Please excuse the double entendre, but we couldn't help it. These kinds of things don't come around every day you know. The fact that it's been SNOWING off and on here in Southern Oregon the last couple of days, and that a week ago today on April Fool's Day we got a surprise phone call from author Miranda Phillips Walker asking if she could come back home. Here's the backstory: Krill Press was founded in the fall of 2008 and our first title, "Absinthe Of Malice" by Pat Browning was published on December 1, 2008 and went on to be an Amazon Kindle Bestseller. Miranda Walker's "The Well Meaning Killer" was our third title, published on June 10, 2009. This awesome first novel about female FBI agent Megan McKenna, on the hunt for a serial killer in the Baltimore area, was in print and eBook for only a year before Miranda decided not to renew her contract with Krill and try her hand at going it alone. We wished her well (while kicking ourselves in the ass at the same time for only giving her a one year contract in the first place!) and kept our fingers crossed that she would be successful because that is, after all, the real philosophy behind Krill Press: to give great, undiscovered authors their first professional exposure to the publishing world and, hopefully, begin to establish a readership. With the help of her husband, prolific fiction author Robert W. Walker (and no, he didn't write her book for her!), Miranda changed her book's title to "Absolution" and published it as an eBook only. We're not sure, exactly, what's Miranda's experience has been with that venture and frankly it's none of our business. Suffice it to say that we feel LUCKY to get "The Well Meaning Killer" back and know that our readers are going to feel the same way. We have a 2 year contract in the mail to Miranda, who lives in Charleston, WV., so be watching for the return of "The Well Meaning Killer" in Trade Paperback, Kindle, and NOOK (and with brand new gorgeous covert art!) sometime in the next couple of weeks.
