Adamant Entertainment is a sole proprietorship, plus freelancers. The company is run by me, Gareth-Michael Skarka, and when I’m incapacitated, so is the company. The picture at left is a shot taken by my wife a couple of weeks ago — I was unexpectedly hospitalized with a sudden infection.
At the risk of giving you too much information, it was serious. A severe case of diverticulitis which resulted in the removal of 12 inches of my colon, and a secondary severe abdominal abscess, which they thankfully caught before it burst (which, I am told, would have likely resulted in severe enough peritonitis to kill me). This resulted in a 9-day hospital stay, and an estimated 6-8 week recovery period involving at-home nurse care and an eventual secondary operation to repair the colon (another week-long stay in the hospital). In short — it’s bad.
As such, I cannot run the day-to-day operations of the business, and so I’m putting Adamant on hiatus until I’m fully recovered.
Let me be perfectly clear: WE ARE NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. I am simply hitting the “pause” button while I heal. I expect to get Adamant back on track this Spring.
I know that there are folks who have pre-orders for Adamant product, and those will be honored — they’re just delayed while I handle the business of getting well.
Thank you for your patience, and I’ll see you in May or June.
