At least once a month, a reader or vendor asks for a tour of our publishing facilities.
“We’d love to see your printing presses and meet your designers and editors.”
So it is fun to explain that Lost Art Press is just two guys with laptops who work from their homes. All our books are in a warehouse now (whew), but we still just build and write from our couches.
To satisfy requests for a tour, however, here is a brief video tour of my shop and office in Fort Mitchell, Ky. John Hoffman, my partner, has a similar setup in his home in Indiana.
While we certainly could afford offices and employees, we are committed to publishing books with almost no overhead so we can return more money to our authors. And so here is a look at where I work almost every day.
As Westley said in “The Princess Bride:” “Get used to disappointment.”
