About Launch Point Press

"Accessible, Affordable, and Appealing Publications"

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.


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!

LPP is 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!
