Sue Mydliak was born in Flint, Michigan. Came to Illinois when she was a little girl and graduated from Downers Grove South. It wasn't until the book Twilight came out did she develop her interest in writing. It was then in 2011, that her first book, Birthright, was published and made best seller the first week it was out. This lead her to make Birthright into a Trilogy. She has written two other books, Night Games and an anniversary book, Forever, which is Birthright's story, but whose story line is different and geared more for adults. She is currently writing two other books, Eternal and Secrets and has finished illustrating a new children's book, JellyBean Turns Three (see her Children's book website, http://susiebbooks.strikingly.com/)

I'm free!

Ok, so you all read my post about "The Art of being Published" well, I have been set free from this publisher! I simply wrote him a small, but fully packed letter informing him of our
contractual agreement to which he was not doing his part in it and that I wanted my ebook that they had published off the market because I did not want my writing represented by this publisher.
Oh, and that the manuscripts I had sent to him be destroyed. His reply? "I understand and I wish you the best of luck!"

Here I was all set to give him what for if he decided to give me a hard time and his reply back was rather nice and non-offending...darn!

Seriously, I'm glad that it went as well as it did. From my last post on this matter, I come to find yet another author who was contracted with this publisher was having the same if not identical situation that I found myself in. So now I wonder how many more authors that are bound by his ill-conceived notion of publishing are finding difficulty as well and don't know better?

To end this post, I will say how much better I feel knowing that my writings are back and totally mine to do what I wish and publish them with another publisher.


  1. Way to go, Sue! Time for the happy dance!

  2. Oh Blaze, my writings are my babies.

  3. Congrats, not only on getting your work back, but also in having a better than expected resolution.
    Very good news, Sue.
