GOODBYE TO A FELLOW PRESS

Were you a member of the FB group and publisher Sweety Cat Press (SCP)? This wonderful group was doing its level-best to promote authors and get publishing out there, and it is folding because it is soooo difficult (absent a college to pay your way) to keep a small press going.
Here @ DPP we have three imprints (Sci Fi, Horror, and Mystery/Detective) in addition to our straight-up literary arm (DPP) and, premiering later this month, our new online magazine (Instant Noodles). We pay a royalty for anthology pieces we accept for the printed books; we don’t charge authors of full-length works for editing or promotion or submission fees for contests, and we pay them royalties 2x/year. We work really hard at getting writers out there. And our submission pile is growing rapidly. Subscribe to our newsletter so you get updates on opportunities to publish.
And consider buying a book.
I can well-understand that SLC @ SCP can no longer do this. It is amazing he did it so long. So do, please consider buying a book from a small press for that next Xmas or birthday gift, or to read yourself:

****even if you are not in it.****

It is the only way small presses survive to bring you more publication opportunities. We are not making a living at this. It is a mission, and we cannot do it without the occasional purchase that is simply because you want to read, or give as a gift, good writing.

We are so sorry to lose SCP and that great community, but so lucky to have been a small part of it.

Consider signing up for our newsletter, so that we can keep you in the loop on publishing opportunities, our free lit mag, and great books to read.
