Last Monday, I signed the contract with My Green Publisher giving them publishing rights to The Howling Heart. It says the book will be published by June 30, 2013. I have an appreciation for graphic art, so I can’t wait to see what kind of cover they come up with. Their cover artist also has to design the back since the novel will be released in paperback. I have a pretty simple concept for that. I just want the story summary over rippling dark water.
Hallelujah! Riley & Paige will live on after all! For 21 months, I’ve been trying to publish my second novel, The Howling Heart, through 74 literary agents, publishers, and e-publishers. I had been waiting for one last publisher to respond and I finally received some good news. My Green Publisher will be acquiring my novel and I’m very excited to be working with them. I think it’s ironic their slogan is “The publishers that care.” I needed someone to care about my novel and realize its potential. The editor informed me that my novel won’t be released until after April 2013. That’s fine with me. I’m just grateful they took an interest in it. I’m thrilled they publish e-books and paperbacks because not all e-pubs do. I still owe some of my supportive readers free, signed copies of paperbacks. This reminds me, I need to update my bio and FAQ’s.
I received an email today from Xcite Books and they rejected my partial submission for The Howling Heart. They gave me another typical vague response. Now I’m only waiting for Pink Flamingo Publications to respond. They are also considering my story for publication through My Green Publisher. My publisher list has been updated. I hope the editor at Pink Flamingo gives me good news. If not, I’ll have to wait until some time next year to put Plan B into action.
