Amoeba Ink is a new publisher, taking it's baby steps into the publishing world. Our initial focus is fantasy with multimedia potential and niche nonfiction.
What are you working on next?
We are editing the romantic-comic-action-adventure-fantasy novel "Seventh Night". And we're always working to improve our designs for Cafepress and Zazzle.
One of artists, Ashley Malone has started working on new pages for her Orange and Blue Cream comic, and we look forward to being involved with supporting that project.
Are you open for submissions?
Not currently. Amoeba Ink was formed to facilitate collaborations between a group of local authors/artists. However, we've seen the need for good small publishers in the fiction field, so we're working on becoming a company that can support authors outside our group.
How do you approach cover design?
The K.I.S.S. principle. Keep it simple and clean. Cover should be attractive and match contents. For our comic book titles, this means that cover art should reflect interior art.
What's the story behind your latest book?
"The Girl With No Name" was initially written as a serial on Fictionpress by Iscah to introduce characters and the world of "Seventh Night", which is an upcoming fantasy novel. The serial turned out better than expected, so it went through some extra editing and was released first on Kindle and now on Smashwords.
The concept was for a set of four "short" stories about the youths of main characters who meet as adults. The shorts were to be presented in one volume. However, the first two have gotten a bit longer than expected. We're holding off on print editions until we see whether it makes more sense to release them individually or in one volume.
