Noble Romance FINALLY throws in the towel

August 21st, 2013 (09:05 am)

and not before time, either.

Email received 9 hrs ago:

To our Authors,
Today, I regret to inform you that a decision has been made that Noble Romance Publishing will be exiting the publishing business.
We are not insolvent, we are not going bankrupt, we simply have decided that we no longer wish to be in the business and therefore we will be exiting this business in a professional, orderly fashion.
Over the next 30 days, we will remove all books for sale through all sales channels.
We will continue to send monthly royalty statements out and pay all royalties owed until all payments have been collected. We anticipate that this could be as soon as October, but we do not completely control third party sales.
Once this process is complete, this means that your rights will automatically revert to you per our agreement and if you need a letter confirming this, please email us and we will be happy to provide you one.
We wish to thank all of you who have been good partners with us and we wish everyone nothing but the best.

I’ve asked them for that letter of confirmation and will be shopping Tributary around when received. There are great stories in The Last Gasp compilation and they deserve a better publisher

Any thoughts about whether we should keep the stories separate or keep the anthology together?

I think we'd all do better individually, to be honest - collections just don't seem to do anywhere near as well...

promises made

Works for me. Speak Its Name was a notable exception - if only all anthologies did so well!

wonderful news! I hear Jill might be working with Untreed Reads - I'm afraid I'd have to avoid them like the plague if that happens.

Ack, I was in the process of recommending them to someone I've offered to help polish a couple of stories to.
