ForbiddenFiction’s 1st Year of Publishing

It was on this date a year ago, Feb. 11, 2012, that we launched our first ebook.

In that time we have published 71 ebook stories (15 novels, 13 novellas, & 43 short stories) and released two anthologies. We have also produced twelve print books (and two more will be ready this month). Check out our full catalog. Our works are not only sold through our site at FantasticFictionPublishing.com, but also at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance Ebooks, and Smashwords.

It’s been exciting, frustrating, scary and hopeful. It’s been an odd, up-and-down trip. We hadn’t imagined that we’d be blessed with so many submissions, and so many wonderful authors. We wouldn’t have stories without you, so thanks for bringing us nearly two million words to share with the readers. We also hadn’t imagined that our computers would be the grouchy and cantankerous beasts they have been, and we thank everyone who’s helped us keep those running as well as they have.

We had our first two interns last summer and fall, both of whom contributed to building our infrastructure as well as day-to-day tasks. We have added four members (see staff bios HERE) to our on-going staff: Siolnatine (Artist & Designer), Kel Draves, (Story Editor & Data Management) Tre Luna (Story Editor) and P.R. Fancier (Story Editor). We’re still looking for the right website developer to work with us and would love to add a promotions lead as well.

Our wish list for the upcoming year includes not only producing at least as much great fiction, but starting serialization and the first audio books. We are working on site rebuilds for both the FFP and this site.

We hope you will join us for more to come!

D.M. Atkins, Publisher, FFP

    I remember when this was an idea you were tossing around. As we slowly assemble the perfect team to take this company to even greater places, it still never would have happened without you. We celebrate the first year of FFP which showed amazing growth for a start-up company, but today I want to also celebrate you. It’s your birthday and you’ve been an incredible friend to me, but you’ve also shown me what it means to work hard and push until those things you dream about become a reality. You always amaze me.

    Though I may be quiet on the writing front and unable to finish anything publishable, I look forward to a year even better than the first! Congratulations, Forbidden – you deserve it!
