Publisher Closing

I'm sorry I didn't post on character values yesterday. To be honest, I just wasn't in the mood. Earlier this week, my publisher announced they were closing and I've been rather busy trying to get legal aspects of the situation taken care of (as much as I've been able to) and to take down any reference to Triskelion Enterprises LLC that I can on my various websites. I still have to work on my main site but that one is tricky so I've saved it to last.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has offered words of support and commiseration and I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has purchased one of my books. But I also would like to warn everyone to stay away from the Triskelion Publishing site. If you purchase a book, the author will likely never see a penny of royalties. If you purchase one of the non-ebook items, you may never receive the item.

It's a sad situation for all concerned but I don't want any of you, who have supported the Triskelion Authors for so long, to be harmed by it.

As for me, I'll be back to my normal (whatever that it, LOL) self next time I post. And I'm continuing work on my WIP. This is just a small bump in the road for all of us who had contracts with Triskelion. We'll be back, all of us, before you know it.

I completely agree with your last statement! There are plenty of blue skies and silver linings to find ahead. I know it doesn't seem like it now, when we're bogged down by worry and sadness, but we'll get through this!

Absolutely! Deal with it but move on. I refuse to let this stop me :D

My heart goes out to all the Trisk authors. This is one of those things that can happen to any epublisher at any time - who would have thought an RWA-recognized pub would go under?

I hope this proves to be only a minor setback for everyone and new opportunities come up soon.

Hear hear, Lynda!

And ditto what Jen said. I feel for all the Trisk authors who've had their hopes dashed. Hopefully they'll find better opportunities elsewhere.
