. . . and that’s that.

Just a quick one – I’m super busy right now but I thought I’d drop you all a line to say that, unfortunately, the book deal died.

So close to the finish line!

It was a couple of weeks ago now that Royal James Publishing announced they were closing up shop, effective immediately.  I guess I should have seen it coming: other publications went to print with mistakes; I frequently had to correct factual information regarding my own book; the NOVEL I reviewed tells a story of its own of the kind of publishing house that would represent it.

But I was willing to let all of this go, everything of which I slowly became aware, because they were going to put my work out there.  That fact came to mean less and less as I saw the quality of some of the other stuff they published, but still . . . it was an important milestone for me.

On the other hand, the milestone hasn’t disappeared – it’s where it always was: in front of me.

I’ve got what I believe to be one of my best works slowly (oh, so painfully slowly) taking shape, and the optimist in me says that this one, this one for sure, is going to be read by more people than myself and my long-suffering friends.

Apologies for boring post.

As you were, ladies and gentlemen.
