We believe the future looks good for book publishing, for Creative
Arts, and for our authors. The Internet, websites, next-day book
printing, and various other kinds of electronic selling and publishing
will only give us greater visibility to our readers and potential
authors, and more choices to those of us in the business of the
distribution of ideas, words, and pictures.
So, browse through our future, new, and backlist titles for a feast
of first-time novelists and short-fiction writers, America’s best
poets, mystery/suspense, memoir, biography, and hundreds of
books still in print after all these years.
