From the Aphrodite's Apples
Aphrodite's Apples is closing, effective February 13, 2008. It was a difficult decision to make on our part, but we feel it will be best for all parties involved. We are not having financial issues, and final royalties shall be calculated and paid out in a timely fashion. We appreciate all the time you've spent on this company, and consider it a privilege to have worked with our authors and readers. Thank you,
--Aphrodite's Apples Press
I'm very sorry to see yet another epublisher close down. It's a tough industry, extremely competitive.
For fellow authors' sakes, I'd love to see things stabilize a bit. Rather than a lot of new houses pop up, more current (but small) ones strengthen their position in the market. That would provide authors with more opportunities to place their books with strong, established houses, rather than taking risks with new ones.
Hugs to all the authors who now face the challenge of shopping around their orphaned books.
