Something Or Other Publishing is happy to start a new week full of exciting Book Ideas getting closer to publication and the last Short Stories making a final push for qualification in our Annual Short Story Contest!

Our Author-Driven Publishing Model is a unique publishing approach that provides aspiring authors total control of the publication process while learning the critical marketing actions to grow their fan base before publication. As a reader and supporter of these independent talents, you can play a crucial role in our model by approving the potential of a story through a vote, a sign of interest to see the story get published.
