To be the renegade publishing press that your mother warned you about.
Disasterpiece. Where does a word with an amalgamation of such positive and negative connotations come from? My best guess? Buried deep within my imagination. When was the word planted there and when did the seed start to sprout? Hard to tell. Time is a fuzzy thing like the classic dice underneath the rearview mirror.
The real question is: What do I want this to grow into? A haven for authors with imaginations as vibrant and overwhelming as mine. An imprint that tells the stories that might be a step or two off of the beaten path. A publishing press that battles against the tides of the tomorrow with the spirit of past literary rebels and revolutionaries churning the engine of heart.
"Come along. La Mer, she is cool to the flesh, but once you wade in a spell, you’ll find she is very inviting. Let the tides take you where they will."
