May 2023

We hate to brag, but we’re just going to kick off our May newsletter by saying that two (two!) of our newest novels have been listed as Small Press Distribution’s bestsellers! Anangokaa by Cameron Alam, and The Marriage: The Mahlers in the New York by Joseph Horowitz. Please enjoy the latest review of Anangokaa here, and Joseph Horowitz’s blog post about his time at the Colorado Mahler Festival here, as well as a review in the NY Sun here.

By the time this newsletter reaches you, we’ll have published two more books: A People Without Shame by Patrick Colm Hogan, and The Flounder by John Fulton. Both books have several events coming up. A People Without Shame will be introduced to the world at Pearl Street Books in La Crosse tomorrow  (Tuesday, 30th May). Patrick will then be coming over to the UK for an event in late July, with more details coming soon.

The Flounder will be launched at Brookline Booksmith , where John shall be in conversation with Daphne Kalotay. He will then have a UK event on the 12th June at Curler’s Rest, Byres Road, Glasgow. Our authors are going international!

And our next book after that, publishing in early June, is Mission to Madagascar: The Sergeant, the King, and the Slave Trade, by David H. Mould. Based on the diaries of James Hastie, this is an account of his mission to Madagascar at the beginning of the nineteenth century to negotiate an end to the slave trade. Read more in this blog piece, and for those in London, remember to sign up for the event at KCL on 29th June. And remember: subscribers get a discount on pre-orders.

Finally, if you’re attending WV Writers at Cedar Lakes on June 10, don’t miss the opportunity to hear Elizabeth discuss how best to approach a publisher, and what we look for (or not) in a covering email.
