Cold Saké, first of our large-print editions

New Releases, Publishing Business

One of the demographics usually overlooked by the entertainment industry is people with disabilities. We see this in gaming, with games that challenge the hand-eye coordination of even fully able bodies. We see this in online video, where closed captioning is considered extra, not essential. And we see it in book publishing, where but a tiny fraction of books are ever released in large-print editions.

We want to change that, at least for our books, so we’ve started laying out large-print editions of our more popular titles.

We started with Katherine M. Lawrence’s Cold Saké because it is short and, well, it was the first book we published. The large-print edition of Cold Saké is already available on Amazon and will be rolling out as available to other retailers in the coming days.

Carlyle Clark writes:

Still, at no time was I bored or worried that major conflict would not be forthcoming, in fact the pace of the story mirrored the feel of the times, which was probably and intentional choice by the author. I can’t tell you why I believe that because it would be a spoiler. In fact, revealing any of the interesting things would be spoilers because they are all weaved together to create a strong ending in which Lawrence was deft enough to play off of reader’s expectations (and my own personal fear this story might tread down the well-worn road toward a condescending but common type of development) to create surprises toward the end which makes me confident she knew what she was doing. You don’t write an excellent story by accident.

That’s just a snippet. Read the whole thing.
