    Laymon and Thunderstorm are a great fit. Paul at TSB has a great record of getting books out in a timely manner as well.

    Or a whole new line of nice Laymon reprints at Thunderstorm Books, that would also be a good fit.

    There is a good chance Kelly is familiar with Brian's work as they have worked together before.

    I don't know why, but I always forget about SST. And they'd be a great fit for Laymon's works.

    There's "some inconsistency" and then there's DRP and CD. In Laymon's Terms has already been mentioned; other CD titles have been stuck in limbo (with money already collected from customers, mind you) for even longer. DRP is the lesser of two evils here, but even then my preorder for the three Laymon titles goes back to 2015, so, again, this goes beyond "some inconsistency."

    Anyhow to answer kshane's question, SubPress and Suntup seem to hit their target release windows far more often than not. Centipede is also decent, except on the really big titles (looking at you, Dune) - however I suspect that's more a product of Jerad typically not even making an official announcement until the books are rolling at the printers, and not taking preorders until they're en route to him.

    One of the reasons there won't be any more books from Dark Regions is because all three Laymon hardcovers were delayed. I can't imagine she was thrilled that IN LAYMON'S TERMS took ten years to come out either.

    People were asking above about other possible Laymon releases (which I would love to see happen too), but let's just say that I am confident Kelly doesn't want another publisher who delays books by years. Hence my question. Are there any small press publishers who are able to consistently publish on time? I honestly don't know. But if there are, Kelly might want to work with them and Laymon fans could get more Laymon books published.

    Just letting everyone know that MIDNIGHT'S LAIR is the third and final book from Dark Regions - they will not be publishing any other Laymon books. Kelly has said in podcasts and on facebook that she is working on a new edition of A WRITER'S TALE and it would be published by the guys from Deadline. When will it be published? I don't know.

    Kelly also said she was planning on ebook reprints for some books - including A STRANGER'S ARMS.

    I would really love for someone to come out with more Laymon hardcovers. Are there any reputable small press publishers who always publish on time? Maybe Kelly could be persuaded to try a small press again if she is confident that the hardcovers will be published without any delays.

    Kelly Laymon was the first person I directly communicated with at Cemetery Dance when started buying from them. Had an issue with a shipment and she was fantastic to deal with. I would really love to see DRP produce an edition of "A Writers Tale"!

    Thank you for all the feedback. I like DRP books and thought I would give this one a try.
