Dear Beloved Readers,

I’ve been thinking about how to announce this for a while. I’ve been thinking about how best to share the news. Then I realized there’s no better way than just to come out and say it.

As of March 31, 2015 Crescent Moon Press has closed its doors. What does this mean?

Taste, Savor, and Relish are officially out of print.

If you’ve visited any of the online retailers like Amazon, you will notice that electronic copies of the books are no longer available. Paperbacks are still purchasable, but only until supplies last.

It’s a bittersweet moment for me since CMP gave me my first shot. I’m grateful to Steph and Marlene for publishing my debut novel, which has sold well and allowed me to meet countless readers who have enjoyed reading about Luka, Demitri, and Phoenix. I believe I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for CMP.

To those who have paperbacks and ecopies of all three books, they are now officially collector’s items. Thank you so much for your support. It means more to me than you can ever know.

For those who ordered the set of three paperbacks, you will receive them this April. They are part of the last shipment I ordered. I still have two sets available in case anyone wants to purchase them. Just send me a private message.

To the readers from the Philippines who own signed copies, thank you for making these books a part of your collection! You are a member of a select club that now no one else can be a part of. I consider myself blessed to know each and every one of you.

This is normal in the publishing world. Even big publishers can close if what happened with Egmont is any indication. But the great part is we can continue to look to the future. Publishing is always evolving and we must grow with it. So stay tuned for more exciting news. I have so much to share with all of you soon.

And if you haven’t yet, please make sure to add No Love Allowed to your To Be Read list on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23288804-no-love-allowed

Once again, my deepest appreciation for your support.

Sincerely,
Kate
