Dear Creator

Due to circumstances beyond our control and increasing
difficulties in finding a viable distributor for our books and
products, I am forced with no other option but to focus on my career
outside of publishing.
This means in simple terms Landwaster Media/Landwaster Books,
Inc. will be shut down.
In fact by the time you receive this letter, all books will no
longer be in print or available for sale from Landwaster, to avoid
any legal or royalty problems that may arise.
You are hereby relieved of all contractual and publishing
obligations in regards to Landwaster Media/Landwaster Books, Inc.
You are free to take any and all properties of yours published
by Landwaster Media/Landwaster Books, Inc. to any other publisher of
your choice and all reproduction rights revert to you the creator in
full.
We have had a good seven year run with our books.
I wish you all the best of luck in your future projects and careers.

Best
Ronald A. Gravelle
Publisher/Vice President
Landwaster Media/ Landwaster Books, Inc.


I'd just like to thank the Gravelles for helping me get my work published. It wasn't always an easy ride, and sometime there were tense moments, but in the end, it's seven years I'm proud to have been part of.Thanks again, guys!! Good luck to all of us in the future, wherever it may take us. It was a helluva ride...
Now I gotta really roll up the sleeves and get to work.

I'm sorry to hear that. :\
Do you think this had anything to do with Diamond's new distribution demands for publishers that they carry?

Incidently, I ran across this on Newsarama's website.

I too am sorry to hear about this.
