We received the disappointing news on Friday evening that Booktrope is shutting down effective May 31. This is sad news for all the authors, editors, designers, etc. who have invested time in multiple projects. I republished my own novel First Sight via Booktrope and will look back into self-publishing or other avenues later this summer.
I've been fortunate enough to have met and worked with a number of talented authors as an editor for Booktrope. Hopefully many of those connections will continue. I still offer freelance editing and proofreading services. Projects that I'm able to accept will be limited this summer, however, as baby #2 is coming and I'll be taking maternity leave.
More information on Booktrope closing its doors can be found here.
I wish I had a chance to work with them longer. It's been a fun ride, but I'm looking forward to exploring new opportunities in the future.
