Our Publishing Model

We have evolved a publishing model that allows us to publish books of high quality without becoming overwhelmed with bookkeeping and mailing, cash-flow crunches, “grant hustling,” or taxing editorial and production bubbles. Our approach is designed to maximize resilience and our ability to vet and publish books while minimizing stress and chaos. Time efficiency, stability, and a steadily growing catalog of well-crafted, eclectic books are our main priorities. We are dedicated to giving all of our authors the care their work deserves, making our catalog the most distinguished it can be, and paying forward any earnings to fund more great books.
