About The Permanent Press


Looking back from January of 2019 to the beginning of Spring, we've had some interesting sales and nominations.

Two of our authors, Kathleen Novak for her book, "The Autobiography of Corrine Bernard: A novel" and Georgeann Packard for "The Occupation of Zaima" were finalists for the 2018 Chautauqua Prize. Len Rosen was nominated as a finalist in two categories for the 2018 Foreword Indie Awards.

We are very excited about our new book about Vietnam by Khanh Ha, that comes out in April. Beautifully written, Booklist gave it a starred review and says: "it should have a place alongside the best fiction of the Vietnam War." Khanh Ha, born in Vietnam and living in Silver Spring, Maryland, is continuing to garner fine reviews.

Blackstone Audio has taken seven of our recent books for their program and William Spencer's older book, "Resume with Monsters" has had its film option renewed. 

Last but not least, Nick is still working here and we have a new associate, Jessica, working with us in the office.

Not a bad start for the first three months of 2019 and we wish everyone a beautiful and pleasant Spring.
