What do you like about writing and publishing?
I love writing and reading stories. I have an entrepreneur side to me that likes owning my own business. Indie publishing today allows one to wear both hats within a reasonable budget.
What do you like about your authors?
I like an author who has an edge and who breaks with convention. I have a quirky side to me and I look for that in authors. I look for authors who say the things I can't say.
