In that four month period, EGP has exceeded my expectations.
In fact, I wasn't sure EGP would push out even so much as five titles the first year of business.
Now, in fairness, I tend to keep expectations low. It's a childhood trait that has served me well. I'm not often disappointed - generally, I'm pleasantly surprised. That doesn't mean that I don't strive for greatness, I just refrain from putting numbers or measurable goals on projects, and therefore, do not feel let down by the results.
I wanted EGP to do fabulously - and by no means have I slacked off at all... I have given EGP my all, every moment I have is spent buried in EGP work. I can't remember what the world outside of a manuscript looks like currently - but I did not set a numerical goal for EGP other than hoping and striving for the best.
In my opinion, it worked.
- Released a children's picture book, a YA novel from a well-established author (which has remained in the top 20 for YA Time-Travel books in the UK since publication), and an adult science fiction ebook.
- Currently has an adult dark fantasy on pre-order, slated to release in less than two weeks.
- A sequel to the ebook release and a short story anthology are in-progress and planned for EGP's winter catalog.
- Created a General Fiction Imprint to expand reach and accept other genres.
- Slated to release two novels in a series written by an established author in less than two weeks, with the two remaining books in the series in the works for the Gen Fic Imprint's winter catalog.
- Signed and began work on another established author's short story anthology for the Gen Fic Imprint's winter catalog.
