Rights Reversion

Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

If you’ve been looking at my book page, or checking out my Amazon listing, you might have noticed that there are some books missing. Like… all of the Rebel Mage books, and Chains of Light, and everything else that was published by Forbidden Fiction/Enspire Publishing.

The reason for that is simple:  after 8 years, four books, a few short stories, and a lot of good times, Forbidden Fiction and I have gone our separate ways.

It was a most amicable parting, and I’m sorry that I won’t get to work with Lon as my editor anymore.  I’ve worked with quite a few editors over the years, and I can honestly say that he’s one of the best.

Now, what does that mean for the Rebel Mage books and Chains of Light? And the short stories?

Forbidden Fiction has reverted all rights to me. So, at some point in the future when I have the time to do so, I’ll be rereleasing my work from Forbidden Fiction.  It will probably happen sometime in 2021 — I just don’t have the spoons at the moment. Which gives me time to decide if I want to rework Counsel of the Wicked and take out that scene. There are reasons to cut it (everyone seems to nope out at that scene), and there are reasons to leave it (it’s easily the most powerful thing I have ever written).

There will be decisions made. Just not yet. I think that when they do come out, it will be Chains of Light first. But again, I have time to make those decisions.

Be well. Stay safe.

Writing business

So, one of my publishers has gone out of business, and I’ve just gotten my rights reversion for The Rape of Persephone and for From Dusk ’til Dawn.

I’ll be getting Persephone back up ASAP as a self-published story, and checking with my publishers to see if they’re interested in a reprint on Dusk.

Business fun…

So… this happened.

CounselWicked_CvrPDFSwirl Awards Finalist  Badge

I do not yet know when the awards will be announced. But yay!!!!

In other news, Burden of Truth has been retitled. It is now Haven’s Fall, and it is with the line editor. I’ve been told that I’ll have edits back soon, and we’re shooting for a November release.

I’ve seen the cover, and it’s AWESOME. And that’s all I can tell you, so there. NYAH!!!

Sins of the Father is coming along, and is so far off outline that I can’t see the original route from here. I’m fairly certain that it will still end up in the same place, but instead of my original map, I’m taking the scenic back roads. Which have been educational — I never would have figured out that THAT character was the ultimate big bad otherwise. (Seriously, this one character has been thumbing their nose at me for two and a half books now.)

And in other, other news, I’ve found out that one of my publishers is closing their doors, and will be reverting rights. They’re being very lovely and generous about the whole thing, and even including cover art in the reversion. I’m sorry to see them go. But just when I think I’m out of the self-publishing gig…
