Goodbye from Fair Spark Books
Hope you are all extremely well out there and staying safe.
This is the toughest announcement I have had to make since starting Fair Spark Books.
As you know this year has not gone the way anyone planned. Everyone the world over has been affected by Covid-19 and sadly Fair Spark is one of those caught in the financial cross hairs.
Sales have not moved since March when this all took effect and sadly the costs of running the business has meant we can no longer keep the doors open. We are simply out money, options and time.
This means that we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to cancel all future releases, cease production entirely and close the doors of Fair Spark Books Publishing Imprint. We will still be working on our other projects including our new small press marketplace buysmallpress.com and our continued work with our charity partner Little Heroes Comics.
We will only be producing The Spark Magazine up to issue 8 due to Kickstarter promises/commitments and then also close this down.
Having all your love and support since day one has been Incredible and will never be forgotten, we hope you know how much this hurts. It’s not a decision we make lightly. This has come after a very long and heart-breaking process and we are utterly crushed to have to end things like this but we have unfortunately been beaten. Our only hope is that in the future we can revive our mission to bring great quality all ages comics to kids everywhere, but as it stands that’s no longer the case.
All creators with stock of their books currently with us, will be given them to try to sell themselves. So hopefully the Fair Spark titles will still be available one way or another. Just no longer through us.
We wish them every success for the future and all the best moving forward.
And you, our loyal customers and supporters. We cannot begin to thank you enough for all you’ve done for us.
Continue to buy and read amazing all ages comics and hopefully we’ll meet again some day.
