WELCOME TO MORAN PRESS
I want to welcome all the new visitors and returning loyal readers to the website. Running a small publishing business is a very difficult endeavor and I sincerely appreciate all that take time from their busy lives to visit the website and support the work being published. There are an incredible amount of entertainment options for consumers today and I'm humbled at those choosing Moran Press.
I'd like to tell you a little about Moran Press, my goals, and the future of micro press publishing.
Moran Press seeks to publish cutting edge fiction, poetry, and essays and pair the works with custom art to create what I've called 'Arthouse Paperbacks', truly one-of-a-kind books in the publishing industry. I spend many hours crafting the paperbacks to be as readable as I can possibly make each one. My ultimate goal is to create literary treasures readers will be proud to display in their home collections.
Many ask about how I select the manuscripts for publication.
I seek unique voices and what I feel are must reads. I want to publish books that leave an imprint and make an impact on readers, force introspection and challenge a reader's core beliefs. Ultimately, I want to create work that readers come back to time and again, continuing to find nuggets and choice bits missed on prior reads. I've always loved books that take time to digest and ponder and want to continue that literary tradition.
For the future, I have some ambitious goals. I'd like to streamline the publication process to the extent that I can print 'books on demand' - allowing readers to select a grouping of their favorite stories and poetry that I will print in a custom book. I'm also looking to add more features to e-books beyond simply a digital representation of the printed work. There's a lot of possibility in that new area and I want to explore adding new content to Moran Press e-books.
I also will begin publishing hardcover editions of the Arthouse Paperbacks. Many readers have requested this and I will make that happen. Look for letterpress printed hardcover books in 2019.
Again, I'd like to thank all those that take time to visit MoranPress.com.
To the readers - always feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions, both on the books being published and also on what you'd like to see published in the future.
To the authors considering Moran Press - join a micro press that will help create a work of art from your manuscript. I go the extra mile, both in cover design and interior formatting to publish a book of uncompromising quality and something you don't get almost anywhere else in the indie publishing community. Email me at MoranPressGroup@gmail.com and we can discuss what it means to join Moran Press.
I'll be posting news of upcoming releases later today. Stay tuned for an exciting slate of new fiction and poetry.
Thanks once again for supporting my small business. I couldn't do it without you.
