C is for Clandestine Classics

Total-e-Bound Publishing were my first publisher and my primary writing home, and I wouldn't consider myself a loyal member of their author list if I didn't mention their Clandestine Classics line. However, since I've already described it here previously, I'll move on to say why it's such a good thing - this time from the point of view of someone who has read every release in the line so far.

I love to read new books, and I especially love to read classics. But it's sometimes easy to forget that there are many, many more writers than Jane Austen and the Brontes. When the first wave of Clandestine Classics came out, there were the usual suspects - Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, all of which I found equally good with their sexy additions. And then, much to my delight, there were novels I had never even thought of reading before.

Which ones, you ask? How about Dracula? Tarzan of the Apes? Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea? A Princess of Mars? And let's not forget the re-vamped Sherlock Holmes, which introduced me to a whole collection of stories I only wish I had discovered sooner.

So, when invited, I started work on my own Clandestine Classic. Sadly, though I have signed a contract, I can't tell you which one it is yet. But I will do so soon - and I thank all concerned for giving me the chance to write it.
