After much consideration, and after much input from my adoring fans (ala my friends, my wife, and my mom), I’ve decided to part ways with Gardenia Press. The situation just wasn’t right for me. In fact, I don’t think it was right for me since the beginning.
I don’t want to sound arrogant (hmmm) but I always thought Nathaniel needed a little more exposure than Gardenia could offer. I’m sure every novelist feels this way when they publish with a small press (with the exception of Literary writers, I’m sure, who probably feel a sense of pride that only 3 people read their book).
I’ve already sent out Nathaniel to Daw books. I’ve come really close with them in the past, so hopefully with the new edits, a kick-assed cover letter, and a brief history of Nathaniel, this time I’ll get a publishing contract.
