Seemed like a good day to post something.

I've been putting it off because I don't like to share bad news.
Yeah, that's right, Leatherwood Press now says that they don't know how to market The Watchers of Sionon and they are probably going to drop me.

So I was looking for a publisher when I found them and I can do it again right? Who knows, maybe they will still take a chance. It's still a good book and just because it doesn't fit into a nice little genre mold doesn't mean it won't do well.

But for now, I'm tired of banging my head and I'm going to give it a rest. I'm putting the Watchers trilogy back on ice and I'm working on something that will be easier to sell...

Not telling yet, but I'm very excited about it. I just finished reworking the first chapter and it's phenomenal! I think I will enter it in the First Chapter competition at the LDSstorymakers conference in May.

  2. Oh Norma that's rotten. You would think they would have thought of that BEFORE offering you a publishing contract, not after. I love your positive attitude. Here's to finding a publisher for your book!

  4. The Watcher's Trilogy sounds interesting...At least the title does. If it's any consolation, Truman Capote's first novel, B.A.T's was turned down. He stuck the M.S. in a drawer and wrote I.C.B. After it was published, his first one came next. Sometimes it works out that way. Keep pushing. You'll get there. Best of luck.
