When the members of Placer Gold Writers decided to publish our first book, we debated long and hard how we would accomplish it. A few suggested we attempt the traditional way of publishing: looking for an agent and/or finding an indie publishing house that would be interested in our book. The bolder members through we should self-publish because they had been researching that for their own work. Ultimately, we chose the second path.
Eight months into the three-month project the two members who agreed to be the editors began to realize that if we were going to the depth of education and experience "Through Button Eyes" was taking - why not make it a permanent part of our group? We figured the second and third anthology should be snap after all we learned from the first - and the others agreed.
Therefore, our dream is, after we put "Button Eyes" to bed, we shall immediately begin work on our second in-club anthology, for release in 2017. If book #1 raises any kind of profit, we will use it to fund book #2 and other efforts, such as this website. In the mean time, we will explore incorporating PLACER GOLD WRITERS INK so we can offer publishing opportunities for our members' individual works, produce invitational anthologies and perhaps launch a literary magazine.
The motto for the INK group is, "If you're going to dream - dream big!"
Check back in 2017 to learn about our progress - perhaps you will dream with us!
