Official Press Release: The Thought Corner introduces "Cozy Cabin Publishing".
Hello one, hello all, this is Manga4life and today I bring some pretty exciting news to friends & readers of The Thought Corner. Last month I sat down and mapped out plans to create my own publishing company, mainly because I love to write but also because I love to read the writings of others and I wanted to involve myself by finding writers who wanted to submit stories that would find readers through both my blog and through print. The first thing I did was write down a few different names that would be a perfect fit for my new company, the problem was that none of the names felt right and I didn't want the company to have a generic name that held no meaning, so I then tried to think about a place where I would feel comfortable to sit down and write for hours on end. I pictured in my head a deep wooded area with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground, nestled within those woods I thought of a classic style log cabin and how cozy it would be to sit down at a small desk and write something to the sound of fire crackling and nothing else. Then shortly after that I pictured a nice spring day in the same wooded setting, within the same cabin I saw myself sitting down at the same desk but this time there was no fire, instead I could hear the sound of a baseball game being called by an elderly man coming through the speaker of an old transitor radio, meanwhile I focused on my piece of writing the window wide open and the sound of birds being heard outdoors. It all clicked and soon after that "Cozy Cabin Publishing" was born.
I've submitted a patent claim to the United States patent office for Cozy Cabin Publishing and I've put aside some capitol for print and other supplies, things have really come to fruition quickly and a Facebook page, Twitter account and official website will be coming in the upcoming months for promotion purposes. Yep, my publishing company is now alive and on top of it all I've found my first piece of talent. Who you ask? Well, a young man named Jason Withstead (Withstead85@yahoo.com) who noticed my previous Twitter posts regarding Cozy Cabin Publishing felt compelled to contact me regarding doing some light publishing, I was delighted and we've spoke on numerous occassions and came up with a few ideas and before you know it he was on board. Jason has sent me a rough draft of a story he has been working on for over 2 years that he is in the process of finishing the final draft, the title of his project is "The Tale", and starting in March some of the book will be published on The Thought Corner blog with the full story being printed and available for sale sometime in July 2011.
Well, that's it for now ladies and gentlemen, hopefully you guys are all as excited as I am about this new venture and I hope you all take the time to check out the blog as well as my twitter every now and again for updates regarding new material and new releases from Cozy Cabin Publishing. Until then, stay on top of your game and enjoy life.
As always I want to thank those who took the time to read my blog, it's much appreciated and you can always check me out at www.twitter.com/manga4life as well as TZ and FUNI.
