Why are there TWO versions of the same book?
Updated: Feb 6
The new version of An Uncommon Blue is way different from the original (inside and out.) What gives??
A brief explanation:
Publisher #1 refused to publish my sequel, The White Serpent (WS) because An Uncommon Blue (UB) didn't make enough money.
Then publisher #2 said they would publish WS. Later #2 said they'd also re-publish UB (so the covers would match.) But #2 had some problems with UB and had me change a bunch of stuff. Then #2 dropped both books due to changes in the company. (Their focus moved to picture books rather than YA novels.)
Good news: I got a couple sweet covers for free!
So... I published the 5th Anniversary edition and its sequel on my own.
Now that you have the whole story, go find me an agent that will get me a sweet nine-digit deal with Scholastic.
