LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2006
Angela Hunt, Mompreneur, author and artist, has just opened a new small genre press in Los Angeles, specializing in science fiction and fantasy that promotes a better world and a better tomorrow in conjunction with Lulu (http://www.lulu.com), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.
Hunt Press is a small press devoted to publishing stories that give hope to readers in a field dominated by dystopic science fiction and too much high fantasy that reads like retreads of Lord of the Rings. Noting the success of websites such as HappyNews.com and Cute Overload, Mrs. Hunt feels that the time is more than ripe for a genre infusion of work that says humanity has a chance in this or any world.
Angela Hunt founded Hunt Press (http://www.huntpress.com) to help herself, other moms, and other independently published authors get noticed by the media and science fiction/fantasy fandom. She came to Lulu because she wanted to be in control of the publishing process and found Lulu’s print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy and, most importantly, free. Hunt Press already has two titles available, The Wishing Coin by Angela Hunt, a collection of short stories, poems and songs and The Messy Divorce of Faith & Belief by Matthew Hunt which includes his award-winning story, The Maid, which was one of five winners of the Stephen King “On Writing” short story contest. Both are available for purchase at http://www.lulu.com and http://www.amazon.com.
“Independent, niche publishing, print-on-demand that targets a niche market is the wave of the future, and the future is now,” said Angela Hunt. “The Lulu process allows me to cut out the middle man (i.e. a separate publisher) and control my own destiny.”
Angela Hunt, publisher and owner of Hunt Press, is a Momtrepeneur, , award-winning writer and photographer, painter and all around artist. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Comparative Religions, Wicca, from Our Lady of Enchantment School and Seminary. This is her first small press venture.
Founded in 2002, Lulu is the world’s fastest-growing print-on-demand marketplace for digital do-it-yourselfers. Please see http://www.lulu.com for more information.
