I'm excited to announce that I have just signed with Warren Publishing! My book will be released in the spring of 2020, so that is when you can expect to receive your copy if you preordered one.
This is a hybrid publisher. For those who don't know what that means: a hybrid publisher acts like a traditional publisher and has the same type of distribution and processes, but I am required to invest in some of the publishing costs up front. In exchange, I get higher royalties than I would traditionally receive and better creative control over my book.
This is a really good option for authors like me. Most of the large traditional publishers require you to have an agent and/or a huge following, and they also take both your literary rights and most of the profit. So I am happy with my decision! Warren Publishing accepts less than 20% of the submissions it receives and is focused on producing high-quality books. They have been in business for over 30 years.
Thank you to everyone who supported me in my preorders, as the funds will allow me to invest in this book and get it to market. Thank you especially to Beth Crosby, an editor who stumbled across my work, for giving me an introduction to this publisher!
I will send another update when I have more specifics on the release date. In the meantime, I will continue to post on my blog as I am able and to update you on other books. I have another one that is almost done, and I will likely release a book of poetry in the future. Be sure to sign up for my mailing list (click here) to get updates, as I will only use the Publishizer platform to send updates about Halfway There.
