I’ve been holding onto some big news for a while now. In fact, it’s a bit of a bad news/good news kind of thing.
Some of you might have wondered why my talk about Gidion’s Blood, the second book in the Gidion Keep, Vampire Hunter series went abruptly silent this past February. Three weeks after I turned in the manuscript for the second book to my publisher Fable Press, they notified me they were going out of business. Not only would it mean they couldn’t publish the second book, but this meant my first book would disappear from shelves unless I found a new publisher or a way to self-publish the novels. This is why after May 31st, Gidion’s Hunt will essentially become unavailable.
Now, the good news.
My young adult series and I have found a new home. Diversion Books will release Gidion’s Blood on August 11th. Not only will they keep the series going, they’ll be rereleasing the first book on that same date with a new cover.
Diversion Books plans to give my series a strong push, and it’s been a lot of fun working with and getting to know their team. I’m still grateful to the folks at Fable Press for having taken that first chance on Gidion Keep, but I’m also looking forward to what’s next with my new publisher.
I’m also really grateful to my close friends and family (especially, my wife!) who have kept me sane and optimistic during the time I was hunting for a new publisher.
There’s even more news than this, a lot more. I’ll save some of that for future posts, but the headline here is that the next book in the Gidion Keep, Vampire Hunter series is less than three months away, so let the countdown begin!
