After Eugie Foster’s announcement that she hadn’t received royalties for her book with Norilana in three years, Norilana publisher Vera Nazarian announced the reversion of all print rights to all of her authors, noting that if an author wanted to remain with Norilana, she would retain non-exclusive rights for those projects. Nazarian also stated that e-book rights remain with the individual authors and she reiterated her intention to eventually pay all of her authors their full royalties.
After a four year battle, Vera Nazarian is losing her home in California to foreclosure proceedings and will be moving cross-country to Vermont. Nazarian is asking for people to help her out by purchasing books from Norilana Press, which publishes in both paperback and e-book formats.
Vera Nazarian has announced that she has had to postpone publishing the anthologies Lace and Blade 3, Warrior Wisewoman 4, Scheherazade’s Facade, and Clothesline World. Each of these titles have been delayed one year and when it returns, Lace and Blade is expected to have a new editor. In addition, The Ladies of Trade Town has been released and will be published by a different company. Clockwork Phoenix had already planned a year’s hiatus and Sword and Sorceress will not be affected.
