Taking the leap back in - Melissa Schroeder

Taking the leap back in

When I made the decision to mainly self-publish, I did not do it lightly. Nor did I say it was all I would do. I had moved away from publishers because I had felt hemmed in. Stagnant. Plus, they wanted me to tell my Addicts they had to wait a year for the next Harmless book. That was not acceptable.

But I have kept my eye out on publishers. I find the big six boring. No offense, but they all have covers that look like 50 Shades. I wanted originality and excitement. For the last year or so I have watched Entangled Publishing and have been intrigued. High quality writing and editing, breakout stars, and they have added fire to some already solid writing careers. So, when they had a call out for their One Night In…novellas that are about a couple being stuck in a location, I decided to take the plunge.

I am happy to announce Snowbound Seduction will be released in 2014 (tentative). It  tells the story of a hot headed Royal bad boy chef and his straight as an arrow partner. They get stranded in the Canadian Rockies and find they have more in common than you would expect.

I’m still going to self-publish and Entangled is cool with that. I do have a few projects I have talked to them about but I do still have a healthy self-publishing schedule for 2014. I just wanted to see what it was like to work with such a dynamic company. I am super excited about the project and about working with a new company!

  2. Finally someone besides me thinks too many covers look 50 Shades-ish! Congrats on Snowbound! It sounds really fun and I love foodie romances! Needless to say it will be at the top of my list to read for 2014.

    1. I don’t go into a lot of bookstores, but I went a few weeks ago and was appalled. I couldn’t figure out which book was which. To me it shows a herd mentality and I don’t like that at all.

      1. publishers felt the need to “jump on the bandwagon” and I hate it. I’m happy for favorite authors that will see more books to women that don’t have the guts to stand up for themselves and what they choose to read but I like picking new to me authors by cover and blurb and I won’t touch these “copy cat” books so new authors won’t get me and maybe I’ll miss out but I don’t mind. I like covers with hot guys or couples or more and I think this trend is a sad waste of hot cover guys

  3. Mel,
    I’m a HUGE fan of Entangled. They’ve got something for everyone – from sweet vanilla to spicier heat. I look forward to reading “Snowbound Seduction!”

    1. Thanks, Michelle. It was something that drew me to them as a reader and an author. I like well rounded publishing houses.

  4. Congratulations on your deal with Entangled. I can’t wait to read “Snowbound Seduction”.

  5. Congrats! Congrats! I definitely enjoy your work & I follow Entangled as well! So I see it working out very well for the two of you!!! And it gives me more entertainment (sounds a bit selfish, but oh well!!!) Can’t wait!
