How to destroy a publishing company

On February 1, 2012 I made the announcement on my Facebook page and twitter account that I have parted ways with Trestle Press Publishing.

At my request, my serialized novel Mina’s Daughter: The Harker Chronicles was removed from Trestle Press, and is no longer available for purchase on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

In addition, I have been able to contact Liliana Sanches, the artist whose artwork had been stolen by Trestle Press and used without permission on the cover of my novel. Ms. Sanches is an amazing artist, and a gracious person. She does not blame me for the stolen artwork, and I have gone ahead and made provisions to pay her a licensing fee as restitution, even though I am not the one to blame.

Mina’s Daughter: The Harker Chronicles will be re-issued as a completed novel. Stay tuned for more details.
