Good Experience With Publishing



I have a story coming out in e-book format reeeeeal soon now from Darwin's Evolutions. Big T is a science fiction novelette and it'll be the first in a release cycle to be followed by "The Year of the Mountain Lion" by Maria Schneider (fantasy) and "The Bight" by Al Sirois. More stories will follow, and eventually (September?) the stories will be collected into an anthology.

DE isn't a big ol' established publisher with an unlimitless budget. Nevertheless, since I received the contract I've had nothing but positive experiences with this publisher. Editor Darwin Garrison has commissioned some fine artwork for the stories, done a good job of editing the story, set up book covers and a hundred other things.

Just as important, Darwin has also done a great deal to improve social networking among the writers and artists contributing to DE. This has resulted in an exploding inbox the past week or so, but all with good suggestions and comments from fellow contributors. I've also met more than a couple of interesting people this way, and I hope to see more of them online and perhaps even IRL. Interesting times!

All in all it's been a very good experience to work with Darwin's Evolutions, so I hereby recommend it as a possible story market.

Does anybody here have similar good experiences with publishers? Feel free to share your recommendations in the comments :-)

for Darwin's Evolutions. I think I've extolled the love I have for my small press publisher quite enough, though!

I seriously believe that a good job done should be appreciated, hence the post. And your own story about Hadley Riley is a good example of how cooperation can create wonders in publishing.
