1. The sad thing
As you may have noticed (and, judging from my inbox, many have) it’s been all quiet on the In Treehouses front this summer. It therefore may not come as a huge surprise that, after more than 2 years and 22 editions, I’ve made the decision to discontinue the magazine.
It’s one of those “I’ve taken it as far as it can go” type situations, in short. I’ve enjoyed every issue I’ve made, been enlightened by interview I’ve conducted, and been humbled by the wonderful response from readers.
As much as I’ll miss all that, though, I’d rather wrap up the magazine than continue to publish when my heart’s not in it. I’m proud of the body of work that the magazine represents, and I’d like to keep it that way.
It’s not all sad news, though—now that the magazine is done, I’ve made every issue from 2011 and 2012 (that’s 14 editions in total) available to download for free.
No email, no secret handshake, nothing. Just head over here and pick up your copies.
2. The happy thing
While In Treehouses may be no more, I’m delighted to let you know that Magazines for the Rest of Us is once again available. What’s more, you can get it at a discount for the next few days.
The response from the first wave of sign-ups was brilliant, so if you want to discover more for yourself then simply head over here.
And don’t forget The Micropublisher, a magazine project that’s running until the end of 2012. We’re 7 editions in so far, and the response has been consistently fantastic from readers through the year. You can learn more here.
3. The other thing
Now that In Treehouses is no longer on my production schedule, I do have some more time to pursue other projects. So, while there may be a little less magazine in your life, you can rest assured that something new is coming very soon from Mountain & Pacific.
Stay tuned for more on that front. Until then, thanks so very much for reading and for all your support. I appreciate it.
