By now, you've probably already heard about Samhain Publishing closing at the end of this month.
I heard about it in a blanket email sent to authors yesterday. While I was working on the second round of edits for a book that was scheduled to be released by Samhain in April. That's right. I spent all week--and two whole weeks last month--busting my chops editing a book that I thought was going to be released in a few months...
And found out it wouldn't be happening in such a generic way. I really wish someone had given the authors and editors who were currently working on stuff a head's up.
Oh well. I'm getting used to people treating others without mutual respect. O_o
Anyway, the bottom line is that all of my Sierra Fox Stories UF series (5 books), the Recast SFR series (4 books), and the first Elsewhere UF book will no longer be available after February 28th.
So if you're interested in checking out any of my books, there's only a few weeks to do so. You can check them out HERE.
After they're removed from the Samhain website and third party online stores, they won't be available anywhere.
At this stage, I have no idea what I will do with the ten published and two unpublished books after I get my rights back. (Which according to the email, I'm supposed to get shortly after the closure.)
Maybe one day I'll decide to self-publish them. Maybe I won't. Right now, I just need some time to think about it. Wait a sec... why does that sound familiar? Oh yeah, maybe because I went through this already last year. :/
Well, there you have it. Not great news, because I'm super proud of all these books, but that's okay.
It's (now definitely) time to move on.
