CCM is pleased to announce the first annual CCM COMPENDIUM. This is an idea that’s been bouncing around in the back of my mind for at least a year now, and thanks to the help of Ryan W Bradley (who created this fabulous hardcover wraparound cover design) and dozens upon dozens of CCM authors, the idea is now a reality.
Acting as a synergy of present and future, the 2015 CCM COMPENDIUM will feature work by every author published by the press in 2015 as well as samples of work from every author with a forthcoming publication in CCM’s 2016 Catalogue. What does this mean? It means you can expect writing from:
(2015 Catalogue) xTx, Brandi Wells, AT Grant, Andrea Kneeland, Jayinee Basu, Sean H Doyle, Katie Jean Shinkle, M Kitchell, Darby Larson, John Colasacco, Jamie Iredell, Brandon Hobson, Mark Katzman, Ben Brooks, Ryan W Bradley, Kirsten Alene, Brian Oliu, Corey Zeller, and Evan Retzer
(2016 Catalogue) Janice Lee, Johannes Goransson, Alexandra Naughton, Dolan Morgan, Matthew Simmons, Gary J Shipley, Ashley Farmer, Laura Marie Marciano, Justin Sirois, Sara June Woods, Madison Langston, Carolyn Zaikowski, Tobias Carroll, Joshua Jennifer Espinosa, Andrew Miller, Ctch Bsnss, Wendy C Ortiz, Henry Hoke, Helen McClory, and Mathias Svalina
At the conclusion of every yearly Catalogue, CCM will publish a Compendium to celebrate the passing of the torch, of sorts, from one year to the next. Each Compendium will be published in a high quality hardcover edition, designed to sit next to both its representative Catalogue of titles as well as other, future Compendiums. It’s my hope that by offering this showcase, readers will be able to enjoy some of their favorite writers’ work in one convenient place as well as discover (and anticipate) the work of writers they might not have known about prior to the Compendium.
The 2015 CCM COMPENDIUM will be available January 13th 2016 wherever books are sold. We’re coping.
