Writing & Book Update

If you caught my last update, you saw that PERMANENT INK and OFF THE ICE had been temporarily removed from sale while the rights reverted back to me and Avon Gale. Good news: they’re now available to purchase again! I’ll post the buy links below, but just FYI, if you bought either of these titles last year, we haven’t made any editorial changes to either story, so there’s no need to re-purchase.

PERMANENT INK (Art & Soul #1)

Amazon * B&N * Kobo * iTunes

OFF THE ICE (Hat Trick #1)

Amazon * B&N * Kobo * iTunes

As for the rest of both series, Avon and I will be self-publishing the subsequent titles. GOALIE INTERFERENCE (Hat Trick #2) is tentatively slated for a mid-summer release. NECESSARY ART (Art & Soul #2) will likely be released in late 2018/early 2019. As soon as we have more specific dates in mind, I’ll post another update.

Update: Riptide Publishing Titles

Avon Gale and I have requested and received the reversion of rights for both our Hat Trick and Art & Soul series from Riptide Publishing.

We’ll be rereleasing OFF THE ICE and PERMANENT INK as soon as feasibly possible and intend to self-publish the remaining books in both series. We’re currently unsure what will happen with regards to the PERMANENT INK audiobook, but there’ll be more info to come as and when we have it available.

Asking to dissolve our contracts wasn’t a decision we made lightly, but as a Latinx person who writes characters of color, Riptide no longer feels like the right publishing fit for me or my work. We hope that in the future, Riptide will become the inclusive publisher they intended to be from the beginning. We also hope that readers will please consider continuing to support Riptide authors. I fully understand the current situation is complicated and emotionally charged, but it truly hurts my heart to think these authors who worked so hard might suffer through no fault of their own.

Thank you.
