DarkFuse closes

Well, this isn't a post I expected to write, but here it is. The publisher DarkFuse, home to a lot of great writers and books, has gone bankrupt and closed for business. Included in those books was my novella Mirror Of The Nameless which is obviously now unavailable. To say I'm gutted is an understatement. I had a lot of fun writing that book and it came with a relative ease I find hard to believe now. I also struggle to work out how the hell I managed to focus on nothing but the basic story of it without any outside bullshit, but that's just one of those things.

I have zero clue what will happen with Mirror in the long-term. Possibly nothing as it's hard enough to pitch new work to decent publishers let alone stuff that's already been published. I can always do it myself, of course, and maybe I will. At the moment, I just don't know.

If you've been paying attention, you'll know this isn't the first time I've experienced this and it's no less of a bummer now. One of those older books is still homeless and maybe Mirror will join it. Anyway, my little tale I wrote as HP Lovecraft meets Mad Max is done for now along with some quality work by a lot of authors I admire.
