Chapbook Production Suspended as of 2015

To all client-authors, past, present and future:

After 17 years of chapbook production, I've decided to permanently close down the operation.

This has always been a labor intensive operation, as well as a labor of love. The entire process from initial layout through shipping takes more time than I can spare as I move into semi-retirement. Please read or download the do-it-yourself chapbook production sheet to see what is involved. I can prepare camera-ready chapbook files, but will no longer physically produce and ship the books.

I will be pleased to help any writer publish a perfect-bound book, however, since this does not involve physical book production on my part. I design and format these books and prepare camera-ready files to transmit to the print shop or print-on-demand companies. Read more.

Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone or any company producing chapbooks that I can personally recommend. If anyone has a good experience elsewhere, I'd appreciate being told about it. Write to jo@wordrunner.com.

Many thanks to all the writers who over the last 17 years have entrusted me with their “precious cargo.” It has been a wonderful experience. I will continue supporting you as best I can. And to those who pass this way and must move on, the best of luck. Keep on writing, all of you!
