Over the past week, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu contributor Nerine Dorman has been generous enough host other anthology contributors on her blog This Is My World. So far five posts have appeared, each one offering a glimpse into the inspiration for the various stories and also the writer’s connection to Wraeththu.
Authors (and editors) who’ve appeared so far, with links to their posts:
Our first responsibility is to our readers, to provide books that educate and entertain, and meet the needs they have and want fulfilled by quality fiction and non-fiction. We hold ourselves to a high standard of excellence in publishing books that our readers want, with the appropriate citations when needed, and with editing and layout done professionally to produce a book that is readable and memorable to the reader. What we offer must be of the highest quality, offered at a reasonable price that allows our readers to get what they want from the book, and in the process feel that they are valued and respected as members of our audience.
Our second responsibility is to the communities we are apart of. We must actively contribute to the welfare and success of the community in a manner that demonstrates respect for the communities we are a part of while also showing the world wide community that we are citizens who want to contribute to the world.
Our third responsibility is to our authors and artists, to respect their voice, their artistic vision and enable them to produce work they can be proud of. We serve our authors and artists, by not only helping them become better at what they do, but also become better at presenting themselves to their communities. We want the creative people who come to us to feel taken care of and valued and respected for the work they do, and confident that they will be treated with the highest level of respect while their work is with us. We also want them to make a reasonable profit on their creative work that can be used to help them take care of what is most important to them.
Our fourth and final responsibility is to ourselves, to make a reasonable profit in publishing books, while also staying true to our values and to the services we provide the communities we are a part of. Our profit should never come before the service we provide our readers, community, or authors, but rather should come about as a natural result of showing that we genuinely care about the welfare of our readers, community, and creative authors and artists.
The Flowering Rod by Pagan Author and Musician Kenny Klein is being pulled from our line of Esoteric Non-Fiction books as a response to the recent news that Kenny Klein has been charged of downloading and sharing child pornography. Mr. Klein has admitted his guilt in this matter, and we do not feel that we can, in good conscience, continue to publish his book. We are removing the book from our line-up effective immediately. At Immanion Press we do not believe in knowingly supporting acts of behavior that violate the Pagan community or how it is represented to the world by our authors. We are committed to publishing books that help the communities we are a part of, but we also believe that any author is a role model and should behave accordingly. We offer our condolences to people who have been effected negatively by this situation or any other actions Mr. Klein has done.
Turquoiselle by Tanith Lee is now available in Print. The kindle version will be available in the near future.
Not much is what it seems.
The job can be dull, but quite demanding – it involves a lot of driving, often very long hours, an always erratic schedule. Not to mention social duties with certain important clients. The work is lucrative, however. He can easily afford the house in Kent, and the costly wants of Donna, his partner. For someone like Carver, dragged up through a deprived and abused childhood, not such a bad achievement.
It’s just that suddenly things are running less smoothly. This stuff with Donna… Various unusual tensions at work… the bizarre and threatening business over Silvia…
In the end, maybe all you can rely on is yourself.
A dark speculative thriller, this is the seventh in Tanith Lee’s captivating The Colouring Book series.
