Celebrating 1000 Tweeps

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.

New Titles New Blogs

It’s been a crazy April around here. Not only were we hatching a Heron and proofing FREIGHT, we typeset two chapbooks and edited our first travel narrative. And yet our queue of titles waiting to be produced is STILL staggeringly long. So in an effort to streamline updates from our globally-diverse crew, we’ve created two new blogs instead of building vast quantities of webpages.

Freight: What are You Carrying?

This past week, Kurt and J.S. Graustein met with Mel Bosworth to discuss production of Mel’s upcoming novel, Freight. After the meeting, a thought burst into the Fold. We at Folded Word began to wonder if you, our readers and contributors, have any freight of your own.

Meeting in Boston

The past week, J. S. Graustein, our managing editor here at Folded Word, has been on an adventure. Not the kind of adventure you take when you want to fight dragons or save princesses, but a learning adventure. In Boston, Graustein is attending a “How to be a Publisher” class

Whirlwind Summary

So much is happening these days at Folded Word that I can only think in bullets.
