Wordsmith Wednesday : Announcement

I've been sitting on this for a little while now because I really wanted to share it with someone in person. Now that I've done that and have his blessing and encouragement, I'm super excited to be able to share the news with you!

Some of you may have heard rumors that I'll be splitting away from Alt World Studios. This is true, but I want to assure you it's not for any bad reason. It's because Nick is kicking me out of the nest for my own good. He's been my number one supporter for years and a lot of the steps that I've made are because he's challenged me to do them. This one included.

So, once The Tether: Nevermore is completed and out into the world (soon, I swear!), I will be publishing under Kat Scratch Press, my very own brand! I'm crazy excited and crazy nervous, but I think I'm ready. For my editing clients, if I can ever figure out how to change the company name on my PayPal account, you'll start seeing Kat Scratch Press right away instead of Geek-o-Rama.

What is Kat Scratch Press? Well, I guess I've already covered it. Outside of The Tether Saga and some possible side projects, it is the name that I will be publishing all of my future books under and it is also the name that I will be doing all editing under from now on.

I know that I already said it, but I am super excited about this. This is the next step in the evolution of me and it feels like a really big one. For what feels like forever, I didn't feel as if I could ever accomplish anything and here I am, ready to start this journey as a self-publisher. I want to thank all of you for sticking with me! I'd also like to thank Russell Nohelty for helping me come up with a name, Eric Cockrell for designing my logos, and Nick Davis for knowing what it is that I need usually far earlier than I know, but never pushing me faster than I can handle. It's really good to have someone in my world who cares enough to challenge me. He told me that I could write before anyone else and he continues to tell me whenever I need to hear it.

Before I sign off, I do have to show you one more thing....the logo that you'll be seeing on my books! Squeal!

Isn't that great? I am so in love with both of these logos. Eric took what was in my head, somehow knew what it was and created two wonderful designs. For those that don't know, I lost my cat of 10 years this past fall and I really wanted to represent him in my future because he was probably my number one supporter in his own way. So...a bit of secret info...that kitty in my logo is named Byron after my boy.

Now, I'm off to work on a client's book and I hope you're all off to have an amazing day!
