In my quest to save the literary arts community, I've discovered two very exciting websites for the Independent Writer. Whether your writing style is lyrical, erotic, political, fictional, biographical or satirical, you'll be sure to find a a strait-jacket and a warm body-bag at the following Indie Publishers: Soft Skull Press and Melville House Publishing
As one who grizzles at the dust jackets of corny, hokum milk-toast emanating from the butt-holes of mainstream publishing; my faith in literary art has been thoroughly revived. After placing my "baby" into the loving arms of Melville House, I finally feel I'm Home. Melville House has a simple credo. they want to see the whole thing and they want more than anything, "to let the work speak for itself". I also like their dark humor and utterly hostile stance toward talentless literary agents, and half-dead, barely alive publishers. So, if you are an illustrator or writer in the throes of finding a publisher; or you possess an artistic style that is not easily encapsulated in a one paragraph synopsis, I urge you to visit their websites. As Naked Ape would say: You'll like what you see and you will be satisfied.
