Welcome to our new blog, where we are taking a new approach to sharing the stories of our books with our readers. We will be posting a Picture a Day from one of our many titles to give you a glimpse into the stories we work on every day. Sprinkled in with the beautiful photographs we will also share insights into the world of publishing and host some giveaways and fun trivia challenges. Subscribe to our RSS feed to make sure you don’t miss any of the amazing photographs and content.
Meanwhile, enjoy this greeting and vision from our Publisher, Peter Norton:
Greetings from the Thunder Bay Press Publisher
Articulating the vision behind a publishing list in 2012 can be as challenging as explaining vowels to a five year old. It’s easy to fall back on the A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y refrain. My daughter isn’t placated by the list and likes to focus on the “why” behind the Y. Asking “why” is something we do often here at Thunder Bay Press. Taking a moment to pause and reflect upon our Spring 2012 list provides the clarity of hindsight.
E-books are exciting, and we’re proud to offer well over 20 new E-book titles. We also have several enhanced e-books exclusive to Blio.
Intellectual pursuits are also important to us. We work very hard to find interesting and intriguing ways to share and dispense knowledge. Check out Everything You Need to Know About Everything You Need to Know About.
Original formats excite us. We love physical books and believe that there are still as many uncharted territories to explore in the physical book world as there are in the digital realm.
Unique approaches to ubiquitous things are our ultimate goal. We are proud to launch our Past to Present Guided Tour Series this Spring. Learn about the living history of five great cities through a guided tour, be it from the comfort of your home, or the city sidewalks.
Y—“because we like you.”…
…and because we believe that books, like vowels, provide the clearest, most open voice for the human spirit—be it on a syllabus or in between the syllables.
