Any aspiring writers out there should be very familiar with how hard it is to get noticed, let alone published, in the mainstream world of corporate publishing houses, where TV spinoffs, celebrity bios and other junk often proliferates. An independent publisher founded in 2005, Two Dollar Radio is aptly named for its loud and aggressive attitude toward accomplishing the goal of providing publishing opportunities for books of strong, edgy literary and cultural merit. The website is a developing, yet informative source for Two Dollar Radio’s publications, as well as an avenue to advertise through their events page and T-shirt sales. The publisher’s well-maintained blog provides extensive information about their latest news and books. Two Dollar Radio claims to publish “Books Too Loud to Ignore.” It seems Two Dollar Radio cannot be ignored either.
