Small Press Book Subscription    A literary mail subscription for adventurous readers!

Take a literary leap!  Join our new Small Press Book Subscription. Each month we will mail you a new Small Press selection – an adventurous pick that will traverse the literary landscape – from fiction to poetry to non-fiction; varied voices that will challenge, engage, & inspire.  Discover new voices and new publishers not commonly featured in mainstream literary forums.

_________________________________________________

In March we began our new adventurous initiative – The Small Press Book Subscription.  With so many great little subscription services out there, I thought it would be fun to create one that I would personally enjoy.  There are a plethora of fantastic small presses out in the world, and I always have sought out books that were born within this realm.  Book after book, I discover more voices and more stories that I thoroughly enjoy and want to share with others.  Fortunately, I have been able to curate the shop and offer some of my favorites, but after a while I wanted to widen my scope.

How do I reach more people?  How can I make it exciting?  How can I make it special?  How can I open up about what I love in literature and connect with others?  In March, I started answering these questions and the Small Press Book Subscription was born.

Each month I mail out (subscribers are from TX, CA, MA, PA, & beyond) a secret small press book selection, a small gift hand-picked from the shop, a zine that shares info on the author, title, and publisher, and entry into our virtual Facebook Small Press Book Club.  Plus Free Shipping!

The beauty of the service is threefold : 1) You are introduced to gorgeous new literature.  This subscription is for adventurous readers only – readers who want to challenge their perceptions of literature and be open to new (and important) voices.  2) You are supporting a small independent publisher - and helping to support and develop a culture that fosters originality and creativity.  My intention is to introduce you to a new small press every month – a one book introduction that could spiral into the joyful discovery of a new favorite author or publisher.  3) So much more!  You are supporting an Indie Bookstore (that’s me!).  You get a gift hand-picked from the shop.  Entry to the virtual facebook group. Free Shipping. & a really impressive goodreads “read” list.

So – are you excited?  We currently offer a month-to-month, 3 month, and 6 month subscription service.  The more months you sign up for up front, the more you save.  Many of our subscribers have also discovered what a wonderful gift this for a bookish friend or family member. If you are ready to take the literary leap – head over here to sign up : Small Press Book Subscription.   

Here’s the line-up of the first four months to give you a taste of how eclectic and unique our offering is.
