Good news (de Lint), Bad News (Amazon)

It's never boring here at Tachyon HQ, which is mostly a good thing. Here's what we're up to:

To celebrate the release of Charles de Lint's epic fantasy novel, Eyes Like Leaves, we're having a special giveaway Join the Eyes Like Leaves Facebook page and you could win one of several sets of the novel *and* a signed CD of Charles and MaryAnn's music. Great stuff! The giveaway will be a random drawing on March 7th, so don't forget to drop by.

The news that Amazon has refused to renew their e-book contract with our distributor, IPG, has sent shockwaves throughout the publishing community. Because IPG would not accept yet another increase in Amazon's already steep discount, Amazon has chosen to remove the Kindle books of all of IPG's publishers. You cannot buy our e-books, or any of the more than 4000 e-books from IPG's publishers, on Amazon. Period.

All of our titles remain widely available in both print and electronic editions (EPUB and PDF formats). You can find them at your local independent bookshop and through Indiebound, Barnes and Noble, Appleā€™s iTunes, Google Books, the Sony store, and elsewhere. We'll keep you posted on how things shake out.
