Deborah Layne has announced that Wheatland Press will be on hiatus for 2009. No new books will be published, including Polyphony 7. The decision was made for financial reasons, Layne said, and during the hiatus she “will explore ways to put Wheatland Press on a firmer financial footing…. I hope the break will allow me to return to a regular publishing schedule in 2010.” Layne plans to continue to fill orders on existing titles and titles will still be available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com. Authors and others affected have already been informed of the decision.
