Pay What You Can

Monday, March 26th, 2018

Do you long to purchase the artbook GERALD SQUIRES but are strapped for cash at present?

I am always willing to accept PWYC (pay what you can) terms. The reason for Pedlar Press’s existence is to put excellent books (stories, poems, essays, in other words, thinking) into readers’ hands. Class, race, gender, ability, education, access—Pedlar understands that obstacles to books exist.

Talk to me: ask for what you need. The entire relationship between author, publisher and reader is meant to benefit each of us.
