The following notice was posted on the front page of the Humdrumming Publishing website this week:
Sadly the time has come for Humdrumming to close its doors and wrap up the company.
With a large amount of money owed to us, and with the poor state of the economy this year, we were unfortunately not in a position where the company could sustain itself.
After a year of wonderful releases, fantastic support at the BFS FantasyCon, and a wonderful group of authors all pitching in to help out, it really saddens us to have to do this.
Lee Thompson and Trudi Topham would like to thank all of you who have bought from Humdrumming in the past, all of you who have supported not only us, but the small presses in general, and our authors; without all of you, we would not have enjoyed the time we spent in business.
If you have placed an order for one of our available titles, please rest assured that these have now been shipped out and should be arriving shortly. Please remember that it can sometimes take up to two weeks for international deliveries to arrive.
We appreciate that some of you will be-out of-pocket as a result of our closing down. For this we can only apologise. Previous company directors (and shareholders) Lee Thompson and Guy Adams invested a large amount of their own money in to the company, an investment that they will not see again, and we ask that you understand this was not a decision taken lightly.
Our affairs are being handled by David Chappell of GCP, and if you have any questions regarding outstanding invoices please contact him via DavidChappellGCP@aol.com.
Thank you once again for your support,
Trudi Topham & Lee Thompson
on behalf of Humdrumming Ltd.
