The Official Website of Kelly Varesio | Author of Insperatus


I got some bad new today.

My publisher, Cold Tree Press, is officially closing its doors.

I learned of this not an hour ago, by reading a letter in the mail which the company founder sent out. Because of the economy, and because they were a smaller publisher, they are ceasing to publish any further.
What’s that mean for me and Insperatus? Simply more work. Instead of working through Cold Tree, I will be working directly with the printing company, who will print Insperatus on demand as needed by me, not the publishing company.

The company’s closure comes as a huge shock to me, and a bit bitterly accepted as I was given no earlier notice. However, I will now be working with all of my sources on a more familiar level, and have my sights set on finding a major publisher to pick up Insperatus. Although my company’s closure does sound like a bad thing, and it definitely is as far as its tediousness, more doors are opening for me, and the situation gives Insperatus a better chance of finding a larger network.

I tell you all this for one main reason: online sales. Being that everything is up in the air right now, the online sales thing is a bit confusing. will only be selling books for about two weeks more, and the the site will be removed. I don’t know yet what this will mean for amazon, barnes and noble, or the other sites exactly, although it will continue to be on sale through them.

I will update everyone when I know further details, but boy will I be busy. Finishing high school with exams coming up [not to mention CALCULUS, which is the all-time worst subject ever], working part-time, and making all the arrangements for college, the clock and I are not exactly the best of friends.

Things will go on, though–and through all this confusion at the moment, I hope that my readers will continue to support Insperatus and spread the word about it, because that’s the best thing possible for it’s blossoming!

    My name is Ashley. I just wanted to tell you that I think Insperatus is an amazing book. Have you had any education or training in writing books. I am 25 and have to say I am kindof inspired by you. Anyway truly is great. Can’t wait for the next one.
