Book Update: Lucky Moon Series
Hi, all! I keep getting questions about the status of Moonlight Becomes You (Lucky Moon #1), so I figured it was time for another update. Here is what I can tell you.
Moonlight Becomes You (second edition) is coming from Dreamspinner Press sometime in April. It will have new cover art and it will also be available as a paperback. The word count went from around 44K to around 60K. Some of this is new content, some of this are scenes from our free vignette collections (More Than Moonlight and Beyond Moonlight), but even some of those scenes have also been altered during our edits. The story has more Shane but now also includes scenes from both Jesse and Kayden’s perspectives. 🙂
Now, as you can probably guess, the re-release of MBY through Dreamspinner does mean that eventually the entire series will be available from them as well. The first edition of The Luckiest (Lucky Moon #2) is still available for purchase right now, but that will change at the end of next month. If you want to read The Luckiest in its current incarnation, it would be best to purchase it soon. Once it’s taken off the market next month, it won’t be available again until September/October of this year. But, as it stands now, I don’t foresee that particular story being dramatically altered. It will be going through edits again and we’ll be getting feedback from our new editors, so there might be some changes, but MJ and I were satisfied with The Luckiest overall and so I don’t think we’d want to make any really big changes. And as for Moonstruck (Lucky Moon #3), that one will be available for purchase until January 2015; however, the second edition of that one will probably go through some major revisions and additions. We anticipate it might end up around 60K like MBY did.
So, that’s the status for now! Any questions, you can email me or ask in the comments here, of course. 🙂 I just saw a draft of the new MBY cover today and it was pretty fab. I’m excited to share that one when I can.
