As you can see, I have a new banner at the top of my blog site. I now have a new cover for Winter's Captive, Book 1 of the Georgia Series. And a new cover for Chasing Georgia, Book 2 of the Georgia Series.
I am in a transition at the moment. It is with some sadness that my publisher and I have parted and I now have the rights back for Winter's Captive. Asteroid Publishing gave me the opportunity as a first time author to be published and for that, I will be forever grateful. They taught me a lot the past two years about writing, publishing, and marketing. They are headed in a new direction that I have decided is not for me. I have the utmost respect for Asteroid and wish them every success with their future endeavours.
So where am I headed? As mentioned in a previous post, new decisions need to be made. To self-publish or seek a new publisher? Currently, a publisher is considering Chasing Georgia, Book 2 and we are in the process of talks and edits. They are aware that I have my rights back to Book 1 and as I write this post, it is under consideration as to whether or not they will pick it up along with Book 2. Should they decide not to republish Winter's Captive, I will then self-publish it and move forward with Book 2.
Winter's Captive e-book has come down as of today and shortly, the paperback version will be down as well. I do have copies with the old cover and those are still available for purchase through myself or Asteroid Publishing for a limited time period or until existing stock has been sold.
Meanwhile, check out my new covers. They were done by Paradox Book Cover Designs. Patti Roberts is an author in her own right and a wonderful cover designer. I had so much fun working with her on the new designs. She is absolutely awesome and works so quickly. She pays attention to detail and captured the ideas from my samples I sent her. And believe me, my samples cannot compare to the final product she produced. The covers are amazing and way beyond my expectations. If you need a cover here is the LINK to contact her. She also has some premade covers on display on her site for purchase.
I will keep you up-to-date as to when Winter's Captive will be back up and when Chasing Georgia will be published. Closing out my post today with my two new covers which I just love.
Meanwhile keep on keeping on writing.
