As a publisher, we are primarily interested in literary speculative fiction.
This week I received in the mail two books that I’m very excited about: The Promise of Paradise by Andrew Scott and The Orange Balloon Dog by Don Thompson. I designed the interiors of both books, but they are each special for a different reason.
Our Onça Classics crowdfunding campaign ended over two years ago, short of our goal but still viable. But just when we were about to print the books, sudden financial stresses took hold. Fortunately, by taking on more design and editorial freelance work, we have found the light at the end of this tunnel.
Decmber 3, 2015, marked the one-year anniversary of the end of our Indiegogo campaign. In 2014, we asked you to support the production and release of our first title, a special edition of dr. jekyll and mr. hyde, by R. L. Stevenson. After so much time, I would like to give you an update.
