A Note to Authors from Conner, Publisher of Winter texts
All books by Winter texts are a collaboration–every book requires a different series of insights and gestures and solutions in order to get it from idea to manuscript to object (and into the minds of others).
I create with others based on a principle of sincerity: Writers maintain all rights to their written words (meaning you can republish at your own discretion) and all financial agreements are done upfront, communally, and with good faith to not try and profit off of another’s effort.
All this slows things down considerably. Books sometimes reach stores. They don’t get sold on Amazon. I’ve more or less shirked ISBNs. Advertising is not a priority. Nor is notoriety. Every book has a different readership, and how folks will find and sink into the pages, how the text looks and feels and interfaces with our worlds.
Books are sacred. So we attempt to make a sacred thing and come out with something rather meaningful. If I (and Winter texts) cannot give your book the focus needed to create something potentially sacred, I will let you know candidly and we both will leave the project with more than we started with.
