Today’s the last day before Pitcharama starts and we have Turquoise Morning Press here for our final spotlight.
Tell us what makes Turquoise Morning Press unique.
Even though we are a small press, often referred to as Print On Demand, our size has nothing to do with our output. We house over 150 authors with a 3 1/2 years of weekly published books, novellas and anthologies. We offer our readers a variety of genres which allows our authors to flourish. We are have small town mentality but big city dreams.
What’s on your current wish list?
As a YA Editor, I’m looking for more contemporary stories. Strong heroines and heroes. Problems. Adversity. And a YA must, kissing!
Is there something for you that’s a big query no-no?
Don’t submit unless you’ve read our submission guidelines. It only takes a few minutes and can save both of us a lot of time and heartache. If I’m borderline on your story, not following the directions can take a maybe to a no.
When you read a query, what are you hoping to see?
A creative story. Clean writing. I understand there will always be edits but I don’t want to spend countless nights correcting something that should have been caught when the author was editing theirselves.
What author would you love to publish?
I don’t have a All-Star list. I take each submission and author one-at-a-time. To me, a great story is only better with a great author.
