I know I’ve been blogging about it for a while now. For quite some time, I’ve been working with Crimson Frost Books to publish my first non-self-published work, “Embers of Eros.” I’ve had few updates on this issue and for good reason. They have not gotten back to me in any capacity since May 2016. Before then, they sent me some paperwork. However, it was paperwork I had already filled out months before. It’s not a good sign to say the least.
Now I don’t know if there are other factors involved. There may be shakeups with the editors or something of that nature. I understand that to some degree, but I’ve had this book pending with them for such a long time now that I’m starting to consider withdrawing it. I may be new to the industry, but it shouldn’t take THIS long to refine a manuscript that they’ve had for over a year now. It’s not like I sent them something on the scale of the last Harry Potter book.
It would be a major step back if I withdrew my manuscript from them. I may end up having to self-publish “Embers of Eros” once more. I’m hoping to avoid that because I don’t think I’ll build an audience that way. I’ll start feeling around for other small publishers, but I’m really starting to lose faith in Crimson Frost.
