anticipated novel coming this fall, The Returned, which has been picked up by ABC as a new series called Resurrection

in this short story, The First.
As part of the exciting launch of the novella, Kindle has received an
exclusive letter to readers from the author, Jason Mott, which will be included
in each ebook.
Author Jason Mott is as excited as we are about
bringing his novella to Kindle, as he explains the inception of the novella:
“This story was born out of my novel, The Returned, about a global event in which long-deceased loved ones have
begun returning from the dead, seeking to reenter the lives they left behind.
At its core, the novel is about loss, and the many different ways we respond to

to the departed, write them letters, as if they can hear us from beyond.”
In addition to the exclusive letter from the author, the Kindle version of The First is available in the
Kindle store, exclusively until June 1st, starting today.

culmination of a childhood dream that I never really dared believe would come

We’re thrilled to be part of such a meaningful new release.
