Romance publisher Samhain Publishing has just told its customers that it is shutting down at the end of the month.
Greetings, Samhain Readers.
It’s with a heavy heart that we announce Samhain Publishing will be closing at the end of February. Due to the declining sales we’ve been experiencing with this changing market we’ve come to the sad conclusion it’s time to call it a day.
The last of our new titles launch February 21st; I hope you will check them out and support them as you have so many other Samhain titles through the years.”
Our site will go dark at the end of the day, February 28th. Please take a few moments and visit, buy what you might have been planning on getting someday in the future, but download and back up your bookshelf because you won’t have access to it after February 28th.
Thank you for all your support through the eleven years we’ve been open. It’s been a pleasure to bring to market new voices in publishing and new works from familiar authors. From start to finish, we’ve always kept what the reader wants in mind and hope you enjoyed what we had to offer.
If you bought ebooks from them, you will have just over two weeks to download your purchases
and strip the DRM.
That is really not enough time for a long-time customer to download their entire library, but at least it is better than the 3-day warning that All Romance eBooks gave to its customers before shutting down in late December.
