Why We’re Here:
Our books are misfits, unruly works, not easily consigned to a category.
Every day, authors receive from agents and publishers comments like, “Your book is too Christian for the mainstream market and too sexy for the Christian market.” Or, “There are just not enough readers for a story about flamenco.” Or my favorite, “Too western for a literary novel and too literate for a western.”
Every day, books get rejected based upon the potential marketing niche, or lack thereof, regardless of the book’s quality or its value to potential readers. Though we understand the motive behind those considerations, we don’t like them. And what we don’t like, we don’t want to be.
We appreciate the value of money, but money is not our bottom line.
