Infinimata Press is the personal publishing imprint for Serdar Yegulalp, an ægis that I use for books of my own creation. Everything that is published through Infinimata Press is from my own hands — not just the writing, but also the artwork, typesetting, layout, the whole package.
Originally, I was focused on writing and publishing books centering around Japan or Asia / the Far East in general, so I chose a name (Genji Press) that seemed fitting. But I decided another name was in order (see this post for more context), and so I settled on Infinimata Press as something more suitable for an SF-and-fantasy imprint.
Go here for a quick rundown of what I have in print right now.
Why did you start doing this?
I started Infinimata Press for a few reasons:
I wanted an outlet for my work where I had complete creative control, so I could publish what I liked without having to deal with the whims of the market or worrying about what would be popular or not.
I wanted to reach the audience of my choice directly, again without worrying about marketability.
I wanted to demonstrate that self-published work could be of high editorial, artistic and literary quality.
I wanted to have fun doing all of the above.
With the advent of print-on-demand publishing, it's become not only possible but easy for me to make all this happen at minimal cost to myself. I can sell individual copies and still make a profit, although I do make a bit more if I manage to sell in volume.
Are your books available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Kindle store, etc.?
Yes, depending on the editions. E-books have taken off to such a degree that I've decided to start marketing my newer work directly as e-books, with print editions as an adjunct via print-on-demand services.
What happened to thegline.com and genjipress.com?
Those were my old domain names. Over time I decided to phase them out, as the names really didn't tell people what I was all about (among other things). genjipress.com will continue to transparently redirect here for the time being.
[If you have other questions, don't hesitate to post them here so I can add them to the FAQ.]
