February 2007 Newsletter

Dear Friend,

The New Year started with a bit of a surprise for us. Without going into technical details, I will summarize by saying that the corporate owner of our book distributor declared bankruptcy, thereby, drawing nearly 130 small publishers like Parallax into a serious financial quandry. The distributor's role is to bring our books directly or via wholesaler into all bookstores.

While we are well under way of implementing a solution this nonetheless has dealt us a significant financial setback against the already tight finances of nonprofit publishing.

Now, more than ever, you can support our publishing program by ordering directly from our website. Parallax Press is glad to offer special discounts that compare to the enticing discounts of bigger bookselling chains.

From Feb. 9/07 - Mar 9/07, Parallax online customers will receive a 25% discount on any Parallax Press title. * Please note that this offer does not apply to books from other publishers. The discount is applied to the order invoice, it is not reflected on our book pages.

Again, thank you to all who have supported us so loyally. We deeply appreciate your dedication.

Parallax Open House - Follow Up

Our first Open House on January 24, was a wonderful success with Parallax supporters. Thank you to those who dropped in to share a cup of tea and a cookie and browse our bookshelves. It is encouraging to have our readers and authors gathered together and we look forward to planning another event later this year.
