Hi Jasmine,

Thank you for asking!

The new cover (and that is all it is) I had created so it matches the style of the new cover for Book 2, Bases & Lairs. I used a different illustrator for Book 2 as my niece (who made the first cover) was not able to do the second.

I need to fix how it displays, but Goodreads is not set up writer friendly when it comes to making changes to the covers of published books. I'm still trying to sort out how to show they are the same book and present both covers together. Goodreads does not allow you to replace a cover and if you have an updated cover you want to show, they make you set up an entirely new "version" of the book and it displays as a separate book.

Bases & Lairs is in editing. I have had a personal issue that has set me back a few months. I expect to have it published within the next few months and do apologize I did not keep to my publishing schedule.


On a positive note, I'm very excited about Bases & Lairs and believe you will find it an even better read that Heroes & Villains.


Take care,
Scott

Read the 5 star reviews and you will see most of them were before the book was released (and the reviewer only read the first chapter). Read the 1-2 star reviews and you will see those people read the book (suffering much pain in the process).

“Villain telepaths are no more dangerous than villains of every other stripe; they just have a different way of operating. Instead of hiring henchmen, they control their minds. Instead of beating you into a pulp, they turn your brain into mush. Instead of monologues about how ingenious their plans are, they just put it in your mind how brilliant they are.”
Scott Olen Reid, Nova Academy: Heroes & Villains

“Carly more or less does a controlled fall with one hand on the rope, using it to slow her fall, and lands in a three point superhero landing like a pro. I follow right behind and am about to land on top of her when she rolls away just in time for me to land only slightly better than a toddler jumping off a bed.”
