for one year, but  no firm decision has been made.

White Water Landings

We are considering changing the version that is available in print. At present there is a Createspace paperback, and the Blurb-produced souvenir hardcover with spot colour.  Given the time problems we have in receiving our own copies from Createspace (due to shipping and customs etc, it usually takes two month for a consignment of books to reach us here in the UK) we produced an edition with minor amendments through Blurb - meaning to do the paperback, but a new hardback edition was produced as well.  These are currently only available through the Blurb store.  We may swap those over so the Blurb edition becomes the internationally available  hardcover and paperback, and leave the Createspace paperback and Blurb colour version available in the respective online stores.  You would then be able to order those versions via this site (and the White Water Landings website) if you preferred.  It might affect prices too - probably reducing the cover price to you.
