A Little About Us
What’s a writer without a reader but a voice calling out in the wilderness?
What’s a reader without a writer?
There is no such thing. Uniting writers and readers over good stories (poems, too) is the mission of New Bay Books, a new publishing house for Chesapeake Country. To that mission, my New Bay Books partner (and husband) William Lambrecht and I bring more than a quarter century of experience.
The mission inspired us to join with son Alex Knoll to create New Bay Times newspaper back in 1993 and to sustain a journalism enterprise for twenty-seven buffeting years. New Bay Times continues as Bay Weekly, now under the ownership of Chesapeake Bay Media. The mission — finding, developing, editing, publishing and distributing good stories for good reading — continues with New Bay Books.
What does our mission mean for you?
To readers, New Bay Books brings good books …
To writers, New Bay Books brings opportunity ...
