As some of you may have heard, Amber Quill Press will be shutting their doors March 31st. They have been a reputable and stand up company in the LGBTQ publishing industry so it is sad to see them go.
Their reputation is deservedly so. They took the time to look at their books, what is going on with company, and make a decision as to what is best for them and their authors. Their choices have been handled carefully and professionally, letting their authors know what it up and how things are going to happen.
While we shall miss them, we admire their strength and ability to get through this transition in their lives.
Since Amber is shutting their doors, two of our authors here at MCB are effected by this. Toni with her Hot Encounters series, and Angel with Offbeat Crimes, Brandywine Investigations and others. Both of them are having to make choices as to what they want to do with their books.
We have a couple answers already.
Angel will be placing Subzero (another of her ESTO universe stories) with us. So now we shall have that gem along side Vassily, A Matter of Faces & Prisoner 374215. In addition, her Brandywine Investigations universe will also be coming to us—this includes Canines, Crosshairs and Corpses (#1), Dragons, Diamonds and Discord (#3), and Books, Bulls and Bacchanals (#4). We already have No Enemy But Time (#2) to the series so we are excited to bring them all together.
At this time we are delisting No Enemy But Time because of our decisions in regards to the series. The first three stories will be collected in an omnibus. Stories one and three will be undergoing some slight edits and additions, while No Enemy But Time will be getting an expansion. In addition, a short story from the BI will be included at the end of the omnibus. Books, Bulls and Bacchanals will be patiently waiting for more Brandywine Investigations stories to get a rerelease with them in a second omnibus for the series.
Thank you for your continued patience and support for our authors. We look forward to bringing you more wonderful stories this year.
