Addressing Problems with PIG

Hello peeps,

Ever since the release of PIG, the novel I wrote with Craig Saunders, I’ve been hearing there’s something wrong with the book, that the writing is not up to to snuff, that it’s nowhere near as clean as my usual output. While no one has cited specific issues (such as quoting errors), complaints range from “clunky writing” to “loads of grammar issues”.

At first I thought this had to do with our choice of using British spellings over American ones, but the problem seems bigger than that. Craig and I worked on this book, together, over the course of two full years, but I was the last one to set eyes on the text before publication. There shouldn’t be issues of this magnitude. If there are, it’s completely unacceptable, and I apologize.

Unfortunately, I do not have time to work on this right now. I have other releases with deadlines pending, not to mention an upcoming book tour. Suffice it to say, I’m burning the candle at both ends while holding the entire fucking thing over a roaring campfire. On top of that, I’m supposed to be on vacation. I know, I know. Whine, whine, bitch, bitch, author man, whatcha gonna do about the problem?

I’m taking the book down until I find out what the fuck happened. If you purchased the book before August 11, 2017, please, be patient. I’ll fix this. I promise. Once the issues are weeded out, I will reupload the book and your Kindle copies should update automatically. If they don’t, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

Again, my sincerest apologies for this issue. I’m looking into it and will fix whatever requires fixing. You have my word. It just might be a while.

Book Tour Update and Life in General

Hello peeps. Long time no chat.

I regret to inform everyone that I’ve not been able to secure insurance for the driving part of my book tour. Simply put, this means I’ll have to cancel the smaller Edward Lorn meet and greets. This tour is technically not for the Lorn name, but I’d originally planned to drive to the bigger venues and stop for meet and greets with Lorn fans. Because I didn’t pass my physical, and due to the insanely high-dose painkillers I take on a daily basis, the insurance was denied. Basically, I’m too big of a liability, as you can imagine, driving and drugging is something that’s all-around frowned upon. So the bigger dates are still on in California and Texas, but all smaller stops have been canceled. Furthermore, I will only be in these cities for a few hours. Enough to touch down, sign some books, shake some hands, read some words, and dip right back out. You can expect Live video at these events, I’m sure.

My sincerest apologies for this. Trust me, no one is more bummed than I currently am. It’s affected my mood dramatically, which brings me too…

I need a vacation. Since I won’t be having one in September, as planned, I’m taking one now. Not sure what I’m going to do, but I’m going to be taking a breather from social media (Facebook and Twitter especially). I will be checking my emails once a day, first thing in the morning, and posting regularly on YouTube and Instagram, but I will not be interacting. I’ll be here in spirit though.

I appreciate every last one of you guys. One of these days, when my health is a little more stable, I’ll manage to get to your neck of the woods. Until then, we have Live video and whatnot.

Take care of each other,

E.
