After receiving an email from a reader of the Oddfits series enquiring why the books were no longer available on Kindle from Amazon, I’ve decided to provide a public explanation about why this is! The short story: in order to ensure the publication of the third and final instalment of the series, I’ve had to start the process of changing publishers.
I will forever be grateful to Gabriella Page-Fort at Amazon Crossing, who acquired The Oddfits because she loved it so much. Amazon Crossing technically is Amazon Publishing’s literature-in-translation imprint and usually only publishes books published in languages besides English.
Sometime after I signed the contract for the second book in the series, The More Known World, something changed policy-wise at Amazon Crossing which appears to now prevent them from publishing any more books originally written in English. Hence, although I have enjoyed being an Amazon Crossing writer immensely, if I want to publish the third and final novel in the Oddfits series, which I do, I have to find a new publisher.
Because all the books are part of a series, this means I have to relocate the entire trilogy to a new publisher who would be willing to publish all three books, including the new one. And the first step in the process has been getting Amazon Crossing to revert all rights back to me, which means that the e-book is no longer available from them and hard copies will soon be unavailable too as they sell whatever remaining stock they have.
So, all Oddfits fans out there, thank you for your patience and support, and know that this temporary state of uncertainty stems from the fact that I want to complete the series in the satisfying, kick-ass manner it deserves. I’ve plotted the third book out and have been writing steadily every day, and I am very, very happy with how it is turning out.
