Last week, I signed a book deal with Amazon Publishing's mystery and thriller imprint, Thomas & Mercer. What's this mean for my novel Because We Are? Some pretty fantastic things.
The book will undergo a fresh edit and be republished next year, newly backed by Amazon's marketing power. Needless to say, a lot more people are going to be reading Because We Are starting next May!
The way this happened is miraculous: one of T&M's editors came upon the book in the Amazon store, scanned the reviews, read the book, loved it, and contacted me out of nowhere about purchasing it. Quite the surprise!
Even more exciting, this deal will multiply the book's impact dramatically. All my author's royalties are and will continue to be donated to organizations working in Haiti.
What's the bottom line? To everyone who pledged their support, bought the book, or wrote a review, I can't thank you enough! I may have written the story, but you all made this happen.
