Welcome to the exciting new age of publishing where publicity is much more accessible, and where anyone can sell their books to the public. Old methods still work for some, but not for a different set of authors who want their stories associated with others of similar style, purpose, and influence. Anxiety Publishing (AP) promotes real-world stories, where characters behave consistent with their instinct, where the authors have an open-minded view of the world.
But many authors believe in a world that does not exist. Their reality exists mainly on an electronic screen, the artificial world presented to us by Disney and the Murdoch family. To understand the world around us, most of us require experience in it, but most of us experience only small portions of the real world. If we’re not careful, we can have a very limited view of reality. Fortunately, an alternate method of gaining experience exists. Since everything takes place in our imagination, imaginary experiences can be just as potent. Imaginary experiences include games, movies, radio shows, and novels.
Why AP? Humans crave interaction with their peers. We want our own community, often apart from what the universe provided. Entertainment has always been a pivotal component of any community and writers are the backbone of most entertainment forms. Like the familiar analogy of a hot coal, we need collaboration with others to keep burning. Left on our own, we cool and become a black, sterile mass.
How? If you want your novel promoted by AP, then begin the submission process.
When? Always do what you want now, but join the AP effort when your novel is ready for scrutiny.
Who? All endeavors begin with one person, one idea. Authors who publish their works here are AP, whether only one or many. We also promote self-published works.
What? AP rose from the ashes of a quest. After searching in vain for a suitable publishing outlet, a seasoned author decided to create one instead. Other authors with similar interests are welcome to join the struggle.
Insufficient? Good, see the AP note page.
