In case you missed the announcement, Rhest For The Wicked is now available for the Kindle and other ebook readers, with the print version to come shortly (possibly this week). But that’s not all! Haven Publishing House, (aka my publisher) has also released The Pack by Dan Coglan and I Think? No, I’m Sure…God Hates Me by Manny Camacho. The Pack is a fantasy story, while God Hates Me is a collection of various tales about conventions and the wacky world surrounding conventions. Please check them both out…as well as Rhest For the Wicked, of course!
Again, these are all ebooks; the print editions will be available soon.
I first published Crossworld in 2001, so it’s a weird experience being a ‘new author’ a second time around. Given the gap since my last novel came out, I feel like I’m almost starting my career over again. I’m not sure that’s a bad thing. In the intervening years since my first book, I’ve learned a lot about the industry. But it was always as an independent author. I failed more than I succeeded and I have the personal and professional scars to show for it. But I also had a lot of fun and got to realize a dream.
Now signed with Haven, an indie company (and an upstart in its own right), it’s been interesting seeing many of the growing pains I went through when I was first published, only now on a company scale. It’s been a hell of a ride just getting to this point. But now that I/we are here, it’s like cresting a mountain. It’s been long, hard, and arduous, but now we get to look out over the possibility that lies ahead.
This is an incredibly exciting time; professional, artistically, and personally. Having the serials back online, being back in print, and now having a publishing house behind me, a new set of challenges and opportunities presents itself. It’s exciting, to say the least.
For those of you who have been here with me through it all, thank you for sticking by me. For those of you who are just now joining the adventure, welcome aboard. We’re just getting started and there’s a LOT of fun stuff on the way.
And some of it will be showing up sooner than you think! 🙂
