Taking my rights back or signing a book over to another publisher is one of the toughest decisions I've had to make in my writing career up to this point. It's a decision that admittedly kept me up a few nights. Just the idea of signing a contract with a NY publisher gave me goosebumps. But, after weighing the pros and the cons and scrutinizing my personal goals roadmap...I knew the best decision for me would be to keep the rights.
Clearly not the best choice for everyone, I know. And only a few short years ago there wouldn't have been a choice at all. Thankfully, today authors have a choice and I have the ability to pick my own path. Right or wrong, time will tell.
It's the fact that I had that choice that excited me and gave me those few sleepless nights.
Then there was the cover decision. While I loved my original cover and knew it would be a tough act to follow, Elaina Lee from For The Muse Designs out did herself on the cover you see here! It captures the essence of the story and I couldn't be more thrilled with the end result.
If you aren't one of the 50 or so people who read William and Rebecca's story while it was available from Lyrical Press, I hope you'll watch for it March 1st!
