The world of independent publishers is filled with mystery, intrigue, dedication, and hard work. After all, those wonderful books don’t just publish themselves–haha. As an independent publisher ourselves, we thought it would be interesting to find out the story behind some of our colleagues, and to let our readers know about the breadth and variety of work now being published by folks unassociated with the “Big Five.” One key common denominator: Independent publishers are definitely putting out some of the most diverse, interesting work that is changing the conversation about what makes a good read. Check out our list frequently as we continue to add to the mix. And if you have a suggestion for an indie publisher we should interview, please email us at email@example.com so we can expand our list even more.
