It's been a few years and although it was always my intention to return as soon as the market worked itself out, that never really happened. But, there are stories that still need telling and authors that I've missed working with and when the opportunity came along to work with Brain P. Easton on Legends of the Werewolf Hunter, there really wasn't any question that it was time come back.
Old Business: There were a number of projects in various stages of completion when I boarded up the press years ago. At that time, I returned the rights to all of those stories to the authors and wished everyone the best in placing them - those stories deserve to be read.
Those projects will not be resurrected, The past is the past and the world has changed far too much to try and return to old business models.
The future is about new opportunities and ways of doing things and to that end, there will be future Legends of the Monster Hunter anthologies, and I expect to announce an open call for the first of these after the holidays, so stay tuned.
I will folding the directory concept into the books as well. There are so many new outlets looking for content these days for streaming, animation and gaming content, and with the stories I see being printed now, its obvious they need help and that means they need to come to the experts. That's us! I'll be talking about this more in a future video update, but you can see the basic idea in the link above.
It feels good to be back on the trail and I'm looking forward to reconnecting with everyone.
Until then, good writing and happy hunting!
