Well, I found out yesterday that Give the Lady a Ride is going out of print. Totally breaks my heart, but it’s a smart business move. Had I been well enough through 2012/2013 to continue pitching and promoting it, the results may have been different.
Once the cyber-distributors like Amazon and Barnes and Noble run out of their supplies, new versions will be unavailable except through me. I think Amazon will still post availability of used copies, though. I checked B&N, and they still have it available for Nook, and the Kindle version will be available through the end of February–so if ya want the electronic version, get it now!
I grew to love all the characters in this book as if I were writing about actual people. Sometimes, I admit, I pull the book down and reread certain parts of it just to reconnect with them. I’ve toyed with the idea of altering my current western romance series to be a continuation of this one just so maybe someday another pubber will pick it up and reprint it. Who knows? It could happen.
But Writing in Obedience is available for pre-order–which reminds me, if you haven’t signed up for the giveaway, now’s the time. Drawing winners will be announced Monday! I’m giving away three copies of Terry Burns’s A Writer’s Survival Guide to Getting Published to those who enter the drawing by pre-ordering Writing in Obedience.
Seeing Give the Lady a Ride go out of print so soon is a bit disheartening, but I’ll still be selling it through this site and at my speaking engagements.
And I’ll continue toying with the idea of turning it into a series and seeking another publisher for it.
