5 Stars Third Debt was just mind-boggling and blowing. I mean, what can't NOT happen? Pepper Winters just seems to go there right when and where you don't expect it to. --Kawehi Reviews
5 Stars I am just beyond amazed on how good this book was. Hell..the whole series is just amazeballs and if you haven't read them, you are so missing out!! Missing out on such an original storyline, beautiful distinctive characters, and I am just so completely enthralled by Pepper. --Mommy is a Book Whore
5 Stars Pepper never fails to put my emotions right on edge... Verging from love/hate happiness/heartbreak, tears of laughter/sadness.., she does it again... Keeps me on the edge of my seat from first page to the last! 5stars just don't give it justice... My reviews don't give it justice but once you have read it you will understand why I find it difficult to articulate myself well other than OMFG!! --Tamsin, Goodreads
PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING FOURTH DEBT
I'll make this post while ducking for cover. Previously, I'd said Fourth Debt would be releasing around May / June. I'm going to be completely transparent here, so you can understand the predicament I'm in:
Back in July last year, I signed a publishing deal with Hachette to release two books traditionally. This deal meant larger exposure for my work in bookstores and paperbacks, the chance to work with large company editors, and to sample the other side of publishing. I can honestly say I love dealing with the amazing people at Hachette and am very lucky to be able to release both traditionally and self-publish. However, going traditional does mean I am bound to certain clauses and signed a contract agreeing to a non-compete term. What that means is I must work with my publisher to decide on release dates for my self-publishing titles so as not to cause averse affects on my traditionally published work. Normally, they require six months either side (which for someone like me who releases every 2-3 months is suicide.) Luckily, Hachette understood this and have been very flexible with me. We have recently been in discussions about Fourth Debt's release and have come up with the following solution:
THE GOOD NEWS
Grand Central (Hachette) will be releasing Ruin & Rule from me in July. Originally, this book was due out on the 28th July. However, because I'm doing a two month long signing tour starting on the 6th July, they've been beyond amazing and brought the release forward to coincide with signing events so the book is available to everyone on those dates. So, Ruin & Rule is almost a month early and releasing on the 7th July 2015.
THE NOT SO GOOD NEWS
Unfortunately, with good news comes the bad. Because this is a new book from me, Grand Central have asked me to give a few weeks break between my releases, which means my original intention to release Fourth Debt in June is no longer permitted (as it's too soon to Ruin & Rule's release in early July) I was told to release Fourth Debt early to mid May, which was an insane task as these books are long of over 70,000 words or more. (Third Debt is 100,000 words). Not to mention I've been sick for the past two weeks and general lifeness which means I'm behind. If I couldn't make early May, my next alternative was late September, which is too far away. We have since been in talks about a new date and have come to a conclusion:
Fourth Debt has had to be rescheduled. I don't like it just as much as you, HOWEVER, I have been able to create the pre-order links NOW on ALL platforms, so at least you can pre-order and forget until it shows up on your device. And in the meantime, Ruin & Rule has been brought forward to ensure there is only a few weeks between my releases, just like normal.
THE NEW RELEASE DATE FOR FOURTH DEBT (Indebted #5) IS:
I know it feels as if Fourth Debt is ages away, but the good news is Ruin & Rule is only nine weeks from being on bookshelves as well as on ebook. You'll be able to spot the cover in Wallmart, Target, and other retailers very soon!
I can't thank you all enough for loving the Indebted Series so much and for supporting my crazy stories. The great news is Final Debt will still be released on its approximate date, so the last two books in the Indebted Series won't be far apart.
