VIDEO REVIEW: 2 CHAPBOOKS FROM MUD LUSCIOUS PRESS & AN IMPORTANT TIP FOR SMALL PRESSES


In this episode I talk about the two latest chapbooks from Mud Luscious Press.

Three Scenarios Leading to the Rape of a Teenage Girl in the Tropicool Icy-land Urban Indian Slum by Kuzhali Manickavel

The Transit Illuminate by Michael Bernstein

Also, I talk about a simple, yet important branding tip. If you run a small press, or you plan to start one in the future, you will definitely want to hear what I have to say. It’s so easy to implement, yet many presses don’t do it, and they are missing out on a way to build their brand and market their books. [You can click the tag dot on the video if you don’t care to hear about about the chapbooks and want to go right to the message.]
