On occasion, my partner and I find ourselves discussing things outside of the publishing industry. At least, so we think when we first begin these conversations. One such discussion was on the importance of multiple perspectives in any situation, particularly those pertaining to hot item topics that we all spend a lot of money on or that tend to get people 'worked up'. A person can only tell a story from their angle. This shortcoming is through no fault of their own, hopefully, but simply dependent on vantage point. With time our conversation evolved into a brain storming session where we began considering the concept of presenting a 360 degree perspective on various subject matters . Of course we couldn't guarantee every perspective would be addressed, but, we thought we would try. Further discussion lead us to the conclusion that such a project might work out great for individuals that are not quite ready to devote the mental energy, time, money or emotions necessary to write an entire novel. Rather, this allows the opportunity for an author to write a short piece, see their name in print, promote future efforts and 'get their feet wet' for minimal time, cost and energy. A well organized compilation could be quite powerful in conveying a more diverse and larger message! Please look out for our current efforts in this arena and our call for submissions.
