I've done this as I first wrote Max Bloom In... The Cornerstone a good three years ago now, and since that time I think I've become a better writer and better storyteller.
So much so that when I went back to look over the first book as I started writing the sequel, I noticed that it was... well, a bit shonky in some places, and needed looking over again.
Which I've now done... cutting extraneous paragraphs that don't push the story forward and generally tidying the whole narrative up so it flows better. The book is now about four thousand words shorter than it used to be, but really clips along at a much better rate now. It also fits in with the tone and pace of the sequel more than it did before the edit.
Obviously, if you've already bought Max Bloom In... The Cornerstone then there's no reason to get this new version of it, but if you haven't, you can be sure that you'd be buying the best version of the book there has ever been if you pick it up from now on :)
To celebrate the launch of Wordsmith, I'm going to be offering the new edit of Max Bloom In... The Cornerstone for FREE at Amazon all of this weekend, starting Saturday.
