San Francisco, July 31, 2012 – Day Street Press, an ebook publisher launched by the founder of a 1,500-strong writer’s group based in San Francisco, announced today the publication of its first title: Gene Pool: Unnatural Selection, a science fiction novel by futurist and author R. A. Finlayson. Gene Pool: Unnatural Selection is now available on Amazon.com, B&N.com and the iBook store for the Kindle, Nook, iPad and iPhone.

“The book publishing paradigm has rapidly evolved over the past few years with the explosive growth of e-readers, but services to support independent authors have lagged behind,” explained Rennie Saunders, founder of Shut Up & Write! and president of Day Street Press. “We want to help fill that gap by helping writers who are committed to their craft publish successfully. We are very excited to bring our first title to market, and especially gratified that it is from one of the founding members of Shut Up & Write!”  

Gene Pool: Unnatural Selection would never exist and would never have made it to market without the support of Rennie and fellow members of Shut Up & Write!,” said R. A. Finlayson, Gene Pool author. “Obviously it’s an exciting day for me, but the publication of Gene Pool: Unnatural Selection marks the next evolution in book publishing where authors take control of their own destiny. As an author, I’m convinced Day Street Press is the future of book publishing.”
