October Launch and Recent Press

Promo card fixed

***Note: The time has been moved forward 1 hour–the reading will begin at 7pm sharp.***

The details have been sorted for our Fall launch, and we couldn’t be more excited. Rhonda, Spencer, and jesslyn will be reading from their new chapbooks on Friday October 18 at 7pm at the always-wonderful Raw Sugar Cafe. We hope that you can make it out to celebrate with us! Full details are available in the image above, and there is a Facebook event here if you’re inclined to RSVP for these things.

Jeff Blackman’s Apt. 9 chapbooks So Long As The People are People has been receiving some good press recently. JM Francheteau wrote this thoughtful, positive review over at his blog. Jeff also had the opportunity to answer 12 or 20 questions at rob mclennan’s blog. Thanks to JM and rob! We’re always looking for venues to send review copies to. Let us know if you’re interested in any of our available titles!

In other exciting news, Apt. 9 author Christine McNair was shortlisted for the 2013 Archibald Lampman Award for her debut trade book, Conflict, published by Bookthug. She’s got our vote! Congratulations, Christine, and congratulations to the other finalists!

See you at the Ottawa small press book fair on October 12. That’ll be your first chance to pick up our new titles. Each will be available for purchase on the website following the official launch on October 18.
