The first (semi) independently published book is a learning experience. Every author I know of who has published either independently or through a small publishing company has said the same thing. They learned a lot. Lexa is no exception.
In September 2012, the second edition was released, still as A. A. Cheshire, still through Mantler Publishing. But with a new title, Hunting the Dephlendar, and as part of the Colony World 1.5.3E set. Also with a different cover layout. This edition was discontinued, but as with the first, there may be used copies around.
The third (current) edition came about after Lexa left Mantler Publishing in the fall of 2014 and moved to Howling Wolf Books.
The story was re-edited with new, never seen before material added in and released as the first book in the Cemen Colony series in April 2015. Of course with a completely new cover and under the name Alexandra A. Cheshire.
It is available in both print and ebook.
"Centuries ago, an ancient evil was concealed in five watchtowers on the world of Cemen, using the stones known as dephlendar for protection. Now forgotten by time, they continue their guardianship, awaiting those chosen to destroy the great evil and usher in a new era in history.
Amy and Stacie have grown up far from home and family, training to fulfill their roles in the fate of their world... If they can survive this first task with mind and body intact."
