I have been very saddened by the passing of Linda Houle, creative business partner with Lisa Smith at my publisher, L & L Dreamspell.  She fought a brave cancer fight and tried to continue holding up her business end.
 
Linda designed most of the creative book and ebook covers for the L & L Dreamspell writers including my own, Ghost Orchid.  I know she read Ghost Orchid and produced such a lovely cover, reflective of the story.

Lisa Smith will no long continue the company without Linda Houle and is returning all rights to about 200 authors with great books.  She has made arrangements for us to seek publishing with another publisher, but we need to submit our works anyway since every publisher is a bit different.

It's been difficult to wrap my arms around the whole thing because L & L Dreamspell and these two professional, kind and talented women and their editors have meant so much to me since I started publishing with them in 2009.

Nothing in this life goes on forever, even the beautiful petals of my ghost orchid are only temporary.

Always a hard thing, especially to this mean disease.  Send my condolences as well.

Sorry to hear about this, DK. If you fail to find a publisher and you don't want to self-publish, contact me.

Thanks Shelagh - not sure what direction to go at this point.  I have a new manuscript and the continued sales of Ghost Orchid to work with in figuring the next steps.  The wind is out of my sails at the moment.
