This week on Hide and Create, Joshua Essoe, Michael Sullivan, Debbie Viguie, and Jordan Ellinger talk about publishing with small presses.
A small press can be the stepping-stone to your big, bad career, and unlike in self-publishing, your work is endorsed by a gatekeeper who believes in you and your work. And that counts for a lot in the minds of many readers.
When signing on with a small press, though, ask questions. Don’t hesitate to ask lots of questions, like what the expected print run would be, for example, before signing a contract—especially if you’re doing so without agent representation.
