Francis Levy is an Animal!

Francis Levy, author of the forthcoming novel Erotomania: A Romance (due out from Two Dollar Radio in Summer '08), graces the pages of the Wall Street Journal online health section today, talking about his fitness regimen.

Francis is a self-professed "compulsive fitness addict," who is also a third degree black belt. "Every morning, Mr. Levy rolls out of bed, stands on his head for 30 seconds, does 20 push-ups, about 50 sit-ups and ends with a somersault down his hallway."

Times Literary Supplement

Michael Greenberg, in his column in the Times Literary Supplement (of London) today, calls Rudy Wurlitzer's The Drop Edge of Yonder "mesmerzing. A Western as Celine might have written one, the characters stripped down to the zero degree of their existence. A purgatory of frontier emptiness and mayhem."

Greenberg also gives considerable ink to Two Dollar Radio, calls our list of authors "impressive" and "marvel(s) at [our] idealism."

Two Dollar Radio @ Wordstock!

We're super-excited to be partaking in this year's Wordstock Book Festival, in Portland on November 9 - 11, at the Oregon Convention Center.

At Wordstock, we will be debuting our two Spring 08 titles - The Drop Edge of Yonder (a novel by Rudolph Wurlitzer) and 1940 (a novel by Jay Neugeboren). Both are amazing reads, which is why we're so eager to unleash them.

More information on both of these titles can be found in our "books" section at

You'll also be able to pick up any of our previous releases, our handmade catalogues, and tee shirts whose sale benefits literacy awareness and causes.

See you in Portland.

A New Distributor for Two Dollar Radio

We are pleased to announce that we will be changing distributors beginning January 1, 2008, to Consortium Book Sales & Distribution. This is good for us. We're happy. They presently distribute many of those publishers that we tried to emulate when initially starting out (like Serpents Tail and Akashic).

Despite the delay in our publishing schedule, there is still plenty of work for us to stay busy with. We're bidding our time - twiddling our thumbs, conceiving an imprint, getting tan, possibly purchasing our own offset printing press, catching up on some reading - till the contract kicks in.

We had a great experience in the past with out previous distributor, Biblio, a sister company of the National Book Network, and I would recommend them to anyone starting out with a small press. (

Drop Edge Release Date.

Contrary to our previous posting, the release date for THE DROP EDGE OF YONDER by Rudolph Wurlitzer, will not be until April 2008. We will be debuting the book at this November's Portland book festival, Wordstock (alongside our other new spring release, 1940)!

This is for a couple of reasons, which we hope to fill everyone in on very soon. Thanks for your patience.

In the meantime, if you write for a newspaper/magazine and would be interested in receiving an advance galley of the most buzz-worthy book in the history of time, write to Brian (
