Fun moments in small press publishing: the publisher of my first novel is closing its doors at the end of the month. All rights revert to me, so I think I’ll self-publish that one. In the meantime, my shiny new publisher is forging ahead with the book due out in November, which takes the sting out a little.
OTOH, I was just on the phone with a beta reader talking about a book I'm drafting, and she cried when she talked about my ending. :-)
