#ReadingResolutions #QuickRead ⏳A quick read in terms of page count, but the writing is beautiful enough that it made me want to slow down and savor it. About a Vietnam veteran finding his way home through guilt, PSTD & poor choices, the author captures the beauty of the Rio Grande in New Mexico. (And it's from an #indiepress so I like to give it a little love and recognition when I can.)💜

Every Boy Should Have a Man | Preston L. Allen
post image

“In a post-human world, a boy oaf comes home from school and finds a female man wrapped up in red ribbon. A note around her neck reads: ‘Every boy should have a man. You‘re a fine son. Love, Dad.‘ The novel takes on many of today‘s issues including poverty, the environment, sexism, racism, war, and religion, all in lighthearted King James prose.”🙋🏾

I picked this up from the library display solely for the cover. I used to have a Time Life book about fairies when I was a kid, and I think it featured Goblin Market by Arthur Rackham too. It looks like a good pick for #screamathon. #libraryhaul #indiepress

For #indiepress I'd be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to these wonderful publishers with whom I've been fortunate enough to work with!!

What are you reading for this #LitsyReadingChallenge category? What makes a press an indie press? #indiepress

And how does it differ from a #micropress for #ReadHarder for Book Riot

vivastory A micro press is basically run by only a handful of people. Independent presses don't have quite as much to spend on ads etc but several are distributed nationally. A press like graywolf & coffee house are Indies 2y
BookishJess I'm reading the tagged book for indie publisher. Not sure what would qualify for the micro press category though. 2y
Brie Book riot has an article about micro presses and suggestions, I would search online for that. I second @vivastory about graywolf for indies and would also add Melville House. 2y

Sweettartlaura Swimming Lessons - in the US it was released by Tin House Press, a small outfit in OR/NYC. You can check their website for other releases if you like 🙂 2y
ReadingEnvy Half the international books I read qualify. If you read poetry it's likely to be a micro press too! 2y

Pickpick

(same title as tagged but different book) A truly brilliant collection of short essays by a remarkable cross-section of women. The range of topics is too broad and diverse to list but every single one had something vital to say about the lives of women today. Crowd-funded by #indiepress 404 Ink these are our feminist voices for the Brexit/Trump era #nastywomen
