New Firekeeper E-Book Editions!

New Design!

One of the projects I’ve been working on over these past many months is putting together new editions of the Firekeeper e-books.  Through Wolf’s Eyes; Wolf’s Head, Wolf’s Heart; The Dragon of Despair; Wolf Captured; Wolf Hunting, and Wolf’s Blood are all now available in new editions for both mobi and epub formats from Amazon/Kindle; Nook; Kobo; i-Tunes, and GooglePlay.

The cover art is based on the classic paintings by Julie Bell, and feature stylish, updated cover design.  The interior design is also updated, including classy new chapter headings.

Each volume contains a short essay providing a peek at my behind-the-scenes choices as I wrote the Firekeeper Saga.   Otherwise, changes to the text have been restricted to the most minor.

At this point, I don’t plan to produce new print editions, but most of the novels remain available in hardcover through my website bookstore.

An advantage of putting these new e-book editions together was that the task provided me with an opportunity to re-saturate myself in the Firekeeper universe, because I went over each book many times.   It was a lot of fun to see how much Firekeeper and her associates changed in the course of the series.  What I liked most of all was how those changes made them truer to themselves, rather than strangers to the people I started falling in love with in Through Wolf’s Eyes.

My re-immersion in the Firekeeper universe has, in turn, made me very eager to return to writing Wolf’s Search – the forthcoming seventh Firekeeper novel.   I’ll talk more about that novel when I’m closer to being done, since I’ve never been very comfortable talking about a work in process.  All I’ll say at this point is that Wolf’s Search takes place within a year of the events in Wolf’s Blood, and that Firekeeper and Blind Seer are two of the main characters.  Anything else is between me and the muse.

Finally, for those of you who have been asking for new e-book editions of my other Tor novels, be assured that these will be forthcoming.  However, I need a break from being in editorial mode.  As I’ve noted elsewhere, it can really get in the way of writing.

    *taps mic*
    ATTENTION! All followers and lovers of Jane’s writing, please do not disturb her unnecessarily. She must be free to commune with her muse. THANK YOU!

    😂😂😂 I’m very excited to see what adventures Firekeeper and Blind Seer are having. My “announcement” is completely self-serving👍The news about the e-books is great too. Now, I shall follow the announcement and stop bothering you😆

    And for our next act, we’ll be performing that old Abbott and Costello favorite, Who’s On First😂😂💌

      You _do_ realise that when you tapped on the mike you blew no less than 8 speakers? We’re going to have to shut down the sound system until we can afford replacement; the rest of the performance is cancelled.

      Don’t do that again, ever!

    Awesome news! I love the Firekeeper Saga and have re-read my paperbacks series and my Kindle versions several times. As I am aging, I now use the Kindle app on my phone more often than the paperbacks. As I get even older, I sincerely HOPE that you may someday find a good reader who can produce synchronized Audible narration to go along with the Kindle book. You might prefer to use Kristine Hvam (Treecat Wars) or the skills of your multiple professional readers as you did with the Worlds of Honor books, if the “mind voice” of Blindseer should be more “male” sounding than Kristine can convey.
    Either way, I would love to log into and view my Kindle content and discover the little headphones on the Firekeeper Saga bookscovers indicating that Audible Narration had been added to the Kindle book so I could re-read the books using “Immersion reading” while the text gets auto-scrolled on the screen. And yes, I would gladly pay the extra fees to add the Audible narration to my already-owned Firekeeper books.
