Crossed Fingers and Held Breath

The most exciting part of this whole press business is getting to read some great stories. (Even if we never accept them for a magazine. That doesn’t mean they aren’t good or intriguing.)

And I found a novel that I’m interested in. Now comes the anticipation. Will the author say yes?

After that, it’s editorial and a quick, fast dive down into marketing, production, and those wonderful sorts of things.

(I have learned more about copyright, ISBN’s, and book distribution than I ever really wanted to. Publishing’s still a dark morass of hundreds of years of history, changes, misinformation, and half-heard hearsay – no matter how much you can find on the internet and in books these days.)

So, hopefully, a break out novel coming for GFP. (Or more!)

So far I can confirm :

Wee Tales Vol. 1 coming in early October. (Pre-order through the Kickstarter and get nifty extras)

Cherry Blossom Express by Kate Ressman coming in late October.

Refractions Vol. 1 coming in early November

The Fandom Universe: Indelible Ink: Essays on the Harry Potter Fandom

The Case of the Armadillo  – the first in a series of kid’s mysteries inspired by Edgar Allan Poe

Next year :

Wee Tales Vol. 2 in April

Refractions Vol. 2 in May
