Dzanc Books to Publish Jac Jemc
February 8, 2013 - Ann Arbor, MI—Dzanc Books is proud to announce that it will once again publish a work of fiction by Jac Jemc. We will publish Jac’s short story collection, A Different Bed Every Time, in October 2014. Having previously published her novel, My Only Wife, which was named to Best of 2012 lists by Shelf Unbound and Vol. I Brooklyn, we couldn’t be more excited to keep our publishing relationship ongoing.
Jac Jemc is the author of My Only Wife (Dzanc Books, 2012) and These Strangers She'd Invited In (Greying Ghost Press, 2011). She lives in Chicago where she's the poetry editor of decomP and a fiction web editor for Hobart. You can learn more at jacjemc.com.
She noted, “It was such an honor and a thrill to put out my first novel with Dzanc, and I couldn't be happier to be working with them again to release this collection of stories. My admiration and respect for the work Dzanc puts out and its mission only grows with time. It's a privilege to be a part of this family.”
“We loved being a part of bringing Jac’s words to the world with My Only Wifeand were thrilled to find she had a full collection of stories she was ready to go with,” said Dan Wickett, Director of Dzanc. “It didn’t take us long to realize we wanted to be the publisher of this collection as well—Jac’s poetic style of writing is just as suited to the short form as it was the novel.”
