I’ve gotten a few emails about this, so I figured it was time to post something about my writing, editing anthologies, and my role as Acquisitions Editor of Ambrotos Press.
As I touched on in my article for Morpheus Tales #11, it’s all about diversifying yourself. This also goes into why I don’t ever see myself having an agent. Reason being; I really do enjoy all aspects of the publishing world – from writing a story, editing them, or working with a publisher on the business side of things. I find the process of each thing fascinating, and I think if you follow me on here or on Facebook, you’ll see how passionate I am about it all. I enjoy crafting a story just as much as working with another author to get their short story, novella or novel into print. I dig working with cover artists on my own stuff and that of others. Pretty much the whole thing. I can’t speak for the other genres, but folks in the horror realm are some of the nicest and most down to earth people I have ever met. I love this world, even though it does make my blood pressure rise sometimes, and it’s always been my dream to do it fulltime (though some ask how I work two jobs and find time to write…to which I reply…Red Bull) one day – which I have no doubt will happen.
The point of all this is; yes, I am still writing (which can be seen by the number of books I have coming out over the next two years), being the Editor for anthologies AND running Ambrotos Press.
Welcome to my world. This is only the beginning.
