Beautiful Losers

Sadly, the publishing company, Constable & Robinson, who published Beautiful Losers was purchased by Little, Brown. As far as I know, the only available version of the novel is in e-book form here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Beautiful-Losers-Modern-Erotic-Classics-ebook/dp/B0119PD31C/ref=sr_1_2?hvadid=80401820233969&hvbmt=bp&hvdev=c&hvqmt=p&keywords=remittance+girl&qid=1569755832&sr=8-2

I note that it is not available in any other market other than the UK.

Honestly, I’m fed up with publishing. At the same time, the expectation for writers to produce good work for free is almost universal.

Beautiful Losers first appeared in serialised form on this site. And while I do contemplate just putting it back up, I also hesitate to feed the beast of the ‘freebie’ culture, which really makes it almost impossible for most writers to earn even the most meagre of livings.

    Maybe look into rights reversion? I, for one, would love to have this in print form. One of my top ten all time books

      I agree. I would pay up to $100 dollars for a printed version of this book. That’s all my spare money for two months. Bc I feel like its more than an erotica, or a cheap thrill. u know what I mean?

    Hi, Remittance Girl
    I was going to try to find it for free, but now you’ve offered it. I really can’t take it. You are right about the difficulties of an author to, on one hand, provide quality content to their audiences and at the same time, earn a living. If I could I would like to offer you a whole publishing house dedicated to promoting your work. But as I currently have 130 in my bank account, that seems very unlikely. I would though, love to pay for my part of getting any copies of the book.

    Can we ask Amazon to put it into other markets? Create a demand for your work? I’m willing to pay!

    Sounds like lose/lose/lose.
