Posts Tagged ‘C.M. Mayo’

As an author whose 6 books have been published by Indie publishers (Lite Circle Books, Vegetarian Resource Group, Cold Moon Press, and Mockingbird Lane Press), I’m always interested when I hear of someone starting a new Indie Press.

Founding an independent press requires optimism, a willingness to learn, hard work, and a love of books – not to mention luck and a little bit of money. A friend who founded an Indie press said she was motivated by a desire to publish the kind of books she liked to read. Another friend began a press to publish her own books just the way she wanted them to be published, then began accepting book manuscripts from other writers. Still another friend founded an Indie press because she was interested in books that promoted certain ideas in which she believed.

I just read a good interview of Bacon Press Books founder, Michele Orwin, on writer C.M. Mayo’s blog. I think you’ll find it informative.

For those who write speculative work, a good source for locating Indie publishers of genre books is Ralan.com.

If you want to check out my Indie press published books (Owl Light, The Greener Forest, The Enchanted Skean, etc.) – you can see them (and maybe purchase one or more) on Amazon and elsewhere.
