I thought this was the single best article I’ve seen about working with a small publisher. I’ve published both my books with a small press, J.B. Max Publishing, out of Vancouver, BC. I agree with many of the points in the article by WritersDigest.com editor Brian Klems, but here are my top three:
1. A small press can take on projects that don’t conform to the mainstream commercial market.
2. A small press cares about the success of a book beyond its initial release. To quote: “It’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
3. Small press authors can expect to have a personal relationship with small presses, or as one small press publisher cites it, “Tender, loving care.”
Thank you, Writers Digest, for covering this subject. For the full article, please see the following:
