The Official Blog of Author Tristan Vick
As it turns out, I have become an official Micro Publisher. What this means is that I publish a limited amount of titles and usually in small quantities (e.g. print on demand) on a regular basis.
I marked my Micro Publishing debut with my first full length novel Bitten : A Resurrection Thriller a little over a year ago. About half a year later I came out with the second installment Bitten 2 Land of the Rising Dead.
Today I received my first ever fully edited book anthology Seasons of Freethought which republishes the Freethought works of G.W. Foote. If you don't know who he is, well, look him up on Wiki. Or get a copy of my book--no pressure to buy--but little is available away in details of Foote's existence apart from the writings he left behind. Which is why I felt it important to preserve them by giving them a new life, a new Season, if you will.
Admittedly, I am really proud of this one because I did everything myself. Not only did the 756 page monster turn out well, I managed to do everything. And by everything, I mean everything apart fromn the writing (which was Foote's work). However, I handled everything from editing, to formatting, to book blocking, to styles, to writing the introduction, to doing headers and footers, page numbering, you name it. I am glad that I was able to bring back G.W. Foote's Freethought writing and also give it a gorgeous new presentation. Take a look for yourself and see!
So now I am an official publisher, even as I remain independent. Good times. I learned a lot this time around and I hope to continue bringing high quality collections of other important works in the future. If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear them!
By day I am an educator and a cultural ambassador. By night I entertain notions of being a literary master. In reality I am just a family man and ordinary guy who works hard and loves writing just about as much as I love my family. Just about.
