Long-time staffer Brian James Freeman here. Today marks my final day working full-time for CD, the only workplace I’ve known since graduating college nearly 20 years ago. I’ve loved getting to know our amazing collectors, authors, artists, designers, booksellers, and vendors over the years. Working with Rich, Mindy, Norman, Dan, and everyone else has been an absolutely incredible experience.
My new job is something I honestly never thought would be possible: writing short stories for a living! If you know this business, you know that was a pretty insane dream to have. After all, when was the last time writers could earn enough from their short stories to pay their bills?
But thanks to some dedicated supporters of my Patreon, I have the opportunity to do just that, and I can’t wait to see where this new adventure takes me. (Of course, because creating small press special editions really is a ton of fun, I will continue publishing a few of my friends over at my own press, Lividian Publications.)
Here are a few links for anyone who wants to follow along with what comes next:
Thank you again to everyone I’ve met along the way. And thank you, as always, for your continued support and enthusiasm!
