Today we announce that Nevermet Press is closed until further notice.
After over three years of running the blog and publishing a few select RPG and fiction products, I simply do not have the time to continue to working on new projects, the blog, or maintaining our existing catalog. It’s been great fun and I have learned a great deal about the gaming industry and “indie” publishing along the way – but sadly I must close Nevermet Press. My professional career and familial responsibilities simply no longer leave enough bandwidth in my daily life to maintain Nevermet Press in a reasonable way. Perhaps in the future time and energy will find me again, but until then I bid you farewell.
Effective immediately all products in the Nevermet Press catalog will no longer be sold to through any distributors. Termination of sales orders have been issued to Amazon, Lulu, Smashwords, DTRPG, etc – so it may take a couple weeks for those orders to be processed. I have a pretty hefty collection of print books still in my “in-house” inventory, so I may sell those on eBay individually – but that remains to be seen. Truth be told – sales have been abysmal across the board for over a year, so there’s not much motivation to even try to sell the print books I do have on hand.
Nevermet Press is also no longer able to actively maintain the RPG Blog Carnival Archive, and I want to encourage another, established member of the RPG Blogging Community to take the RPG Blog Carnival Archive and maintain it themselves.
Our website, nevermetpress.com, will remain online but be slowly edited/trimmed down as I have time to do so. I’ll also still be tweeting occasionally on Twitter – so chat me up over there as well. As far as the site is concerned, I will be removing all advertising, catalog information, and other “peripheral” aspects of the site first. My goal is to leave the blogging content and short stories up for as long as I can, and to keep the domain name for the foreseeable future. This also leaves me the option to kickstart things again in the future if ever I find the time.
I want to thank everyone who has contributed to Nevermet Press over the years. It’s been an amazing journey and I’ve made some real friends and worked with some great people. A huge thank you goes out to our readers and fans who have supported us as well. Without you – nothing would have been possible.
Best regards and best wishes to everyone — Jonathan.
