Pining for the fjord...
« on: December 02, 2008, 08:39:58 PM »
.. I ain't dead, just taking a break.

2009 will see no planned publications from Pendragon Press, though I will continue with the proposed series of Triquorum chapbooks. This decision hasn't been easy, and is far from being a reflection on the current state of publishing, but more a reflection on my own level of energy and enthusiasm - my hat goes off to all the other small presses out there run by people with families and more often than not full-time jobs such has myself: how do you do it? I'm spent, and want to try something else, maybe even a bit more writing (a story in a forthcoming ebook from Screaming Dreams has risen the muse from the grave, plus I've neglected Triquorum for too long now with a string of bloody good stories waiting, patiently...)

I shall continue to sell the back-stock as per usual, and attend conventions (EasterCon and FantasyCon are already marker'd into my diary) so I'm not going to disappear - well, unless I find a big enough wardrobe.

The Pendragon schedule shall resume in 2010 - my tenth-anniversary in publishing - with what could be said as a re-launch to coincide with the World Horror Convention in Brighton.

If anyone wishes to buy me a pint on Friday then you have my permission.  ;D

Good luck with the writing, Chris. I'll definitely miss Pendragon in 2009; every PP book I've ever bought has delighted me no end.

Have a nice rest and recharge your batteries.
