Cursor Launches

CursorCursor, the publishing venture founded by Richard Nash, announced the launch of its first imprint – Red Lemonade. It will publish three titles on its maiden list in Spring 2011:

Someday This Will Be Funny by Lynne Tillman (April 2011)
Zazen by Vanessa Veselka (May 2011)
Follow Me Down by Kio Stark (June 2011)

Red Lemonade will also bring back into print four of Tillman’s backlist titles: Haunted Houses, Motion Sickness, Cast in Doubt, and No Lease on Life.

In a press release, Nash said, “While Cursor’s aim is nothing less than the reinvention of the publishing business model, all publishing begins with the writer, in our case three writers, all women, one an internationally-celebrated novelist, the other two thrilling debuts by writers with long careers ahead of them. They are powerful representatives of the kind of writing Red Lemonade will foster, house, and promote.”

Nash has been promoting the project for awhile. Here he is at O’Reilly’s TOC Conference in February discussing the future of publishing:

Mr. Nash is one of the most forward-thinking members in publishing today. Like the commercials for E.F. Hutton in the 1970’s, when he talks – people listen.

I think the idea behind Cursor is a good one. I wish him well.
