The Third Edition of Waiting for Regina Released As ePub

The editing and re-editing the novel Waiting for Regina has been completed. However, it is no longer the second edition because there were changes made to avoid any plagiarism, (although it was all unintentional). Also, in honoring the previous reviews of the book, this recent revision excludes every possible grammar and spelling error existing. These were searched out word by word, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph, chapter by chapter. Waiting for Regina is an essential story which should not be tripped up by these faults. 
Some present tense verbs and adverbs were changed to past tense to respect the high standards of American English language. Also, the overall publication was made more concise including the removal of any dangling modifications, incomplete statements, and unnecessary expressions. To add to this, I checked for and subtracted out any politically incorrect statements. For example, the word 'mankind' was exchanged for words as humankind, people, and humanity.

As an enhancement, the vocabulary was increased throughout the publication. Mispha is the narrator; she is known to be a proficient reader who loves books. Of course, she would use some statements uncommon to literary laypersons but are learnable by the public. In the first and second editions, for example, there are scenes when the main character Mispha is looking directly, eye to eye to the person she is addressing. However, since her feelings and relationship toward each vary, she does not look at them the same way while conversing. Whatever it is conscious or sub-conscious, the new edition of the novel reveals such personal distinction with a variation of wording. 
     The updated ePub (ebook) is available now on Barnes and Noble's online store. By Sunday, June 18 the revised Kindle version will be on sale on Amazon. Please feel at ease to read the free book previews online at B&N and Amazon and share the news with others. To help recognize the third edition from the previous one, there is a new chapter in it entitled 'Other Books by the Author.' If you have any questions, please post them here, I will do my best to respond. Currently, there is a limited distribution of the electronic copies of the book with fewer website retailers. The edited print versions are not ready yet; these will by announced shortly.
