Publication Announcement: Novella – Waiting For Daybreak – Second Edition

Image of a digital book cover. The silhouette of a woman and a cat sit in front of a sunrise. Red blood splatters across the title.

I am thrilled to announce the publication of the second edition of my novella Waiting For Daybreak. I published the first edition 10 years ago in 2012. I have completed major updates throughout the second edition, as well as added an author’s note and a content note. You can view both of the notes in their entirety by using the preview book feature on its Amazon page.

Here is the updated blurb:

I just want to live like normal people. But my Borderline Personality Disorder fills each day with emotional pain. And drives other people away. Not that there’s anyone to drive away anymore…

Frieda’s a struggling twenty-something young professional when the apocalypse comes. Overnight, Boston falls apart as a rapidly spreading virus makes her neighbors crave brains. Enough to kill for them.

She survives alone for a whole year in her urban studio apartment. And she surprises herself by managing her mental illness better than she did before. When her beloved cat becomes ill, Frieda goes on a quest to save her. It sets off a chain of events that challenges everything.

Reviews of the first edition call this a “dynamic” read that’s a “great story with a twist I didn’t foresee.” This places a character you’d expect in a women’s fiction novel at the heart of a zombie apocalypse.

Today and tomorrow (July 21st-22nd, 2022, Pacific Time), the ebook is free for everyone. Please consider downloading your copy today!

If you previously purchased the first edition, note that Amazon does not automatically send the second edition to your kindle. Please take advantage of these two free days to get the updated version. If you missed the free days, you can sign up for my newsletter to get notified of future ones. I hold them periodically.

Please be sure to check out my Publications Page for my other work.

    Congratulations! I tried to get the second edition today (July 22) and Amazon says free but when I ordered it, Amazon told me I had already purchased it in February 2021 and just keeps asking me do I want to read the copy I already own!?! Your post says today and tomorrow (July 21-22) but also July 19-20, but I don’t think that has anything to do with it. Just wanted to let you know that apparently Amazon doesn’t recognize the two editions as different, apparently!
    Congratulations again!

      Hi Laurie – Oh no! From what I read you should have been able to download the updated version but I couldn’t test it myself of course so I’m not too surprised it’s giving you a hiccup. If you email me at opinionsofawolf [at] gmail [dot] com, I’m happy to send you the updated version as an epub. Thank you for your support ❤
