Barney Rosset Author- MY LIFE IN PUBLISHING HOW I FOUGHT CENSORSHIP

VIVID AND INFORMATIVE
… a must for anyone
interested in 20th-century American publishing and culture.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This “candid self-portrait” (Publishers Weekly) of “the one-in-a-million Barney Rosset, America’s bravest publisher” (Paul Auster) tells “a colorful and rollicking history” (Publishers Weekly) of the one person of whom it could be said he “represents the literary world of the latter half of the 20th century” (Kenzaburō Ōe).

NOW SHIPPING: ONLY DIRECT FROM OR BOOKS. NOT AVAILABLE ON AMAZON OR IN STORES UNTIL JANUARY.

Loose Leaves Publishing Partnership- A Royalty-paying International Publisher

Loose Leaves Publishing Partnership- A Royalty-paying International Publisher

Tucson, AZ Atlanta, GA Spartanburg, SC

Loose Leaves is a royalty-paying international publisher. We do not pay advances, but neither do we charge fees for set up, editing, printing, and distribution.

Please query us only about completed books and send us your best work. You should be proud of your manuscript and confident that it is free of errors before we see it.

We are seeking submissions of historical (especially medieval), literary, and fantasy fiction, including magical realism as well as biographical and creative non-fiction. In addition we accept nautical and U.S. historical, women’s fiction, thrillers, chick lit and YA.

We do not at this time consider books that are only romance without a historical or literary context or that are principally horror or with gratuitous sex or violence.

Mabel Leo Author- Nine Published Books Now Available on Kindle

Mabel Leo Author- Nine Published Books Now Available on Kindle

Mabel Leo’s nine published books are no available on Kindle. She found the process easier than she expected, just time consuming. One great feature of Kindle is seeing a preview of the finished work before it’s actually published. And after it’s published, it’s still easy to make necessary changes. Now she’s ready to tackle doing the same for Barnes & Noble’s Nook. So don’t hesitate- this is a great way to let the world see your talent!
