Samhain Publishing Will Be Closing

Dear Readers,

Samhain Publishing has announced that it is shutting down at the end of February, 2017. They have started to remove all the books they publish from sale, from all distribution channels. (Amazon, Nook, Kobo, etc.)

After Samhain removes the books from sale, they will start the process of returning publishing rights to all of their authors. This will take a little bit of time. Authors can then choose whether to reissue their books- either through another publisher or through self-publishing.

I have several e-books that this affects:

True Colors (rights have already reverted to me)

Natural Evil

Devil’s Gate

Hunter’s Season

The Wicked

All of my Amanda Carpenter Retro Romances

I am planning to re-issue these books, but it will take some time to do so. At this time I cannot give you an estimate when they will be available. Note that this only affects the e-book versions of my stories- I have print and audio versions of the Elder Races novellas that will remain on sale.

If you already own these books, they should stay in your libraries and you do not need to repurchase them. Of course we have no control over e-book ecosystems, so it’s always a good idea to back up favorite books just in case. 😀

(Note: If you bought directly from the Samhain site, you DO need to download your Samhain library!)

If you want to purchase these books sooner rather than later, be sure to grab them from Samhain while they are available. If you’re fine with waiting, don’t worry – I WILL be rereleasing them. You can like my page on Facebook and sign up for my newsletter to keep up to date with news about these titles, and about new releases.

As always, happy reading!

    Boy this does make one leary of buying from publishers direct. On the other hand, the Big Monopolies like Audible really restrict your rights re audiobooks.
