Leisure Books, Part Two

Posted by joelasutherland on September 4, 2010 at 3:38 PM

I came here intending to share a few pieces of good news that I've been meaning to write about the past few weeks, but I was hit with a cold, hard slap as soon as I saw my previous blog post. Back in July my excitement was building for the release of the mass market paperback edition of Frozen Blood, with a beautiful new cover and many edits that made the book much stronger. I was one happy dude, to be sure.


And then the news suddenly broke of Dorchester Publishing's decision to go all digital, with the news later being modified to digital and trade paperback. This was then followed by the news that Don D'Auria, my editor and the man responsible for Dorchester's horror line, had been let go. I'm speeding through all this and leaving some details put since I'm assuming most people reading this are already familiar with the situation. If you're not, Google is your friend.


So where do I stand in all of this? I'm still not really sure. I've been told the e-book of Frozen Blood is still coming out this November, and that a trade paperback will be in stores six months later. The House on Forks Road, my second contracted horror novel with Leisure, is similarly being bumped back six months. But other than that I've received very little information or updates from Dorchester and am not getting answers to some big questions. So I'm in a "wait and see" position -- I wish I could tell you more, but that's all I know right now.


Many Leisure authors have decided to leave the company and look for new publishing homes, and I wish them all the best. I also wish Don all the best and hope he finds a new home soon. The rumours are all true, folks: Don is one of the best editors in the industry and an absolute pleasure to work with. I just wish we could have at least seen my first Leisure release through to the end together. I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again soon.

I really adored reading your blog. It was extremely very much wrote and straightforward. Unlike to different blogs I have read which are really not that great. I value your hard work here. People who read extensively fill their mind with a lot of facts, thoughts and general information. If you want to write more articles in the future, you must cultivate the habit of reading.Basically I'm a writer I would like to share my website here ( ) and sometimes I wait for your post to get more this type of blogs. A good blog always comes-up with new and exciting information and while reading I have feel that this blog is really have all those quality that qualify a blog to be a good one.
