I'm happy to share that I signed a contract with Wild Ink Publishing for my new Upper MG novel, SURVIVOR MOUNTAIN. It will be released in 2025. :star2

This novel was orphaned when Hurn Publishing collapsed, so naturally I was a bit more cautious this time around. The literary attorney I hired to help me was encouraging though, and felt that Wild Ink is on track to be a successful company. Her opinion was based on Wild Ink's fair-minded contract, and on their website, credible staff, and multiple income streams compared to other small presses she has helped clients navigate over the past few decades.

Wild Ink Publishing is a small start-up, with a romance imprint (Conquest Publishing), and a kidlit, poetry, and anthology imprint (Wild Ink). They have a self-publishing side too, which offers editing, layout, and other services, but those books will not be released under their imprints.

Here is a link to the book blurb and my bio, in case you're curious. :)
