Last evening, I got an email stating that my publisher, Booktrope, has announced that it will cease all operations as of May 31st. The news, sadly, is not a complete surprise, but the suddenness of it has left all of us in the Booktrope community shocked, angry, stressed, depressed, frustrated, frightened…insert your own emotion here, and I’m sure it would fit.
What this means in the immediate future is that the fate of the Kyrie Carter series is completely up in the air. As of right now, I am going under the assumption that they will no longer be available in their current status for purchase after that date (at least not on Amazon. I will have copies available to sell myself, until they’re gone). What that means for anyone who has not yet gotten a copy is that if you want to read/buy any of them, now would be a good time to pop over to Amazon and pick them up, or contact me for a copy. The titles are:
THE NEWBIE and
However, I will say that this is not the end of Kyrie and her adventures. I am still working on Book 3, tentatively titled The Witch of Willow Lake, and I have seeds for at least two more books after that. I’ve also got a few other projects in mind that will likely come into play at some point.
This situation has shaken me up, but I refuse to give up this dream of mine. I have found what my life’s work is to be, and I strongly believe that the God who birthed that dream in me will not allow it to die; He will direct my steps as far as future publication.
I would like to take a moment to thank all those family and friends who have been so amazingly supportive of my stories… it means so much more than I could ever put into words.
And thank you to Booktrope, for giving my books a chance.
