List of Publishers

One of the things I love of my LiveJournal is my personalized side menu. I don't know if my friends realized that it's interactive, means that I update it everytime I find something new or interesting. And it's quite useful to me also, since for example, I use it for my daily research of books to add to my reading list. Last night during a chat I understood that what for me is quite ordinary, as the list of publishers who accept LGBT title, is not so obvious for all my friends, and so I thought to post my "hunting" grounds ;-)

Wow, this is a tremendous resource, Elisa. Thank you for sharing it! Do you mind if I put a link to this post from the sidebar of my LiveJournal?

One addition: excessica does offer print books of many of their novel-length titles, which are published using CreateSpace and are available on Amazon. There is a "Books in Print" button on the right hand side of the main page, as well as a "Print Books" option on the horizontal menu bar.

Great list! I didn't notice PD Publishing there, though. http://www.pdpublishing.com/

They publish LGBT print books.
elisa_rolle
Mar. 25th, 2009 03:36 pm (UTC)
Yes, you are right. I didn't list them since I never understood when and how often they publish, but it's right to add them to the list. Will do it now. Elisa

This is a fantastic list! Thanks so much for posting it. I believe Loose Id does 4 releases per week, not just 2.

This is brilliant, both from a reader and an author's point of view. Thanks for the fabulous summary, Elisa!

Dreamspinner Press is exclusively m/m, if you wanted to note that.
And Eternal Press are currently in the process of offering all their books - novels and shorts - in print as well, through Amazon.

(and BTW are you coming to Yaoi Con again this year?! I'll be there).
elisa_rolle
Mar. 25th, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the tips Clare, I will add them to the list.

And no, I will not attend Yaoi Con this year, but I'm thinking on what I will do the year after. I would like to join again travel and convention, but not again at SF; have you a suggestion on a convention held in a nice place? and maybe in summer?

*Waves shyly*

Wow, this is a fantastic resource. As an aspiring pro writer (and a reader!), this is really helpful -- I have discovered about two thirds of these publishers, but not the rest.

The other things you do on here are also wonderful.:)

Thank you for stopping by and for the kind word. You are welcome to "use" the list ;-) and to add something if you see missed. Elisa

The who link me is quite ego from my side. I updated it with the google alert, and they are mostly blog (means posts), but I will be more than happy to add you! The other are not exactly "links" but more spread of mouth. Elisa

Actually Shadowfire Press also publishes heterosexual erotic romance fiction, we just don't have a large number of them yet.

Thank you! Will update its line. Elisa

Oh, also Mojocastle does print through Under the Moon. These books are offset printed, not POD. The first four of my Through Neon Eyes m/m cyberpunk books are out in a print edition. Their publication schedule is, however, incredibly erratic with no new releases since November 2008.

Thank you again, I will update also that one ;-) Elisa

Believe me, E - you've cost me more money than I can count with your easy navigation. Sometimes I just go through all of the presses and find all kinds of new stuff. Thanks again for all the work you put into your LJ - you're a very special person to do all all this - even though it costs me!

Thanks Elisa. What a wonderful resource. I have linked it in The Manhole in the Phade. Love the expanded version, with the descriptions of what each published.

Just a heads up Forbidden Publications closed it's doors on March 30th of this year. :(
elisa_rolle
Apr. 22nd, 2009 07:11 am (UTC)
Ahah I have that feeling, last time I hinted it an author told me no, it wasn't true... but it was months that it didn't release anything. Elisa

Apr. 22nd, 2009 07:17 am (UTC)
When I posted the links in The Manhole In The Phade I tried to link to the M/M Catalouge page. So I saw their notice. Sad that it happens but it does.

Also Forbidden Passion Press only shows two books coming soon but no links to current books on catalouge. I don't know if that is a site error or if they are just new and don't have any books for sale yet. The cover of the M/M one looked scrumptous.
elisa_rolle
Apr. 22nd, 2009 07:24 am (UTC)
Forbidden Passion Press is the newest entry in the list. It's open to submission and it has a LGBT line, so I added it to the list. Also I'm curious to know what it will release. Elisa
mountie123
Apr. 22nd, 2009 07:32 am (UTC)
I'll be watching for a release date and an exerpt. Thanks for letting me know it is new.

A fabulous list!! I have another suggestion for you. Reluctant Press at http://reluctantpress.com/ is a publisher of illustrated transgender, transsexual, transvestite and cross-dress fiction.

It's rare to have a publisher that focuses only on the T in GLBT so thought you might like to add it to your list.

Em :-)
elisa_rolle
May. 5th, 2009 07:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you Em, I will add it right away. Elisa

Hi Elisa,

I just wanted to let you know that, in doing a little research yesterday utilizing your wonderful list of publishers, I noticed http://www.forbiddenpassionpress.com/ has closed up shop before ever opening. If you check their splash page, you'll see the announcement.

Thank you Jaye for the update. I'm not surprise, I visited them months ago week after week to see what was happening, they had some nice covers I was interested to see the book behind, but got tired to wait. I will update the list.
