Okay, the World Must Really Be Ending on December 21st!

It's finally happening! After several failed attempts, my backlist books will finally be released as ebooks, starting with The Unicorn's Daughter next week. I'll be releasing a book a week until the entire backlist is out there...minus the four to which Harlequin still has rights (and they've already released two of those four in ebook format).






I'm starting with the five books written under my own name and originally published by Berkley (Penguin Putnam). Two will go back to their original titles: The Unicorn's Daughter (A Time for Legends) and Alexander's Empire (Dance of the Gods). All will have new covers, designed by Collin. We're also going to be releasing new, updated print editions.






Collin is also working on the advertising for the books and will be doing book trailers. He's expanding the services he offers authors to include book covers, advertising, e-book formatting, press releases, and now book trailers.






Next up: Angels at Midnight. Collin's still working on the new cover for it and Solitaire. In June, we'll be releasing Alexander's Empire, Luck of the Draw and Solitaire. As for the romantic comedies, written under my "Toni Collins" pseudonym, that's still up in the air. Harlequin still has the rights to four of them, and I have to be sure I can use the pseudonym while they still have some of my books in their possession! I hope I can...I also have a new project in the works that works better for Toni than for Norma....

  1. Alexander's Empire has much better ring to it, I think. And I like that cover!

    1. "Toni" may be doing a new book as well. I've developed the idea. The working title is Superhero in Training.

  4. Congratulations! I'm happy Norma that you have several works coming out again (and with better covers, too)! It is exciting. And the title changes are great, too! Take care!

    1. The previous titles were the work of Berkley's marketing chimps. That's why they made no sense.

    I don't remember the old cover for Alexanders Empire but I like Collin's new cover very much.
