Just two months after the release of the paperback version of Book 3, Amanda Cadabra and The Flawless Plan, I am delighted to announce the expected publication of the new sequel in the Amanda Cadabra Cozy Paranormal Mysteries Series, Book 4, this month. It is now in the editing stages. We will have a cover design by our talented new illustrator, Daniel Becerril Ureña, who has just completed an updated jacket for Book 1, soon to be aired on Amazon. The feedback so far has been excellent.
Over the coming days and weeks leading up to Book 4 Launch Day, you will see here, a taste of the plot, the title reveal, a partial cover reveal, a full cover reveal, the date of the free day for Book 1, the pre-release video, notification of when the book goes on pre-order and the timing of the launch itself. Members of the Amanda Cadabra Latest News Group get all of this first by personal email, so if you’d like to join them, you’d be most welcome.
Phase 2 of the editing process is now in progress. Phase 4 is when the manuscript is read by my supremely gifted editor, Flora, and my treasured team of VIP advance readers. If you would like to join them inside the velvet rope and receive the book before it is published, in order to give your feedback, there is still time. It is a limited numbers group, but there are some spaces. Phase 5 is the last before the manuscript is loaded onto the Amazon launch pad, ready for lift-off. The countdown has begun!
Meanwhile, during breaks from the intense process of preparing the book, I have been learning Cornish. (Any Cornish speakers or students out there please, give me a wave on social media or by email. I’d love to hear from you.) It seemed only right, considering the series is so involved with that part of the world. The magical spell-language, Wicc’yeth that is used in Amanda’s world is formed from mixing Cornish and Old English, and there are several Cornish characters. In Book 4, I have the honour of including a Cornish poem kindly written for the book by Cornish Bard Mick Payter.
More news to follow shortly.
Oll an gwella (All the best), and happy reading,
Exciting times! Amanda Cadabra and The Cellar of Secrets, Book 2 in the Amanda Cadabra Cozy Paranormal Mysteries series, is now available on Amazon for pre-order prior to its launch on Sunday. And here for you is the full cover reveal of the Kindle edition (the full cover of the paperback is in preparation as I write). I hope to have the paperback ready for you soon after Sunday and will let you know.
Once again I wish to express my thanks to my illustrator Erik Patricio Lúa for his creation. The book has two new maps: (thanks to artist Methmeth) an expanded one of the village and an all new and especially charming one that I hope will both intrigue and assist you in your journey through the story.
Tomorrow will see the release of the trailer for Book 2, sequel to Amanda Cadabra and The Hidey-Hole Truth, here on amandacadabra.com and on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, YouTube, Goodreads and Amazon (author page).
Just three days till launch. Why the fever to release the paperback hot on the heels of the Kindle book? So I can ‘matchbook’ the two. What does this mean for you? It means that if you buy the paperback, as a gift, for example, you can get the ebook at a greatly reduced price. I want this to be ready for you for the holidays and the present buying season.
Trailer release tomorrow and news of another surprise, for Sunken Madley fans, in the pipeline.
