First off, here is my new Maggie Fenton Facebook page!
So, a great deal has been happening in my world! I finally finished my Master’s degree in piano performance (thank hell!!) and am now entirely focused on writing. Thanks to the success of The Duke’s Holiday, I am able to write full time now! It is a dream I never expected to have fulfilled!
After the unexpected success of The Duke’s Holiday (I thought it would make a couple hundred dollars when I self published), several publishers and agents expressed an interest in taking me on.
After all of the success I had with self publishing I was very hesitant about considering these offers. But in the end, I was able to work out a very promising deal with Montlake Romance Publishing, which is a division of Amazon. I hope to take my writing to the next level!!
They have acquired The Duke’s Holiday, which they are relaunching with a new cover on April 7th of this year!! I am extremely excited about reaching more readers with Amazon behind me!!! I also love the new cover. It is kind of similar to the first one with the embracing couple, but it has a lot more detail. Here is a draft of it:
Also, I have just submitted my manuscript of Virtuous Scoundrel to Montlake. The estimated publication date is October, 2015!!! Yay!!!! I will keep everyone posted about the progress of the manuscript!!!! It should be very good, and I hope people enjoy it as much as The Duke’s Holiday. As a little teaser, I will say that Astrid and Montford make some cameo appearances to stir things up.
Now I am on to writing the next installment in my Margaret Foxe Elders and Welders Series, Thief of Hearts!! I’m so glad I had writer’s block when I tried to write Thief of Hearts last spring. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have published The Duke’s Holiday!!!
