When a publisher goes out of business, it’s not the end of the world. It’s tough to know this at first, especially when it’s your publisher. Initially, I cringed to learn Ingram was telling the world, (well at least Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Amazon, and all the wonderful, resilient Indie book stores out there), that my book is no longer available. Then, I began hearing from other publishers. Quite slowly, it dawned on me, I would be releasing a SECOND EDITION! There will be a new cover, a new release. And, this time around I can add review quotes, perhaps a sticker from the Next Generation Indie Book Award, and a book group discussion guide. It’s been quite a month so far!
I’ve learned exactly how much Vantage Point Books did for me. I will always be grateful for their creation of a First Edition, but I am excited about a Second. Soon, Memory Lake will once again be available for download on Kindle, Nook, iPad, or any other reader you may have. The files are being processed and should go ‘live’ by the end of the month. The folks at Tate Publishing have welcomed me quite generously and have taken over production of the second print edition. Now I can get back to writing, which is what I love most. I can’t wait to hear from the next round of readers who discover Memory Lake.
