WP #183 - How to Find a Reputable Small Press

Published 2 months ago • 1 min read

Dear Reader,

This week, I did not set out to revisit the City Owl Press controversy, but here we are.

Small presses fill a necessary niche in the publishing world today, but finding a reputable small press is not a straightforward process.

The recent kerfuffle at City Owl Press underlines how difficult the choice can be.

Please read How to Find a Reputable Small Press because I know that not everyone wants to go indie, and your decision may vary on a book-by-book basis.

Today's post contains loads of additional resources and tips.
