As it turns out, Los Angeles is not only teeming with writers, but it’s also teeming with small, independent presses. Sure lots of attention has been focused a certain big house packing up its red pencils and moving to the land of eternal sunshine and good cheer, but what about the publishers who already call our fair city home?

The LA Weekly offers a tour of our town’s publishers. As it turns out, there are publishers outside of New York. Next: we debunk the myth that the 405 is a freeway.

    Unfortunately, I think the Visitors and Convention Bureau has been pushing the idea of the 405 as freeway for so long that it has become Urban legend — you know, the kind where no matter how many times you tell people the facts, the myth lingers on…

    Thanks for the links on small presses.

    Glad to help — and, between you and me, the 405 just zips along at arounf 40 this time of night. Or it would if there wasn’t so much construction.

    I didn’t know where was the right place to post this comment, but I’m totally infatuated with Booksquare’s sense of humor and felt compelled to say so. Thank you for making me laugh in the morning, even when I’m feeling humorless about other things.
