The Eternal Rose

Just FYI —

I love Gail Dayton’s series originally published by Luna. The Compass Rose and The Barbed Rose are the first two books. So I was very, very bummed when Luna decided not published the third book in the trilogy — The Eternal Rose.

Luckily Juno Books picked up the third and it’s out next month! You can pre-order it at Amazon.com now.

Just spreading the word.  I already have my copy ordered. :)

  1. Can I rant about publishers who do this? Drop a person midway through a series?

    Even if the publisher’s losing money on the series and sales aren’t good enough (whatever that means), the fans of the series — even if there’s only one — deserve to read it to its conclusion, especially if it was pitched as a three-book series, for example.

    Maybe we need some new publishing models or deals where it’s okay to walk in with a three-book series and to get a commitment on all three being published. What would happen if it takes three books for this author to get wider notice? Isn’t that a risk worth taking, especially if that wider notice demands a second (or more) print run?

    But in the meantime, kudos to Juno for picking up where someone else stepped back.


  2. I’ll have to look for those books :) I haven’t read any of them yet.


  3. Erin — If you like fantasy, you’ll probably like these books. :)

    Susan — I don’t know the circumstances behind what happened. As a fan of the books, I know I was all meh :( when I heard about it.


  4. Hi,
    I was just reading your blog and thought you may be interested in a new site we’ve just started for authors. If you have the time, the address is http://www.feelswrite.com
    Thank you.


  5. I like well written books :) Genre doesn’t matter all that much to me. I’ll read anything that’ll grab my attention and/or imagination.

    Thanks for the recommendation!
