In a not surprising move, Resurgence on sale for 100k by way of a firm from TX (HT Throckmorton)

Since this was sort of a topic raised by Wenatchee The Hatchet in the wake of Sutton Turner's resignation ...

it's not a surprise to read news that Resurgence and associated properties are up for sale.

But what properties does Resurgence even have at this point?  Many of the authors who were published through the Re:Lit imprint retained the copyright to their work and the Resurgence itself was basically a wholly owned subsidiary of Mars Hill and Mark Driscoll retained the intellectual property of nearly everything he ever published. 

But whether the sale includes Resurgence Publishing Inc could get a little more clarification.

Since pretty much from start to finish these days John Sutton Turner seems to be the manager it would seem that Resurgence being up for sale by way of peeps in Texas would be nearly inevitable.
The Resurgence didn't used to be a for-profit corporation, did it?  At some point it may have been a non-profit umbrella but Wenatchee is no longer sure.  If the company is selling for the zone of 100k it's not clear whether or not it ever actually turned a significant profit just yet.

Earlier this year Wenatchee speculated that ...
"a possible future for Driscoll, head to TX under the "covering" of Robert Morris who could then send Driscoll out to plant in OC, a speculation "

There's no confirmation as yet whether the Driscolls still live in Washington state.  The house in Seattle may have finally sold recently but since the house in Woodway was deeded over to Driscoll's sister last year anyway it may be that the Driscolls do not formally or directly own any real estate.

But the question about Resurgence Publishing was ultimately likely when and not if it was going to be put up for sale and who would be announcing the sale.
