Remember what I said about having class?

Here’s another example:

I received word from my editor on October 1, 2008 that there will be no further books in The Brethren Series. I appreciate all of the wonderful feedback I’ve received from readers and know many have been left wondering what happens after DARK HUNGER ends. Although I tried three times to pitch an additional installment to the series, the original pitch is the story as I meant it to continue. I don’t have much of the manuscript completed, and what I do have, you’ll find in the “Deleted Scenes” thread at my forum, as alternate scenes from “Dark Hunger.” The outline for the proposed third book in the Brethren Series, “Dark Passion” is now also available at my forum. IT CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE PUBLISHED BOOKS. Hopefully it will answer any lingering questions readers may have about the events set up in “Hunger.”:grin: You’ll find it here.
Thanks again to everyone who has read my books and let me know their thoughts on them. You’ve made a rewarding experience even more worthwhile.
Sara

Ms Reinke, allow me to express my sadness at this news, as well as my admiration for the grace you’ve displayed under what are undoubtedly trying circumstances for you. Would that more people followed your example.

    That is a class act. She’s been dropped for her publisher for the series – that must have been pretty hard on her. But she still is concerned enough for her fans to provide them with some closure even though without profit, even when she must have other worries.

    Pure class.

  • Thanks so much for this, AztecLady and Sparky. Kensington helped me to fulfill a lifelong dream, plus make some fantastic new friends — like you guys — along the way. It’s like Inigo says to Fezzig in the book, “The Princess Bride:” “We’re going on an adventure, and most people go their whole lives through never saying as much.” Or something to that effect, LOL. I’m grateful and glad I had this opportunity.

    I have nothing bad to say about my experience and wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’m definitely still writing, definitely going to keep trying to get published, and as I mentioned on my blog today, hell, if no one will publish me, I’ll post my stories for free on my site. My work’s only half-done as a writer if nobody reads them.

    Thanks so much for being a part of this adventure with me! Here’s looking to all of the ones yet to come!

    *hugs*

  • Oh, man. I’ve heard so much buzz around these books (and the ending of the second) I recently went and picked them up. I’m sorry to hear she won’t be able to finish her storyline.

    Best of luck, Sara.

  • 🙁 I’m so disappointed for her. I read the first one and the second is on its way to me, hopefully as I type. But yes, what class.

  • I know Sara personally, as she is the President of the Louisville Romance Writers, a group of which I am a member. I vouch for the fact that she is a classy lady. She’s outgoing, funny and an inspiration to all the members of our group. I am very disappointed at the cancellation of her series but I know this isn’t the last we’ll see from her. Her talent is too great to let one setback dim it.

  • I think Sara is a terrific author. She was the editor for one of my novels and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. It is disheartening that she will have no other books coming out from Kensington. She is, though, a very talented lady and there is no doubt in my mind she will find a publisher worthy of her.
