I have some distressing publishing news, and we're all getting over the lingering remnants of a COVID epidemic at our house, but there are still SO MANY things to be glad about!
Happy things first, it was recently my birthday (yes, it was a happy one--I am so spoiled!) and I'm pregnant and looking forward to a hearty, healthy baby #3 in June! So that's the good news.
The bad news is that my book babies, including Medicine for Mandie and Fortune and Folly, both of which are currently in development, are going to need to wait an indefinite period of time because my publisher has decided to stop publishing . . . fiction. Just all fiction. No more fiction. (I know, I know . . . I think it's a little crazy too!!) So I'll need to find a new publishing home for my books after Green as Grass releases!
As inconvenient as all that is, it is DOABLE.
I believe, with the uncertain direction of the Finding Home series at the present moment, I'll pivot toward working on another Regency manuscript of mine in a different series for the time being. Surviving the Earl of Thetford has been placed on the backburner for a while now, and it really deserves better! Cracking it open and looking through it has been exhilarating ("I wrote this?? Wow, this is actually really good . . .") and I'm looking forward to submitting it to a new publisher within the next few months.
As always, I'll keep all my newsletter subscribers (and perhaps a little later, my blog readers, if any exist) updated. :)
Cheers, and happy winter! (Are you jealous of our snow??)
who am I?
My name is Mary-Celeste, but my friends call me M.C.

I write Regency romances and I post about it here (among other things). Thanks for stopping by!
