Return of Rights and What Happens Next

I've recently learned that my publisher is closing up shop next year. This means that soon Wolf Creek and Spar will no longer be available. Within the next 90 days or so, I should receive the rights to the works returned to me and I'm left wondering what happens next.

Do I self-publish?

Do I resubmit to another publisher in the hopes that they will pick up a story that's already been published?

In either case, I need the return of rights documentation. Then I need to see about the rights to the final copy verses the original and the cover art.

This isn't the firt time I've had to deal with a return or rights when a publisher closes, but it is the first time that it's for published works. I hate to think of my two novels disappearing from the shelves never to be seen again. However, I am dreading that will be their fate. Either way, if you want a copy of their, pick it up now before it is no longer available.

Gray Christmas By Lisabet Sarai

I'm a fan of erotica, especially when it isn't just the run of the mill erotica. Lisabet always finds something interesting to write about. This time it's an erotica featuring two senior characters embracing their sexuality. You're never too old to enjoy yourself or someone else.

Short Blurb

Widowed author Emma Granger has reconciled herself to spending Christmas Eve in snowy Boston, with a bottle of wine and her cat. A crash from the apartment above overturns her plans for a quiet evening at home. When she investigates, she meets Nick North, an energetic iconoclast with a gray ponytail, a silver earring and bright blue eyes that kindle feelings she’d thought were gone forever.

Excerpt

A bit of gray frizz peeked out from the neckline of his tee. I wondered if he was hairy all over, then blushed when I realized he was looking at me. Did he know what I was thinking? God, I hoped not! How embarrassing it would be if he realized a horny old grandmother was lusting after his body!
I nibbled at my cheese, glancing out the window so I wouldn’t have to meet his eyes. “It’s snowing harder.”
“Good thing we’re warm and cozy together in here.” Something in his tone made alarm bells ring. When I turned my attention to him, though, he was studying his cracker.
“So—um—what about you? Are you married?” Might as well take the bull by the horns.
“Was.” He wiped his elegant fingers on his napkin. “She left me for a younger man. About ten years ago.”
“Ouch! That must have hurt.”
“Yeah, especially since I was in the hospital recovering from heart surgery at the time.” His manner was nonchalant, as though we were still discussing the weather. My chest grew tight in sympathy. “She was a selfish bitch.”
“I think you’re being too kind.”
“I’m lucky she’s gone. I’m better off without her.”
“I think I’d have to agree.”
“Though I have to say she was great in bed.”
For that, I had no reply. I fumbled with a piece of flatbread, trying to hide my confusion, but I could feel my cheeks were flaming red.

“What about your husband? Was he a good lover?” I couldn’t look at him. I knew there’d be a saucy grin on those enticing lips, and a brash twinkle in those eyes. How could I explain about Tom and me? All the great years we had together, so many erotic adventures, and then the pale, bland final decade, when he’d lost interest in fucking.
Not that it had been his fault. Between menopause and arthritis, sex simply stopped being fun for me. He hated knowing that penetration caused me pain, so he pulled away, and God help me, I was almost relieved. But now I missed the days when we both loved my body, almost as much as I missed Tom himself.
I could hardly share all that with a stranger, though.

Contemplating non-fiction

One month into my maternity leave from work -and writing- I find my attention wandering away from Safe Word. It's in a state that still needs a lot of work and dedicated time to revise. So I'm not even considering touching in when I have a minute or 5 when I'm not looking after a newborn or entertaining a toddler.

Instead, I find my mind wandering on a couple of non-fiction topics that seem book worthy.

Idea #1

I'm fascinated by how the history of disease and health has shaped social behavior. Most recently, the outbreaks of Ebola in Africa prompted people to stop shaking hands. Through out history socially accepted behaviors have changed in response to disease. Take hand washing by doctors. NPR had a great piece on how hand washing was established in hospitals after it was discovered it could reduce pregnancy-related deaths. Going from cadaver work to obstetrics exams is a sure way of spreading potentially fatal infections.

Idea #2

Being throw back into the newborn stage means that I am once again nursing every 2-3 hours. I know far more about the techniques and mechanics of breastfeeding in an effort to cope with persistent pain -again. I've also read a number of articles about the different norms around breastfeeding throughout the ages. While breast milk is currently undergoing a resurgence in popularity, for many years breast milk was considered to be inferior to formula or solid food. I have no doubt there is a connection to the male-dominated medical industry that once strapped woman down and gassed them to give birth. It would be interesting to write a history of breastfeeding from the stone age to modern day.

PS. A quick Amazon search finds numerous books on idea #2 but not many on idea #1.

Coming up with an idea or two is the easy part. Research and writing are much more challenging. Who knows? Maybe it's just the distraction I need in my very limited free time when I should be sleeping.

A Peanut is born

After waiting an extra week and 2 days, lil Mr. Peanut decided it was time to make his appearance. From first contraction to delivery, in three short hours I had my son in my arms. There were a few complications, but we are home now.

Thank you all to those who have helped me spread the word about my other new release (Spar). This blog will get a little quiet while we adjust to being a family of four. When the time is right, I will get back to working on Safe Word and the sequel to Wolf Creek.

Until then, be well and read a few good books for me.
