Happy Launch Day Everyone!!

Hello there, this is Anthony Avina. I wanted to let you guys know that my book, I Was An Evil Teenager: Remastered, is now live and available for
purchase! As I’m posting this is it midnight on Friday, October 20th, and the book is available in both paperback and eBook formats. You can
get the book on iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Amazon, Smashwords, Createspace and more! You can find the links in the preorder section on the
left side of this blog.

I wanted to thank those who have shown an interest in my book thus far. It’s already garnered it’s first 5-star review, and it means the world to
me that you guys are responding to it. This book is the collection of my first novella series, featuring the novellas “I Was A Teenage Killer”,
“I Was A Teenage Zombie” and “I Was A Teenage Demon”. I have not only combined these novellas into a novel, but I have completely reworked the
original manuscripts, polishing the writing itself and adding some fun and more relevant plot twists that I think you guys will enjoy.

This story follows a beautiful young teenager named Lisa Etron. The small North Carolina town of Willow Springs sees Lisa as the perfect example
of high school success. She’s a cheerleader, an A+ student, and treats everyone with respect and kindness. After securing a date with her best
friend Dave, Lisa appears to be on top of the world. What Dave and the rest of the town fails to realize is that Lisa is hiding a dark secret. A
secret that is both terrifying and deadly, and threatens to consume the town in chaos once unleashed. Providing a new face for terror, the novel
features scares, chills and the ultimate fight between good and evil. Can evil wear a pretty face? Can love win over hate? Find out in I Was An
Evil Teenager: Remastered!

I hope you guys will enjoy this novel. It’s perfect for the Halloween season, and is a throwback to the young and inexperienced author I was
over seven years ago when I first published this series. For anyone with a blog or an interest in reading this book, I have free electronic copies
of the book available in .mobi, PDF and ePub formats. I can send you a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review, so send me an email to
authoranthonyavina@gmail.com and I’d love to work with you. Thanks for your support everyone, and look out for more giveaways and announcements
in the future!

Why Should You Re-Release Old Books?

Time. 
Time has produced new innovations in the world of writing and publishing. In today’s world of publishing authors have more opportunities than ever to showcase their work without traversing through the process of traditional publishing houses. However as many self-published and traditionally published authors can agree, time allows us all to learn from our mistakes and improve ourselves and our writing. With self-publishing it is easier now than ever before to improve on our previous work.
In a month and a half, I will be releasing I Was An Evil Teenager: Remastered. This is a three novella series telling the story of Lisa Etron, a seemingly innocent teenage girl with a dark persona bubbling just beneath the surface. I originally published the first novella, I Was A Teenage Killer, in 2010. This story was fun to write, but as the years have gone on i recognize so many grammatical and story based errors that the time to fix it was here. Not only have i and my skills as a writer changed and improved, but the world has changed as well. Whether its our current political climate or the tragedies of our world reshaping our views or the wisdom and strength that comes with age, this book began to feel outdated and in need of serous improvements. So i went through all of the novellas and realized this would make a great remastered novel, and so i began to work.

In the end, i think this remastered book is stronger and more character driven then it ever was before. The themes are more prevalent and the show versus tell style of writing has helped me to improve how the story is conveyed. This is something all authors can do. Our experiences and our understanding of the world can reshape how we view the past, and with the innovation that is online self-publishing it is easier than ever to strengthen the works that came before. I highly encourage any author out there to take the time to reread their books and look to see if time has given them any new insights or views that can improve their work. I hope you guys enjoyed my brief viewpoints on re-releases and book publishing. If you guys want to check out my work for free be sure to sign up for my free newsletter here on my blog, and if you guys are interested in seeing what a remastered book looks like then be sure to preorder your copies of I Was An Evil Teenager: Remastered today on Amazon and soon to be available on iBooks, Barnes & Noble and more!
