‘Throne Of Bones’ Departs Hinterlands
A Throne of Bones author Vox Day says that as of yesterday, he’ll no longer publish his high fantasy with Marcher Lord Press’s mature imprint.
For reasons that will become clear in a few weeks, and which I am not presently able to disclose, I am no longer publishing my books with Marcher Lord Hinterlands as of today. There haven’t been any problems or a falling out, and indeed, even our most recent collaboration has been successful, with 1,100 copies of QM being sold in its first month of release. I have merely arranged to reacquire the full publishing rights to my books.
What this means in the short-term is that neither the Selenoth books nor the Quantum Mortis books will be available from Amazon or anywhere else for that matter. I expect the books to again be available on Amazon, the Apple Store, and elsewhere, by the end of January.
Day says there was no “falling out.”
But he does say there are “reasons that will become clear in a few weeks, and which I am not presently able to disclose.”
Regardless of what’s happening here, we can wish everyone here well in their story endeavors. Meanwhile, fans of Christian fantasy may want to prepare to deal with actual “falling out”-style situations. These are inevitable when any Thing becomes more popular.
I noticed this too. It’s odd because he just released Quantum Mortis barely a month or two ago. Guessing he’s either self-publishing or got a better deal with another publisher.
All his novels are utter crapola anyway.
Update: Day is departing the Hinterlands imprint because Marcher Lord Press is under new management. The deal includes all MLP’s novels except A Throne of Bones (along with the surprise hit whose title is the only parody, Amish Vampires in Space).
