Today I am “officially” relaunching my 2003 novel A Place Without a Postcard. It was first published through iUniverse and while the experience was a positive one, I wanted to re-publish it under my own Coyote Mercury Press.
The 2014 paperback version features a new cover, trim size, and layout but the story is the same. I corrected the typos that snuck into the original, cut a few unnecessary adverbs, and restructured some sentences for clarity. I’ve learned a lot about writing in the 11 years since Postcard was first published, and I wanted to apply some of that to the new version, which is more a remaster than a true 2nd edition.
I approached the work with a light hand, though, because I didn’t want to change the story or the characters in any way and so the post I put up nearly a year ago about the upcoming Kindle edition (which has now finally come up) still stands. After all these years, I am still happy with this book, and I hope others will be too.
One of the nice things about publishing through my own company is that I can control the price and so for today, I’ve got the paperback version on sale for $10.99 (usually $13.99) and the Kindle edition for $1.99 (usually $3.99) both through Amazon. Additionally, the Kindle version is free through Amazon’s Match Book program so if you ever bought the old paperback (thank you!) or if you buy the new one you should be able to download the Kindle version for free.
If you bought the book back in 2003 (or later), thank you again, and I hope you’ll let your friends know about the new edition, and if you haven’t read it, I hope you’ll check it out. Thank you.
