The Taste of Magic has a home

I updated my website today, so I guess I'll go ahead and announce this. I got the contract back and no one's told me to keep it a secret. Etopia Press has accepted my fantasy novel The Taste of Magic! They're a new publisher, so I'm guessing it'll be released sooner rather than later this year as an ebook. Most of the books they've published so far are romances, but they're open to a lot of genres. I like their covers.

I'm happy about that and looking forward to starting edits. I've also got more edits coming up for The Weredeer. Honestly, the best way to improve as a writer is to work with a good editor and apply what you learn to the rest of your writing.

Speaking of which, now I'm diving back in to writing Bloodhound, which is shaping up to be as long as Bell-Men.

Well Done K.C I'm very proud of you, my dear friend. Let us all know how you get on.

I've just had a look at publisher's site. The book covers look great! Can't wait to see yours.

Yay! Their covers do look nice, even the er...romance. ;)

K.C. Shaw said...

FRA--Thanks!

Jarmara--They had me fill out a cover art questionnaire, too, which was exciting.

Aaron--Yeah, I don't much love romance covers ordinarily, but at least these look well done. :)

Fantastic news, Kate! It's nice that they're open to things other than romance.

K.C. Shaw said...

Thanks! The Taste of Magic has a strong romance sub-plot, which is why they probably liked it.

Wow, great news! I haven't been around the blogosphere for a little bit, so it's terrific to stop by blogs and see news like this.

Congrats!
