Fireborn Mission Statement...
We intend to be the best publisher we can be. We will deal fairly with our authors and our readers, be responsive, and offer the best product we can, at reasonable prices. Fireborn Publishing is a staff-owned business with a cooperative mindset. The collective owners will put the authors first, the growth of the company and reader relationship second, and ourselves last.
Fireborn Publishing Promises...
Fireborn Publishing promises to authors that we will...
1. …be true to the EPIC Code of Conduct for publishers. 2. …pay authors first…always. Owner pay comes out of the budget last. We will not spend money until authors are paid. Period. When the opportunity arises, we will reinvest money in growing the business. 3. …consider all suggestions brought to us seriously, at a monthly meeting between owner staff, whether the suggestions come from authors, editors, or readers. 4. …allow our staff to do what they do best, within their budgets, without micromanagement. 5. …departments support other departments as much as we can. Streamlining the job for everyone lightens the load. 6. …help our authors to promote/market their work to the best of our ability, teach new authors to promote/market themselves, and be available to answer all questions authors have. 7. …write and maintain an ebook for authors, giving answers to commonly-asked questions, and maintain active communication between authors and contacts in the individual departments. 8. ...Maintain PDF copies of royalty reports and book copies online, so authors can download their copies, in perpetuity.
My name is Brannon "Bran" Walker. I'm a
private investigator, hired by Millicent Ashley's father to do a
background check on her fiance, Tom Grant. Then Millie dies under
suspicious circumstances during the engagement party for her and Tom--a
party I attended. Murder? I think so, and I intend to prove it.
Duncan "Dunc" Raines, the lead detective
in the case--and my ex-lover--tells me to keep my nose out of his
investigation. No surprise, I ignore his order--and try to ignore
him--as I begin digging into who might have decided a dead fiancee is
preferable to a living bride. Suspects are numerous, and someone wants
me to stop looking for the murderer, if they have to kill me to make
that happen. As if. I intend to show Dunc that a PI can be just as good
as a cop at uncovering a killer.
