Things are progressing with the re-release of my fantasy novel, The Eynan, through its new publisher.
I am working through the final edits and have just received the new cover! I like it:)
I now need to update my website….
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.
I discovered a way to post globalized links on my website for the purchase of my books from Amazon. In other words, when you want to purchase my novels from Amazon, from wherever you are in the world, when you click the Amazon Kindle link on my website you will transferred to your nearest Amazon site!
That’s right, Amber Quill Press has just introduced a new feature on their website! Each week AQP will be featuring a new set of ten titles, or sometimes book bundles, for only $0.99!
The sales will commence on a Friday and end the following Thursday! The intent is to start with books that have been with AQP since the publisher opened its doors way back in 2002! An excellent opportunity to find some new authors, or perhaps read the older books of a favorite author.
