A Passion-Driven Career Move

The founder of Felony & Mayhem press, Maggie Topkis, likes mysteries--yet found that a lot of the kind she most admires were out of print. So, according to The Week magazine (summarizing a story originally in Forbes), she read about a machine that could print out a paperback in seventeen minutes.

She got the rights to a British mystery Death in the Garden that had come out in '95 and started printing copies. That was the beginning. She has since gone on to publish more than forty titles--"bringing the best in bygone mysteries back to life."

Where there's a will, there's a way?

I saw something about a similar BEA coverage, perhaps. Sort of a end-user print-on-demand vending machine for books!

I think of the routes of getting books to readers a bit in terms of the human circulatory system: where there's a block in a vessel, the surrounding will do their best to create a new pathway.

I like the path you're currently on with Souvenir. I hope it's a bestseller.
