Answer: It means an author is both self-published and traditionally published by a publishing house. That’s what I became in March, when I signed with Northern Lake Publishing, a small press specializing in ebooks, mystery and suspense in particular. Am I happy with the results? Oh yeah.

NLP has reissued six books in my Romancing the Guardians series under their imprint. Since then, all six books have gained traction on Amazon. They still have a long way to go but I’m very pleased with their improving status.

In early June, NLP will also re-release book 7, Tempting Adam, currently still self-published by yours truly.

Set in Kenya, this exotic romance reunites former lovers from different cultural backgrounds who wish only to improve the lives of people living in a drought-stricken land. As love reignites between them, deadly enemies may drive them apart for good.

Bargain priced for a limited time on Amazon.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, er, in ye old recliner, I am working on book 8, A Mighty Chieftain.  As always with the farflung settings of these books, my research has been copious, but it will be worth while in the end.

Speaking of the end, book 8 will conclude the Guardians’ epic adventures. At least for now.

  3. Congrats. My arrangement with Palmetto Publishing Group is a hybrid situation. My first publisher and I had a serious falling out when the traditional contract promises faltered and nearly wrecked my book’s release. When they wanted me to pay to publish my second after promising to publish my sequel under my contract I sought legal advice and was able to get out from my contract and regain publishing rights. Palmetto stepped up and I republished my first book under them and corrected several issues in the book that the first publisher’s editor failed to do, and right after that my sequel came out as promised. Though as a hybrid publisher I am investing, I am reaping the royalties I never saw with the first. And, I control my “publishing rights” which is my leverage this time. They are also providing full book offset printing of my books and I no longer have to suffer with POD quality issues either. I highly recommend Palmetto Publishing Group. Don’t run from the new hybrid options that exist, just do your homework and due diligence.
