On September 20th, I was finally able to get some closure on a two-year ongoing struggle with one of my publishers who was partaking in some very questionable dealings in regards to royalties. Which means that by the end of 2016, I will have the rights returned on the following books:
Reclaiming the Edge
Edge of Need
Taking Over Me
Rock Your Soul
Break Me In
Glad You Came
I have some time to decide what to do with these books, and I’m working on a plan to turn them around to get them back out and available to readers. Six full-length novels (four of which are an entire series), one novella and one short are a lot to juggle so it’s going to take me a little bit to sort things out since I’m only one person. 🙂
When I have a plan in place, I will certainly keep this space updated!
In some way, despite all the struggle and hassle this particular process has been, it is also bittersweet. I was elated when I signed Ragged Edge with Ellora’s Cave. This awesome, fantastic publisher wanted to publish my book. And in a few ways, that choice was a game changer. Ragged Edge earned me PAN status with RWA, something I was convinced I would never attain. I met my awesome editor who I worked with for 10 books. She made me work, and work damn hard, to make my books fabulous. Pulling things from me that I didn’t even know I was capable of. I met some dear friends at Romanticon the couple of times I attended and had a great time.
It’s been quite a ride! But I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter with these books. I had plans for continuing the Body Masters series (Xavier! Diane!) and spinning off the Geek Kink series (Dade’s brothers!) and now I can dig those synopses and partials back out!!
