NEWS FLASH - Virtual Book Tour and A Big Announcement

Hi guys,

I promised there would be good news coming soon, and here it is.

On the 24th of this month, my Virtual Book Tour begins!

Run through Virtual Book Tour Cafe (, the tour is expected to run until the 20th of May.  With ten stops total, I am also giving away 5 copies overall, with the possibility of one giveaway per stop if the hosts deem fit.

Now that I've got the good news out of the way, the bad news is my schedule, which is as follows:

April 22 - Introduction at VBT Cafe' Blog
April 24 -
April 26 -
April 29 -
May 2 -
May 7 -
May 9 -
May 13 -
May 15 -
May 17 -
May 20 -

Empty, huh?  Don't worry, the schedule only came out a day ago, and should start filling very soon - will keep you posted on developments as they come, and look forward to reaching out to my potential audience!

Now that you know this, I have A Big Announcement:

Within the next four weeks, I will be releasing the second edition of The Torment, The Shadow, The Heart!

After some early critique, I took a long, hard look at my narrative and decided to improve it, clearing up descriptions and dialogue, removing most of the passive sentences and the "fluff" - the extraneous description I could do without.

What I ended up with is a book that, including the addition of the sample chapter from The Fear, The Sundering, The Journey, is 20 pages shorter than the initial release.

Following its release, my eBook exclusivity through Kindle Select ends on the 13th of May.  Get ready, because The Torment, The Shadow, The Heart will soon be available in more than just one format!

I'll keep you posted on all developments.  In the meantime, I'm going back to fixing The Fear, The Sundering, The Journey, ready for its intended October release.

Stay tuned!
T. M. Shannon.
