Hot off the Printer!

La Muse Press has printed its second print run of Street Magic.

La Muse Press is pleased to announce that Street Magic: Stories and Tales has ran its second print run. As both the publisher and writer, I have decided to reprint Street Magic after three and a half years. I was getting the occasional Amazon.com purchase order, but I didn’t have any books to fulfill the order. Now, there are plenty in stock for you! For 2015, it is my goal to promote Street Magic whether it be scheduling readings, attending book festivals, or reaching out to the media. If you have a book club, I would be happy to arrange a deal for you to buy in bulk at a discounted price. If you are a book reviewer, shoot me an email, and I would be happy to give you a review copy in order for you to pen a review. As a publisher, once you have already published a title and several years go by, it feels like the book is old. However, if no one has ever read or heard of your title, it is new to that person. Take for example, Moby-Dick. The book did not become popular until after Herman Melville’s death. Nevertheless, true literature is timeless. For example, my favorite book of all times is Ann Petry’s The Street, which was published in 1946. So, if you love short story collections that are zany and out of the ordinary, Street Magic is a good read! You can purchase it at Amazon.com or you can contact me directly.

If you haven’t heard of Amanda Hocking, you must have been living under a rock. I’ll admit, I wouldn’t have heard of Hocking if it weren’t for the publishing newsletters I receive in my inbox.

Finding a Book Distributor

One of the biggest challenges facing an indie press is distribution.

In order to have a major book distributor,  usually the publisher needs to have publish a decent amount of titles. Ingram, which is the leading distributor in the

Do you want to be published?

If you’re an aspiring writer, you’re probably asking yourself what are the major differences between a large publishing house and an indie press? Well, two of the major differences are distribution and marketing. A large publishing house has the money to market books on a national level; whereas, an indie press tends to market its products regionally. One of the advantages to working with an indie
