My notice was delivered to Ridan’s offices yesterday at 10:59am according to the post office. Accordingly my obligation under the terms of my contract are now satisfied. My publication rights for all the Share books will revert to me on or before November 6th.
That means Captain’s Share and Owner’s Share are going to be delayed again. I need to re-publish the first four before I can publish the next two. I’m already working with cover artists to streamline that process and I’ll be giving each book a bit of a scrub up before releasing. I already have an editor working on them to try to keep the delays to a minimum.
I wish I could say “They’ll be out by Christmas” but right now, without covers and without a clean edit on what amounts to about a million words? Yeah. Not something I’ll commit to.
Have patience. I’ll get these out as soon as possible. I just don’t know what’s possible yet.
