Good to know

"WE DO NOT PUBLISH SHORT STORY COLLECTIONS OR NOVELS"
The content does not have to be queer or trans related
Please be mindful that a single person operates Damaged Goods Press on a tight budget with minimal PR skills. Caseyrenée just likes making books by queer and trans writers available to the world. If you are seeking a lot of publicity, royalties, and mainstream recognition we are not the press for you. But if you are into writing and publishing because you have a story to tell and want to work with a person who believes in your writing then DGP might be the spot for you.
