Quick Note

Well, it’s official. Republica Press is going out of business. 

1. Sales of Republica books on every site will end as of April 1st. Anything up until then will be treated as normal and go on our final statement. So all books can still be bought until then. 

2. The rights will revert to the authors immediately. This is really great news! We will get the master copies. As I understand it we get the covers, also.

3. Then it's up to the authors to do what we will with those. I'm still thinking about what I’m going to do with Darkness Awaits. I may revise and expand it, but won’t change the plot. There’s a few things I’d like to tweak. 

I want to thank Emma for that first email so long ago. Without her I don’t know if I would have ever worked up the nerve to publish. I’m sad to see RP go out of business, but the memories left to me are ones I’ll never forget. So… thank you, Emma.

  1. Do you think that you will put Darkness Awaits back up on Lit? I was really sad to see it go, having only gotten to read it once and loving it.

    1. To be honest, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. I'm still kinda in shock! RP going out of business really caught me off guard. But, I'll def let everyone know when I figure out what I'm going to do. :)

  2. Good luck hun! Everything will work out. I know your work will find a new home very soon. Even though it' s a bummer about RP, I believe things happen for a reason. Crossing my fingers for you...

  3. We've talked about this and, yeah, it's a lot to digest. You're losing a part of your writing comfort zone. :( You always remember your first. I know I remember mine. Wild and crazy and it's like being in love for the first time. But you have options with DA, including self-publishing, and you may also find another publisher willing to take it on, if you want to put it out again. I could do that with my out of print books, but I'm totally invested in writing my new stuff, so reluctant to revisit the old. You may find yourself in the same boat.
