There has been a new development in regards to Samhain Publishing, the publisher of my Lost Alphars series. Continue reading to find out more.
So Samhain has decided to close their doors permanently due to financial strife. What does this mean for me and the other authors published through Samhain? We will have the rights to our books returned and they will no longer be on sale. I don't have a timeline on this, but I do know the Samhain website will close down at the end of February.
I appreciate Samhain's attempt to stay open through this trying time and that they are being very honest with their authors. I am disappointed after what felt like a marathon of back and forth emails regarding the publication of To Mate a Soldier, which had already been pushed back because of their initial indecision to close last year. Alas, it does nothing to complain or to be bitter. I am forever thankful to Samhain for the chance to get my stories out into the world.
So what's next? I don't have anything lined up to be released right now, but I am working on a new contemporary romance series. The first chapter of the first book I have uploaded (unedited so please be forgiving of mistakes) on the new Seasons in the City page on this website. Check it out and let me know what you think by sending me a message through Facebook, Twitter, or my Contact Me page on the website.
This is not the end for the Lost Alphars series, I just need to reassess and search for a new path forward. Thanks for sticking with me, all!
