I’ve been working on this project with C.L. Alden and C.H. Duryea along with the members of the New England Speculative Writers since last year. We weren’t exactly sure what we were doing at first, but when we put out the open call and saw how much amazing writing was being produced by New England based authors, we realized we needed to showcase their work. It has been an amazing opportunity to work alongside these authors and watch their process. It’s been a positive influence on my own writing and currently I’m grinding away in the last book of my current superhero series. So I’ve taken a bold step in my writing career, from author to publisher. Writing will always be my focus and I have more stories to tell than time, but it feels good to be working with such a talented group of individuals!
