Monday Musings: In which I Happily Shill for My Publishers This Christmas (A Small Press Link Salad)

Written By: Tracy - Nov• 22•10

Statistically speaking, about half of the small businesses that fail do so within the first year. 95 percent of them fail within the first 5 years. That sounds dismal, doesn’t it?

I say that to say this: Christmas is coming, and if you know of a small press that is out there, consider giving books as Christmas gifts. The other day, I recommended Yard Dog Press. Here are a couple of other small presses that are worth a look:

Dragon Moon Press: They have a large selection of titles. Books that I’ve read from them that I can personally recommend include epic fantasy books such as Maggie Bonham’s Lachlei and Selena Rosen’s Sword Masters.

Wolfsinger Publications: I am currently reading James K. Burk’s novel The Twelve in E-Book Format. I’m proud to be a part of their anthology Wolfsongs Vol I.

Meadowhawk Press: This is a small press based in Memphis. They published the novel Terminal Mind, which was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick award.

Samsdot Publishing: Samsdot is the publisher of Aoife’s Kiss, which is a dynamic small press magazine that likes to deliver speculative fiction you won’t find anywhere else. Which is saying a lot, considering that it’s a speculative fiction magazine.

Norilana Books: Currently puts out The Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Sword and Sorceress anthologies as well as a science fiction anthology in the same vein entitle Warrior Wisewoman.  The house also recently put out an Austen/Monster mashup book entitled Mansfield Park and Mummies that I enjoyed.  

Finally, although I’ve already posted about Yard Dog Press, I received a note in the mail from Lynn the other day. The company is having a Cyber Monday Sale.

"FREE with EVERY order — Selina Rosen’s Chains of Freedom, part one of the Chains series.

No need to push any buttons. This great book will automatically be included ABSOLUTELY FREE with EVERY order that is placed between 12:01 AM and midnight on Cyber Monday, 11/29/10."  

Additionally, YDP is running a holiday sale on all of their regular titles:

"Chains of Freedom, Chains of Destruction, and Strange Robby are each only $5.00 for the holidays — OR — if your order totals $50.00 or more, you can buy all three of these great titles for only $10.00!"

"Sword Masters $10.00 –OR– $5.00 with purchase of Jabone’s Sword at full price ($17.00)."

"Free shipping to the US, APO, FPO–all domestic shipping–for orders totaling $60.00 and up. This is only good through 12/31/10, so shop early and save. (Calculated at check out.)"
