Dreamspinner Press owes me nearly thirty thousand dollars. They have not paid me, despite being contractually obligated to do so.
Given that, and a myriad of other issues with the publisher, I have decided to request the rights back for every book I have with them. I will republish them all, but it's going to take time.
What you need to do:
--If you have bought books of mine through the Dreamspinner Press website, go ahead and download/back them up to make sure you retain your copies. If you bought elsewhere--Amazon, for example, your copy will be fine.
--This means the preorders for Heartsong and Brothersong will be canceled. You will get refunded, no matter where you bought it from. Or, (and this might be the better, more proactive option), you can cancel the preorder yourself to get your refund instead of waiting. Once the rights for these books have reverted to me, I will reupload them to order. Given that this will take time, I can't promise the release date for Heartsong will still be September 24. Please don't give me shit over this. I will be working as hard as I can to get it out as soon as I can. I don't expect there to be too long of a delay, but one is possible.
--Audiobooks will stay as they are, given they are under contract (as are foreign translations). Those will not be going away.
I know you'll have questions. I do too! But please give me time to figure this all out, as I have no idea what I'm doing. It sucks, but that's the way it is.
More news when I have it!
