Well, I wrote a really nice post but it disappeared. And, it's getting so late. Just finished reading the Running Man recently - couldn't put the book down, and later learned the author, Bachman, was actually Stephen King.
My son, Chris Morey met Stephen King's son, Joe at a Horror Convention in Utah last year. Chris recently took the helm of a horror, science fiction & fantasy small press which was started by his dad, Joe Morey, back in 1985. It had always been rather a money pit, but the neat thing is that DRP supports writers, artists and book collectors, too.
Chris has been working very very hard, for no pay, to make Dark Regions Press profitable. He's put most of DRP's backstock on e-book format. Also, Chris has started his own imprint, called Black Labyrinth - beautiful collector hardcover books. Chris mentioned once that all it would take to make Dark Regions successful is to publish one great book. We started talking, then, about all the publishers that had turned down Stephen King's first book, Carrie, and how much it had helped the publisher who printed it.
So, a master might find it fun and gratifying to support the small press, maybe with a novel that's been waiting for just the right venue. Even under a pseudonym, if necessary, it'd be a great book. Chris doesn't know I'm writing this, he's my only child, turns 28 this week, and his happiness is mine. Thanks for this forum and please do visit DarkRegions.
