Okay, so this post is a bit of a doozy. Some of you may remember back in the fall when I announced the sale of my YA time travel thriller, RIFT.
It literally was one of the funnest posts I've written. I was so happy. Things were going so well. I finally felt like I was producing and publishing again, after a long period of stagnation, of going nowhere, of wondering if I was a "real writer" or just someone playing the writing game.
Fast forward to now. I won't go into all the details, not only because I don't think it's necessary, but because there are multiple sides to this story, and you'd only be getting mine.
The bottom line is, I own the rights to RIFT again. It will not be published by Jolly Fish Press, much as I would've liked it to be.
So. I stewed and stewed. What should I do with this book?
I still believe it's a good book. I was able to secure a literary agent with the manuscript. I was able to secure 3 offers of publication from small presses with it.
Should I just throw it away? Let it sit? Forget about it?
Well, I'm a little bit of a pit bull, and I finally decided I couldn't do that.
After a couple of months of thought--and seeing how well my adult fantasy has done with Amazon/Kindle Press--I've decided to go ahead and run a Kindle Scout campaign for RIFT. After all, the sequel is already drafted. I decided I couldn't just throw away two books.
So! If you would take a few seconds to nominate RIFT for publication with Kindle Press, I would really appreciate it! It's live today for the next 30 days, and if you nominate the book, you'll get a free copy should it get selected for publication.
You have to have an Amazon account and be logged in. Then it's just a matter of a single click on the blue "nominate me" button. That's it.
Thank you so much!
