Announcing: Kyanite Publishing & New Book “What They Deserve”

I have never been more excited to sit down and write an update in my entire life.

Today, July 11th, 2018, I am so proud to announce the formation of Kyanite Publishing LLC alongside my partners, B.K. Bass and Sophia LeRoux. Kyanite is an author-owned, independent publisher of speculative fiction and horror seeking to connect authors and readers like never before.

We’ve each been building to this moment for what feels like our entire lives, and we are so grateful for the chance to help other authors put their stories out into the world (along with our own).

My titles, Marketing Director of Kyanite Publishing and Managing Editor of Kyanite Glass (a digital imprint), reflect my natural relationship building abilities, optimism, vision, and commitment to financial solvency. B.K. will be working as the Director of Acquisitions and Editor in Chief of The Kyanite Press, our bimonthly literary magazine, and Sophia will be working as the Director of Design and Operations and Managing Editor of Kyanite Kiss, our romance imprint.

My other title, my first book!, “What They Deserve,” is coming at you in November 2018! I can’t wait to hear what you think about the cover design and concept. I’m finishing it right now and it’s intense!

In the first quarter of 2019, I’ll be bringing you, “The Assimilation Agent,” the first novel in a trilogy about alien genetic experiments. I’ve been building it in my mind for five years and getting it out on paper has been cathartic and emboldening in more ways than one.

Many of you have been supporting Peak Story Reviews over the past two months and I am humbled by your patronage, as are the authors of the stories we’ve been reviewing. We haven’t released much content there because of the publishing launch, but we’ll be getting back on a regular schedule soon!

If you made it to the end of this, thank you!
