who we are...
Who’s publishing? Well, me. I’m Kit St. Germain. I’m a writer/actor and and I live in Vancouver B.C. I'm the company goat in this endeavour, and I am ably aided and abbeted by Clelie Rich(Editor) and Maryke Hendrikse (P.R. Poo-bah).
I like to think of us as the Certifiable leading the Capable and the Genial.
In 2002, I self-published a novel. It was a real learning curve. One thing it taught me was that I wasn’t the genius I thought I was, and that I had to find out what the real world rules were, because everyone else was playing by them.
Shortly after the book, I joined the writing group, Helix, and I’ve been there since. Not to put too fine a point on it, the ladies beat me up but-good, and I know I’m a far better writer for it. As I told the folks at Strange Horizons, these girls are so pithy they are practically an orange. I know, I know, I should have been in a writer’s group for five years and then written a novel. Yes, yes, we’re all sooo clever five years from now.
So here we are. I thought: Any idiot can renovate their kitchen. It takes god’s own egg-splattered fools to make books. So that’s what we’ (I) did. The main reason I want to do this, is that I am surrounded by utterly extraordinary people- writers, actors, artists-- and there are so many more I have met in the ethers. I want to establish the mother of all geeky kitchen parties and bonk a cover on it. Until the money runs out.
