After the publication of 'Lovers in Arms', my wife and I took some time to lean back, watch and learn. Getting a book on the market with a traditional publisher was a good experience, and the folks at Forbidden Fiction were nothing but nice. But their portfolio doesn't really match the kind of stories my wife and I like to write together. Though, probably, no publisher would really find a good spot for our unique mix of romance, fun and adventure. So given the current developments in self-publishing, my wife and I decided that we would embark on another adventure together.
Beginning early next year, we will be publishing our co-written books ourselves. That is, until we decide that we'll do things differently yet again. ^^
Preparing to self-publish is a lot of work, and I am lucky my day job has trained me in project management over the last years. But on the other hand, it feels incredibly liberating to have to make all the decisions - yes, we carry all the risks, but if we fail, it's our failure entirely. Over the last months, we have been busy deciding on a publishing queue for our project, finding the right partners, writing, editing, proofing. And writing. Did I mention we write like mad, recently?
So, you can look ahead to a rather steady stream of books, lovingly written by Beryll and me, carefully edited and proofed, prettied up and sold via all the usual suspects. At least, we're looking forward to them. :)
I will keep you all updated about the developments in the coming weeks, and I hope some of you will be around when we celebrate the release of our next book early next year!
