My contract with Lachesis Publishing ran out on April 1st, and I’ve decided not to renew with them. Lachesis is a good outfit, run by some wonderful people, but they’ve had some real difficulties dealing with distributors here in the U.S. That’s made availability a problem, to the point that nearly all sales of the book over the last three years have come from Amazon. Getting the title into the brick and mortar stores has been nearly impossible.
So, after some difficult decision making, I’ve decided to reposition the book with Permuted Press. They will be doing an inexpensive ebook version that can be read on both the Kindle and the Nook, plus a trade paperback edition that I’m really looking forward to, as it will include a few technical revisions to bring the fight against the San Antonio Flu up to date.
Rollout will occur in two parts, with the ebook version appearing first. Hopefully, the ebook version will be available within a few weeks. The trade paperback edition is still waiting on new cover art and should be coming out sometime this summer.
I’ll have full details and exact release dates soon. In the meantime, I’m told that the few remaining new copies of Quarantined are running for over a $100, with used copies going for over $50.
