Midnight Ink Mystery Imprint Closing

midnightMidnight Ink is an imprint of Llewellyn Worldwide, know mostly for their metaphysical book titles. The announcement of the shut down of the mystery imprint came from acquisitions editor Terri Bischoff on her Facebook page:

“As some of you may have heard, Midnight Ink will be shutting its doors after the Spring/Summer 2019 season. That means a few of us, notably [editors] Nicole [Nugent], Sandy [Sullivan], and myself, will be looking for new employment.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all my authors and agents for their hard work over the last nine years. I count so many of you as my friends and I sincerely hope this isn’t the end of my publishing career in crime fiction. You are my extended family and I appreciate all the connections and friendships over the last nine years.

I’m still in a little bit of shock. I didn’t know this was coming. I’m sure there will be much activity and a lot of questions in the near future. I will answer as best I can.”

Midnight Ink began in 2005 and featured “medium to hard-boiled” mysteries. Several bestselling authors under it’s imprint including: Jess Lourey, Brendan DuBois, G.M. Malliet, Steve Hockensmith, Catriona McPherson, E.J. Cooperman and Jeff Cohen, Sue Ann Jaffarian, Kellye Garrett, Keith Raffel, J.D. Allen, Gwen Florio, Leonard Goldberg, Patricia Smiley, and Bill Cameron. The list of Midnight Ink’s final published titles can be found by clicking here.
