I Am Not Over

Kyrie Carter2

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:

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.

  1. Please don’t give up, Leta Hawk! I can’t wait to read Book 3, 4, 5, 6…and many more! If there is anything I can do to help your dream stay alive, just say the word! Hang in there!


  2. No worries, Kim. Kyrie’s story will continue. However, I will be stepping back for a bit to regroup. It’s really on my heart to rewrite the first two stories to reflect more of Kyr’s struggle between her religious beliefs and her paranormal experiences. Book 3 has her dealing so much with those questions and fights with her family, and it seems a bit disjointed. The main plot line will not change; we’ll just see more of what goes on in her heart and mind.

    Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. They mean more to me than you’ll ever know. ❤
