Launch Point Press (LPP) was established in 2014 with the
goal of publishing quality novels and stories by lesbian authors,
particularly authors residing near enough for us to be able
to sit down one on one and work together. Since we live in
the Pacific Northwest, Oregon and Washington tend to be most
heavily represented. We also regularly visit Florida, Minnesota,
and California, so we have accepted submissions from authors
in those states.
LPP is a regular small press that pays all
costs of publication, and we issue regular royalties to authors
based upon sales. We want to ensure that each author understands
the entire publication process and has choices and input so
that everything about the book is of high quality. LPP strives
to be accessible, to create appealing books, and to keep our
books affordable for our author's fans and readers.
LPP is served by a variety of excellent indie
editors, including Nann Dunne, Judy Kerr, Pat Cronin, Luca
Hart, Lori L. Lake, and Jessie Chandler. Eagle eyes Carol
Poynor and Linda Vogt often serve as proofreaders. The eye-catching
covers, logos, and other art we use are usually created by
Ann McMan at TreeHouse Graphics, Sandy Knowles, or Sheri,
the Graphics Gal, unless otherwise noted.
LPP currently has a full schedule for publishing
through 2018, but we will take on print and ebook projects
from aspiring writers once again in the future. Keep a close
eye on the Submissions Page to find out when that happens.
