I've got some sad news to report. My wonderful publisher, Rhemalda Publishing informed its authors on Monday that it will be closing its doors. As we all know, it's a changing publishing world out there. It's always tough for small presses but it's especially so right now.
Rhett and Emmaline Hoffmeister were so author friendly and made my foray into publishing a fabulous experience. I'm sure you've all heard some nightmarish stories out there about how the authors have no input on anything once they sign their contracts. It was never that way with Rhemalda.
I will be forever grateful to the Hoffmeisters for seeing something of value in my little story, for being patient with this noob, and for teaching me so much during the road to publication. I wish them and their family the best and hope we will not be strangers.
Details are still to be worked out on the reversion of rights, but I've decided to carry on by myself and to self-publish.
What about you? Ever considered self-publishing? Do you have any tips?
