The end of an era...


An era is ten years and Amber Quill Press was in business a little longer than that. And I'm gonna miss 'em like crazy. - Trace, Laura, Karin - love you guys.

AQP was more than my publisher, they were part of my family, but tonight, at midnight, the shutters go down, the website and all the books will pass into the land of Remember When? and--

Hey, wait just a minute here. I'm not going anywhere. :)

My books will be temporarily unavailable, but they'll be making a comeback. The Peninsula Heights and Hennessey Falls series are in the very capable hands of MLR Press with It's Complicated to make a reappearance sometime in late April. Others are with Loose Id who want me to revise and add scenes to turn some into longer books. The shorter books may be reissued as collections, although no definite decisions as yet. I'm currently revising The Cop And The Drifter (m/m) and it's definitely benefitting from my editor's suggestions. And Reincarnation will be expanded to include the sequel I never got around to writing.

The Amethyst Cove series I share with KC Kendricks, I intend to self-publish. KC has made me beautiful new covers, so I have no excuse not to. I just have to take a deep breath and DO IT! The two other series I share with KC--The Escort and The Ghost At The B&B will also be returning and maybe as full length novels. At the moment, they're at the end of a long list of To Be Decided.

WHERE'S MICHELLE was my very first published book and the cover artist was Trace Edward Zaber. When that publisher vanished into history and some of the former authors brought AQP into being, Caitlyn Willows bought the cover from Trace and gifted it to me. It was such a nice thing to do, but then Caitlyn (or Catherine as some know her) is a very nice person.

  1. It's a sad day for the authors for sure. I was only with them since 2008, so not as long as you, but they were a huge part of my life and my writing and it's sad. I've managed to contract 3 stories with Loose Id myself. There may be more. And I may self publish too, but we'll see.

    Good luck with your future endeavors, I wish you much success
