Drop Dead Gorgeous, Take Two
Life is constantly throwing us surprises. Exactly one week after my first novel had been released, I found out my publisher was closing its doors. I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry—maybe both.
This was my first publishing experience, and I felt like we’d come so far, my publisher and I, and then was shocked to learn everything would change so unexpectedly.
They were extremely gracious and apologized for the timing, and I started a crash course in self-publishing so we could make the transition as smoothly as possible. We had lined up interviews, blog posts, reviews, and a release party all celebrating my debut novel, published by Temptress Press.
And now here I sit, nine days after the release of the first edition of my first book, waiting for Amazon to confirm the second edition. Life is wacky, isn’t it?
To those who bought the first edition, thank you. To those who are stuck between editions, my sincere apologies. I hope the new edition will be out soon (Amazon says within 48 hours), but it’s entirely out of my hands, as are many aspects of life in general.
When the new edition comes out today or tomorrow or the next day, please keep in mind that although Temptress Press is no longer listed as the publisher, the two women who were Temptress Press are still the people who took a chance on me, offered me my first (and second!) publishing contract, and did their best to make this book the best it could be. They worked hard and life handed them a big surprise as well when they had to close their doors.
Thank you, Laura and Kirsty, for all you’ve done for me and the best of luck to you both. Life, bring it on. I’m ready for the next edition.
