Back in December, the demand for The Fiddler’s Gun was a lot bigger than I expected and the book sold out completely right as Fiddler’s Green was hitting the bookshelves. That’s a good problem to have, but it’s difficult to sell the second book in a series when the first is no longer available. Yikes! So for the past couple of months I’ve been scrambling to get an improved second edition off to the printer. Good news! The books came in today and they’ve now been shipped out to the distributor. If you ordered from the Rabbit Room store, your book is already in the mail.
So the question everyone has been asking is this: “What’s new in the second edition?”
1. The book has been put through another round of edits to clean up some pesky typos, rewrite a few scenes (subtly), and provide a better reading experience. These changes will be invisible to most folks who have already read the book.
2. The cover design has been tweaked and finessed so that it now matches the quality of the Fiddler’s Green cover.
3. The letters and log entries formerly available only in The Fiddler’s Gun: Letters have now been added as an appendix. This amounts to about 70 pages of extra content that sheds additional light on the events and characters in The Fiddler’s Gun.
This edition is superior to the first in every way and I’m really happy with the way it turned out. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Thanks for reading.
