I’ve been toying with the idea of starting my own publishing imprint for some time and after some consideration and consultation with others, I’ve decided to go for it.
I’m delighted to say that my baby “Strange Days Press” will soon be up and running and will publish my novella The Locked Room which I hope will go to market around November of this year.
I’m well aware of the pitfalls of the self-publishing industry and indeed some of the stigma that surrounds it, however I feel I have a decent business model in place for the imprint and my intention is to work with professional, quality editors, artists and formatting service providers to produce good quality products both in print and digital formats.
My writing mojo has discovered a little bit of a second wind lately and I feel passionate enough about the new material I’m writing to go ahead with this. Whilst it is a lot of work and I’m sure there’ll be some bumps along the way, it’s also an exciting project for me to focus on. Through Strange Days Press, my aim is to give my work the best possible independent platform it can have.
If the Press is successful and grows, it may well be the case I can work with other authors in the future, too. But for the moment, I will not be accepting submissions from authors.
I currently have a website under construction for the Press which will launch within the near future.
That’s it for now and thanks for stopping by my blog.
