Wapshott Press was founded in 2007 as a good deed to publish one of Ginger Mayerson’s Sequential Tart sister’s short story. She was going through hard times, and although Ginger couldn’t do anything about her health or finances, she could certainly publish a story. Ginger was shocked that the story had been accepted for publication, changes were requested and made, and then the publisher rejected it. Since it was so much fun, a 2nd erotica anthology was published. It occurred to Ginger that about half the stories weren’t adult content and should have their own publication. Storylandia began in 2009 to publish the “not erotica” that Wapshott Press was founded on. The Press incorporated as an LLC in 2009, and then changed to a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2016 on the advice of our tax professional.
(Erotica at Wapshott contued through Erotique, which ceased publication in 2016.)
Ginger Mayerson passed away in March 2021 after a battle with lung cancer. She leaves behind Wapshott Press.
The future of Wapshott is uncertain at this point, it will never be the same without Ginger’s editorial eye. The Ginger Mayerson Trust is currently working toward archiving Ginger’s many artistic works and figuring out how to keep her legacy alive.
