Samhain Publishing to Close Doors

Sad news in the publishing world today as Samhain Publishing President Christina Brashear announced that the small press would soon cease operations. Launched in 2005, the small press published more than 600 authors across genres, from romance to horror. Their popular Retro Romance line returned beloved classics to us in ebook form. Releasing five to six titles per week, the publisher brought us works from such bestselling authors as Maya Banks, Lauren Dane and Tessa Dare. While the company winds down operations, Samhain titles will continue to be for sale. You can see the full email detailing the process here.

We at RT have enjoyed reading many wonderful Samhain titles over the years — and working with the Samhain staff to promote the very best the publishing industry has to offer. We wish everyone at Samhain the very best of luck. Here are some other heartfelt reactions from around the web.

Samhain Publishing will be sorely missed. Thank you for ten years of amazing books and incredible authors.
