Since we only publish one title per year, you know any Cairn Press book you pick up will be awesome. Profound-like. Life changing. Intense. Beautiful. You know. Literature.
Our 2014 submission period is now closed. If you submitted to the rejection anthology, please be patient. We are about three weeks behind schedule finalzing selections. Sarah Nadolny is currently choosing our next novel/author to publish, and we are thankful for a great submission period and fantastic readers.
Meanwhile, on the home front...
We're very excited to announce the release of Jay Shearer's debut novel, Five Hundred Sirens. You'll be awed by this one... And if you missed his launch party in Chicago, too bad for you. However, please stay tuned for forthcoming readings. Congrats to Jay on his recent readings at Powell's Books Chicago and Women and Children First in Andersonville.
Jay Shearer reads during his book launch event, April 25 2014 at Strobe Recording Studio, Chicago.
And the rest of the press?
Matt Pine, our 2013 author, continues to wow anyone who is lucky enough to read his first novel, City Water Light & Power. If you like beautiful prose, to swoon from paragraph to paragraph and hope it never ends, this is your novel. Check out his page and read the recent kick-ass interview with San Francisco Weekly.
Seamus Scanlon's first short story collection, As Close As You’ll Ever Be, is still blowing people’s minds with its utterly original style that is best described as literary noir. And now, it is translated into Spanish. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to be an Irish killer who is pleasant, wry and slightly OCD, then you’ll want to pick up a copy. Check out his page and read a piece of flash fiction… we know you’ll want more.
Aaron Stewart is our official cover photographer, and his work graces the covers for both Matt Pine and Seamus Scanlon. Please check out his webpage for some jaw-dropping images by this photographer for hire.
To all the great folks we met at the AWP 2014 in Seattle, thank you so much for the support... Let's continue to help each other, promote each other, in our writing and publishing endeavors. We're all in this together.
