Big Holloway Pack Changes are a-happening!

I have some announcements to make regarding the Holloway Pack.

giphy

 Good ones!

 Ones I’ve been sitting on for a few months, since I first decided on going ahead with these changes, and I’ve been oh, so eager to share.

 And now I can share, so here goes. There’s more than one change, so be sure to read to the end. 😉

1.

 Darkness & Light is getting a new title

 From Monday March 27th, Darkness & Light will no longer be called Darkness & Light.

 From Monday, it will go by its new title of THE WOLF WITHIN

 It was a big decision whether or not to make this change, but after getting the opinion of others on it, I decided it could only do the book, and the series, more good than harm.

 Whilst I love Darkness & Light as a title, I’ve come to realise that it only actually makes sense in relation to the book once someone has read it. People who haven’t read my book(s) aren’t going to get it. So, I decided to give it a title that will leave the reader in little doubt as to what the book contains.

2.

 The Holloway Pack series is getting a new face

 Yep, you read that right. The entire series has had a makeover. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but couldn’t move forward with because a) I didn’t have the rights to some of the books until last summer, and b) I had no idea how I wanted them to look.

 Now I do know how I want them to look, and when I explained them to my regular cover lady, she ‘got’ it without argument. And it took only a few attempts for her to send me through an entire set of covers that made me happy.

 Actually, I’m more than happy with the new covers. I LOVE them.

The reveals for these will be happening next week, when one cover will be going live each day of the week, beginning with The Wolf Within on Monday.

 And I can’t WAIT for you guys to see.

And 3.

 The Holloway Pack is becoming a boxed set

This is also something I’ve wanted to do for a while, but that whole waiting on reverting rights issue I mentioned above …

 Anyway, very, very soon, the titles will be getting compiled to release as boxed sets as follows.

2017:

Boxed Set #1 containing The Wolf Within, Blue Moon and Caged

2018:

Boxed Set #2 containing Unnatural, Cornered and Burned (once Burned has released)

2019:

Boxed Set #3 containing books 1 – 6 of the Holloway Pack

At this point, the only title that won’t be a part of these boxed sets is the finale of the series. I’ll revisit whether or not to change that once the title is written and released.

 ~*~

So, there you have it. All the Holloway Pack changes.

Don’t forget to keep an eye out on Monday for the new The Wolf Within cover going live.

CAGED is Re-Available!

Good news, guys! Ethan Holloway is back on the market with the re-publication of CAGED.
And if you’re on KU, you can read it for FREE!
 
Publishers Weekly on CAGED:
 
“Solid, preternatural mythology, a nice sensibility of the weres’ canine natures, and stimulating sex scenes between Ethan and Shelley will help increase Belfield’s audience.” ~ Publishers Weekly
 
Blurb:
 
If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.caged-ebook-cover-2016
For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops, and the solution always reveals itself. Always.
Not this time.
Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.
What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.
If he survives.
Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself. Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.
 
AVAILABLE NOW!
 

Blue Moon (and Resonance) is Re-Available!

If you’ve read previous newsletters, or my blog, you’ll know the rights to all the Holloway Pack titles reverted back to me at the beginning of August, and I planned to get them all out there as soon as possible.
Well, real life massively got in the way of how much time I had to spend on this, as well as other work commitments, but … after WEEKS of trying to get at least one of the Holloway Pack books back out there, BLUE MOON is available again at last!

Granted, it’s currently only re-available in Kindle format, but it WILL be available in print real soon. I promise.

And what’s more. Blue Moon and Resonance are no longer two separate books.
Nope, they’ve been combined into the one, and what was once titled and published as Resonance is now the new ending to BLUE MOON.

So, if you fancy owning and Blue Moon and Resonance in a singular title, now’s your chance.

Go grab your copy today. ♥♥♥

What the hell’s happening with the Holloway Pack?

Okay, some of you have noticed that certain titles from the Holloway Pack series have become unavailable, so I figured it would be only fair to explain why.

On August 1st, I learned that my publisher had decided to close its doors, which meant that the rights to all of the Holloway Pack titles still published via them had reverted back to me. My contracts had expired. They were (are) all mine.

I’m both happy and sad about this.

Sad, because I learned a LOT under this publisher. And they were always incredibly supportive of me and what I wanted to write.

Happy, because I get more control over all my titles now.

However, it also meant(means) I suddenly had(have) a hella lot of work to do before these would(will) be ready for re-publishing myself. The covers need to be worked on. The files need to be checked over and formatted.

In case you’re wondering, there were three novels and three novellas and two short stories (one non-Holloway Pack) still published via my publisher.

That’s a LOT of formatting. And, because I’m anal, it will probably entail me reading through each and every single file to make sure all the formatting has gone through okay.

That’s a LOT of concentrated reading.

On top of that, I decided to make a few alterations to how some of the titles are made available. To ensure everyone knows the upcoming changes, I’ve simplified the changes and listed below what is and isn’t being affected to accommodate these changes.

DARKNESS & LIGHT

No changes here. Darkness & Light will still be available as itself as it currently stands, but with some minor changes to its cover.

BLUE MOON

This will be republished with NEW ADDED CONTENT at the end (see Resonance below).

RESONANCE

As a single title, this 2.5 novella will become obsolete. If you have a print copy, then … yay! It’s suddenly limited edition. 😉

Instead, I’ll be adding what was Resonance to the end of Blue Moon in both the print and ebook editions, giving the single title complete resolution with no need to buy an extra novella to find out how that chapter ends.

So, from republished date, Blue Moon and Resonance will be combined into one book and will remain titled BLUE MOON.

CAGED

No changes here. Caged will still be available as itself as it currently stands, but with some minor changes to its cover.

UNNATURAL

No changes here. Unnatural will still be available as itself as it currently stands, but with some minor changes to its cover.

CORNERED

No changes here. Cornered will still be available as itself as it currently stands, but with some minor changes to its cover.

HEREDITARY and ENTICED

No changes here. These two will still be available as they currently stand, but with some minor changes to the covers.

FATED ENCOUNTER

This will be available on my website as a free read … eventually.

INSTINCT & ETERNAL

These will no longer be published as two separate stories

These two titles will be combined into one ebook and also, for the first time ever, be made available in print. Both Instinct and Eternal will be displayed individually within the single book file, and the title of the new compilation will be BEGINNINGS.

tumblr_m1slkld6xp1qf2gl0

Over the following weeks, I’ll be working through each of the titles one at a time and making each of them re-available as soon as I’m physically able. They will be made re-available in the order they fall within the series. As each one is re-published, I will announce them here on the blog and also in my Newsletter, so anyone waiting on a title to become available again will know as and when they are.

I hope that helps clear up any speculation or mystery.

As for my short story, ESCORT TO INSANITY, which was published in the MAKE BELIEVE anthology, I’m still deciding what to do with that. There’s a good chance I’ll re-publish it as a novella, so long as I can decide on some coverart for it that works well and fits the story.

If any of you have read this fun shifter tale of mine and have any ideas for the kind of cover that would work for it, I’m happy to listen. Just email me at j.a.belfield72 @ gmail. com

In the meantime, just know I’m working my butt off here to put these back out there.

Cheers for stopping by to read. ☺☺☺

#CORNERED has a print cover!

Yep, it was never written in stone that Cornered would only be released in e-format. In fact, the only reason I made its release e-book only was so that, instead of stressing over print formatting and cover creating, I could offer up the time required for a successful release. Well, now that Cornered is well and truly out there, I finally had some spare minutes to play around with Photoshop, and I came up with something I reeeeeaaaally love for the full print cover of Cornered.

Wanna see?

Of course you do.

The Cornered print edition is going to look something like … this:

CORNERED_FULLCOVER1

You like?

I do. I love it.

As for a release date for Cornered in print, I don’t have a definite just yet, as I still have some ends to tie up, and then I have to await the arrival of proof copies, and be happy with said proof copies, and then approve said proof copies (and start all over again if I’m not) … all before I can say for definite when it will be available to you guys.

However, I am confident enough to tell you: it will be some time in July. ☺☺☺

Cheers for stopping by. ♥
