I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

Cover Photo Needed for Lion on the Hearth, by John Ehle

I'm in the process of reissuing John Ehle's 1961 novel Lion on the Hearth. I'd like to find a cover photo or painting of Lexington Avenue in Asheville from the 1920s. If anyone has some images I could consider, I would appreciate it. Send me a note at kevin@press53.com.

Small Press challenges

Tomorrow, April 8, I will deliver a talk to a local leadership group on the challenges of running a small press. While there are numerous challenges, my main focus will be on finding readers who love the kind of writing I love. When I founded Press 53 in October of 2005, I made a decision to not follow the markets by publishing the current trends; rather, I decided to publish the kind of writing I love and set out to find readers who agree with me. This way I would never have to edit, re-edit,…See More

Kevin,

I was the author of Prospecting for Old Furniture, written before my having knowledge of self-promotion. It was written from several perspectives, including my company's work in restoring antique furniture. An editor of Mid-West reviews said it was "masterful in its care and worthy of the highest praise." Its title needs to be The Practical Book of Buying Antique Furniture. I am following it with another which balances Antiques, New-tiques, and Fun-tiques, and I have other books well developed, which are humorous.

Hope you have a great day!
