After being released from a Toronto psych ward, Evie decides that her life needs a drastic change. Moving 500 kilometers east to stay with her aunt in Montreal, however, is not turning out as expected. Though she loves the city, she can’t outrun the problems that drove her to the edge in the first place.
Recovery might be a little easier if not for Micha. Handsome, kind, always willing to help Evie or cheer her on–and completely invisible to everyone else. He seems to think he’s some kind of guardian angel, and she might need one now that things have gone from bad to just plain weird.
It started with the spiders. Then the owls started following her. Ghosts, goddesses, and secret societies are just the icing on the cake. She’s going to need help from some very powerful friends if she wants to make it to her next birthday, but when one of those friends is the goddess of the underworld, her guardian angel might have to start working overtime.
That’s right, folks! Next Tuesday the re-release of the Spider’s Web will be available on Amazon. You know what that means, right? It’s time for another Q&A session!
This page has been updated to reflect post-release day changes.
Wait, I missed something. What do you mean, “re-release?” Isn’t this book already out?
The Spider’s Web was originally released in May of 2016 by Torquere Press. Since then, Torquere has folded and all the rights for my books (the text part, anyway) have reverted back to me. I’ve chosen to self publish The Spider’s Web, and the remainder of Evie’s books
How is this edition different from the first one?
Overall, there won’t be many differences the average reader will spot. I tweaked a little dialogue and tightened up the prose, but there are no changes to the story itself. The biggest change is the new cover.
Why is the cover different?
Torquere provided the cover art and promo graphics for the original edition, so they keep those rights. That means I can’t use them for the re-release. The new cover art was kindly provided by Ash K. Alexander, who is handling all the graphics for the Night Wars novels now that Missouri and I are self-publishing them. This is excellent, because now we have wrap around cover art (Torquere books had a black back cover), and we can put the volume number on the spine. It always drove me crazy that Torquere didn’t put series numbers on the spines of their books!
Also, Ash takes payment in knitwear, so she’s pretty much the only graphic designer that will fit into my budget. 🙂
Edit: At this time, the 1st edition through Torquere is still up on the Amazon website. PLEASE ORDER THE BLACK AND WHITE COVER. I will not receive any royalties for Torquere edition sold.
What formats will be available?
Going forward, all of my books will be available in ebook and paperback, through Amazon.com
Does it matter where I buy the book?
Because the Night Wars books are now self-published, the only place to find them is Amazon. It’s unfortunate, but they should be available world-wide, and there will no longer be a price or royalty difference.
Edit: Because the paperback is issued through Create Space, I was able to sign up for expanded distribution! This means you can also request a copy for your library, or at your local indie bookstore. I still get the best percentage if you order directly from Amazon, but please do support your local bookstore if you have one!
Why does the paperback say it’s book 6 in the Night Wars, but the ebook is Evie Cappelli book 1?
The short answer is I’m still learning the ins and outs of self publishing and didn’t know how to make them the same.
The longer answer is that The Spider’s Web is BOTH the 6th book in the Night Wars universe as started by Missouri Dalton, AND the first book in the Evie Cappelli Series. So, if you had all the books. You can read just the Evie books, or you can read all the Night Wars books.
Anything else I should know?
Since I no longer have the backing of a publisher, all of the promo work now falls to me. If you read my books and you enjoy them, it is a HUGE help if you could take a few minutes to rate and review them on Amazon or Goodreads (Goodreads is helpful, but Amazon is better). Review and word of mouth are super helpful!
If you have any other questions, just leave them below and I’ll be happy to answer them!
