A FableCroft Announcement

The time has come, the walrus said, to speak of many things…

Next Sunday, at Conflux, we will be launching Tansy Rayner Roberts’ Mocklore collection, Bounty. This launch will take place 5.30pm at the Novotel Canberra on Northbourne Ave. And it will be the final book we produce for the foreseeable future.

FableCroft will be in indefinite hiatus following Conflux. Due to my family circumstances, and with an interstate move (and the new job that will hopefully come with that) at the end of the year, I no longer have the time or financial resources to devote to the press. I have been thinking about this for several months, and come to this decision (as with many others this year) with much regret and sadness.

I am extraordinarily grateful to my wonderful authors, artists, designers and proofreaders for their willingness to work with me over the past six years, and feel very privileged to have been able to publish your wonderful work. And thank YOU to every person who has supported FableCroft during this time, as a reader, reviewer, retweeter etc – you’re all awesome!

I will not say this is a final farewell, because perhaps, hopefully, I will one day be in a position to revitalise the press once more. I’d certainly like to, as I love this gig enormously. But life is life, and sometimes you have to put stuff aside – for a little while or a long one – and focus on other things.

At this stage, FableCroft anthologies will still be available in print and ebook from your preferred e-tailer (and on this site while print stocks last), but I am negotiating with writers regarding single author collections and novels and some of these will revert to their author.

Again, my thanks. I look forward to seeing the many creators we have published since 2010 flourish!fare-thee-well

  3. I am selfishly sad not to be able to look forward to many more wonderful Fablecroft books, but I’m glad you’ve made the decision that’s right for you. You’ve contributed so many wonderful books to the world!

    Hugs, Tehani. It is a real honour to have had a story published with Fablecroft and to have gotten to work with you and know you as a friend in Canberra. All the very best with whatever adventures come your way. xxx

    Sad! How can I get a copy of the book if I’m not going to be at Conflux?

    Tansy’s book? It will be available from good online retailers (like Booktopia: http://www.booktopia.com.au/bounty-tansy-rayner-roberts/prod9780994469052.html) or you could ask Stefen at Stefen’s Books to order you in a copy, perhaps 🙂 It may well also be available direct from this site, but I need to chat to Tansy about that 🙂

    Thank you for all the stories and the inspiration, Tehani (both of the literary and role model variety). I hope one day the stars realign and you’re in a position to give in to a new, irresistible project idea. All the best (and we’ll miss you here in Canberra). xox
