    I just was notified by the publisher of the three novels in Father Serra’s Legacy will be reverting to me next month.



    They are currently on the publisher’s website (a real loser) and on Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle. To this point, the publisher has done little more than edit (which some of it I disagreed with) and designed covers that I have never liked.



    I assume the books – and me – will be removed from their website – no big lose IMHO. I also guess they will be removed from Amazon.com.



    This will leave me to design (or have someone design) new covers and self publish them on CreateSpace and Kindle.



    Anyone else gone through this? And what was the experience – and results – like?

    There are some fine online publishing companies. Inventory them.

    Also build your own advertising through FaceBook with a paypal link.

    Good luck.

    I will do what the publisher never did, seek ways of publicizing them through Amazon and CreateSpace.

    That is good also, but if you do sales through them, you pay a %. Good luck.
