Special Announcement!

Hey, SE Readers! Last week, I promised we had a special announcement to make. Today is the day!

Story Empire began with five authors in August 2016. Over the years, there have been several changes as some authors left and new ones joined. Last year, we expanded to eleven contributors. This year, we’re growing again!

Drum roll, please!

I’d like to welcome our newest member. We are over the moon excited that Stephen Geez has agreed to join Story Empire. I know he’ll add new depth to this group and provide sage advice on writing, marketing, and more.

Stephen is a retired TV producer and composer/producer of music for television. He’s now mellowed into the lake-side living of a writer, editor, graphic artist, and Fresh Ink Group publisher. His work includes novels, short fiction, personal-experience essays, blogs, Geez Writer, how-to materials for authors, podcasts, video scripts, marketing content, and more.

Whew! Sounds like a busy “retirement,” wouldn’t you say? The Story Empire authors are delighted Stephen has joined us. His first Story Empire post will be Monday, January 16. In the meantime, you can learn more about him at his website.

I also want to take a moment to thank all our readers. You are the reason we are here, and without you, we couldn’t do this. We appreciate all your comments and visits. Our goal is to provide quality content that will assist authors with writing, marketing, and publishing.

On behalf of all the Story Empire authors, welcome aboard, Stephen!

  3. Welcome news, Joan. I’ll also welcome Stephen to this remarkable blog. I read his Comes this Time to Float last year and the broad range of genres plus his lyrical prose made quite an impression on me! 🙂
