In my last blog post, I lamented about my historical novel that had languished in a cue for publication for over two years. Having worked out my feelings about that in my writing, I took the leap.
I left the publisher.
Amazing what life brings your way when you stop clinging to what is comfortable, what is easy.
I had a good ride with my first book, but it was time to move on. Almost immediately, I found a new publisher: Black Rose Writing.
Having been burned by my past small publisher experience, I was reluctant to sign another contract without doing some research. How disappointing it was to dig up some old Writer Beware and Reddit threads about BRW; I almost refused the contract.
Before saying 'no', I decided to look up some of BWR's current authors. I reached out to half a dozen of them and they kindly responded, each and every one of them raving about the support they got from Black Rose.
So, I signed, and thus far, I've been impressed by the amount of communication I've received. I'm excited for our collaboration. We already have a publication date set: April 25, 2024.
I just know I made the right decision.
More big changes are on the way. Stay tuned...
