An announcement regarding Clockwork Phoenix and The Journey to Kailash

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *
I just want to let everyone know that Vera Nazarian has graciously handed all my former Norilana Books titles back to me.

This means that, under the Mythic Delirium Books imprint, I'm now the publisher as well as the author and/or editor of my poetry collection The Journey to Kailash and the anthologies Clockwork Phoenix: Tales of Beauty and Strangeness, Clockwork Phoenix 2: More Tales of Beauty and Strangeness, and Clockwork Phoenix 3: New Tales of Beauty and Strangeness.

All proceeds from sales now go to me and I'll be the one paying the royalties to the anthology contributors.

I want to thank Vera for everything she did to make these books possible in the first place.

If there's any advice or help you need with the biz, just ask away.

I'll keep that in mind. It does seem to follow that when one is suddenly a POD publisher, one must consider the possibility of bringing out other books, no?

Well you do have all of these ISBN's that you bought. I usually find new works by asking the writers that I worked with if they have anything they want to publish. That way I don't have to read slush.

Also make sure to get the titles on Kindle. I make at least twice as much money on Kindle as I do on the POD.

I actually haven't purchased any yet. The Norilana ISBNs for my books are now my ISBNs.

Just need, oh, about $4,000 to spend? But these days there are ways.

I have a compulsive tendency to pledge on Kickstarter! I'm just sayin'.

Excellent. Those are some truly excellent anthologies you created. It's great that Vera put them out; it's great that now you have control of them. All good.

I would kick in to a kickstarter for new Clockwork Phoenix Anthos. You did a good job with them, even if I didn't make the cut. :D

Apparently Kickstarter works best if you have a video to go with it.

I am so happy for you, Mike! :-)

And of course all the Norilana back royalties will be paid as soon as I get my income back on track after the hell of the last 5 years...
