Here's to 2022! And Here's a Sale...
2022 was a big year for ASP and our writers. In March, we had a booth at the annual AWP Conference, and our offsite reading, featuring authors Saida Agostini, Dave Housley, Elizabeth Hazen, and Richard Peabody, along with special guests Teri Ellen Cross Davis and Leslie Pietrzyk, had a standing-room-only audience packed with literary stars.
In April, ASP sponsored the American Authors Weekend at the Oxford Literary Festival in Oxford, England. Saida Agostini, David Downie, Elizabeth Hazen and Dave Housley each gave fabulous presentations on their current titles, and ASP co-founder Rose Solari chaired two panels.
In autumn, we launched David Downie’s Roman Roulette, his second Daria Vinci mystery, with a book tour that included appearances at Politics & Prose in Washington, DC, Book Passage in Corte Madeira, California, and the Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco.
We’re so very glad to be back to live readings, and grateful to all who came out in support of our authors. In gratitude, we celebrating 12 years of independent literary publishing with a special holiday offer: All ASP titles are on sale here for just $10. Order more than one and we’ll throw in a surprise free gift!
We’ve got big plans for 2023, so stay tuned!! And thank you for your support of ASP — A Small Press With Big Ideas.

Pastan was the author of the 2018 poetry book A Dog Runs Through It, which won the Towson University Literary Award.
