Probably the biggest complaint I've received about Sunset of Furmankind has been its overall length. A "typical" novel is around 120,000-160,000 words, but this one tops out at over 330,000 words! So ... I am now in the process of splitting this story into two books. Nothing in the story will be altered and the break will be transparent where the online and ebook versions are concerned. It's only the books in print that will change with the story split up between separate books.
I have already commissioned Liz Jackson for a new cover to go with the second printed volume and once that has been completed, I will make new editions of the printed books available. Also, the subtitle of "Furmankind II" on the cover of Second Chance will change as well, since that will then become the third book in the series. This trilogy will become known as "The Chronicles of Furmankind" with Book 1, 2 or 3 on the cover over the actual book titles.
For those of you have already purchased print books of Sunset of Furmankind and Second Chance, there's no need to buy the new set (unless you just happen to want them). There will be no changes to the story itself on any of the volumes.
Fred Patten, Furry fandom's historian and reviewer has given his thoughts on the sequel to Sunset of Furmankind on the Dogpatch Press website.
