A setback and a step forward

My debut novel was supposed to be published by the end of this year.  A contract was signed back in January or February.  Sadly, due to a change of focus from the publisher, all rights to my novel have been returned.

Amazingly, it doesn’t feel like a big deal.

Sure, I’m a litle disappointed.  I think that’s natural.  The choice to remove the book from the production schedule was mine, though.  I was offered the chance to stay on and declined it.  No hard feelings, just business.

I’ll be shopping that novel again later this week.

In more positive news, I got a peek at the contract for a novel I co-wrote with a friend.  A lot of folks know about the book, and maybe they’ve been wondering why I don’t mention it much.  Well, that’s because I don’t like to talk about things that aren’t contracted.  Now, we’re a step closer to this book becoming a reality, and that comforts me.

Keep your fingers crossed, ladies and gents.
