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.
