In the last few days I’ve run a number of reports regarding resignations at British graphic novel publisher Insomnia Publishing. Yesterday founder and managing director Crawford Coutts posted on his blog;
Spring Cleaning Completed.
After several months of spring cleaning, I’m very pleased to announce that Insomnia is now a slimmer, lighter, faster and an even more dynamic publishing company.
Yes, we are changing, and as always, we are adapting to ensure the company is in a strong position in the market place and has the ability to enter into new and emerging markets. We’re expanding into digital areas more aggressively to give us greater exposure and boost profitability, but we’ll still be producing printed books. During the further restructuring of the company over the last few months, Nic Wilkinson, Alasdair Duncan and Martin Conaghan have all decided to resign from their middle-management positions.
Matt Gibbs has chosen to resign from Script Editing formally for the company to focus on his own writing of his books. It’s a great shame to see him go as he has a fantastic talent, and especially with all the positive feedback from the half-dozen or so teams he was working with, he was doing a grand job. I’m sure he will continue to provide his knowledge and expertise within the Insomnia community on a more relaxed level in the future and I’m very excited to see what he’s producing.
This will not affect any of the books.
My aim is to ensure all of Insomnia’s books are published and, as I set out to do, we’re continuing to strive for high quality publications. Our Sub-Editors, Lauren and Alex are continuing to provide their expert advice and assist with the production of the books.
I guess some people just don’t like change, but Insomnia Publications is here to stay and will continue to do whatever it takes to succeed.
Roll on the summer and the new titles due out in the next few months.
MD & Editor in Chief.
Yeah, I think this is a case of things that make you go Hmm….
