Avon Gale and I have requested and received the reversion of rights for both our Hat Trick and Art & Soul series from Riptide Publishing.
PERMANENT INK has been republished and is available at all the usual e-tailers. Currently, we intend to self-publish the remaining books in the Art & Soul series. OFF THE ICE and the remainder of the Hat Trick series have been contracted by Carina Press, and OFF THE ICE will be rereleased in March 2019 with the remaining two titles to be published later in the year.
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.
