... of all things which are merit. We hope that this is the beginning of a long-term relationship with you, the pursuers of "something worth reading", our authors who make a great effort to write that work, and ourselves to be the bridge between. That is really the heart of publishing.
If we had to put a name to our method and philosophy it would be: Fussy! Fussy about the writing, fussy about the details, fussy about the quality! Publishing is a glacial process. Although, as a small press, we can move slightly faster and go beyond the boundaries of tradition, it's still a measured and deliberate process. But in perspective - glaciers carve continents.
So, in that respect, we reserve "cutting edge" to the quality of the writing and we ... fuss about everything else! And in that quality we look for several key things: the ability to transport us, transcend the content, and leave us with a deeper impression. We don't restrict our desires to one particular style or genre. If it's lyrical, we look for it to be strong. If it's founded in emotion, we ask that it be about feeling and not sentimental. If it's quirky and offbeat, we ask that it be challenging. If it's mundane - we don't ask for it at all.
And above all, we ask that what we publish will be something you will feel worth reading.
