Launch Point Press (LPP) is a lesbian-oriented press with
the goal of publishing quality works by newer authors just
"launching" their careers or by experienced authors
"re-launching" their work.
As a traditional small press that pays all
costs of publication, LPP issues regular royalties to authors
based upon sales. We want to ensure that each author understands
the publication process and has choices and input so everything
about the book is of the highest quality. LPP strives to be
accessible, to create appealing books, and to keep our books
affordable for our authors' fans and readers.
LPP is served by a variety of excellent indie
editors, including Jane Cuthbertson, Kay Grey, Sue Hardesty,
Judy Kerr, and Lori L. Lake. Eagle eyes Claudia Kuzie, Carol
Poynor, and Linda Vogt have often served as copy editors and
proofreaders. The eye-catching covers, logos, and other art
we use are created by LPP, Jove Belle, Lorelei, or Sheri at
Hindsight Graphics, unless otherwise noted.
LPP currently has a full schedule for publishing
through mid-2021, but we will take on print and ebook projects
from aspiring writers once more in the future. Keep a close
eye on the Submissions Page to find out when that happens.
DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION
Diverse, multi-racial, multi-age, and differently-able
writers deserve unbiased treatment and inclusion in our society
and in all of the fine arts. Launch Point Press welcomes submissions
of lesbian-oriented books from writers of every color, ability,
age, background, and more. Books featuring characters who
are "diverse" (which reflects the Real World) are
always welcome. We believe that all good writing by, for,
and/or about lesbians is very much needed in the world today.
Changing the World
One Book at a Time!
happy to report that Flashpoint Publications is now
our official "sister" press. This means
that we collaborate, cooperate, and assist one another
in this crazy world of independent small press publishing.
Run by veteran industry insider, Patty Schramm, Flashpoint
expanded to include several dozen new authors from
the 2021 purchase of RCE press. LPP and FP will be
a tremendous resource for one another as sister presses!
