Greetings From Limbo!: Revision Schedule and Book 4 Updates
Over the next few months or so you'll see a few changes around here as the d-VOR-ak website fully comes back to life. These changes will be slow, as most changes are. I want to give you a heads up as to what you're seeing:
First off, the Arc Summaries page will be simplified and will have links to each individual book, instead of massive information on one page. The old book covers will be used for navigation, with placeholders for the new books. The More Information page will see some general updates as well. This should make the website much easier for newcomers and those on mobile to navigate.
Since the page update will have a new link for every book from Classic to the final one in the series, fans will be able to anticipate all eight books (the four out now, and the four that have yet to be released). In addition to this, Classic will be included in the numbering for the first time, with The Dealey Five being #2, and so on.
Second off, there will be a new printing of all Dvorak books. The books will have interior updates as well as content trim -- none of the plot will drastically change, and I hope to still include the feel of a weekly serial in novel format. The trims will be for general inconsistencies and wordiness, clarity, anything that will make a more enjoyable reading experience. The first book to undergo this will be Classic, with a release date as of yet unannounced. (In case you're wondering, I've made promises before and this time, I intend to keep them. Not keeping dates as of yet enables me to work at my own pace to ensure we see this through all the way to the end.)
If you haven't noticed up until this point, The White Rose of Fiorazzurro has finally been finished to completion. This means you can read all 4 current books of the Dvorak series in order on this website, or on Wattpad if you prefer.
Thirdly on top of that, Book 5 -- the "Book 4" we've always spoken about me writing someday -- will finally come out next year. The trick is it's not written yet, and while we're doing things slightly different, we're going back to our roots. I've got a basic plot, but I want your help.
The Dvorak Book 5 Suggestion Box is now open until October 15th. You can submit ANYTHING you want, and I've got to try to find a way to fit it into book 5. Submitting before the date will give me a chance to collect the submissions and put them together, which in turn increases the chances of book 5 actually being done. It's not only that I really want this book to be written, but I'm excited about it, and the rest of the survival strategies coming our way.
Thanks for your patience. Enjoy the end of Fiorazzurro, and keep an eye out for more news in the New Year.
