    Author Advice Blog: Points to Remember as You Begin the Journey to Literary Fame

    Written by: Aisha Tritle Wouldn’t it be great if your book could do all the interviews, signings, parties, podcasts, guest blogs, and newspaper articles…while you stayed at home, drank tea (or beer), and worked on the next book? Oh, well. An author’s job encompasses more than just brainstorming, writing, and editing. You’re the face of your book (aside from the cover, of course). You’re also the voice – not just the voice within the pages, but the public voice. Outside of writing, author life is all about outreach, presentation, and publicity, baby. Below are some points to remember as you embark on your journey to literary fame: 1. There will…

    Advice from the Acquisitions Editor

    Arguably the most stressful part of an author’s professional career is submitting their work to a publisher, be it a short story for a journal or a manuscript for a novel that took years to craft. Putting your writing out there to be judged by others is said to be like laying one’s soul bare to be picked apart. This metaphor is entirely accurate, as authors pour their heart and soul into their work. As an author and an acquisitions editor, I have perspective from both sides of the desk. I hope that these five pieces of advice will help you on your journey as an author, whether you are…

    Kyanite Kiss Goodbye

    As part of our strategic planning for 2019 and based on feedback from our readers and authors, we are reorganizing our imprints. The most substantial change is that the titles we’ve contracted under Kyanite Kiss will be published under Kyanite Publishing. Kyanite Kiss will cease to exist as of this month. We hope this will eliminate any confusion about science fiction and fantasy being our primary genres at this time. All of the stories we publish with romance elements are also science fiction or fantasy, and we are primarily focused on that readership at this time. Please contact info@kyanitepublishing.com if you’d like additional information about our imprints, catalog, and submissions…

The Kyanite Press will remain available for sale directly from Kyanitepublishing.com. We are in the process of creating landing pages for every book in the catalogue! Please bear with us during this process, which we anticipate will take one to two weeks. Here’s the first one: https://kyanitepublishing.com/home/catalogue/ravencrestomnibusone/
