I received a comment on an old post recently. The commenter asked about the sequel to Man Whore. I’ve been meaning to address that for some time, so how about now.
Back when Man Whore was first released, I had some troubles that left a bad taste in my mouth. It took a while to dive back into those characters and write the second story. By the time that sequel was completed, there were already hints that Silver Publishing wouldn’t be around for the long haul, so I set the manuscript aside to see how those things would wash out.
Unfortunately, wash out was the right term. SP is gone, and I’m still figuring out what to do with the stories they abandoned. So far, I have this:
My Ghost – rereleased as of August 2nd. It can be found on Amazon, ARe, and Smashwords.
Fallen – Under contract with Loose Id. Expect a new name with the rerelease near year end.
Bound By Love – New name and cover assigned. I’m working through self-pubbing hell. Hopefully I’ll have it ready to rerelease by end of September.
Man Whore – This one is more difficult. It doesn’t fit Loose Id’s house style, so I haven’t even showed it to my editor there. I also haven’t made the time to research which publishing house might be interested. Recommendations are welcome from those of you who have read it.
Then there’s the rest of the Personal Demons series (of which Man Whore is the first). The second title is ready to submit to a publisher, and the rest of the series has individual synopses prepared. Part of me wants to finish first drafts of the remaining stories first. The rest of me knows that’s not going to happen anytime soon. Perhaps I’m avoiding the work of figuring out a new publishing house. Loose Id isn’t going anywhere and I don’t want to risk another Silver fiasco.
Please, dear Readers, recommendations and/or patience appreciated. I’ll figure it out eventually. I haven’t forgotten. There is so much on my writing to do list, and Man Whore is high up on that list.
