How to Launch Your Own Independent Press

A peek behind the scenes—and a starting point to join the publishing revolution.

It was a great delight and honor to give a talk at the 2021 Japan Writers Conference on “How to Launch Your Own Independent Press.” I really enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on what I’ve learned over the past two years and condense it for an audience eager to try it out for themselves. How little I realized, before I founded Thornbush Press, what an entrepreneur lay dormant within me!

But I’m not an entrepreneur aiming to take out the competition. Quite the contrary, the whole point of this talk was to invite anyone and everyone to join in the fun. if you’re curious about creating a press of your own, or just wonder how it can be done at all, have a listen to this recording of my talk.
