I've never been the sort to "New Year, New Me", but change is upon us and I'm excited to announce some happenings coming to Quill & Crow!
I'd like to first thank everyone for supporting me through the launch of The Ancient Ones and for all the support as I released my poetry book, Rise of the Dark Goddess. The success of these ventures has led me to the decision to follow my dream and expand my publishing house.
I started Quill & Crow Publishing House as a tentative experiment to see if I fit in the publishing world. It was the result of a growing frustration with gatekeeping practices and my disappointment in the shift to marketability at the expense of traditional and/or explorative literature. I love words, I love books, I love stories - and I would like to do my part in protecting their integrity. I have stood by and observed some amazing, talented individuals who don’t fit under the commercial umbrella, and I would like to lift them up and maintain a professional standard for independently published literature.
Ambitious? Perhaps. But if you read The Ancient Ones, then you know I don't shy away from anything that seems like a big undertaking. It actually gets me going.
So what’s in store for Quill & Crow 2021? More dark poetry, macabre anthologies, horrific tales, and of course… The Ancient Ones, Book II. And shhhh - you didn't hear it from me, but there MIGHT just be a new author coming to Quill & Crow with a ridiculously amazing poetry book debut... but that's how rumors get started. I would just like to drench the world in delicious gothicness, okay?
