Wentworth and Combs - A publishing journey

Some writer friends (Jeannie, Lisa, Wendy, Dawn and I are starting up a independent publishing house and I'll be documenting our journey here. Right now, we're in the preliminary stages -- I've registered our dba (doing business as) name with the Secretary of State. Jeannie has nailed down the domain name for our website. We're starting to hash out our business plan and talk about forming an LLC (Limited Liability Company).

In the coming days, I'll talk about resources, lawyers, our publishing plan, converting manuscripts to e-files for the Kindle, Nook and iTunes, designing book covers, dealing with POD (Print on Demand) issues, marketing, post-publication and whatever else comes up.

Missed Connections - Part II

We passed in the parking lot, you smiled and said hello.

and another

I wasn't paying attention and walked out into the street.
You hit me. Silver VW Beetle convertible.
I survived.
You were startled. And enchanting and gorgeous.
I need to see you again.

Missed Connections

I got on the train, redline said AIRPORT on it...was going to ride it to the convention ctr but got off at oak and 1st...i stood for a bit then sat next to you....even spoke to you but you seemed less then interested. Shame really , I thought you were devine, beautiful, all of it....I said wow the seats are crowded and you said what? then i guess just shrugged me off....Sorry i bothered you....Just wanted to say you are very handsome.

Gleaned from Craigslist - Missed Connections, it almost reads like poetry.
