Today we are talking to author Sara Wolf.
Sara, you are re-publishing this series. Tell me about your journey in re-publishing. What made you do it? What was the process like, and how is the new version different from the original?
Hi everyone! Thanks for having me, it’s so awesome to be here.
Republishing can be a tricky animal – on one hand, you don’t want to go through all the work it took to publish again, but on the other, you start thinking about how and where exactly your book could use improvement. This is ultimately what led me to deciding to republish the LOVELY VICIOUS series.
When I saw the series do well when it was e-book only, I thought to myself; I wish I could put this in paperback, somehow! I researched a bunch of different sites that promised to do that for you, for a price. I realized I couldn’t afford to both keep a roof over my head and publish the books into paperback, so I turned to the one person who knows what to do, always; my agent.
My agent promised she’d send the manuscript out to various publishers. It was turned down by a ton of them, but I’d been used to that for a long time. I didn’t take it personally. Finally, my agent informed me the lovely Stacy Abrams of Entangled Publishing was interested, and I was thrilled! We signed up with a contract that promised paperbacks and shelf-space, and I was over the moon.
The process was so seamless – the Entangled team made it just so easy. The edits were so crucial – Stacy took the book and made it so much better. She saw the true potential, and we worked together as hard as we could on it. The new version has tons of edits, lots of new scenes, and a delightful new cover for me to blow up and tack to my wall – I mean, ahem, for everyone to enjoy.
I definitely think my decision to republish was the right one; I got to work with so many great, talented people and be part of the Entangled family, and that’s all I could ask for.
Thank you, and have a great one!
About the author
About Forget Me Always
It’s been three years, twenty-five weeks, and five days since Isis Blake fell in love, and if she has it her way, it’ll stretch into infinity. Since then, she’s punched Jack Hunter—her nemesis-turned-maybe-something-more—in the face, survived a brutal attack by her mom’s abusive ex thanks to Jack’s heroics, and then promptly forgotten all about him.
The one bright spot for Isis is Sophia, the ephemeral girl who shares Isis’s hospital stay as well as a murky past with Jack. But as Isis’s memories return, she finds it harder and harder to resist what she felt for Jack, and Jack finds it impossible to stay away from the only girl who’s ever melted the ice around his heart.
As the dark secrets surrounding Sophia emerge, Isis realizes Jack isn’t who she thought he was. He’s dangerous. But when Isis starts receiving terrifying emails from an anonymous source, that danger might be the only thing protecting her from something far more threatening.
