Update: The website has been updated and the publishing house is closing its doors after a little over 1 year in operation.
I’m not quite clear on all the details so I’ll just report what I’ve been emailedand what I can glean from message boards. Tiger Publications is a small print press. According to my sources, Tiger Publications is closing its doors despite the lack of any announcement on its websites and seemingly conflicting messages online:
- “As of today, one of my clients, Tiger Publications, has ceased operation and closed shop permanently.” Link (music)
- “I am guest blogging as part of the Tiger Author spotlight at Bragging Rites Unleashed! ” (June 2 post)
The google pages show that there once was an announcement but the cache pages have been scrubbed of any signs of it except in the search engine summary.
One poster at Absolute Write forum stated that there are two divisions within Tiger Publications–Tiger and Tiger Kids–and it is Tiger that is shutting down. There is no differentiation that I can see between the two divisions on the website although on the submissions page, there are different email addresses. According to the same poster, the email to the YA submission mailbox was returned to her. I sent an email to the same address and it apparently went through.
As recently as April 2008, Dona Parus, an author herself writing as Sloan St James, was interviewed about the new publishing venture. Ultimately, I’m not sure if Tiger Publications is shutting down or is keeping going but given the contradictory reports (ie. emails authors received versus the website), I thought it worth a mention.
