So, the rumor mill has it that Iris Print has finally closed up shop.
Something I didn’t mention in my Yaoi Press report was that Yamila Abraham, when asked about publishing yaoi novels as well as comics, said that it tends not to work very well, and pointed to Iris Print as an example– saying that the company has actually closed up shop.

Well isn’t that swell? Iris Print closes up shop and doesn’t bother to tell the creators they have under contract. Nice. So what about our books? What about our titles? :/ I don’t know what to say about this, except that I’m truly disappointed. I’m beyond pissed; I wonder though, where is Amazon getting their re-stock if Iris is out of business? What about all those people who paid pre-orders for Queer Magic? It would’ve been nice to know if she was filing for bankruptcy.
Now, if this is true, not only are we going to be cranky for the authors and artists who are cheated out of their royalties, BUT let's not forget all of the readers who put in for pre-orders of Queer Magic
as part of the last ditch effort to save Iris Print.
