A New Beginning

LakeUnionPublishingImage-V343774130-newIn January, I listed 6 Musings on Writing, one of which was ‘each year marks a new beginning‘. Well, as it turns out, January truly did mark a new beginning, one that I can now tell you about, because the contract is signed.

My third novel, Time & Regret has been taken on by Lake Union Publishing. As you can imagine, I am more than excited!

The folks at Lake Union have been amazing, both professionally and personally. Time & Regret has already been through their developmental edit process and will soon head into copy edit. The objective is to release it in late August or early September.

Many thanks to Carol Bodensteiner who connected me with Lake Union, to Jodi Warshaw the acquisitions editor at Lake Union, and to Jenny Quinlan of Historical Editorial who has done such terrific editing work on Unravelled, Lies Told in Silence, and Time & Regret.

  1. What a delight to see this announcement Mary. Congratulations and best of luck as you embark on this new relationship. We are so happy for you!

  2. Well done, great news. I look forward to your reflections in due course after publication on the process and outcomes particularly about how much you are asked to change your book for third party publication.

    1. I can answer one of those questions right away, Alexander – very little material change to the manuscript. Lots of small stuff like word choices, trimming here and there, removing repetitive words and so on. Will let you know how the rest of the process goes. And many thanks for your good wishes.

  3. Being a huge fan of HF, I wish everyone would just keep writing and I think good things will happen! Congrats! I have come across a dark historical fiction called Ice Whispers, my favorite thing about it is that I am learning so much about the time and what was happening then. Stuff you think you know and you sometimes just don’t have a clue. K. Willow is the author, it’s fantastic.

  4. Hi there, just back from holidays, so am a little late but I wanted to say congratulations on the book publishing venture….
