A Scaling Back

Last year was a very difficult one here. Health issues, work schedules, and general difficulties prevented us from giving the press the attention it needs.

This year, we have decided to scale back.

Effective at once:
Inkstained Succubus is closed to submissions.
All anthology calls for this year are postponed.

The square store remains open, the books remain for sale and royalties will continue to be sent.  All contracts will be honored.

Our convention schedule will be lighter.
We're still recovering.

Internet promotion, via blog, facebook, google+ and twitter will continue. We encourage you to promote as well.

The following anthologies are going forward:
Pan's Garden
Have Quest Will Travel
Winter Chills

I'm sorry we've had to take the hiatus. We're just not well.

Busy Busy

Your captain has a finger in every pie, ducks. (And the peach one is a little warm)

So here's a midwinter update, as we lie at anchor in the Skies above the Sunny Southland.

1) Winter Chills

Gabriel has this one and is formatting. Which means, barring explosions in the lab (Lisa! Put that down!) we should have a book in a week or so.

2)  Audiobooks. You have no idea how hard it is to get the engine noise out of these.

Candle in the Dark is available and selling. Evan Harris did a tremendous job.

"Skin and Bones" is headed to retail. I can't wait for you to hear Elisa Hilton's reading.

"Diplomacy and Universal Constants" is in edits.
Curse of the Pharaoh's Manicurists is in edits 
Terror of the Frozen North has had the first 15 minutes approved

Resistance is in the works
Hard Reboot is in the works

"1KRV5" just got contracted and the manuscript went out tonight.

3) Pan's Garden

At the Editor.

4) Have Quest Will Travel

At the Editor. Also needs cover idea.

5) Badass

In Reading

And we remain open for submissions of novellas  (20-45K) and novels (45K+). We will take three more for publication this year.

Xenophile is open until March 15,
Mythos for the Modern Age until June 15
Friends with Strange Benefits until Sept 15

It's out! It's paid.

We put out over $160 in royalties this month, a new record.

Keep telling people about your books. Review!

Keep watching the skies, Skin and Bones will be out soon as an audiobook!
