Bad News

Terrible news for a lot of people yesterday: Strange Chemistry (who did my Emilie and the Hollow World and Emilie and the Sky World books) has shut down. None of the upcoming books will be published, and there's not word yet on what's going to happen with the books that were already out. (Basically if you wanted any of the Strange Chemistry titles, now would be a good time to get them, and the authors would really appreciate it.)

Here's the formal notice.

Here's the list of books Strange Chemistry published. (The "coming soon" section won't be published.)

The mystery line, Exhibit A Books, was also cancelled.

This is really depressing news. I've had nine total publishers (eighteen counting foreign language reprints) and this is the fourth one shot out from under me. A lot of young authors had their books cancelled, and people lost jobs, so it's always a miserable situation when this happens.
