Monadnock Valley Press Annual Report 2014


Unfortunately, 2014 was another slow year at the Monadnock Valley Press, the public-domain website and small-scale publishing house I run on the side. Back in January of last year I changed jobs, so I was just as busy as ever (perhaps even more so).

However, I did manage to eke out a bit of publishing here and there: a bunch of works by Thoreau, a few related writings by Emerson, the Last Poems by A.E. Housman, the Maxims and Reflections of Goethe, selected poems by William Butler Yeats, and Pillars of Society (the first of the great modern prose dramas by Ibsen).

We also pulled in a grand total of $312.68 in revenue from our ebooks and print books. That's a 29% increase from 2013, with (as usual) no marketing whatsoever. Perhaps someday we'll actually promote our work. :-)

In 2015 I'm planning to republish the second of Ibsen's prose plays (A Doll's House), the Analects of Confucius, some essays by Montaigne, more works by Emerson and Thoreau, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, and perhaps a few other works that I haven't considered quite yet. As always, however, I make no promises because my paid employment takes priority...
