NEW YORK (AP) - The author of the inspirational novella “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” is opening up about the plane crash that nearly killed him.

Richard Bach has a deal with Amazon.com Publishing for “Illusions II,” a sequel to the 1977 best-seller “Illusions” that will tell of his 2012 accident. The new work is being sold exclusively through Amazon’s Kindle Single e-book program, which has offered short works from Stephen King, Christopher Hitchens and others.

Amazon announced Friday that “Illusions II” is available for $2.99.

The 77-year-old Bach suffered brain, chest and spine injuries when he crashed his plane while trying to land on San Juan Island in Washington state.
