The sad news in Romancelandia today is that Samhain Publishing will finally be shutting its doors after 12 years. Although The Striker’s Chance released first, Secure Target – released by Samhain – was the first novel I completed and submitted after a six-year writing hiatus. I went on to publish five books with Samhain and as an author, couldn’t fault the outstanding editing, beautiful covers and awesome marketing support I received.
The Samhain site will go dark on the 28th February and their titles will begin disappearing from third-party retailers. There may be a big gap before I’m able to get these titles back up for sale, so if there are any backlist books you’ve been contemplating, now is the time to buy! That goes for any and all Samhain authors whose books you’ve ever enjoyed. Some have built their entire careers on Samhain’s foundations and will be much more greatly affected than me, and I know they’ll appreciate every last penny of support.
Onwards and upwards!
