Magazine reporter Kelly Kaufman is assigned to dig into a political figure who wants to run for president.

But in Robin Murphy’s paranormal mystery “Federal City’s Secret” Kelly’s in over her head, and when she fails to contact her mother Shawna for two weeks, Shawna calls the paranormal investigators. (She has some shadows and such in her apartment and uses this to bring them to D.C.)

Once Marie Bartek and her paranormal group take care of the ghost at Shawna’s, she accepts the offer to stay and work on Kelly’s apparent disappearance.

All goes well until Marie realizes that she brought more than just her group to Washington – it seems that Demon B also accompanied her. Choosing to stay and find Kelly may cost them several lives.

The Indie Author Life

Why would an indie author turn down an offer to be traditionally-published?

Ask Robin Murphy. She did, as she wrote about in a recent blog post:

I had a very exciting opportunity take place for me this week. A publisher that I submitted the third book in my paranormal mystery series, Federal City’s Secret, offered me a contract. Needless to say, I was thrilled, but also disappointed, because you see, I had already self-published the book.

I was also disappointed that the response back to me was well past the allotted time they stated on their website. We authors can only wait for so long before we decide to move on, or possibly accept another offer. They were very gracious and apologetic, but before I dove into the traditional publisher phase, I gave it 24 hours to gather my thoughts and questions. Not to mention to relish in the euphoria I felt of being offered a contract.

…… So, I decided to reach out to the writing community that I belong to and posted my question to a great author group. Needless to say, the response I received was AWESOME and they gave me some very helpful insight to areas I had not thought of myself.

I gathered their points and added a few of my own and submitted the questions to the publisher. I received a quick response, and after reviewing their answers, decided to pass on the deal. Now some would say I was crazy, but I am happy with my decision.
