Today, the Gods Awoke
Launch day is always an exciting one. This one is particularly thrilling. I have a confession: I’ve always wanted to publish Marie Vibbert. I’m not exactly sure when I first became aware of her work. Maybe it was a science fiction story in one of the big magazines, like Single Malt Spacecraft or the heart-rending…
Working with The Big Apple
Journey Press titles are now ALL available through Apple Books!
“By Your Side” is out!
The release of By Your Side: The First 100 Years of Yuri Anime and Manga is more than the exciting launch of a landmark work. It is, quite literally, the culmination of a dream. I’ve known Erica for more than 20 years. We met back when she was at the beginning of her journey to…
Journey Press has three Hugo Nominees!
Journey Press Illustrator is Youngest Hugo Finalist Ever Comic artist Lorelei Esther, illustrator for The Kitra Saga, is the youngest Hugo Finalist in the history of the award. On April 7, 2022, Lorelei was selected for the Fan Artist category for her unpaid works, including her celebratory pictures of DC Comics characters Tim Drake and…
The Path to Publishing, Part 10: Whoops!
Someone once asked me what, as a writer, was my biggest fear. Was it writer’s block? Impostor syndrome? Clichéd composition? I always give the same answer: typos. Few types of business offer as many opportunities to mess up as publishing. After all, in addition to the gross issues of production, distribution, sales, and marketing, there’s…
Spotlight on Dr. Lisa Yaszek
Catalyst for Rediscovery I’ve often said that one of the best things about running a publishing house is the friends I make. From readers to booksellers to fellow authors and publishers, there are now several hundred folks I’ve had the pleasure of associating with these past two years. One of my very favorites has been…
Rediscovery 2 is HERE!
How does one go about making an anthology? Well… With Rediscovery: Science Fiction by Women (1958-1963), which we informally call Rediscovery 1, it was easy. I’d already been running Galactic Journey for the six years that volume would cover. All I had to do was pick out my favorite stories by women (which were often…
Big news for At First Contact!
Happy New Year, everyone! We’ve kept things quiet for a bit so we could all enjoy the holidays. But behind the scenes, things have been rumbling right along. The best news has been that people have loved At First Contact, our latest release. Not one, not two, but three major outlets asked new author Janice…
The Eighth Key wins the Rainbow Award!
When The Eighth Key came out last spring, it made an impact. Not only was it a gripping fantasy yarn, but it was a steamy, slow burn male/male romance. One reviewer praised it for “making consent sexy”. Another found it refreshing that gay angst wasn’t featured, just a great gay couple. Our favorite review gushed…
Interview with two time travelers!
Amazing Stories, started in 1926, is the oldest science fiction publication in existence. So you can bet we were honored when they asked if they could interview two of our authors. You may know that Gideon Marcus and Janice L. Newman, when they aren’t writing novels, maintain the Hugo nominated Galactic Journey — a time…
AT FIRST CONTACT is here!
I’m so excited. My first novel-length work, At First Contact, had been published! It’s been a long time coming, the culmination of more than two years’ work (oh, how the pandemic slowed everything down…). Each tale is its own story, independently created and designed to stand alone. And yet, now that they have been combined…
Where to find Journey Press in November/December!
It was kind of inevitable. Once the worst of the pandemic was over (we’re vaxxed and boosted — go House Pfizer!) we knew we’d be hitting all the local and regional shows. After all, the funnest part of running a press is meeting all of you cool people! Well, that and writing Pinky jokes. We’ve…
This Month at Journey Press (October edition)
All I can say about October is “Wow!” Last year was tough as anything. With the pandemic raging, live shows were out of the question and bookstores were shuttered. Running a press was like one-armed mountain-climbing — it can be done (shout out to Maureen Beck!), but it’s a lot harder. So I guess it…
Now Available: Sirena – Book Two in The Kitra Saga!
It’s been a long road, but Sirena, book two in The Kitra Saga, is here at last! Writing is something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s really something I’ve always been doing. I wrote my first real science fiction story when I was 14 for Freshman English, and I’ve written nonfiction professionally since 2015. But…
It’s Like Ingram WANTS Amazon to Win
For many years, the only way to get a book published was to work with a traditional publisher. Traditional publishers were the only ones who had access to printing at a reasonable cost and distribution at a large enough scale to make selling books worthwhile. Until the internet.
This is why we CAN have nice things!
Let me start with the most important news: Only until the end of this month, the e-book version of Rediscovery: Science Fiction by Women (1958-1963) is on sale for just $2.99. That’s half price, folks. There. You can stop reading. Oooorrr… you can hear me explain why it’s on sale. And also hear some exciting…
An International Endeavor
Books take on lives of their own. They spread like a beneficial virus, through word-of-mouth. Once we figured out how to get books in front of readers, all of a sudden, they were free to run wild. And run they did!
adjective+noun Reviews Rediscovery: Science Fiction by Women
There’s such a diversity of tone among the works in this anthology that I can make no sweeping recommendations as to who might enjoy this work, but I believe anyone who enjoys science fiction will find something to enjoy in Rediscovery: SF by Women.
Sibyl Sue Blue is HERE!
When I was putting together our first collection of classic science fiction, Rediscovery: Science Fiction by Women (1958-1963), one name kept popping up. Rosel George Brown exploded onto the SF scene in the late ‘50s, earning a nomination for the Best New Author Hugo in 1959. It was deserved — Brown combined a savviness for…
A Real Pride Celebration
Happy Pride Month! Join us for a sale on all of Journey Press’ wonderful queer titles. In my last post, I announced that Journey Press openly and proudly identifies as a queer press. LGBTQIA+ isn’t all we do, but it is a big part of who we are and what we publish. I was a…
Journey Press’ Coming Out Party
It’s Pride! Even better, it’s Pride in a (mostly) post-pandemic year! Oh rapture! 🙂 There was no question that I’d be writing about Pride Month, the time for especial celebration of all things queer (LGBTQIA++++) this week. After all, pretty much everyone who works here is some flavor of queer, and we’ve been waiting more…
Parallel Worlds Magazine Reviews KITRA by Gideon Marcus
Let’s kick off Pride Month with a review of Kitra by Hugo Award Finalist Gideon Marcus! Featuring a young, bisexual woman of color, Kitra is a fantastic June reading choice — and Parallel Worlds Magazine is here to tell you all about what makes it so wonderful.
De-Mystifying Gay Romance — You’re selling it WRONG!
Journey Press author and Hugo Award Finalist Laura Weyr joins us today with a message for booksellers everywhere – and perhaps some interesting information for curious readers, as well! Laura walks us through the origins the gay romance genre, explaining why it’s so incredibly popular with modern women today. Why do women flock to gay…
Tor.com Reviews REDISCOVERY: SCIENCE FICTION BY WOMEN
James Davis Nicoll curated a wonderful list of older SF collections to Tor.com – and chose to cap it off with Rediscovery! Nicoll notes the special attention Marcus paid to highlighting lesser-known gems of the silver age, and he compliments the choice to pair them with modern, up-and-coming authors.
