Late last year, publisher Jo Lowe, founder of Inknbeans Press, which published "Yoshida's Dilemma," sadly passed away. She was 61. Jo had been battling a long illness, but her passing came as a huge shock for many, including her loyal INB authors. I never had the fortune to actually meet her, but I quickly learned she was a hugely respected member of he publishing world with a unique voice and independent mind. I have always been grateful to her for accepting my manuscript, which in hindsight was a brave decision on her part.
There was uncertainty as to what would happen to INB after her passing but just today I received a letter from her husband, Gary, saying that the company has ceased to do business and the rights to the book are now returned to me. While sad, this means that (sorry if this sounds cold) I can look out for another publisher (any suggestions welcomed). The book is still available for sale online. However, if you would like to order directly through my website (www.yoshidas-dilemma.com) I would be very grateful. (As sad as Jo's loss is, I have never actually received any royalties for sales to date.)
