RIP BeWrite Books

Didn't see this posted anywhere else, yet. BeWrite is shutting down at the end of the month:

Quote:
SO LONG AND THANKS FOR ALL THE WISH

BeWrite Books was born with the new millennium at midnight on December 31/January 1, 2000. It dies on March 31, 2013 when this website will be taken down.

It was all about a wish: A wish shared by us, our authors and our readers.

We worked incredibly hard with a dedicated and passionate professional in-house team and some of the most gifted writers imaginable. We were ahead of the game for so long, surviving on tireless labour, wits, cooperation, friendship, love of the art ... and hope. But recent market forces beyond our control force us to call a halt and sadly and most reluctantly wind down to a spring closure.

More than 250 wonderful new works in many genres, created by BB authors over the course of that thirteen-year period, were honed to perfection by a painstaking professional team with nothing more in mind than to expose the greatest books in their best form to the widest possible readership in print and from the very start digital editions.

Our job now is to find effective and prestigious new publishers for BB-published titles and to assist those BB authors who choose to take the self-publishing route. Were working flat-out on that and are succeeding in keeping works alive. But its dispiriting and often heart-breaking to now count our every loss as a success.

We thank our authors and our team for their commitment.

We thank our loyal readers for their support.

Titles in our bookstore will become increasingly unavailable through BeWrite Books and its many third-party retail outlets over the wind-down period but can still be discovered and bought with a quick internet search of title or author. Others will remain available in our store and elsewhere until the end of March.
