A dead key is the key on a typewriter used so the carriage doesn't advance, creating a unique character that is not visible on a traditional keyboard. When struck alone, it produces nothing. But working in conjunction with another key, it produces a distinctive character.
Unpublished works are like dead keys. It is not until we bring the work to publishing in order to be shared that something special is created.
At Dead Key Publishing, our passion is to be the next key.
