Now Available - The Restorer-Expanded Edition

I'm delighted to share the brand new cover for the brand new The Restorer-Expanded Edition.

The new book has the full original text of The Restorer plus so much more.

Bonus Scenes:
Ever wondered why Mark built the attic room? Some of his thoughts and motives are explored in a bonus scene. Learn how Tristan really felt after achieving revenge. Get a peek into Tara's impressions of the strange visitor to Braide Wood. Live through Kendra's experience as she's called back to awareness. Delve into Nolan's life as he is drafted to travel with the Hazor army. Other bonus scenes give insights into a first-year Council delegate, Wade, Linette, and even Cameron.

Devotion Guide:
Have you been curious about how the story of Deborah in Judges inspired elements of the book? The new ten-part devotion guide digs into the parallels as well as other themes found in the novel. The guide provides scripture, places to journal, questions with which to interact, and prayers.

Special Features:
New musical score for one of the songs, audio files, and links to recipes and other fun bonuses.

Last winter I spent many months developing all the extras for this book. It was a labor of love for the readers who have appreciated the Sword of Lyric series. I've completed and turned in all the bonus material for The Restorer's Son, which will also release with Marcher Lord Press, and am beginning work on the expanded edition of The Restorer's Journey next. Hooray!

Let me know what you think of the new cover. I was skyping with my daughter when the file came through and whooped and hollered with excitement. :-) I think they did a great job.

Beautiful!! I've already pre-ordered. Did Kirk at Dog Eared Design do this one too?

Brenda Anderson said...

Congratulations Sharon! I'm thrilled for you. I can't wait to get my new copy.

Love the cover. It tells a story in itself.

That's really cool! Glad I have my pre-order in already. :)

Sharon Hinck said...

Thanks, guys! Yes, C.J., Kirk did the original (which I also loved) and now this new cover. He is a GENIUS!

God has challenged me to trust Him more deeply through the process of working on this, and He continues to surprise and delight me in so many ways.

Sharon Hinck said...

Wow! I'm so impressed by those of you who pre-ordered before it even had a cover!!! You've got a lot of faith. :-)

The expanded editions of these books look great! I usually don't buy expanded novels after I've purchased the originals, but I'm definitely getting these. :) I also just received your newsletter and saw that you're working on the next book. I had no idea there was going to be a fourth book! I'm so excited!

Sharon Hinck said...

Thanks, Jessica!
I really wanted to create enough new material that it would be worthwhile for folks who own the original to invest in this new version...AND keep the integrity of the original story for those who have yet to discover it.

Yes, I'm making way-too-slow incremental progress on Book 4 and hope to accelerate that work in the coming months. :-)

I love it! It's way better than the first cover. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

Michelle, you are too funny.
I liked the original, but this new one is even better. New cover art, bonus scenes, added devotion guide, musical score for a new song, and other goodies... I'm getting excited to hold a copy!
