I've signed a four book deal with Luminis Books for the entire Sententia series, including Lost in Thought!
What does this mean for the books? They will have support, professional support!! You'll be able to find them in your local libraries and bookstores, or if you don't find them, you can ask to stock them! They will be released in hardcover, followed by paperback.
But Lost in Thought is already available? It is. And it will continue to be, at least as an ebook, until approximately
Will the story be the same? Basically, yes. There may be some changes, including some minor name changes, but they won't be extensive.
What about the sequel? Currently, we’re discussing a release date in Fall 2014, tentatively October. That, I know, is a long time for early readers, and for that I apologize. In fact, this length of time between the original release of LiT and the new release time frame for Sententia two was the. hardest. part. of my decision to sign with the publisher. But eventually I concluded that signing with Luminis was the best option for me and for the future of the Sententia series. I am sorry for the wait it will cause for early readers, but I like to believe it will be worth it. I hope you'll stick with me and will think so too! If you are a blogger/reviewer, it may be possible to add you to the advance reader list for the sequel. Feel free to contact me about this at any time.
And finally, here it is, the fulfillment of a little dream I've had for years now: the announcement in Publisher's Marketplace!
