Sweet Jesus! The Author is Getting Her Rights Back!

In other words, thank you guys for your support throughout this adventure. It means a lot. And there’s a lot to do in the upcoming months, now!
(And if this ever becomes a graphic novel, I’d like to reassure that I won’t be drawing it, I intend to hire someone actually competent)

  • Okay, the frame where March’s head is off the panel is my favorite. Did you really draw these? Love it! So what will getting the rights back mean for you and future adventures of Island and March? I’m afraid I am a total newb as regards anything in the publishing world.

    • I did draw them. I love to draw, but I’m getting rusty because I don’t do it enough.

      Basically, getting my rights back comes with some drawbacks (For example, I’m not sure the audible page will remain up with its reviews, and I’ll have to fork quite a bit of money to republish Spotless and Beating Ruby’s audiobook versions), but I’m free to republish as self-publications Spotless and Beating Ruby anyway I want, determine the pricing -I want to lower it or make the books free- and generally do what I want with the franchise.

      The problem I had was that I was stuck with Amazon even as they’d abandoned the series, so they had complete control . . . over something they’d do nothing with. My hands were tied, even as I intended to finish the series. For example, even if I was able to hire a graphic artist, I didn’t have the authorization to publish a comic book version of Spotless.
      Now, for example, if I want to explore that option, I can. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Yeah, Camilla, I’m really glad you got your SPOTLESS rights back from Amazon. Goodness knows, they weren’t doing much, if anything at all, to promote your series. I look forward to more outstanding things from you in the future — congratulations again! (And by the way, your drawings are great — good golly, woman, you’re simply loaded with talent!)

  • Yep, I love your drawings ( was always been a bit jealous of those of you who could draw more than a straight line) and I like that March’s head is outside of frame too.
    He has a great neck tho’ – sorta makes me wanna undress it.
    And…what’s this about new editions of Spotless and Beating Ruby??
    Ah, jeebus rice – too much, too early – need more coffee..

    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, since I’m getting my rights back, I’ll need to re-publish Spotless and Beating Ruby. The books will reamain the same (might do some minor additional edits on Beating Ruby, details) but the covers will change.

  • I was wondering what was happening with this series! I first discovered it on audible (and absolutely LOVED it!) and when ever I remembered to go back to check if there was a follow up to the first Spotless book there was nothing new. Today when I was on audible (re-listening to it for the 10th time) spotless didn’t even come up at all and I was freaked out and went searching through the interwebs for an explanation. Glad to see you have your rights back because I’ve been anticipating the sequel! Even more excited to see a third one on the way!

    Just bought the kindle version and can’t wait to read it! Do you think you will put out a downloadable audiobook version in the future? I’d really love to hear the audiobook because Amy McFadden was really awesome! I was considering buying the CD but its not really practical because I only get listen to audiobooks (on my phone) when I’m commuting and during lunch breaks.

  • I too love the audio books as they allow me to enjoy your work while doing some of my own. I’ve been sharing with my friends when they are with me. Needless to say they get hooked pretty quickly so they go purchase your books themselves. Now we are all waiting for #3. I love the idea of graphic novels and would happily add them to our collection! Your work is refreshing and fun and I look forward to whatever is next.

  • That would be an amazing project! I’d buy it! I could really see your book transfer well to comic. I’m sure I would laugh the whole way like I did your books and enjoy every minute of it. I’d even do a bunch of fanart for it!
