So, here we are, five days after the release of book-two of Extinction Point ( better late than never, right? for those of you who have been with me since I first self-published this story), and what a phenomenal five days it has been. Exodus has been in the UK Top 100 from day two, and in the top 200 here in the US almost from release. I wanted to thank you all so very much for your support. I am quite honestly speechless at the amount of emails, blog posts, and tweets I have received from you, and I’ve spent the past few days trying to answer everybody who has contacted me directly. I think I’ve caught up, but if I’ve missed you, you have my apologies.
I wanted to highlight a few of the major questions that you asked, right here, but if I miss anything, please feel free to let me know and I will address it as best I can. So, without further ado, here we go:
1) Are there going to be any more books in the Extinction Point series?
Absolutely. I am currently finishing up the third book in the EP series. I had always planned on Extinction Point being a minimum of three books, and that has panned out pretty well. This third book will answer all of the questions posed in the previous two books and will, more importantly, answer a lot, if not all of your questions. I had always planned on the series being a trilogy, but as I near the end of this third book, I find myself thinking about a potential fourth book. Book three WILL conclude Emily’s story, but this newly created, alien-possessed Earth may well open up a whole new story line. I’ll let you know.
2) So, what’s this new book called?
In keeping with the biblical references started with Exodus, book-three is tentatively titled Extinction Point: Revelations, for pretty obvious reasons (see question 1)
3) When will the third book be released?
My publisher, 47North (who incidentally publish many fine books from former self-published and conventionally published authors. Here’s a link ), have a planned release date of January 2014. That is currently up in the air as I have to finish writing the book, but as soon as I know the date-certain for release, I will post it here, on Facebook, and email all of my subscribers.
4) What can I read by you in the meantime?
For some reason, my self-published novels don’t seem to be showing up under the name of Paul Antony Jones on Amazon. But you can find my first book Toward Yesterday right HERE if you’re in the US, and HERE for the UK. Dangerous Places, a collection of three short stories and extended samples of Extinction Point and Toward yesterday, can be found HERE for the US and HERE for the UK.
Did I miss anything? Feel free to post here and I will answer any questions you have.
Once again, thank you all so much for your support.
