Exterminating Angel Press, growing fast, needs to extend its reach to people who share its goals of telling new stories and discovering new ways of being.

I'm Tod Davies, and, er, apologies for my tiny meltdown in the video above (explanation follows in the next section). I’m the publisher and editorial director of Exterminating Angel Press, which started out as an art project and blossomed into a full scale indie publisher, with ten books out and two more on the way. It always was a different kind of publishing project: we develop relationships with authors through our online magazine, people who write in all genres and all subjects, but have one thing in common: they believe that finding and telling new stories will lead us to finding new, more creative ways of being. 

We publish books of any subject, as long as they spring from that one passionate belief. Whether it’s rock musician Danbert Nobacon (Chumbawamba) collaborating with filmmaker Alex Cox (Repo Man) on an illustrated anarchist fairy tale or actor Miguel Sandoval directing Linda Callahan in a film trailer for poet David Budbill’s genre-bending poem/play Park Songs, we want our books—and our strategies for promoting them—to transcend the page and spark readers’ imaginations in new and unexpected ways.

We never stop finding new ways to advocate for our books because we believe each deserves a long life contributing to our cultural conversation. Our books don’t have a sell by date; we want to keep them in front of the conversation. And the more titles we publish, alas, the more our expenses increase. And the more we need to expand. 


As you can see from the meltdown I had in the video here, like a lot of us, I hate asking for money—it was the one part I could not get right, no matter how I tried. I finally lost it and just blurted. But what I’m realizing is we’re not asking for money; we’re asking for support. And like any normal, healthy person, I do love to give and get support. Because that knits us together as a community; it’s what DOES knit us together. 

As EAP has expanded past the small art project where it began, as we expanded our reach, person by person, so did those expenses involved in getting out there and meeting people at events and festivals, as well as printing costs for larger runs of our books, costs to get the word out about those books, time needed to use social media to find others of like mind, interact with them, and tell them about our books.

We can't do this on our own. We need help. What we're looking for is enough funding to expand our word-spreading and community building: organizing events, going to book fairs, reaching out and meeting like minds in a number of different ways.

More than anything, we hope to foster a community of passionate people who will keep the important conversations we have in person with readers, writers, librarians, and booksellers, going online. Part of what we raise through this campaign will allow us to pay the brightest and most capable intern we’ve ever had to step up our efforts at community building. The more we are able to raise, the more we’ll be able to utilize her outstanding talents. And supporting the talents of the generation that’s coming onto the scene with a bang is one of our cherished goals.


There are a lot of amazing talents from all generations already contributing to Exterminating Angel Press. Our incentives, just like our organization in general, show a wild assortment of cool contributions by cool people, anarchic and fun, who want to contribute getting out new stories. From a poem written by David Budbill, to a song sung by Danbert Nobacon, to an illustration from one of our books drawn by filmmaker Alex Coxand morethese are no mere incentives, they're invitations to play with the rest of us at Exterminating Angel Press.

One of our incentives, the copies of Wickedly Sisters’ award winning Spoon and the Moon app, comes from an EAP contributor who originally found one of our books in a Kentucky library and said, “We want to play there!” So they do.

We’re also offering a whole book club package with a Skype conversation with me. This is definitely self-serving (if there is one thing I love, it’s talking about books with other enthusiasts!) and I’m so particularly looking forward to that one.


If you can't contribute with cashand we know how tough that is these daysbut you want to be a part of Exterminating Angel, we're always looking for people to help us spread the word about our books, and add to the conversation about new stories and new ways of being. There are other ways to join with us to do that. You can consider contributing to our online magazine. And you can spread the word about our campaign, and (Indiegogo reminds us to remind you!) you can use the Indiegogo share tools to do it.


Thanks for your time in listening to us – and thanks to all who support Exterminating Angel Press, and who will support it. It's our community that powers us and makes all our work a worthwhile joy.

And remember: We did say “Please.”
