Press Release: Yet To Be Named Free Press

Founding Editor: Brendan Slater, brendan@yettobenamedfreepress.org
Anthology Editor: Alan Summers, alan@yettobenamedfreepress.org Brendan Slater, Yet To Be Named Free Press
Submissions: subs@yettobeneamedfreepress.org


YTBNFP is an indie publisher utilising POD to get fresh, exciting, experimental, quality short-verse out into the market place without all the overheads of a traditional publishing business, in fact we are not a business we are a co-operative and non-profit making, our authors, editors and artists get equal shares of any profits, we also plan to set up a trust fund for poets who are hard up and cannot afford books or their gas bills, etc. This will take some time setting up as short-verse is a niche market, we don't expect to get rich from this, if we wanted that we'd be publishing 50 shades of my Vicar's wife's knickers, or something less tasteful.

Our first title released in August is Four Virtual Haiku Poets (http://www.yettobenamedfreepress.org/p/four-virtual-haiku-poets.html), an anthology of the work of Scott Terrill, Brendan Slater, Colin Stewart Jones and Michael Goglia, edited by Alan Summers and Brendan Slater. It's available through Amazon at $7.50, £5.00 and €6.00.

Our second title also released in August is In Bed With Kerouac (http://www.yettobenamedfreepress.org/p/in-bed-with-kerouac.html), a mixed genre book by Brendan Slater, available through Amazon at $7.50, £5.00 and €6.00.

Our third title has just been released, Does Fish-God Know, a collection of gendai haiku by Alan Summers. More information to come in a separate press release @ http://www.yettobenamedfreepress.org/p/does-fish-god-know.html

We are also accepting submission for an anthology called c.2.2. Where only pen names will be published. Please visit this address for guidelines: http://www.yettobenamedfreepress.org/p/call-for-subs-anthology-c22.html

Selected poems from our first three titles can be read here: http://www.yettobenamedfreepress.org/p/selected-poems.html

Please stop by and take a look, maybe you'll like what you see, maybe you'll want to get involved, we're always open to fresh ideas to take short-verse to new and exciting places.

Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas is the first land set aside by congress long before the national park system was established. It was set aside in 1832 by congress for the benefit of future citizens to enjoy the healing waters of the Valley of the Vapors. This is also the city where a young seven-year-old fatherless boy began elementary school after moving here with his mother. He grew up and became first the governor of Arkansas and then president of the United States. Bill Clinton played jazz in Hot Springs in the 50's and early 60's while still in high school.
