"Trying to write a third novel was fraught, for various personal and artistic reasons—and when I finally emailed the manuscript to my agent, in the fall of 2009, he didn’t know what to do with it. He said no major publisher would touch it, as it didn’t fit any of the three bestselling fantasy models: young adult, epic, and paranormal romance. After I’d rolled myself out of a self-pitying foetal ball, I decided that I’d investigate the small press scene. Thankfully, the experience of Dave Nickle (who’s also a Goodreads author) led me to ChiZine Publications." - Caitlin Sweet
