Publisher Interview: Heather Savage

Staccato Publishing and digital imprint, Darkest Night Publishing are the companies of author and publisher Heather (HK) Savage. Heather comes from a decade of editing and marketing experience as well as a stint in insurance working with contracts and negotiating settlements with attorneys. “Staccato Publishing officially opened its doors March of 2011 with two authors. We now have six authors with an epidemic of 4 and 5 star reviews from large and small industry reviewers and several titles now on the shelf at local indie bookstores and large retail chains such as Barnes & Noble,” she says.

Last year she put out eight books (three digitally, five traditionally) in the Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, and Mystery genres. “Some titles are YA and some adult. We are due to release between six and eight in 2013 in those same categories. Digital releases require less lead time and therefore can be prepared more quickly.

Publisher Interview:
Little Acorns Publishing

Kristina Jackson is the CEO and Queen Bee of Little Acorns Publishing Ltd. (LAP) She says, “While we have our grounding in a mix of paperback and eBook publishing, we are working towards more individually tailored marketing packages to give our authors best advantage. We also believe each author is an individual, working to ensure the contract meets their requirements as well as having flexible timescales.”

Kristina established Little Acorns Publishing in May of 2012, but her company is already making good progress. “We have five paperback titles and seven eBook titles this year. Next year sees the increase of this to a further eleven titles.”

LAP covers a broad range of genres, but is not interested in Zombies or books which contain excessive use of profanity or violence.

Because Kristina works with her authors to develop individual marketing strategy plans, she says it can be up to six months between having a book accepted and going to publication.

She says, “Most of all we are friendly and approachable. Please feel free to chat things through with us.” Continue reading “Publisher Interview:
