Yeah. This thing that happened with Silver Publishing. You're going to see a lot of stuff out there - some of it's even true. I don't think anyone knows the whole truth except the man who fled the country.
For me it was over last November. I don't have a gag order like some authors had to sign. I just had a lump sum settlement of far less than I was owed and the return of my work, which was far more precious to me.
It took contacting the Michigan AG's office to get any agreement at all - but I was free and trying like hell to get my friends out in time. For some it worked. For others, the boulder had begun to roll too fast already and horrid amounts of author income has been lost.
I've had people ask over the last six months, "Angel, where is such and such a book? I saw it on Goodreads. Why can't I buy it anywhere?" Fear not, intrepid readers. The end is in sight.
Through the intervention of Kris Jacen and a pitch session that was really just a lovely conversation, Endangered Fae will be releasing again through Man Love Romance.
Re-releasing and slightly rewritten with Finn's Christmas melded in as the last chapter, Finn the pooka will be back with us 6/6/14
Re-releasing 8/8/14 (although this was never given to Silver, it was briefly out there through MCB.)
The missing ESTO novels
I'd love to say they ended up in the same place, but unfortunately, some publishers got a bit overwhelmed with picking up Silver's detritus and decided to stop taking reissues.
Re-releasing through Dreamspinner Press some time in late July/early August
Turk and Isaac are in edits now and will return to us soon
Vassily the Beautiful
Re-releasing through Mischief Corner Books some time in late June, we believe. Probably. Freddy Mackay's working on a new cover that should be fabulous :)
That's it for me, folks. The only other story I had with Silver was a M/F short story that I don't think more than a handful of folks read. And that can stay in my files until I need it.
Thank you all for your patience, for your inquiries, and for your expressions of sympathy. We're moving on - we'll all set this behind us and keep going.
Onward. Ever onward.
