I hadn’t planned on such a long period of silence, but we’ve been working behind the scenes on a printing “experiment.” For years, we’ve been keeping things simple. I’ve always printed inner pages at home on either plain white or linen stock. Almost always digest-sized, almost always 24 to 32 pages. Covers had been printed at a variety of places, either on colored cardstock or white. Always straight to letter size. Recently, I’ve been outsourcing covers with a slight production cost increase, but now we’re trying to print to larger-size cover stock and cutting down to letter size. If it all goes as planned, our first chapbook of the year (out next week) from Juliet Cook will feature a full-bleed, wrap-around cover. But it’ll come at a price. (Just how much remains to be seen. I’ll post an update with that information.)
Juliet’s chapbook had been planned for release a couple weeks earlier, but that shouldn’t affect our schedule as we prepare chapbooks from Jessica Purdy and Karen Kilcup into the Summer. There will be an April update with a general release schedule after Juliet’s chapbook is out. Get ready!
