Yeah, I’m sorry it’s been months since I last posted on this blog. I can say the beginning of the year came with something of a shock as I learned that my publisher was having difficulties and Amber Quill Press was set to close its doors at the end of March, 2016.
It also means that my books are no longer available to purchase (well, unless you’re prepared to pay a ridiculous price for a paperback!).
It also proved there was some truth in the saying about not having all your eggs in one basket! Seeing as I had published my three novels with the same publisher I needed to find a new publisher for each of my publications. I admit that I originally approached Amber Quill as I also published gay romance books with them under a separate pen name (Stevie Woods) – and I admit I found it considerably easier to find other publishing deals for those books as I also worked with other publishers for that genre and those publishers were happy to accept my books for republication.
I have approached other publishers for my L.S. Gibson novels, so far, sadly, without any luck.
I have two other options: trying to get an Agent, or self-publishing. I’m still undecided as to which is the better avenue to pursue. I have done some self-publishing under my other pen name but only for short stories.
I think I’ll approach a couple of agents to see what response I might get, holding the self-publication in reserve for the time being.
I’ll let folk know when I have some more news.
