Subway Stops in May!

May is N. West Moss month here at Leapfrog. Her collection of short stories, The Subway Stops at Bryant Park, was released earlier this month and has already made its way across the country to several delighted readers.

Moss recently sat down with American Microreviews and Interviews to talk more about the book, her process, and inspirations.

“Without trying to make it so, the park was appearing in almost everything I wrote, as though it was the canvas I was painting on,” Moss explains. “After it appeared in three or four of my stories in a row, I realized what was happening, and made a conscious choice then to write about the park, using the setting as both a backdrop and a character. If, in my mourning, I could not stop thinking about it, I would allow it into my stories.”

Both LibraryThing and Goodreads are doing giveaways of the book until May 18. Visit them for more information and enter to win. Each outlet will give 10 copies for 20 total copies up for grabs!

So far, we’ve heard reports of Subway Stops in Florida…

Leapfrog Press was created to search out, publish, and aggressively market books that tell a strong story. Leapfrog began its life in Wellfleet, Mass., at the outer end of Cape Cod, in 1993. In 2008 we migrated to Falmouth, Mass., and in 2012 we made the move to Fredonia, N.Y., a town with a rich creative history and an equally rich present in the arts and science. Our list is eclectic and includes quality fiction, poetry, and nonfiction; books that are described by the large commercial publishers as midlist, and which we regard as the heart and soul of literature.
