Not much to say about it at the moment, but I just signed a deal with Diversion Books for The Devil’s Metal. I’m not sure when the takeover will happen, but when it does, The Devil’s Metal will be published by a reputable publishing house — and I can officially call myself a published author! (without having to put the whole “indie” and “self” in front of it).
Seriously, I love being an indie and I will ALWAYS be publishing some of my work in this format. I like the control and the steady paycheck. I like being my own boss.
But sometimes I hate being my own boss (see recent post on editing my books: http://experimentinterror.com/so-you-found-a-typo/). And I hate it when people say “Oh you’re an author?” “Yes, I’ve written a few books.” “Self-published?” “Uh, yes.” “Oh…that kind of author. Not a real one.” (YES I’ve had that conversation a few times).
Now I can say “NO, I’VE GOT A PUBLISHING DEAL WITH DIVERSION BOOKS FROM NYC, BITCH.”
I can’t wait for the next person to ask… heh heh
What does this mean for you? I’m not sure. The book will still be available at all the online outlets, maybe at a higher price of $2.99. The cover will stay the same (yay). The awesome inside will still stay the same. And there should be a sequel out (The Devil’s Reprise) sometime this year (no idea about the details of that, however).
HOWEVER because Diversion Books is an e-book only publisher, paperbacks of the book will soon be pulled. SO if you always wanted a paperback version — particularly if you wanted me to sign one at Boston, RT, SFINE — get one NOW! I’ve ordered a bunch in so I’ll have a few to have as special giveaways but otherwise…do it now! It will be a collector’s item soon.
You can purchase paperbacks HERE while supplies last!
Meanwhile, I’m also looking to ink a deal with Diversion Books for my upcoming book Lost in Wanderlust. THIS IS VERY EXCITING. I hope to have more info on that soon
And in other news, I’ve been posting Sins & Needles teasers at my other website: http://khalle.wordpress.com/2013/01/09/sins-needles-teaser-1/
And yeah. That’s it. Back to my writing cave. I’m getting good feedback on this book, so I’m VERY happy about that. And I’m enjoying writing it. Always a good sign!
