We are announcing yet another intermission to the online activity across our multiple sites!
We are resuming our fundraising effort for Arcane Publishing, very much needed to develop the business and secure the printing costs of Miss Gish's third novel The Right Place, due to be published in late 2023.
This final intermission is scheduled to end in early April 2022, but do keep an eye on the Arcane Publishing Instagram as we will be posting some items from time to time on there until I am in the position to resume work properly on The Right Place and all Arcane business!
