Triskelion has published some very entertaining reads, my favorites probably being Shelly Laurentson’s Pack series which is now available at Samhain. We’ve been critical of its editing but not necessarily of the books. Triskelion has, however, hit some rocky ground. The news is flying today that Triskelion has been disinvited to RWA and therefore there will not be any Triskelion related promotions or editor meetings.
It is also rumored that Triskelion will not be putting out print titles. I find this ironic because when Blog Happy and I were at the bookstore the other day, we both commented on the Triskelion mass markets. (readers like mass markets). I can’t help but wonder whether the decision to not move forward with print titles will void some contracts. Triskelion actually sent print review copies to bookstores to assist sales which might also be why it was able to sell sufficient titles to meet the RWA guidelines to be a recognized publisher.
It was previously announced that RWA would be rethinking its guidelines on RWA publisher recognition status. There’s no word from RWA whether it is tightening its belt or loosening it or whether its move now has anything to do with Triskelion’s purported troubles. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything more.
