Fall 2011 Break & 2012 Super Spring Season

We have not released any books this Fall. The first time since 2002 that we have had no autumn releases. I refuse to use the word "drop," as in "the book drops next week," because it's a horrible phrase that needs to stop being used now.

We hope to get a head start on the Spring 2012 season and maybe get a 2012 pre-order package together. The pre-order would consist of all of the year's books plus a bonus book or broadside, all at a slightly discounted price. We are very excited about this idea and hope to have it up and running this coming spring.

So, where we've often been linking to articles on different literary news, we hope to also let you know how the next season shapes up. Please sign up for our email notifications at

new review of Full Moon on K Street

One of the most pleasant things that has come from our experience of publishing Full Moon on K Street is the seemingly unending gush of positives reviews its been receiving, most recently this one: berniE-zine Book Reviews

We are ever so thankful for having been able to make an impact in the Washington DC literary psyche. A footprint by whatever size is still a footprint. Kim Roberts is a marvel, you know?

the typewriter lives on in India

The Typewriter in India. It's refreshing to see that a technology given up for dead has maintained a presence and purpose in India. Much like the commentary that poetry is dead - or dying - or in decline - or on life support; the news of the demise is greatly exaggerated. Poetry isn't going to be center of our culture in the US, in a country where marketplace determines value something like poetry isn't going to be "valued" all that highly. Yet, it doesn't mean its going to go the way of the Dodo bird either.
