Announcing White Soup Press!
Published November 26, 2012 | By Abigail Reynolds
Jane Austen“… as for the ball, it is quite a settled thing; and as soon as Nicholls has made white soup enough I shall send round my cards.” – Pride & Prejudice
This month has been full of surprises and gifts from Austen Authors to our readers – giveaways, sales and P&P200 posts for your enjoyment. Today’s surprise is different; it’s a present for us, one that’s been in the works for many months. Today is the 201st anniversary of the Netherfield Ball, the perfect day to unveil White Soup Press, a new publishing imprint for the authors who are part of this blog.
This idea grew out of discussion between various AuAus who were publishing independently or planning to do so in the future. Pooling our knowledge, experience, and publicity efforts was a natural next step. At White Soup Press, just as at Austen Authors, we’re committed to maintaining professional quality in our books. That means that readers can count on a White Soup Press book to be edited, copy-edited, formatted correctly, and written by an experienced and accessible author.
We’re still in the early stages of this venture. Many of the recent White Soup Press releases were published under the White Soup Press imprint, and older books are in the process of being converted to the new imprint. Five Austen Authors already have books actively for sale through WSP, with many others joining in the next year as their new books become available. The majority of WSP books are Austenesque novels, but there are original novels as well. We have modern adaptations and books set in the Regency or other historical periods, plus time travel books for those who want the best of both worlds.
