Delay of a month for Bite Back 6

Month delay for Bite Back 6…

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, there’s going to be a delay in the release of Inside Straight. I had intended to load the Amazon servers with the pre-order on the 16th (next Monday), for publication on the 30th, but that’s not going to be possible.

The text is still in editing and the covers (plural) aren’t ready.

My marketing plan was to boost the series with new, professionally-created covers and a bundle (several ebooks in one at a discount) and an advertising campaign while Inside Straight was in pre-order, so that book 6 got the maximum amount of publicity.

That’s still the plan, but I am now aiming for release on the 31st October, with the pre-order and advertising beginning on the 14th.

I am also scheduling a series of previews of the new covers on Facebook and here, which will serve as a countdown to the marketing.

My apologies for the delay!

About Mark Henwick

I was born in Africa and left out in the sun too often. An early interest in philosophy and psychology was adequately exorcised by tending bars. And while trying to enroll in a class to read Science Fiction full time, I ended up taking an engineering degree which splendidly qualified me to move into marketing. That in turn spawned a late onset career in creative writing. When not working, I get high by the slightly less conventional means of a small light aircraft. My first books are available on Amazon at

    No worries, we all know life happens and not always at our convenience. Thanks for the update – it’s good to know what’s going. As ALWAYS, I’m looking forward to the next book. Have a great weekend.

    I realize this is a bit early to ask but what is the next book you will work on.

      I’m already working on Bian’s Tale 2 (The Words of the Dead) while Bite Back 6 (Inside Straight) is at the editor. Once those two are done, then I’ll be working on Bite Back 7.

      At the moment, I’m going to do everything to get the two major series published with shorter intervals. Unfortunately, that means Among the Stars is relegated to the back burner at the moment.

    I was curious if we might see what happens when two adepts fight with their powers in this book. I know we see it about to happen in the third book with mary and that other guy at her house when she is trying have amber meet them and the guy comes close to attacking amber and mary gets ready to defend her. So I am curious if we will see what actually happens in this book when adepts fight eachother.
