Imprints Are Not As Scary As I Thought

Posted on June 24, 2015
Ok. I admit it. The whole idea of creating a "publishing company" for the sole purpose of publishing my own books seemed like a task that required enormous amounts of hair pulling and face rubbing. I mean, I'm already doing all the work, now I just needed to make it "official", so what was the big deal?

The big deal is, now you're dealing with government. I try to avoid all interaction with government agencies whenever possible, so why would I optionally choose to do so? It's almost always complicated, unnecessarily so, and never a good experience. Have you ever called your local IRS office? If you need to, clear your schedule for the rest of the day and be prepared to be utterly annoyed. There may be some phone throwing.

But then, after talking with a lawyer in the family and someone at the county clerk's office, I finally did it. I now introduce my own little humble imprint:

I know what you're thinking. Why not purple? Why a dragonfly? Why not a butterfly?

Well, I love dragonflies and blue is my favorite color. I guess a part of me still wishes I was only 10 years old.

  1. That's seriously gorgeous Tanya. I love it! I actually had no questions as to why not purple or why not a butterfly. There's just something beautiful and simplistic and perfect about what you chose.

    1. That red tape is scary as hell the very first time around. Kind of like the first time you file for income taxes, or get municipal permits for renovations. You read waaay more government rules and regulation than you need to just to make sure you didn't miss anything. Hours wrorth... but, in the end, it's worth your time if only for the peace of mind.

  5. I started my own publishing company, too, and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It's definitely the way to go. Love your imprint!
