Laying the Past to RestTwo years ago I took over Mystic Press unknowing what I was getting myself into. When I shut down many authors got hurt and since then it has been one battle after another. I never meant to hurt anyone, nor was it my intention.Mystic was tainted from the beginning. I did everything I could but nothing could save it. In the process things have spiraled out of control. I have come in contact with several people and yes I have lost my temper.For the authors that got caught in the crossfire i do apologize. It was never my intention for anyone to get hurt, but things were out of my control.
To Janrae Frank if i had the wrong information about you I apologize. I understand you have been in this business for a long time but you have been where I am. I do hope we can put our differences aside and talk things through.
To JT Larson, you and I have had our share of words but I am trying to be the bigger person and move on. I am sorry your daughter got hurt. I will make sure she is taken care of and will do my best to ensure that she gets what is hers.
Thea Larson, I wish you the best of luck and even though we did not see eye to eye on your writing I wish you the best. I sincerely apologize for all the previous actions. I think its fair to say that what happened between Thea and myself was an unfortunate series of miscommunications. I take responsibility for my part and my actions. I assure you that you will receive what you deserve and I guarantee it. I do apologize but this is the time for it to all end. I wish you the best with your book and hope you do well. I am trying to make this right and I do hope you see that. I am trying to solve the problem and I see this is the way to do it.
I am putting this to rest and I sincerely apologize for what has happened this past couple of years. You have your own style of writing and just because I don’t agree doesn’t mean that you won’t have a ton of fans. I do wish you the best.
You will receive what is owed to you. And if I can do anything for you or your mother please let me know.
I am being the better person here and doing what i believe is right. I wish you all the best. I do hope we can move on and forgot this horrible experience. I do believe we all want it to end.
I wish all of you the best and I do hope we can grow and learn from this. I have. Being a young publisher it is hard. But please understand this, the things you have said about me are not true. Yes i have made mistakes, i am not perfect, but my authors are taken care of.
I am not saying nothing is my fault, I am not saying that I am innocent. I am saying we all make mistakes. I took over a tainted company and did the best I could with what I had. For those that got hurt my deepest apologies. I wish you all the best, and please accept this apology. I do hope this will end the hate and we can all move forward.
I am doing this and making a formerly apology for all those that were hurt through Mystic Press. I wish things could have ended differently but unfortunately I can not fix the past but i can show a better future, which i am doing now with Phoenix Fire. I have a wonderful group of authors.
For those that got hurt with the closing of Mystic, i do apologize, but at the time i had no other choice. I wish you all the best. I can only apologize for my actions no one else’s. If anyone has any questions feel free to contact me.
If Tabetha’s willing to make good on her debt to my daughter, accept responsibility and issue an apology, I consider my affairs with her square and finished. I hope that everybody involved reaches the same level of resolution.
