What is Wandering Guide Publishing
Here we were, just chatting about our dreams as we usually do. I was imagining what it would be like to be a big time publisher, or be a New York Times Bestseller. A friend of mine I had made in college was discussing his ambitions to be a director and then I slipped into one of the story ideas I had. I won’t pump myself up by telling you his reaction, but from that early conversation in the Spring of 2016 he asked me what the hell I was waiting for, and after spending some time on the question I realized that I had no idea why I was waiting. Four years have passed, and my focus is still all over the place, but my passion hasn’t subsided.
Wandering Guide Publishing has been a passion nurtured from my childhood as I started drawing pictures of monsters, stapled them together in a booklet and showed them to my mom as a book. I would flip through my drawings and explain what each monster was and what they did. The trouble was I was such a late reader, and really didn’t get the hang of reading until I was twelve years old. Once I did though, I couldn’t stop, and a few years later, finished writing my first novel at 16, and then another the year after. I’ve had the amazing privilege of writing three full-length novels and a screenplay, but I haven’t had the courage to publish them. I thought I’d find the courage in the journey of helping others publish their works, but realized that I had to take the last step for myself before I could convincingly encourage others to take the same leap.
