Yesterday was bittersweet, as the 20 titles I requested the rights back for were returned to me. Signing that contract felt like signing divorce papers.
During the time we were together, Dreamspinner was a tireless advocate of my work, shepherding not only traditional publishing routes of digital and paperback books, but also getting my work translated and sold in Spanish, Italian, French, and German. They produced many audiobooks of my work. They got my work reviewed in places like Entertainment Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus, and Publisher's Weekly.
But...nothing in life lasts forever. It's saddening to see us come to the end of the road like this (details: https://accrispin.blogspot.com/2019/09/authors-concern-grows-over-late-royalty.html). I hope, more than anything, that Dreamspinner can right their ship.
In the coming months, you will see many of my books disappear from sales outlets. Rest assured, everything is in place to bring them back to new and exciting life. All of the books should be back for sale at the usual outlets by early-to-mid 2020.
And, I'm grateful to you, my readers, who conspire with me to bring my stories to life. I promise to continue to write with the purpose of engaging you, entertaining you, and touching your heart.
