Seriously people, make with the goss.
Ocean's Mist press really is dead, right? The website is down, their books are no longer listed at Fictionwise. They were not considerate enough to make with the online histrionics before collapsing into a messy and protracted bankruptcy (seriously, have they no respect for the needs of bloggers!) but it would be nice to know whether authors were paid and had their rights returned and everything tied up neatly.
And Venus, I know some of you must have the goss on that! I am still assuming the website is a Marie Celeste that reappeared somehow with no one at the helm. But I have learned not to under-estimate the stupidity-slash-audacity of owners of struggling epresses. Has anyone been back in touch with GoDaddy (who yanked the site in the first place)?
Finally, I need the sales figure goss. I need only 1-4 more book sales figures for the following presses before I post their figures: Amber Quill, Aspen Mountain Press, Changeling, Freya's Bower, Phaze, Whiskey Creek Press and Wild Rose. Just email first month's sales figures, and if you have it any higher totals (to date, first year). [veinglory at gmail.com]
