Which Pagan Book Publishers Do You Read?

myrrhmadeand I are beginning work on the 2009 edition of The Occult Authors Market. A lot has changed in the world of publishing since we compited the 2006 edition and a lot of what I call micro-presses have popped up, thanks to the convenience of Print-On-Demand services. I thought it might be interesting to have a discussion about which pagan publishers you read, and why you like them.

For example, I just heard about Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which is a kind of collaborative non-profit publishing venture between the author and the publisher with the proceeds supporting various charities.

So who is your favorite publisher, and why?

I'm biased -- I like Megalithica at least in part because they published me, but also because they're stepping outside the 101 market and publishing intermediate to advanced material for different techniques and traditions. Also, they have a seriously kick-ass editorial staff!

Strong editorial assistance is always good. Are you happy with the terms of your contract? Do they pay promptly? Do they offer any marketing? These are the kinds of details that I want to include in the 2009 edition.

Yes, I'm very happy with them and plan to publish my next book through them as well. I work pretty much entirely with lupagreenwolf and teriel as my editors and proof readers, and they've been very encouraging. Authors do need to do some of their own publicity work, but they pay when they say they will. Please talk to the two of them for details of your Occult Writers Market. I'm sure they'd be happy to answer any questions.

Yes, I know Taylor and Lupa. They've done a lot to help improve the quality of pagan nonfiction.

accessibility

My husband is legally blind and needs alternative format material. It would be great if there was an indication of which publishers/books are available in formats such as:
downloadable digital format
audio (both the digital and the audio need to be formatted for the blind community, therefore indexed accessibly, there are specific guidelines for it. however any audio would be better than none.)
large print
braille

He is always frustrated at the lack of pagan/occult material that is in a format that he can use. He is also a librarian who manages a regional chapter of the Talking Book and Braille Library and is on the lookout for things to add to the library collection.
