Why are there TWO versions of the same book?

Updated: Feb 6, 2023

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.
