NEWS: Release, CORONA: Special Edition 03/04/2011
Austin, Texas: MJ Heiser, whose debut novel, Corona, was released February 2010 by Canonbridge LLC to exceptional reviews on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, has announced a Special Edition re-release of the novel through Phoenix House Press in cooperation with Literary Underground. Corona: Special Edition is now available for download on the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes and Noble Nook for the exceptional introductory price of $2.99.
In the world of fantasy fiction, much has been written regarding the ability to travel between this world and a fantasy realm, but the travelers are usually children. Corona is a re-imagining of this classic fairy tale; instead of children, for whom it is usually easy to adapt to the abrupt change, the journey between worlds is undertaken by full-grown adults who have lost their sense of wonder, either by loss of childhood fancies, by crushing disappointment, or by outright depravity. These three adults hold the survival of an entire world in their hands: Can they be the heroes they dreamed of being?
The Special Edition re-release includes a new prologue, expanded chapters, and a cleaner feel than the original book. A print version of this edition is in the planning stage now. Corona is the first book in the series, The Chronicles of Jaenrye. The sequel is scheduled for release in 2011.
