Launch Point Press (LPP) was established in 2014 with the
goal of publishing quality novels and stories by newer lesbian
authors, particularly those 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 authors
tend to be most heavily represented. We're not averse to submissions
by writers in British Columbia. We also regularly visit Minnesota
and California, 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 only about a day's drive for both parties.
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, 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 Jove Belle, Ann McMan at TreeHouse Graphics, or
Sheri, the Graphics Gal, unless otherwise noted.
LPP currently has a full schedule for publishing
through mid-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.
