In my ten year journey, some of my books have had more than one home. The two that come to mind first are Moments and Back Home.
23 October 2010 – published with Silver, 7 April 2013 – published with Pride (Totally Bound), 12 April 2017 – published independently by me
2 April 2011 – published with Silver, 1 June 2013 – published with Pride (Totally Bound), 1 June 2017 – published independently by me
Both were written for Silver Publishing, way WAY back in 2010/11, and both went on to be picked up by Pride Publishing when Silver vanished.
They were some of the first books that I decided needed to be back with me as independently published, and I was so happy when they came back 🙂 they've had a load of different covers, but I'm finally happy with the ones I have, and also have Back Home translated.
In fact, with the exception of a few of my translations, every one of my books is with my company and independently published. It's a fantastic feeling for me and where I feel happiest. After everything I've seen in the last ten years, I want to stay indy, but that doesn't necessarily suit everyone. Independent publishing is far from easy because you are doing everything yourself.
Oh well, it keeps me on my toes
