Alliteration Ink To Focus on Publishing

It's almost a new year, and while the milestone might be arbitrary, it's still useful.

Effective immediately, Alliteration Ink will focus on being a publisher and stop providing publishing services. The difference between the two is explained at

In regular-person speak, that means I'm going to stop doing eBook conversions and distribution for other people. Instead, I will focus on producing original content, including anthologies like What Fates Impose and Steampunk World, single author collections like Wild & Wishful, Dark & Dreaming, and novels like Net Impact.

There are several reasons for this, but the largest and most important is this: I have many things going on, and a limited amount of time left in this world. So I'm going to focus on the things that I want to do.

The second reason is that I've reached a point where wearing multiple hats starts to look like a conflict of interest - even though I've made a bright clear line between the two.

And the third reason is that looking forward over the plans for the next year - including a new anthology with Bryan Thomas Schmidt and Maurice Broaddus, new work from Lucy Snyder, a novel from KW Taylor, and work from Alethea Kontis in the first quarter - I won't be able to do them justice while providing services to others.

If you are looking for eBook design, I would like to recommend Digital Bindery. Not only have I known one of the co-owners for most of my life, but they have high standards and technical expertise.

Thank you for your business in the past, and I hope that we all have publishing success in the future.
