Well, next month Meritage Press will cease its distribution arrangement with Small Press Distribution (SPD). Both parties are still amicable with each other—the move simply reflects how most poetry titles sell during the aftermath of their release and I hadn’t listed a new title with SPD since 2008 as the press shifted to POD options. So my backlist no longer make sense to be at SPD. What this means is a temporary $3-per-book sale of the following titles (pay viz Paypal) just to help adjust my inventory storage issues. Good through end of the month or Sept. 30, you can acquire these books at a bargain price:
100 MORE JOKES FROM THE BOOK OF THE DEAD by John Yau and Archie Rand (excellent essay on collaborations by John Yau)
PRAU by Jean Vengua
COMPLICATIONS by Garrett Caples
DERIVE by Bruna Mori
OPERA: POEMS 1982-2002 by Barry Schwabsky
[WAYS] by Barry Schwabsky and Hong Seung-Hye
DISAPPOINTED PSALMS by Brian Clements
THE OBEDIENT DOOR by Sean Tumoana Finney
That’s a real bargain—the $3 obviously is just going for postage. After this INVENTORY ADJUSTMENT SALE, books revert back to usual prices and are available direct from Meritage Press or at Amazon.
And, actually, looking at the above list reminds me of how many fabulous titles I’ve been honored to publish. Notwithstanding the lapse of our arrangement with SPD, Meritage Press remains in business. Go HERE to see our fabulous catalog!
Payment will only be taken through Paypal (include your address). Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for placing orders.
