Looking Into Small Press

One of the hardest things about publishing is that there is a sea of information out there, and it is very easy to feel like I’m drowning rather than swimming. So I’m crowdsourcing…

Tell me, what are your favorite small press publishers with a YA imprint? I’m looking for places interested in urban fantasy or magical realism, and LGTBQ characters. I’m also hoping to find a small press that works with the author on publicity, and if at all possible, one that might get books into libraries (or at the least, ebooks into elibraries!).

I find myself staring at this wall of information and waiting for it to crash down on me.

While I pursue this for one book, I can tell you that I have another project in the works going out by another method. There will be more on that soon, I hope! I’m trying to work out the details and figure out the best way to do it.

About D. E. Atwood

When D.E. Atwood was in second grade, she finally grew tall enough to see the shelf above the mysteries in the bookmobile. She discovered a rich landscape of alternate worlds, magic, and space and has never looked back from the genres of fantasy and science fiction. When she was twelve, she declared that she was going to be a writer, and share the stories that she saw happening all around her. She wanted to create characters that others would care about, and that would touch their lives, like the books that she read had touched her own life. Today she has combined her interests, creating genre stories about the people who live next door, bringing magic into the world around us. When not writing, D.E. Atwood is a mother (to two children and a cat), a wife, a reader, a knitter, a systems administrator, a roleplayer, and a music aficionado. Sleep, she claims, is optional.

    Entangled Teen seems pretty respectable to me. A lot of their books get as much buzz on the internet as bigger publishers. And I just got one of their books (My Sweet Sixteen Century) out of my local library. Based on their titles list, they have lots of love for contemporary titles and romance, which I’ve heard is harder to place with some of the bigger publishers, currently.

      I’ve liked some things from Entangled, definitely. I have also heard good things about Month9Books and Strange Chemistry (which I’m hoping will have another Open Door this year). Publishing has become so HUGE.
