Sarah McCarty and Ellora’s Cave Part Ways.

In an amicable separation, pro EC author, Sarah McCarty, told Sybil at The Good, The Bad and The Ugly that she will no longer writing for EC. While McCarty states that it was a very civil parting of the ways and the door remains open, I feel sad for the fans who won’t be getting the Zach’s Obsession AND Promises Redeem.

    Without knowing all the details but being a true fan of every book that
    Sarah McCarty has written I donot understand why some agreement
    cannot be reached.We the fans have been waiting for Promises Redeem
    & Zachs Obsession for at least a yr or more & were thinking we would be
    able to have these books in the near future.

    Yes, I posted something similar on my blog, Let’s Gab. It was an amicable split… and even though we aren’t getting Zach’s Obsession and Promises Redeem we WILL be getting TEN books from her between November 2007 and into early 2009. Can’t complain there.

    A parting of ways explains the reflective tone of McCarty’s comments on Karen’s blog. It has certainly been an “interesting” month for e-pubs .

    TEN books – woohoo!

    I heard a lot a rumors that Sarah was hard to work with with. Somewhat of a prima donna. She shafts other authors at booksignings and I know for a fact that one of those authors whose writings are somewhat of a franzchise has been ripped off and there is a Sarah series coming up with the same title, presmise plot, and a lot of other ‘lifted’things EC wasn’t please about it.. Could be why EC let her go?
