Another indie press going out of business, sadly.

  • Publishing Experience:Journalist covering U.S. nonprofits, foundations, and life in general. President and Chief Elephant Officer of Elephant's Bookshelf Press, LLC. Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published ten books, including short stories by several AQC writers and debut novels by AQC authors A.T. O'Connor (aka Cat Woods), "ScubaSteve" Carman, and R.S. Mellette. Heading into 2016, we're aiming to publish at least two books, including the second Mellette novel and an anthology. In 2015, I saw a few memoir/nonfiction pieces published in Red Fez. I expect to do more of that in 2016 and beyond, while also looking to add freelance editing and writing clients.

Some beautiful covers. That's too bad, but I certainly understand.

They "closed" but then were bought out last minute. It's pretty crazy:

Hmmm... Okay.

 

Not a place I would sub to, esp. not now.  I'd have to see who bought them and what the new admin. is like, then wait a year or so to make sure they don't fold again, before I'd take that risk.
