Author Q&A on GoodReads

We are launching an Author Question and Answer series on our new group at GoodReads. This week, we kick off with Dorothee Lang and Smitha Murthy, authors of WOR[L]DS APART.

What’s New at Folded Word

At Folded Word we’ve been so busy lately we forgot to share the great new works we have out, as well as others quickly approaching the shelves.

As Folded Word has grown, its submissions queue has also grown. In fact it has grown to a point that we need more readers than our free Submittable (Submishmash) account will allow. This has led to the difficult decision to charge a reading fee beginning 1 June 2012 (at 12:01 a.m. Pacific for those thinking of sneaking in one last free submission).

Taking it One Step Further

If you’ve been keeping up with Folded Word, you might have noticed a few changes that have been underway over the past few months. Our first novel has launched, we’ve brought on an Art Director, and we expanded our chapbook line to include a Green Edition–just to name a few. Today we are announcing yet another change.

Just Launched: FREIGHT

At long last, the wait is over. FREIGHT is HERE! And to celebrate, we’ll be posting our favorite quotes from the book throughout the day on Twitter.
