I'm the founder of Tough Poets Press. I've published five books of literary fiction and non-fiction and successfully funded them all on Kickstarter. Ask me anything about independent publishing.
Tough Poets Press is a one-person independent publisher of rediscovered experimental and offbeat literary fiction and non-fiction. To date, I've published two Beat Generation-related titles: The Whole Shot: Collected Interviews with Gregory Corso (2015), Sarpedon: A Play by Gregory Corso (2016); and resurrected three out-of-print books by the experimental postmodern writer Marvin Cohen: Others, Including Morstive Sternbump (2016), The Self-Devoted Friend (2017), and Baseball as Metaphysics (2017).I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring out a collection of newly discovered, previously unpublished stories and novellas by Cohen written in the mid-1960s.

I'd be happy to share my experiences with other small publishers or authors interested in self-publishing.
