MOURNING BARBOUR


Well, due to the economic times, i got an email from my editor at Barbour. They are closing their mystery bookclub line. I mourned yesterday. Today, I'm back to the writing and planning stage. My remaining two books, Candy-Coated Secrets and Chocolate-Covered Crime will still be published because they are under contract. After that, I'll have to move in another direction. Sad, but a fact of life in this industry.

Cindy, that sucks. Glad the two other books will be coming out. I'm hearing that it's getting even harder to get inside some houses doors with the economic times.

Hopefully you can get those other ideas under contract.

Hang in there, Cynthia. It is sad this is happening, but better things may come your way. There is a silver lining to every dark cloud.

Cindy,
I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how you loved writing for that line, but I'm sure with your experience, you'll find another publisher. May God bless you in your endeavors.

I hope you can find another publisher. As you saw from my blog I loved your first book!! I rarely go on and on about a book and yours I could not put down. Lisa

That really sucks. I'm glad they could't rescind on your other two. And like someone else said, you're already published, so you've got that going for you to find another publihser. Everythings in God's will...and timing.
