Many of the authors are excited to be included in these special print collections. We have so many talented writers who deliver such wonderful novellas, and often fall short of the print requirements. Also, not everbody has enough material with us for a solo anthology, so we decided it was time to let these stories shine in print as themed books. So perhaps the next time you attend RT, NJRW, or any other conference or festival, you'll see one of these books and congratulate the author(s) on a job well done.
After Surrender, we have plans to roll out an all-shifter collection featuring Skylar Sinclair, Sapphire Phelan, and Jude Mason (I previewed the cover - it's AMAZING). In the works, too, is an all BBW collection which will feature Meg Winston and Sammie Jo Moresca. In 2009, we have a special project in the works that will be revealed very shortly.
Another thing I am pleased to announce is that starting this summer select titles will be released simultaneously in eBook and print. We've managed to do it in the past on a sporadic schedule with Piers' books and the Coming Together volumes, but it's been a goal of mine to get the more anticipated titles out there at once so readers who prefer print won't have to wait so long. We are only at the stage where we can do a few at a time, but maybe one day it will be standard with all novel releases. Your support as readers helps, and we are grateful for that.
For now, sim-pub releases include forthcoming titles by L.E. Bryce, Marie Rochelle, Mychael Black and Shayne Carmichael, M. Christian, and Brenna Lyons. Also, when the fourth installment of Eliza Gayle's Pentacles of Magick series is release, the entire collection will come out in print, too. It's going to be a busy summer, hope you'll join us.
By the way, the subject header is from a Cheap Trick song. ;)
