Publisher’s comments Following the recent death of writer/publisher Anyda Marchant (pen name, Sarah Aldridge), at age 95, A&M Books of Rehoboth Beach is making available all 14 of the classic and groundbreaking Sarah Aldridge novels. Written between 1974 and 2003, the novels represent a melding of history, feminism and lesbian romance. The first novel was published by the fledgling Naiad Press, which went on to become the largest and most successful lesbian/feminist publisher in the country. Marchant was Naiad president from its founding until 1995.
In 1995, Marchant and Muriel Crawford, (her partner of more than half a century) withdrew from Naiad and founded A&M Books of Rehoboth Beach, DE. The last Sarah Aldridge book, O, Mistress Mine, was written and published when the author was 92 years young. A&M Books, continuing under the leadership of writer Fay Jacobs (Author of As I Lay Frying – A Rehoboth Beach Memoir) is set to carry out the legacy begun by Marchant and Crawford - making all of the Sarah Aldridge titles available once again and continuing to give women writers a voice. Author Comments “Publishing is not about the money, it’s about giving women a voice to tell their stories – and every book is an ambassador.”
Anyda Marchant (Sarah Aldridge) 1911-2006
