Get to Know Your Crew – Philip E. Carroll

Today’s crew mate is Philip E. Carroll aka Norval Joe. We’re not quite sure where he got that moniker, but it’s somehow fitting. A regular contributor to Great Hites, Philip may just be one of the most prolific writers on the crew, even though he hasn’t been actively writing short stories for that long. An […]

Inspirational Authors – Mur Lafferty

I’m from North by gawd Carolina and there is a TON of podcasting talent here. Most of it seems to exist in and around the Raleigh area and one such podcaster is the subject of today’s inspirational authors post. Mur Laffertry is not only a podcaster, she’s got quite a few fiction and non-fiction credits […]

Get to Know Your Crew – J-P Losier

Today the crew member that we’re saluting goes by the name J-P Losier (We’re 65% sure that that’s an alias and 43.6% percent sure that it’s his birth name… What, we’re pirates, not math guys.) You can usually find him up in the crows nest or on the island’s highest peak. When he’s not in […]

Valerie’s work […]

Status Report

We’re working hard to get things ready for the first issue.  The mock up hit my inbox yesterday and my response to our in house layout man was, “I’ve got chilllllls they’re multiplyin’. ”.  This is very much starting to feel real. We’ve gotten a number of stories in.  Some have worked for us and […]

Some Invalubale Resources

Most of us artistic types, I think it’s fair to say, don’t fully understand things like contracts and anything else that has to do with the business side of the house.  Thankfully there are some people who can help you with that and we’d like to point you in the right direction. First you need […]
