I’m in business!
One of the recommendations for self-published authors is to create a business front to do all their publishing through. So I did just that.
Well, alright. I didn’t do *just* that.
Stoneword Press is an offshoot of a larger business: Tree City Media. Take the word larger with a grain of salt, since we’re a two-girl operation with big plans for the future. Christy, my business partner, is a marketing genius who has experience driving home sales. Me? I’m the tech support.
Now I know pretty much nothing about business, and I’ve discovered my natural mindset isn’t conducive toward making money. I use hard work to produce quality results. Christy is one of those people who knows how to work smarter, not harder. I may never catch on, but that’s why she’s the one bringing in the clients.
That’s right. Clients.
Christy is ambitious. Within the past year, she has gone from non-writing book reviewer to published author in local magazines, as well as becoming a board member of the local writer’s guild, and this year’s NaNo ML. Through her many connections, she’s discovered that several people have a need for services such as marketing, editing, formatting (that’s where I come in), and publishing.
She’s got a big plan–bigger than I had ever intended for myself. But I’m confident that where Christy is involved, things will succeed. It’s her specialty.
I need help deciding on a logo for Stoneword Press. I hadn’t really been thinking logo when I settled on the name, and have found the actual creation of one has been difficult. So give me your input! Which one do you like? And if you don’t like any, do you have suggestions as to what would make it great?
