So...Good News and Bad News

The good – and rather surreal – news is that I’ve recently signed a contract with Montlake Romance Publishing Company. I know, mental isn’t it. They contacted me a few months back about ‘Feral Sins’, wanting to obtain and re-release it along with more books from the Phoenix Pack series.  For any of you that don’t know – I hadn’t until they told me – Montlake is actually one of Amazon’s Publishing Houses. To be honest, I hadn't even known Amazon had any publishing houses. Yes, I'm that clueless. Anyway, I’ve been in negotiations with them over the past few months but I hadn’t wanted to mention it before now because I was afraid I’d jinx it. Plus, I really did figure that at some point they’d change their mind or something. But no, they haven’t.

So yes the good news is that soon it will be re-released having been edited professionally and with a few minor changes – one being that the group scene has been replaced with a scene that’s purely between Trey and Taryn as Montlake’s guidelines are that sex may only occur between two characters. Nothing at all about the plot will have changed.

The bad news is that this will delay the release of book two, ‘Wicked Cravings’ which is Dante’s story, because they need to re-release ‘Feral Sins’ before publishing the next one. But what’s good is that it will have been professionally edited. I know that some people find typos really annoying so hopefully this will take care of that.

I just want to thank the attorney David Vandagriff for all his help with analyzing my contract and his endless patience with me as I sought to understand just what all those lengthy wordy sentences meant. I seriously hounded the poor bloke.

Again, sorry about the delay. Hopefully I can get the first chapter of ‘Wicked Cravings’ up on my blog for people to read if they want.  

Take care,
