Samhain Revised Site is Up

Filed under: Uncategorized — toursbooks @ 8:47 pm

Last year Samhain decided to stop carrying books by other publishers in their online store.  This announcement was made shortly after the online site was down for weeks for a revamp.  Well, they’re down again for another revamp.  This time, it isn’t just the My Bookstore and More that’s down, it’s the main Samhain site as well.

The launch of the news site is scheduled for Jan 16th – and it’s up and running.  Samhain

The store page is a bit messy,  code showing in spots, but I’m sure they’ll clean it up soon.
