There are many fine places where you can anonymously crank out a book. Beaver’s Pond Press isn’t one of them. If we were, we’d have a hipper name.

So heads up: If you want to publish here, we'll have to get to know each other, even if we never meet in person. If we don't get to know each other, how else will your book become excellent?

Our process relies on a lot of human interaction, judgment calls, and tough love. We know that no two authors and no two books are the same, so that's how we roll. We've been doing this since before Facebook, and before PayPal. Heck, back when our company first started, you could board an airplane without picture ID. Now that we've got over 600 books to our name, it stands to reason that we'd have this whole publishing thing down to a science. But you know what? We don't. Because this is not a science. It's an art. And that applies to science books, too.

  • April 19 Meeting: PW's Claire Kirch



    Claire has been senior correspondent for Publishers Weekly, covering the Midwest for several years. Her articles span a wide range of publishing topics as you can see at

    Claire will talk about her experiences, the changes she’s seen in publishing, and the lessons authors and publishers have learned, which undoubtedly will include the timing of book reviews. Join us on Wednesday, April 19, a week later than our usual meeting night, at Midland Hills.

    We'll also ask our attendees to talk about the mistakes they've made and what they wish they had known when they started in publishing so we can all learn from each other. This is the final meeting of the year since May is our Book Awards Gala (finalists will be announced in mid-April).
    Who: Claire Kirch of Publisher's Weekly
    What: Learning from Claire and from each other (What we wish we had known)
    Where: Midland Hills Country Club, 2001 Fulham Ave, Roseville. [map]
    When: April 19, 2017, 7 pm (but come early to network)
    Why: We don't know what we don't know, but we can learn
