This Could Be the Last Year for Crisis Chronicles Press

Earlier this week, I calculated total sales and expenses for Crisis Chronicles Press. Our expenses were higher in 2017 than in any other year since our founding (in 2008). Meanwhile our total sales in 2017 were the lowest they've been in any year since I began keeping comprehensive records (in 2012). Take a break-even endeavor, increase expenses and significantly decrease revenue and, well, despite my best efforts, it becomes even less sustainable than it already was. Several great small presses went under in 2017, and I can understand why. But don't worry. If this one ever does, we will fulfill all our publishing commitments first. I'm very excited about the 12 books we have coming out in 2018, and I know you will love them. Meanwhile, please feel free to buy some of our great already published titles to support this ongoing work. And thank you from the deepest chambers of my heart to those to have already done so (in some cases, repeatedly) these past 10 years. However long it lasts, it's been a good run.


  1. Well I hope maybe you will reconsider. But whatever you decide I thank you wholeheartedly for all the work you've done with the press and the introductions to some exceptional writers. And, I wish you much luck in where ever you put your talents next.
    Thanks for all your hard work John. <3
