Unlocked Release Date

Unlocked Release Date

Posted by Maya Cross in Uncategorized

Well, after a lot of umming and ahhing, I’ve settled on a final release date for the final book in The Alpha Group. Unlocked will be coming to you on August 18th. I know this is a few weeks later than I initially indicated, and I know that sucks a lot, but as much as I want you all to have your copies ASAP, it’s for the best.

When I started writing this series, I made myself a promise I’d be as transparent as possible with you all. I know the structure is a bit unorthodox (long novellas with cliffhangers) which I’ve blogged about before, and I wanted to make sure everyone knew what they were getting into. That meant posting how many parts there were, their titles, and some projected release dates.

Unfortunately, to put it simply, I overestimated myself. I’m still very new to all of this, and I was just so keen to get the conclusion to everyone that I set myself a deadline that left me no wiggle room at all. In retrospect, two months between books was always verging on too ambitious. The second part of the series flowed out of me fairly easily, and if I’d been able to maintaing that pace I’d have been okay, but the third has been much tougher. There’s more elements to juggle and I’ve hit a few brick walls, and couple that with some personal issues that slowed me down, and it means I can’t quite hit the July date I wanted. I could try and rush it out the door, but you, me, and the story all deserve better than that.

I’m super sorry to let you down. I feel awful. I hate not being able to keep my word. Hopefully you can all forgive me. It’s only a few weeks extra! I will make it up to you with an awesome release day giveaway, and lots of teasers in the interim =)

    I know it will be worth the wait! Your stories are well worth it! I’ve already recommended your books to so many friends and family members, we’re probably going to have a “Locke” party!

    As much as I would like to have the 3rd book so that I can finish the story. I would rather you take your time and make it as great as the first two. Take your time any body who is hooked on you will be more than willing to wait. Good luck and best wishes.

    Thanks so much for your honesty from the beginning…so refreshing. I am definitely disappointed only because I love the series so much and can’t wait to continue the story. However, take your time…as others have posted…I’m absolutely certain it will be worth the wait. I might just have to take the release date off of work to read all day!

    Maya – Good things come to those who wait. I’m just glad the book will be released at all. I hate when people promise that something will be done and then back out all together. Take your time and make the book what you want it to be. Your readers, including this one, will be waiting eagerly.

    Well, I found you books actually by luck. But I really glad that I saw them and buy them. Im looking forward to read 3th book 🙂
    Oh, and by the way, Im from Czech Republic, its small country in middle of Europe. So your books are so good that even here I can read them!

    Please let one of the book releases be on Audible .com. I really enjoy listening to the books. Also it can be down loaded by many people at release date. It takes time to go to the book store.
