Gone Publisher

“Failure is the chance to do better next time.”

It’s like Gone Girl but without the twist. So my publisher (Booktrope) is closing its doors at the end of May, after having launched almost 1000 books into the world. It was definitely a shocking and heart-wrenching announcement.

Where does that leave Dragonfly Dreams? Great question. There’s an option of republishing or just leaving it on the curbside. I’ll have to sort out all the legal terminology and tangles before making a final decision.

My warmest thoughts go out to fellow Booktropers. Here a few more takes on the upcoming disappearance of Booktrope:

  1. Very sorry to hear it. Leaves so many authors in a lurch. My first publisher was bought out by a bigger one last year, and that was transition enough. Hope things work out okay for you.

  2. That’s too bad. Is there a chance that someone will buy them? It happened to a friend of mine. I wish you the best as you untangle your situation and hopefully get your book back into print.

      We’ll see, Evelyne. I’ve had friends who’ve experienced publishers dropping them and then getting picked up…or not.

  3. That news sucked. I hope you’re able to find your way through the Booktrope mess. You have the right idea in taking your time to evaluate the situation.

  4. I am sorry to hear this.
    I wish you something even better with your book.
    Sending light and grace as you make your way through this news and change.
