As I’m about to launch my independent publishing career, I thought it made sense to have a name for the business. I wanted something that wasn’t genre specific and also had some personal link.
Coming up with names can be tricky so I went to see my friend Al and after a lively discussion fuelled by red wine and interspersed with furious googling we came up with Gable Press. If your wondering where that came from, well the house I grew up in was called The Gables and it seemed a nice link back to the past. I’ve added a page to my blog which gives a brief introduction (see below) and over time will have details of the books I publish.
The point of this is that it will make the books look more professional, and I’m aiming to produce the most professional product I can.
As for Martin Swinford, I’ll be introducing him in a future blog post. Let’s just say he’s an old friend and distant relative who, by a remarkable coincidence, has some books that need publishing.
