The four of us love to play around, but as authors, sometimes we have to address something that affects all of us, at least in the romance community.
Most of you are probably at least tangentially aware of the closing of the major romance bookseller site All Romance Ebooks. This was not a big deal to some readers, because a lot of folks go through Amazon, but it was a one stop shop for a lot of readers who wanted something not Kindle format.
The upshot of the closing for the four of us, besides the fact that Lori James has refused to pay us to the tune of a hefty sum I won't go into here, is that our newest releases, the ones on preorder especially, never saw the light of day. For me, BA and Kiernan, that included three new historical paranormal books ARE was actually publishing. The series is called Club Raven, and we've been working feverishly to reformat the files and rebrand the books and get them back out.
We're hoping to have them out by the 17th, and they'll be on Amazon, Nook, Smashwords, and hopefully ibooks. The best part, though, is that we also (crossing fingers) hope to have them available direct at a bookstore we're making called Evil Plot Bunny. You can see the bare bones of the site at www.evilplotbunny.com, though I ask that no one make an account until we launch on the 17th as we're still testing.
Now, EPB is not a publisher. It's going to be a bookstore for our self-published works. Nothing fancy, but it will take Paypal and cards, and we hope it will make things easier for the readers who prefer not to buy Kindle books. We'll have the mobi files, though, even if you want to buy from us and load on your Kindle.
BA's Nature Call book will be up there, as well, and we hope Sean Michael's Mannies etc.
I promise more information to come, but most of all, we want to thank everyone who reads our books for sticking with us, no matter what the crazy world of publishing tosses at us.
