Once more, with feeling

Got the first proof of the Erekos ARC yesterday and it looks pretty good. There were still a few issues, though, mostly relating to the baseline grid, the gutters, and the outer margins. So…I reset the type. Again. That makes six times now, I think. Hope this one’s the charm, because we’re so close to […]

Font Geekery

I’ve been spending the better part of the last two weeks revising Erekos for its print release in September, and dealing with the vagaries of what font, leading, and kerning to use for a trade paperback edition. It’s fun, but also frustrating. So in the midst of all my font work there, it was a […]

We’re absolutely blown away to have gotten a “Best Of” recognition in our very first year, with our very first title. That’s right, Cold Iron & Rowan Wood, a book blog you should really be reading, decided that Erekos is the best book put out by a small publisher that’s crossed their path this year. […]

Gift-Giving Problems Solved

We love digital books. Love ’em. They’re convenient – they go everywhere with you, and bookmark your pages for you, and you can keep thousands in a teeny little space! They’re usually pretty cheap, and if you’re buying from somewhere like Candlemark & Gleam, well, they’re pretty darn nicely laid out, if we say so […]
