It’s done! Edition three of REFUGE is completed and available on Amazon Kindle as well as in paperback. It even has a bold new cover that reflects one of the revisions, the shape of the invader’s star-ships. But that’s only a minor point. I’ve fleshed out some earlier scenes that tended to be on the lean side, and adjusted the level of graphic malevolence, including less flesh, that brought me some (well-deserved) criticism. All of this resulted in the arc of the story being altered to accommodate how the revised climax goes down. It took me a bit of time, lots of effort, and much enjoyment. But, what the hey, writing is fun! And because it was so much fun, plus the fact that the original was not my best writing, and because the revision’s effects will carry through to RAVEN and further sequels, I also did a revision of RAVEN, although not so extensively.
So, if you have read REFUGE and were turned off, give Edition Three a look. If you haven’t read it, and if you like the genre and the type of story, please–jump right in. There’s a whole series waiting for you. RAVEN’s revision, Edition Four, is also now available on Kindle and paperback. The next sequel, titled WOLFEHAVEN is in the last phases (I hope) and should be out soon.
