I’ve signed a book deal with David Pomerico of 47North, Amazon Publishing’s science fiction, fantasy and horror imprint, for a new edition of my dystopian novel A Calculated Life.
How sweet does that sound? I can barely believe it.
The 47North team is based in Seattle and over this summer they will create a new cover for my novel, copy-edit and proofread the manuscript, including changing the text to American spellings (!), and release the new edition in mid-September 2013.
The original edition of A Calculated Life, with British English spellings and the great Mack Manning cover, will be available until the release of the 47North edition.
I’ve read some excellent feedback online from authors about their working relationships with Amazon Publishing and I can’t wait to get started. So far they have been lovely to work with!
Just to recap: I launched my self-published eBook edition of A Calculated Life in November 2012, my print-on-demand in February 2013.
The email I received from David Pomerico, offering to include A Calculated Life on 47North’s list, was totally unexpected. It’s a mystery to me how my novel came to his attention. But it did! And now that I have a publisher, I can spend more time writing!
Thank you to everyone who has read my book and offered encouragement during my self-publishing odyssey. The learning curve has been steep but I’ve loved the challenge.
