Dear H-Kentucky members,
Welcome to H-Kentucky
The goal of H-Kentucky is to create an online collaborative environment to facilitate communication and the exchange or scholarly and pedagogical ideas among teachers, researchers, scholars, advanced students, and related professionals (e.g. local historians, librarians, archivists, genealogists), all in an open, democratic, respectful and non-partisan manner. H-Kentucky especially welcomes those who are interested in Kentucky, as well as those in any history/humanities field who live and/or work in Kentucky.
I am a new member if the H-Net Kentucky discussion list and I wanted to formally introduce myself and my company, The History Press. We are a traditional publisher that focuses on local and regional history and culture books by local authors and historians. We handle all aspects of the publishing process from financial, editorial, design, and production to sales, marketing, and distribution. We also compensate our authors in the form of royalties. We are not a vanity press, therefore, we do not require financing for our publications.
