Can’t start the new year without pausing to thank everyone who helped us along our path to make Bacon Press Books bigger and better.
Thanks first to our authors: JP Bloch, Ellis Chase, Joseph Jablonski (Darlyn and Peter Jablonski), Judith Podell, Al Sprague, Frank Tavares, and Danny Wynn. Every time we do a book we learn more about writing and about reading.
Thank you to all those who have helped produce and promote our books: Lorraine Fico-White, Magnifico Manuscripts; Al Pranke, Amp13; Lorie DeWorken, Mind the Margins; John Low, Ebook Launch; Paul Krupin, Direct Contact PR; David Johnson, Strategic Vision.
And to the people who promoted our books in ways we never could. Margaret, Tabitha, & Delene,Book Partners In Crime Promotions; Dorothy Thompson, Pump Up Your Book; Kate Tilton, Kate Tilton’s Author Services; James Fraser, Book Review Broker.
Half a dozen people at Fiverr, but especially booksbykatina.
Busy people who took the time to give us good advice: Angela Bole, IBPA; Mark Coker, Smashwords; Joel Hochman, Arbor Books; Brian Feinblum, MediaConnect.
Thanks to a few of the people we’ve worked with: Mark Dresdner, BabelCube, Amanda Barbara, Pubslush, and Rosy, Books on the Subway.
Thanks to Canva and Animoto for letting us pretend we have artistic talent.
Thanks to people we read regularly who have never heard of us: Joel Friedlander, Jane Friedman; Penny Sansaveri; Aaron Shepherd, Kevan Lee, John Kremer, Jim Kukral, Shawn and RJ, Randy Ingermanson, Shelley Hitz and Heather Hart, Jon Morrow, Orna Ross, and there are probably two dozen more we can't remember at the moment. (sorry about the lack of links, but there's only so much time.)
To our friends and family who have let us dither on way too much about publishing.
Many thanks to anyone who’s bought, borrowed or downloaded one of our books; to those who have taken the time to leave reviews and ratings; and to anyone who’s actually reading this blog - it still feels like we’re writing in a vacuum.
For the new year, our website has a new look. Thanks to our favorite web designer, Carly Rosenberg, we heard about SquareSpace and thought we’d give it a try. Check it out and let us know what you think.
We’re also starting the year with a great new book, Landfall by Joseph Jablonski. Hope you’ll pick up a copy.
Happy New Year!
