As I’m sure some of you have heard by now, Republica Press has decided to close down for a few reasons, one being the issues with PayPal that came up in the past few weeks. In any case, my books are temporarily unavailable for purchase as of today. They are still listed on Amazon, Kindle and the Nook stores but I’m not sure for how long, or even if you’d still be able to purchase and download them right now. I’m going to be working on publishing them myself through Amazon and Smashwords but in the mean time, they won’t be around. I’ll keep you posted as to when they will be available again, along with any new publications that I might get done.
I am disappointed by this decision of RP’s but I suppose I can understand it and there’s nothing I can do about it, really. I might have wished for more time or warning but again, it wasn’t a choice I had any say in.
Moving forward, this may turn out to be a good thing. As great as RP was in getting me started, and so many of us, they could or would only do so much in the way of advertising and promotion. I know the company was only part of what they did in their lives and it’s understandable that they hadn’t the means or know-how. Not that I expect my own merit to take me to superstardom. 🙂 I still hope to reach a larger audience and make more money, of course. I don’t think that’s too crazy a dream.
Anyway, I don’t have much time to write here today. I’m off to a baby shower for one of my best friends. When I get back later, I’ll be hopefully getting some writing or editing done. Even if I don’t have anything new to publish for a while, I still intend to work on free stories for Lit.
For now, I hope you’re all having a nice weekend, maybe enjoying Spring Break. 🙂
Take care and happy reading.
