Hearts Desire Press

Just in case any of you are wondering where I’ve gone, or what I’m up to these days I can finally tell you! As my dream of working in the world of publishing continues to evolve, to that end I’m opening my own publishing company.

You can find it here:

Hearts Desire Press

Yes, we’re the new kid in this crazy ever-changing publishing world. And we’re a bit different. I wouldn’t go so far as to call us a hybrid, but I see our place in an author’s endeavor to build a writing career as one smoothly functioning part of a whole. Not the be-all-end-all goal of career building.

These days the smart, career focused author will have their eggs in many baskets, traditional publication, small press, and indie. I applaud that, and believe it’s entirely appropriate.

If as an author you find you like what we do at HDP, you’re welcome to publish with us for as little or as long as you like, but we understand that these days it takes more than one publishing experience to build a solid writing career.

Those of you who know me, know I’ve been self-employed for a long time. HDP isn’t my first trip around the business block. I know how hard you must to work to build success. And I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than work with those in the publishing world. So if you’re an editor, an author, or a marketing professional I’d appreciate it if you’d consider working with Hearts Desire Press in the future.
