About Queen of Swords Press:
Queen of Swords is an independent small press specializing in swashbuckling tales of derring-do, bold new adventures in time and space, mysterious stories of the occult and arcane and fantastical tales of people and lands far and near. What does that actually mean? It means we like all of the following: swashbuckling tales with female protagonists, people from wide-ranging cultural and racial backgrounds having adventures in outer space, LGBT and/or Q characters engaged in magic and swordplay and historically-flavored stories that reflect diverse casts of characters doing interesting things.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Fantasy, graphic novels, history, biographies, horror, science fiction, mysteries - you name it. For relaxation, I really like fantasies, graphic novels and mysteries, but it really depends on my mood and what else is going on. I love discovering new writers as well as rereading old favorites.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I have found that has varied from book to book. For print books, in person events like book release parties and author readings have been most effective. For ebooks, it's been a mix. Interviews, guest blog posts, podcasts - anything that builds word of mouth is generally helpful.
