So as you know, my new book, NOCTE released yesterday. I’m SO LOVING all of the awesome things that you guys are saying! Your reviews are AWESOME and I’ve been reading every one of them. Thank you!!
I have been getting quite a few questions about NOCTE, though. And several bloggers have been approached with them, too. So, I thought I’d make a convenient list of the questions we’re hearing.
Q: I am using a Kindle to read NOCTE, and at various places in the book, there’s an image of a camera. Is there supposed to be a picture there?
A: Yes. We embedded some cool symbols into Finn’s journals. Some readers are seeing the symbols, and some can”t for some reason. These symbols are NOT integral to the story- they are just a detail that I thought was cool. In fact, here they are:
Q: Will NOCTE be on sale soon (for $.99)?
A: No, it won’t. You don’t have to worry that you’re going to buy it today for $3.99 and then tomorrow it will be on sale for $.99. We have no sales planned for this book for the foreseeable time.
Q: I bought the Nook version through Barnes and Noble and the formatting looks wonky… there are weird spaces and strange indents.
A: We’re looking into this. The file uploaded onto B&N was perfectly formatted. It appears that somehow during the file conversion process, something went awry. We’ve got a help ticket into B&N right now, and hopefully they can help get this straightened out.
Q: I’ve heard there’s a cliff-hanger. Is it a bad one?
A: The issues that drive the storyline of NOCTE are resolved by the end of the book. At the end of the book, another question is posed that will be answered in book two, VERUM.
Q: Ugh, I hate the idea of a series right now! I wish it was a standalone. How many books will be in the series?
A: I’m sorry if you’re against a series right now. Lol. Some people prefer stand-alones, and some people actually like series because they get to become very invested in the characters. When I first started writing NOCTE, it was actually only going to be one book. But as I continued writing it, it became clear that there was too much to the story to contain in just one book. There will be three books, NOCTE, VERUM and LUX. You can learn more about them here.
Q: What do those titles mean?
A: NOCTE means “by night” in Latin. VERUM means “true” or “the truth”, and LUX means “light”.
Q: What is Dare’s question?????
A. I can’t tell you that. Yet. Stay tuned for VERUM.
I think that about does it! But I’ll update this list as needed.
I hope you’re all loving NOCTE! In case you haven’t downloaded it yet, here are the links:
