While this is all good news to me, this announcement may sound a little good news/bad news to you folks. But, here it is: I have changed publishers for my book.
The bad news is that it will not be published until early 2010, nearly a full year past the original pub date.
The overwhelmingly good news is that I have reached an agreement with Chelsea Green, a environmentalist press who have put out some of my favorite cheese books (including one that I actually quoted in my manuscript – how incestuous!). I am incredibly excited to be involved with Chelsea Green because I have admired their work for years. Plus, I think they will actually print the book!
I wish my old publisher well. They have put out some books I love and while they are going through some hard times right now, I do think they will eventually rebound. I just couldn’t stay in limbo any longer.
I will link to ordering information and all that when it’s up in a few months, but just wanted to update you all on the state of the Cheesemonger.
Thanks for all your support.
Congrats and darn. 🙂
Do you know if the Amazon pre-orders will just transfer over? I assume it’ll have a new ISBN assigned so that might throw things for a loop.
not sure yet. I hope so, but nothing is confirmed. Chelsea Green has been busy putting out Howard Dean’s health care book so we haven’t talked since I signed the contract. That’s a great trade-off if it helps ends the no-affordable-healthcare madness in this country. We can hope, right?
