The rue des Martyrs in Paris, setting of my novel
As some of you might have noticed, my novel Paris, Rue des Martyrs has disappeared from all online booksellers. So what happened? Will it ever return?
Here’s the story:
I decided to split from my literary agent. Our strategies had diverged. My agent’s imprint didn’t provide print books or marketing support—and I realized those were two things that I needed.
As I wondered whether to self-publish or look for another literary agent, the idea of Velvet Morning Press was born. Initially, fellow author and co-founder Vicki Lesage and I planned on operating VMP separately from our own books. We would self-publish our books on the side.
Then we realized that with so much changing in the publishing world, why not create our own model? VMP could publish the works of other authors and still publish our own books. On the VMP website, we list our own books separately from those of our authors.
So will Paris, Rue des Martyrs be back? Yes, in January in both ebook and print form. Watch this space for more details about my novels and all of the wonderful books VMP has in store for you!
And thanks for reading!
