It’s been a long time in the works, but we’re finally getting our blog up and running.
My name is Craig Gabrysch, and I’m one half of the partnership that runs Twit Publishing, a small independent publishing company out of Dallas, Texas. My brother, Chris Gabrysch is the other half. He edits the Twit Publishing Presents: PULP! series. You’ll be hearing from him a little later, I’m sure.
Whenever you set up a blog, you have to consider what it’s going to be about. Will it cover sports, news, media, etc? It’s similar to any narrative you write, in that if you don’t keep a “theme” in mind, the message becomes muddled and difficult to follow or understand. To that end, we’ve decided we’ll be keeping to two different ideas:
- The Company. Us, the writers, the nuts and bolts of editing and layout. All the stuff that goes into creating a great piece of well-packaged fiction. Also, the joys, terrors, and confusion of running your own small business. That’s right, you get to read about how absurd it is to run a publishing company in today’s climate. Chris will also be weighing in on the equal absurdity of editing: how do you select a story, the vagaries of the English language, story structuring.
- The Industry, and our thoughts on it. Publishing is going through one of the biggest upheavals since the codification of the original copyright laws. It’s an exciting, scary time, with so many things up in the air. And we’ll give you our thoughts on it.
We’re trying to keep to a schedule of at least a post a week, so check back frequently.
