Fans and friends, Facebook told me today that those of you who currently follow Madness Heart Press on Facebook haven’t heard from me in a while, and that’s true, I haven’t made an update or written a new story for the blog in quiet some time.
In November I shifted gears, after long talks with Desiree, we decided the greatest thing we could do would be to turn our eyes away from self-promotion and towards the promotion of others. If was a tenant taught to me in my time in the food industry, never seek to take over, instead grow the market. Isn’t that a nice sounding buzzphrase? But it’s accurate, the best way to grow, is to make sure there is room to do it.
By starting our own Digital Publishing house, we could give far more writers a chance to be seen and read. We could comb through the stories that we love and share them with the world. Instead of asking others to pay me for my stories, we could make our living helping promote others.
We have an amazing 2019 planned. We have two books of poetry and an anthology primed and ready to drop in the first quarter alone. With an second anthology and a novel in the works for the second quarter. We are going to grow quickly. We are going to print amazing stories that bring joy (and fear) to our readers.
But we do need help. I want to thank all of our readers and fans from the bottom of my heart, and ask for more. We want to grow organically as much as possible. If you are reading this, invite your friends and family to like our Facebook page. If you don’t like us on Facebook yet, join us. Word of mouth isn’t our only method of promotion, but it is the most powerful one we have.
Thank you so much for your support, I can’t wait to terrify you in the coming year.
