E-books have made self-publishing easy, but everyone needs an editor
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Nancy and David McAllister were revolutionaries when they began offering electronic books through the brand-new WWW in 1994. Now their publishing house, Boson Books, has worldwide distribution through all major e-tailers in all popular e-book formats. They represent nearly 100 authors worldwide, making getting published a reality for writers of quirky, geeky, or unusual mysteries, science fiction, and romance.
Boson has just merged with Bitingduck Press, a Los Angeles-area publisher run by two PhD physicists with a passion for science and the environment. The merged press offers full-service publishing with no author fees, including editing, copyediting, typesetting, and e-formatting. "E-books have made self-publishing easy," says founder Jay Nadeau, "but everyone needs an editor. We offer authors personalized attention and quality editing to make the best e-books possible." The press also does print runs and specializes in electronic formatting of books containing equations and graphics.
The merged catalog offers about 140 active titles for sale and 6 that will become available within the next few weeks to months. The first e-book by the new collaboration is Somebody Wants Somebody Dead (by Phillip Gardner), a collection of suspenseful, darkly humorous short stories now available on Amazon. In June, the press will offer color and black and white versions of The Yoga Facelift(2nd edition), by the founder of organic sunscreen company Marie-Veronique Organics. Also in 2012 are one adult mystery/suspense novel and two young adult paranormal adventures.
Bitingduck Press founders are Jay Nadeau and Chris Lindensmith, both PhDs in physics from the University of Minnesota in 1996. Along with publishing, they offer freelance editorial and copyediting services and scientific consultation to the entertainment industry.
