So a couple hours after I posted about seeing my book up for pre-order on Amazon, Harlequin announced that it was closing the line. No more Love Inspired Historical.
I try to tell myself that those two events are not connected, but I still feel a bit guilty.
My subconscious: SEE? What did I tell you? It’s a hoax!
Me: No, not really. They still intend to publish my book in January. They’re going to stop publishing these books in June.
Ego: So, what you’re saying is… once my book is out, there’s no point in publishing more? They can’t top it?
Me: No. The line probably isn’t as successful as they’d hoped.
My subconscious: Which is All My Fault!
This doesn’t mean that I’ll stop writing. It does mean I’ll stop sending inspirational historical stories to Harlequin. I’m not sure what will happen to Geoff and Lia’s story, but I will find it a home somewhere. I usually vacillate between loving and hating a WIP. This is the first story I’ve written that I loved from start to finish. That either means I’m delusional or it’s actually a good story. (Well, those aren’t mutually exclusive. Could be it’s a good story and I’m delusional.)
I’m not about to say “The End” in regards to my writing. The story goes on.
