The end of Musa Publishing

It's been a tough few days since learning suddenly Friday morning that Musa Publishing is closing down. I was completely taken off-guard by the announcement, and had been ready for episode 5 to come out. Instead...the future of Spire City is uncertain right now.

But it is definitely not ending.

I have to take stock for a bit here and decide the best way forward, but I am committed to the entire three seasons of the series coming out. Whether that means finding a new publisher or self-publishing, I don't know yet. But I'm hoping to make that decision within the next few weeks. So stay tuned. And I hope for other Spire City-related things over the next few months as well, apart from the main series itself. So, despite the frustration, I'm very hopeful for the future of the series, and hope to have more information to share soon.

Sorry to hear about this, but I was wondering how healthy they were after they shuttered Penumbra. Publishing is a really nasty business with a high turnover :(

Yeah, I've seen so many publishers come and go, and obviously Penumbra's closing showed that they weren't finding enough subscribers for that. But still, it was quite on a shock Friday morning. Thanks.
