Small Press in trouble
Salt Publishing is an admired independent publisher of poetry and short story collections. Thanks to the credit crunch, they are 80% down in sales. A few days ago, they put out the following request:
“Please buy just one book, right now. We don’t mind from where, you can buy it from us or from Amazon, your local shop or megastore, online or offline. If you buy just one book now, you’ll help to save Salt. Timing is absolutely everything here. We need cash now to stay afloat. If you love literature, help keep it alive. All it takes is just one book sale. Go to our online store and help us keep going.
UK and International
Members of the writers forum I belong to have risen to the challenge. We know that without small presses, the majority of us might never see our work in print, no matter its quality. For the price of “just one book” we can each help ensure that Salt Publishing will continue to publish stories and poems that need to be read. Help keep Salt in business. Buy “just one book” to keep their presses running.
