A Fond Farewell to Burning Willow Press

OctExile2017Following the announcement from my publisher Burning Willow Press that they are closing down on 31st December this year, my epic fantasy novels are once again being taken down from sale. This will be sometime after October 10th. I’ve walked this road before. Writing is a difficult career and publishing is a precarious industry. You either bounce back or give up.

Fortunately, this is not an ending but a transition. My elves and their human and animal friends will be in stasis for a while but there will be another incarnation. My UK publisher Dilliebooks has offered to give my characters a new home.93NovCarolBrowneGatewaytoElvendomfront28129

So for now I can share my current book covers here while they are still on sale for another couple of days. And I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Edd and Kindra Sowder and everyone connected with Burning Willow Press for all their help, support and friendship during my four years with them as a contracted author. I wish them all the best of luck for the future and I will be forever grateful for the opportunities they gave me. I learned a lot about the publishing industry. I saw my manuscripts turned into beautiful books with stunning cover art. I made friends with some fascinating and very talented authors. It was a great adventure.

Or perhaps the adventure is just beginning.

    Sorry to hear about Burning Willow Press, Carol. But like they say when one (publisher’s) door closes, another (publisher’s) door opens. All the best with Dilliebooks, my friend!

    It is very sad to hear that BWP is closing its doors but your characters – and you – will survive to be read another day! You know that they want to carry on with their adventures, so I am sure that Dilliebooks will give them the opportunity to do so, and I look forward to seeing your new publications very soon.

    You are a lady of class, Carol. I applaud you.
