FAQ: About Infinimata Press

What is Infinimata Press, exactly?

Infinimata Press is the personal publishing imprint for Serdar Yegulalp, an ægis that I use for books of my own creation. Everything that is published through Infinimata Press is from my own hands — not just the writing, but also the artwork, typesetting, layout, the whole package.

Originally, I was focused on writing and publishing books centering around Japan or Asia / the Far East in general, so I chose a name (Genji Press) that seemed fitting. But I decided another name was in order (see this post for more context), and so I settled on Infinimata Press as something more suitable for an SF-and-fantasy imprint.

Go here for a quick rundown of what I have in print right now.

Why did you start doing this?

I started Infinimata Press for a few reasons:

  1. I wanted an outlet for my work where I had complete creative control, so I could publish what I liked without having to deal with the whims of the market or worrying about what would be popular or not.
  2. I wanted to reach the audience of my choice directly, again without worrying about marketability.
  3. I wanted to demonstrate that self-published work could be of high editorial, artistic and literary quality.
  4. I wanted to have fun doing all of the above.

With the advent of print-on-demand publishing, it's become not only possible but easy for me to make all this happen at minimal cost to myself. I can sell individual copies and still make a profit, although I do make a bit more if I manage to sell in volume.

Are your books available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Kindle store, etc.?

Yes, depending on the editions. E-books have taken off to such a degree that I've decided to start marketing my newer work directly as e-books, with print editions as an adjunct via print-on-demand services.

Can I get copies of your books signed by you?

Yes. See this page for instructions on how to do that.

What happened to thegline.com and genjipress.com?

Those were my old domain names. Over time I decided to phase them out, as the names really didn't tell people what I was all about (among other things). genjipress.com will continue to transparently redirect here for the time being.

[If you have other questions, don't hesitate to post them here so I can add them to the FAQ.]
