If the past year has taught me anything, it’s that everything can change before you know it. At this time last year, I was promoting two ebooks with No Boundaries Press before they closed only paying perhaps a quarter of their authors.
Surprisingly and thankfully it didn’t take me long to bounce back. I submitted my re-tooled suspense series to Nevermore Press, and was picked up again, the first book being released in November.
Since then, I have released two other books in The Edge of Springwood series, had my first author event, and just signed new contracts and have approved my first two books to be uploaded as paperbacks to Ingram’s Distribution. Nevermore Press is currently compiling lists to have our books available for purchase, several bookstores, grocery stores and even the military are part of the growing list they will be approaching.
I can honestly say this is the first Summer I have looked forward to in a long time. I am finally starting to feel like a real author after years of struggling. Nevermore Press is the third publisher I have taken this storyline through, and as they say a third time is charm. It is certainly starting to look that way.
