Walkabout Wednesday... Your Questions Answered

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.
(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 30:

"Why can't I find your other books anywhere?"
  • All of my older titles are currently "out of print." There is a chance, however, they might be republished.
"Do you have any copies of your other books that you could sell me?
  • I only have my own personal copies. If I sold those, I wouldn't have any and that would make me very, very sad.
    "Is Persephone in Courting Miss Lancaster the Persephone that Seeking Persephone is about?
    • Yup. Seeking Persephone is Adam and Persephone's story! Aahhh... I love that book!
    "How did you get to be so awesome?"
    • Okay. No one actually asked that one.
    "Did you know that someone is selling a used copy of one of your old books for over $500 on Amazon?"
    • Yeah. I saw that. Don't... I repeat DON'T... buy it. No book that isn't hundreds of years old and extremely rare is worth that much money. Plus--I don't get a single dime of that sale price and that's just wrong! So, be patient. The old books will probably be republished and you can get them for a reasonable price (and with fewer typos!).
    "Are you working on anything new?"
    • Yes I am. In addition to a couple other things, I am working on a brand new Regency-era romance about one of the characters you met in Courting Miss Lancaster. But which one?!?! Now that is the question!

    Today is the last day to enter March's giveaway. The fab prize is an "I Need Friends Friday" t-shirt!!!

lol, I love it! You made a INFF t-shirt!

That's so crazy (in a good way, I promise) someone is selling one of your books for $500. Maybe that person understands your gifts better than the rest of us and knows this particular book will be the only one to survive the apocalyptic era.

Shantel said...

You just crack me up! And I am going to need one of those T-shirts!

Annette Lyon said...

So how DID you get to be so awesome?

Elizabeth Morgan said...

That is awesome that books are being considered for reprint.

Rebecca Irvine said...

You are worth it, though!

Kim Coates said...

So excited to hear they may be getting republished. I really want to read Seeking Persephone.

Aubrey said...

I have a few of your other books, but I wish I'd bought them all when I had the chance. If just one sells for $500, can you imagine what the complete set would be worth?!? (By the way, I wouldn't part with my copy of Seeking Persephone for any amount--that's how awesome it is.)

Karlene said...

I have a copy of Seeking Persephone that I'd sell for $500. (But only because 1) I need the money; and 2) it will be back in print before too long.)

Karlene said...

Actually, now that I think of it $1500 is the going rate now.

Peggy Urry said...

Whatever happened with Christopher Nobody? I really want to finish reading it! :-) I am going to send a msg to your publisher!

Sarah M Eden said...

Hi Peggy! I have plans to work on Christopher Nobody this summer (it needs some work) and if I can get it to a point where it's ready, I'll start shopping for agents. Wish me luck!

Cheri Chesley said...

Love it! Just finished Courting Miss Lancaster and found myself wishing I could read Adam and Persephone's story--good thing you wrote it already. I feel so behind that I only just discovered you. :)

But I will try to be patient. And I'm pretty dang sure I know which character you're writing about from Courting Miss Lancaster!

So, any news about republication? March was so long ago. What's the status?
