The return of Kristen Conner … she’s back and she’s (still a little) mad!
First item of business, the only way to purchase either of the first two Kristen Conner murder mysteries is as a used paperback online – yes – it’s true – Cuts Like a Knife and Every Breath You Take are officially out of print.
I take that back. The large-print library editions published by Center Point and the audio editions published by Oasis Audio are still available. All eBook editions are down and gone!
But that’s not a bad thing – it’s by design. Worthy Publishing bought rights to the first two novels and did a fabulous job. Both books hit #1 on Barnes & Noble. The covers, trailers, and publicity were great. I was very fortunate to get reviews from some of the major national media outlets that cover books – Publishers Weekly, USA Today, Romance Times, and many others.
But Worthy’s sweet spot is nonfiction and we agreed that it was the right time for the series to move. Note: With the percentage of fiction sold in the eBook format, many publishers are contracting their fiction lists – this is standard operating procedure in today’s publishing universe.
Enter Sydney Lane Press – a fiction company founded by yours truly and one of my colleagues from when I was publisher at Thomas Nelson – Brian Henson. Brian and I have complimentary (and wildly different) gifts and talents. (For example, Brian can do math.) Our business model will be to bring proven fiction authors back to market.
But back to Kristen Conner.
Cold As Ice will be available August 1, 2015. Yay! To all who have asked “when is the next one coming?” … THANK YOU for your patience.
New editions of Cuts Like a Knife and Every Breath You Take will be available on July 7, 2015. In particular, Every Breath You Take has undergone a major new edit – not quite a rewrite, but close!
Jeane and Tyson Wynn of Wynn-Wynn Media will be handling publicity.
