Creative Differences

This has been a rough week for me. If you saw my previous post, you might have wondered why I had posted such a sad poem and picture. The Joan Crawford book that I have coming out has been a labor of love that I have been working on for two years. I am financially and emotionally wrapped up in this book and I want this book to be presented in the best possible light since it will have my name on it. I have been struggling with my publisher over the past two weeks over creative differences and we both have decided to part ways. This means the book will not be published with this publisher for the spring of 2007. Although this seems like not the best news in the world, it IS for the best. The book WILL still be published but with another publisher the way I want it to be published. I do not have a concrete date for when the book will be published with a new publisher. I apologize to everyone that had already pre-ordered the book; the publisher will refund your money.

My life has been a series of tests that I have had to take ... I have failed a few of those tests but I have also passed many of them as well. Trust me on this one, this is one "test" that I plan on passing in a major way.

This ain't my first time at the rodeo boys!:-)

Stay tuned...

Oh, that's too bad, but it is best to have the book published YOUR way than in a way you wouldn't be happy with. I'm sure it will be published soon and will be much better. You already had a lot of buzz around the book and interest. That alone will attract a new publisher very quickly!
