Several times a year I like to let everyone know what’s happening with Mantle Rock Publishing. At this time, we are finishing up 2019. That doesn’t mean we’ll be watching TV and eating Bonbons. We have already started working on 2020. We are booked solid for 2020, and we have scheduled several books in 2021. I will be honest, I never thought when we started this company that we would have so many authors writing for us. Scheduling books two years out was something I never thought we’d do. This is my dream come true.
We are still looking for manuscripts in the Christian and Clean genre in Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Historical Romance, Cozy Mysteries, and Historical Romantic Suspense. After 2020, we will not longer take Fantasy/Speculative. Fantasy/Speculative has not sold well with us, and we can’t afford to lose money on the books we produce. There can always be exceptions, but as this moment, I don’t see any.
We have several new writers working with us. You’ll see some in 2020, and a few more in 2021. We are also being more selective in the manuscripts we take.
Mantle Rock Publishing is growing. We have added two partners to work with us. They also have a say in what we do as a company. We are happy to announce our partners. Pam Harris, who is one of our editors, is a big help to me. Diane Turpin, our cover designer/formatter, is the other partner. They are excited to see Mantle Rock Publishing grow and become a better company.
Monday I will reveal the books coming out in October. I am looking forward to 2020 and more good books published.
