Signet’s Just Not That Into Cassie Edwards Anymore

cassie-edwards-headshot.jpgBad news always gets buried in the Friday afternoon cycle: Take Signet‘s announcement to the Associated Press that, due to “irreconcilable editorial differences,” it’s dumping Cassie Edwards. Irreconcilable editorial differences, in this context, apparently meaning “You think it’s okay to plop material from other people’s books right into the middle of your manuscripts, and now that we’ve finally caught on to it, we’re not real happy about that.” Rights to all the Edwards novels Signet published (and there’s a lot of ‘em) revert back to the author.

Ironically, right around the time that announcement was being made, the Romantic Times convention was hosting a panel on how to properly incorporate historical research into fiction.
