Founded by Jennifer M. Volland and Wendy Thomas Russell, writers and entrepreneurs, BPP seeks to fill the gap between traditional and indie publishing by developing and producing well-designed, well-written and well-marketed books.
Small presses long have been an indispensable part of the publishing industry — more open to risk-taking and less tied to commercial success than large publishing houses. They are credited with bringing some of the world’s most provocative and thoughtful writing to the printed page. In addition, small presses are known for developing close, supportive and enduring relationships with their authors and their communities; launching book promotion plans that last months, even years, longer than that of traditional publishers; rewarding authors with generous royalties; and involving authors in the behind-the-scenes decisions, such as marketing strategies and design.
In short, what small presses lack in name recognition, they more than make up for in passion, creativity and flexibility. We are thrilled to be a part of such a worthy tradition.
