Denver Publishing Institute in the House

TricksterLast Friday, Fulcrum opened its doors to one hundred publishing students from the University of Denver Publishing Institute, who were here to learn about the publishing industry from the point of view of a small, western/midwestern indie. We discussed the process behind publishing books like Eisner Award–nominated Trickster, and the (debatably) trickier process of landing a job in the publishing biz during a time of declining book sales, mass bookstore layoffs, and the omnipresent competition of a little thing known as the Internet. Our advice (for both making good books and nabbing a publishing job): a copy of Advanced Potion-Making by Libatius Borage, eye of skink, and the long-lost half of an ancient and mysterious golden amulet.

In other Fulcrum news, with summer winding down, we’re looking forward to the arrival of our fall list. Next month we have two great books coming out:

The Legal Universe by David Wilkins and Vine Deloria Jr. is a comprehensive examination of the historical evolution of the legal rights of various minority groups and the relationship between these rights and the philosophical intent of the American founders.

The Hank Adams Reader is a collection of Hank Adams's previously unpublished letters and essays.
