Reading progress update: I've read 32%.
North American Lake Monsters: Stories - Nathan Ballingrud

The first 2 stories were great. This one is making me nauseous only because I'm suffering through another sinus infection. The nurse looked a bit stunned a human could have one so badly without oozing green mess from every opening. Yeah... so I'm easy to make throw up right now.

 

On the bright side, Comcast absolved me of the debt! Woot! I am finally free!

Last year I got a Humble Bundle of Small Bear Press books that I archived and never got to, so I'm dedicating June to at least testing out some of them. I read one last year called Stranger Things Happen that a lot of people seem to like but I hated it. A lot of these look good though. They seem really creative so I'm holding out hope. Once I finish Dragondawn, I will tackle this pile and see where it leads.

Imposter Syndrome By Jason Sizemore (Guest Post)
For Exposure: The Life and Times of a Small Press Publisher - Jason Sizemore

In a 2012 commencement speech to the University of the Arts of Philadelphia graduating class, Neil Gaiman shared a charming anecdote regarding the “fraud police.” In these awful visions, he pictured a stern man with a clipboard coming to his door. The man was there to tell him it was all over, they’d caught up with him, and Neil would have to get a real job—a job that involved him not writing to make a living, but getting up early every morning, putting on a suit tie, and going out in the world to work.

Think about that for a moment . . .

Small Press Expo

I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know when the Small Press Expo is happening in Bethesda MD this year?  I haven't been in 10 years- way before my son was born. This year I really got back into comics and really want to go again but their site hasn't been updated and want to write down the dates so I can go this year.

Capclave Schedule

Woefully behind on a lot of things, but very pleased to announce my schedule for the upcoming Capclave...before Capclave is actually here :) In addition to the Dark Quest Launch party being held at 6pm on Saturday, featuring: The Raven, the Elf, and Rachel (L. Jagi Lamplighter), Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn (Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed), Trust and Treachery (edited by Day Al-Mohamed and Meriah Crawford), and With Great Power (edited by John L.

Running a publishing company, publishing a magazine or semi-pro zine. What's worked for you? What hasn't? How do you handle the intellectual property rights? How do you publicize your product? How do you get it into stores? What should your website look like? If you're publishing books do you want to do print copy and e-books? Only e-books (and maybe some POD)?
