Dink Press, an obituary

I am saddened to announce that Dink Press will be permanently shutting down. The idea of the press first came to me when I was 15 years old. Nearly 10 years later, a few months shy of 25, I have come to the realization that trying to run a company based on a teenager’s framework is both unrealistic and unsustainable. In order to grow as a publisher, Dink Press will have to be left behind.

Starting September 10, 2021 the Dink Press Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts will be deactivated, and all physical sales will be halted. The email address (dinkpress@gmail.com) and this webpage will remain active. In a nod to Derek Beaulieu all Dink Press titles will be available for free as PDFs below. If you are the author of one of these volumes and wish for it to be removed please email us at the address listed above.

Thank you to everyone who played a part in this company, it has been a wonderful dream.
