FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DARK HORSE OFFICIALLY JOINS THE DIAMOND FOC PROGRAM!

APRIL 13, MILWAUKIE, OR–Dark Horse officially announces participation in the Diamond “Final Order Cutoff” program, or “FOC” for short. Dark Horse first announced the intent to participate in this program at last fall’s Diamond Retailers summit in Las Vegas, Navada to a roar of applause heard throughout the casino.

Dark Horse’s final FOC dates will be tied to the calendar day twenty days before the Diamond on-sale date for comics, and approximately three months for graphic novels. Dark Horse will begin including FOC dates for some of our line as early as the May 2009 edition of Diamond’s Previews catalog.

“We are pleased to announce this move to the FOC,” Dark Horse President, Mike Richardson stated. “As every comics retailer knows, times are tough. It is important that Dark Horse not only support them with great product, but with our best efforts to make their ordering decisions as easy as possible. This system will help every retailer who orders Dark Horse product and should lead to better business for all of us.”

Dark Horse hopes that participation in the program will help to further instill confidence in the publisher’s consistently strong lineup of releases and continued commitment to the direct sales market in an ever-changing economy.

Dark Horse’s FOC program will begin on Monday, April 20.

John Jarrold’s Corner – Press Release

Hey Guys and Girls, here’s the big announcement I’ve been waiting for since yesterday – John hinted that it would be big, and he’s not joking! 🙂

    PRESS RELEASE

FOUR-BOOK DEAL FOR MALAZ CO-CREATOR

John Jarrold has concluded a four-book World rights deal for Canadian fantasy writer Ian Cameron Esslemont with Simon Taylor of Transworld Publishers in London for a strong five-figure sum in UK pounds. The first book, called STONEWIELDER, is due for delivery in September 2009, and publication in 2010.

Esslemont created the Malaz world with Steven Erikson, and joined his co-creator in writing novels set in the world with NIGHT OF KNIVES, followed by RETURN OF THE CRIMSON GUARD. Both of these books have been published in the UK by Transworld and are being published elsewhere in the world.

‘I’m really delighted about this deal,’ said John Jarrold. ‘Simon Taylor and Transworld have shown their long-term belief in Cam Esslemont, at a time when much of the publishing world is wringing its hands over its shorter-term problems.’

12th December 2008

So there we go! Fans of Esslemont and Erikson’s Malazan universe have known for a while that Stonewielder was on the way, but confirmation like this is awesome! 🙂 Great news, Ian and John!
