We’ve got a ton of great news to share, dear readers, so sit back and we’ll get right to it.
Earlier this year, we announced that AP is officially a non-profit organization (we even bought aforementioned.org to celebrate). With that announcement, we mentioned that we hoped to have a bigger announcement about our next project: releasing full-length books. We spent a good portion of the summer waiting for/fretting over the news that would allow us to start that next project.
So, finally, here it is:
We have nationwide distribution!
Our books will be distributed through SPD, which means our titles will be available in bookstores across the country. And, speaking of titles, that brings me to the most exciting piece of news: our forthcoming catalog.
In 2014, we will publish three books. In late January, we’ll bring you the fourth print annual of apt, and in summer and fall, respectively, two full-length debuts: Dolan Morgan‘s short story collection, That’s When the Knives Come Down and Liam Day‘s poetry collection, Afforded Permanence.
You may recognize Dolan’s and Liam’s names from their work in apt (they were both in our first print annual and they’ve since had work online with us as well). We’re immensely proud to have them help us usher in AP’s next endeavor. To celebrate, we’ve designed a slick new colophon that will dress up all our future books (see right).
So keep your eyes on this spot in the coming months for updates about our 2014 catalog, and if you’re a bookseller, librarian, or reviewer interested in getting an advance copy of any of our forthcoming books, you can contact us directly at info AT aforementionedproductions DOT com
