Sullivan Street Press is in business to change the publishing paradigm and to change our paradigm as technology and the needs of our readers change.
Our business is now based on the following principles:
- We consider ourselves a green e-publishing company that is ever mindful of the environmental impact on the production of books, whether bound or e-books
- We seek out those who need help telling their stories and try to help them reach a wider audience and realize the benefits of being a writer in a global community
- We too seek to be parts of various communities–we do this by offering a variety of distribution methods for our books, by participating in social networking and developing new tools for writers
About Deborah Emin
Deborah Emin began her publishing career in a time and place that have truly disappeared. Those were the days when the person hired to answer the phone could go on to become an editor. When moving among companies happened often both to increase pay and to meet new challenges in a business that was truly about books and what they could add to the culture.
Times changed as did the business. Deborah left it and became a creative writing teacher. She learned to become a better writer through her teaching, and she also learned, eventually, how to blog and to write political commentary. Trying lots of new things meant she could experience first hand how the changes in communication and reading in this country were affecting the publishing and larger media world as a whole.
Now with SSP, she is able to share with everyone all the News You Can Use to stay informed about how the media world changes almost daily. By placing this news into a wider context–environmentally, politically, economically–she can help book lovers realize that these changes are truly earth shattering. These changes demand that we become more than just being a “click-and-buy” culture but that we really think about what it is we are buying and how we are utilizing this new technology.
