Resplendence Publishing Closing

Hi Everyone,

Just in case anyone missed my previous post about this…

Resplendence Publishing has recently announced they will be closing at the end of November 2018.

Please make sure you have backed up all titles purchased through their website before the end of November. While, as I understand it, you should still be able to access any titles you purchased through other vendors, I’d advise backing them up just in case.

I’ve listed all of my titles which will be affected below, to make it as easy as possible for you to check if you have them backed up. There are 39 altogether (including titles I’ve already regained the rights to / released new editions of).

New editions of all of the soon to be out-of-print titles will be released independently as quickly as possible, but it will take some time. Your patience is appreciated.

November Newsletter – Good News and Bad News

Hi Everyone!

Happy November!

October was an interesting month. Not using social media for the entire month was odd, but not as much of a challenge as I actually thought it would be. It certainly helped me get my brain back to a more even keel!

Moving forward, I’ll be checking in on social media every week or so, but I still won’t be on there a lot. So, the best way to contact me is either e-mail or a comment on this blog.

Okay, so – two big things for November…

First the good news…

Once a Brat (Kinky Cupid 1) is out and available now from Amazon, Kobo, Apple Books, Nook, Smashwords and Payhip.

14. Once a Brat

Experienced dominant Marcus has a stalker. On the plus side, the boy who follows him around every time he visits his local leather club is both gorgeous and a self-professed submissive. On the other hand the boy is also inexperienced, bratty and liable to drive Marcus insane within his constant chatter.

Bret fell head over heels with Marcus the moment he saw him. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to get Marcus’s attention and prove his own worth as a submissive. Just because he isn’t a traditional sub, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a lot to offer a dom who can handle his quirks.

When Marcus gives in and agrees to do a scene with Bret, sparks soon fly. But, will it be a case of once a brat, always a brat? 

Please note – This is the second edition of this title. The cover and publisher have changed, but the text has not been altered.

I know it’s a bit of an odd time of year to release a Valentine’s themed title, but I really wanted to get it back out before the third book in the series – Sticks and Stones – comes out next February.

And, on to the Bad News…

Resplendence Publishing have recently announced that they will be closing down.

If you have bought any titles directly from their website, please make sure you download and back up those titles by the end of November. After that date, you will not be able to access the library / bookshelf there. While this shouldn’t affect any titles you purchased through other retailers, I’d advise you to back them up too, just to be safe.

All the titles I published through Resplendence Publishing will be effected – 39 in all. (This includes their editions of titles which I have since reclaimed and re-released.) I’ve made a page with a list of these titles here, to make it as easy as possible for you to check.

As of December 1st, all the titles which I haven’t previously reclaimed and re-released will go out of print. I’ll get them tweaked, re-edited and back out as soon as I can, but it will probably take a while. Thank you for your understand and your patience.

While this will alter the order in which I intended to reclaim and re-issue titles from other publishers, it shouldn’t alter the timeline for my releasing new work. New books will be my first priority. Re-releases will fit in around them.

And I think that’s it for now 🙂

Hope you have an amazing November!
