Important Announcement

Dear friends of Farolight/Cutting Block,

It’s with a heavy heart that I must report Farolight Publishing, and its flagship imprint Cutting Block Books, will soon join the long list of small genre presses forced by circumstances to close their doors. In our case, fiscal pressures and recent health issues for me personally, means the time’s come to make a graceful exit from the publishing stage.

To our readers, I can’t emphasize enough how much I’ve appreciated your support these past 16 years. To my colleagues and friends, I would not have traded this experience for anything; I’m glad to have known each and every one of you.

Here’s what you can expect in the coming weeks:

* All of our titles will gradually slip into “out of print” status on Amazon and on every other book-seller’s website. Remaining copies will be sold on a first-come, first served basis until that time.

* Within a month or so, the Farolight website and social media presence will disappear. We’ll post the occasional update on those.

One more thing to mention… we’re working to provide the Horror Library imprint a new home. I’m excited that we’ve found another small press with the seriousness and chops to keep the quality level as high as always. Once the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed, we’ll announce the new publishing home of the Horror Library anthology series!

Thanks again for having traveled part of your reading/writing path with Cutting Block and Farolight. You made the journey worthwhile.

Warmest regards,

Patrick Beltran

Owner / Publisher
