Since I learned of the demise of the vanity that first published my first three books, I have been on a mission to re-edit and re-release those books. As everyone knows, my first three books were published through PublishAmerica/America Star Books. For two years (2015 and 2016), they attempted to charge me a fee to “return” my publishing rights to me. at first, it was $50, the last time, it was somewhere around $80. Recently, I attempted to contact the company unsuccessfully. I tried to contact one of the reps that used to contact me with their “promo offers”, but the email came back undeliverable. I, then, got on their website and tried to contact the company directly…but the messages would not go through, which told me that the site was just running, but no one was overseeing it.
I, then, Googled the company and found that they had undergone a lawsuit, name change, and then a change in structure…before completely shutting down. This means that, legally, I could now publish my own books, especially the two that have been out of print for over a year. So, I am now proud to announce the following:
Seven By Jay: Seven Short Stories and So Here’s to Twilight and Other Poetry/ So Here’s to Twilight II: The Fall of the Grand Empire ( both originally published as a single book So Here’s to Twilight and Other Poems) are officially re-edited and re-released!
Seven By Jay can be found here: (first is Kindle version, second is paperback)
