Erynn Rowan Laurie’s latest book The Well of Five Streams: Essays on Celtic Paganism is now available from Immanion Press!

Five streams flow from Manannán’s well in the Land of Promise; those who seek inspiration must drink from the well and the five streams. Finding this well requires dedication to the pursuit of wisdom. The book you hold contains the fruit of over twenty years of thought and deep exploration by this Celtic polytheist theologian. Much of the included material is out of print or hard to find, but there are also new pieces for long-time readers of Laurie’s work. There are essays on non-Celtic paths, examinations of Gaelic poetic traditions, musings on sacred madness, community, entheogens, the role of gender in Brigidine flamekeeping, and much more.

How to Recognize a Vanity Publisher

Recently I’ve gotten several emails from authors who’ve indicated interest in publishing books with us. Each time, however, they have asked me how much it would cost to get their book published. I’ve been surprised by the question, so I want to make it clear that Immanion Press is NOT a vanity publisher. We do not charge people to publish their books nor will we ever. The way we make our money is on the actual book sales. That’s an important distinction to note, but it’s only part of what separates us from vanity publishers. I though I’d write about what a vanity publisher is and how to recognize them.

A vanity publisher will charge you to print your book. They actually don’t publish it so much as they make print copies for you. There is no distribution offered and usually no services such as layout or editing or offered, or if they are you have to pay an additional fee. I’m honestly surprised vanity publishers even still exist, because it’s actually cheaper for you to use a Print on Demand model than to go with a vanity publisher. Regardless you aren’t getting much from a vanity publisher and I’d recommend avoiding them.

An actual publisher doesn’t charge you to publish your book. They don’t charge you for the editing or the layout either. The publisher also provides distribution. If you want to publish a book with a publisher, make sure they don’t charge you for those services. If they are charging they are vanity publishers and they aren’t worth the price.
