Want to support your local bookstore? Check out our listings on Bookshop.org -- any of our books can be ordered through a local, independent bookstore near you! Bookshop says: "Bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. We believe that bookstores are essential to a healthy culture." We believe that, too!
If you prefer to use mail order, consider avoiding Amazon -- which negatively impacts both local bookstores and small presses. Visit our store at our online independent distributor, Parlew Distribution, at: https://www.parlewdistribution.com/store/c2/Frayed_Edge_Press.html#/
We're pleased to announce a more stream-lined process for online sales of our titles through partnership with the Parlew Distribution online bookstore. This relationship allows our customers to more easily order multiple titles, be charged regularized shipping costs, and have shipping options to the US, Canada, and the UK. In celebration of this partnership, we're offering 10% off all FEP non-sale items, from now through Halloween, with the code BOO!2019.
In addition to the Parlew Distribution Bookstore, our books may be purchased from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and bricks-and-mortar independent bookstores near you! Explore all the options with the direct links on each title's webpage: https://www.frayededgepress.com/books-overview.html
Frayed Edge Press is happy to announce our partnership with IndieBound, a community of independent local bookstores. Now all book pages on the Frayed Edge Press website will include a link to IndieBound, where readers can find a local, independent bookstore near them.
Independent presses and independent bookstores both struggle in the shadow of Amazon and the glut of self-publication. Support these important parts of the publishing world by shopping local at your friendly neighborhood bookstore, and buying and reviewing books by authors published by legitimate independent publishing houses. The future of the independent press depends on it!
Welcome to Frayed Edge Press!
Welcome to Frayed Edge Press, a new independent publisher located in Philadelphia. Our goal is to publish works that are "a bit on the fringe" -- books that express alternative viewpoints and/or that might find a less welcoming reception in the mainstream press. We will be publishing both fiction and poetry, as well as non-fiction works in history and political science. We support diverse books and are particularly interested in, but not limited to, works expressing the viewpoints of women, people of color, ethnic and religious minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community.
Thank you for visiting our website, please sign up for our mailing list (form on the home page), and stay tuned for announcements concerning our forthcoming books, special deals, and other useful information!
