Yesterday in this space I wrote of how my wife Robin and I have taken over ownership of the publisher Western Trail Blazer, which had published a lot of my work in recent years, and were issuing a call for submissions -for traditional westerns, western romance, western horror, steampunk, western paranormal, western mystery, and more. You can read that post HERE if you missed it (or just scroll down.)

But there is more. A few months ago we established our own CANE HOLLOW PRESS, of which Western Trail Blazer is now an imprint. We've already received a lot of questions about other genres, so I thought I'd better let you all know what other publishing opportunities we have.

Here are our other imprints. Within each of these we will publish short stories, novellas and full-length books. In most cases the latter will also be made available in print.

This is our "mothership." Here we will offer general fiction and nonfiction as we see fit, sometimes with a more literary bent, as well as poetry.

RAVENFLIGHT PRESS will feature science fiction and fantasy. One example would be THIS NOVEL by my friend David Allen and me:

WINDIGO BOOKS will offer horror fiction. And by horror I mean tales of terror, no sparkly daytime vampires allowed. Like this non-sparkly vampire short story:

CRIMINAL INTENT PRESS will offer tales of crime and mystery. Like stories about my 1950s blues detective Roy Carpenter.

EBENEZER PRESS, as detailed HERE, is an inspirational imprint. Often that will denote a religious/spiritual element, though not always from the same perspectives. In other cases it will involve people's struggles, defeats and victories... as the word "ebenezer" means in a biblical context, "This far I have come with God's help." Our first title is a collection of faith-affirming essays by Pamela Walton:

You'll notice most of these works -so far -are by me (hey, ya gotta start somewhere.) We are looking to grow them all, though, and are thus inviting submissions to . Bear in mind, though- we are a publisher, not a printing service. That means we will accept manuscripts that fit into our vision, and are professionally done.

Please email us if you have any questions, or think you might have something that will fit our needs.
