#WW Huzzah! I Have A New Publisher

Huzzah! I Have A New Publisher

The day has come! If you follow me on Facebook, I promised today would be the day I announce the future. Let me start off by first saying something so cliché, we all know it is true: I couldn’t have done this without you.

Really. I couldn’t have. In fact, it was one of you who helped me connect with my new publisher.

That’s right. If you haven’t guessed from the title, I have signed with Clean Teen Publishing. I am unbelievably grateful for this talented and passionate group of people taking me in, and I look forward to the future more than ever before! The Timely Death Trilogy will be re-released this summer and fall, and I will keep everyone updated as the books receive new covers, new sneak peeks, and more!


I cannot contain the excitement long enough to write a comprehensible declaration of admiration, but here is the official Clean Teen Publishing Press Release.

If you’re searching for the second announcement I promised to make today, don’t fret! I haven’t forgotten. My personal essay – Nowhere – was published in the winter edition of the literary magazine, Fine Lines! This has also been one of the most wonderful moments of my writing life recently because I’ve always wanted to get a piece of nonfiction published. This is one of my “bucket list” writing goals, so to speak, so look out for more information on that as well.

::takeshugebreath:: (I sometimes forget to breathe when I get excited).

Oh, what an emotional month this has been. A little over a month ago, I shared I Lost My Publisher with you, and I wrote this:

“I am thankful I had the opportunity to share stories with the world, and I will never forget the readers and writers I’ve met along the way. I can only dream of ever meeting this surreal reality again – not as a future fantasy or a broken past – but as my writer life reborn.”

Now, one month later, I am here to write a follow-up: This is my rebirth, and you all have brought me to this moment. If I could hug you all, I would, and hopefully, I’ll get the chance to meet you one day. Until then, I am proud to announce I am continuing this writing dream of mine, and I am grateful to have your support and encouragement along the way. You will always be the ink in my pen.

I love you all,

  1. Congratulations! I know that means a lot to you. I wish you the best of luck at continuing to write raw, passionate, unwavering books. Do not let anybody push your words down rivers they were not meant to flow through.

    I know that it was a period of frustration, losing your publisher and feeling stranded, but the miry clay always dries up. So happy for you!!!

    You can’t keep a great author down. You’re back in the sunshine and out of the shadows. Thrilled to bits for you. Now I have time to save up and buy your books.
    Warmest wishes for an even more successful times ahead.

      1. My pleasure Shannon. It’s what writers do, we help and support each other.
        Have not forgotten interview, in the middle of studies and trying to find time for everything.

  3. Mega CONGRATS, Shannon! See, great things are in store for you! You are a talented writer/author/artist and the universe couldn’t keep you down forever! WHOO HOO! Sometimes, as writers, we have to go through the dark valley to realize how badly we need to achieve our dreams!!! 🙂

    1. Mega thank you! I truly appreciate the time you’ve taken to write your encouraging (and very honest) words! Those tough times are worth these great times, right? 😀 Thank you so much for your support!

      1. Awww you’re most welcome! I went through it last year and thought my writing career was over. But I got through it and now am living the most amazing life ever! 🙂 When in the darkness and all you have is faith in yourself and your dreams, you’ve gotta reach deep down inside and choose to take a step forward. 🙂
