Launch Point Press (LPP) was established in 2014 with the
goal of publishing quality novels and stories by newer lesbian
authors just "launching" their careers or re-launching
as well. Generally authors reside near enough for us to be
able to sit down one on one and work together. Since LPP is
located in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon, California, and
Washington authors tend to be most heavily represented. We
look forward to our first submission from British Columbia.
We also regularly visit Minnesota, so we have accepted submissions
from authors in those states. While the internet and phone
are fine for conducting business, we like being able to meet
face to face with our authors with a day's drive or less for
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 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 authors' fans and readers.
LPP is served by a variety of excellent indie
editors, including Jane Cuthbertson, Sue Hardesty, Judy Kerr,
Nann Dunne, and Lori L. Lake. Eagle eyes Luca Hart, Judy Kerr,
Carol Poynor, and Linda Vogt often serve as copy editors and
proofreaders. The eye-catching covers, logos, and other art
we use are usually created by LPP, Jove Belle, Ann McMan at
TreeHouse Graphics, or Sheri-the Graphics Gal, unless otherwise
LPP currently has a full schedule for publishing
through Autumn 2019, 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.
