The Brief Life of WEAVER’S FOLLY

Some of you may have been following the saga of my publisher, Curiosity Quills, for some time. Not long after Weaver’s Folly hit shelves in March last year, complaints about the company started going public because of a plethora of issues. I won’t rehash them here, but you can read a pretty good summary on the Writer Beware blog if you want to know the details. Authors had been complaining behind the scenes for a while by the time that blog post hit, and the issues continued to persist after. The CQ owners addressed them, sort of, and said they were planning on adjusting their business practices, including going to a (primarily) ebook only publication style. Recognizing that things were changing, and that business had been rough for a while, they offered a blanket reversion of rights to authors who wanted out.

I took it.

What does that mean for WEAVER’S FOLLY? It means it will not be in print through CQ any longer (as of the writing of this post, there’s one print copy left up on Amazon for a discounted price if you want to try to snag it Edit: My book is apparently still on Amazon at full price, which is…not right, but also not surprising. Edit edit: It’s gone now.). As for the future of the book and the rest of the planned series…that’s still up in the air. I intend to see WEAVER’S FOLLY back in print eventually, along with the subsequent books, but I don’t know yet how we’ll get there. I have several paths I could take, and I want to make sure I take the right one this time. For those who bought, read, and loved the book–thank you so, so much. It was worth it to see people find and love Alyssa and Logan and all the others. I’m so sorry that you won’t be seeing more of them yet, but trust me, they’ll be back to their shenanigans at some point.

Until then.
