Tell-Tale Publishing

Publisher info

Elizabeth Fortin, CEO of TT Pub is a retiree whose nickname Doc followed her into said retirement. Now, like most retirees, she is busier than ever. She has been involved in one aspect or another with the publishing industry for nearly 30 years. Once she retired she was finally able to do what she loves most, write fiction and help others with their writing careers.

She often writes blog articles around branding and other writing business issues of value to both new and seasoned writers.

When not writing, she can be found on her back porch with her personal editor, Hudson, (AKA Maltese), and her Irish hubby, Kenton, sipping a yummy summer concoction while watching the Sonora Desert wildlife around her small pond and waterfall, or reading as the sun rises above her beloved Santa Catalina Mountain Range.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
We always have something "next" here at TT Pub. We receive literally dozens of submissions on a daily basis, so just wading through the slush pile is a focus-steady activity. Of serious interest though is adding "Smashwords" to our venue lineup. We believe it will add another layer of networking and reader-reach for our authors.
Who are your favorite authors?
All the Tell-Tale Publishing authors, of course. Then we reach back to such classics as those written by the Bronte Sisters, Dickens, Yeats, Joyce, Poe, Shakespeare, Williams, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Shelly, Stoker, Tolkien, Hawthorne, Asimov, and...this could go on forever, but you get the idea.
