Why start an electronic publishing company? In Mississippi? A better question is, why not? Mississippi’s literary tradition is arguably second to none. Our list of notable authors, per capita, is on a par with anywhere.
From Albert Taylor Bledsoe, one of Mississippi’s first authors, to Col. Prentiss Ingraham, one of Mississippi’s most prolific authors, with six hundred novels and four hundred novelettes to his credit, the tradition of strong writing and strong story-telling has persisted. Those are the things we hold dear, things we want to propagate in what we do.
William Faulkner, Willie Morris, Eudora Welty, Stephen Ambrose, Shelby Foote, Walker Percy, Ellen Gilchrist, John Grisham, Barry Hannah, Greg Iles, Nevada Barr, Larry Brown, Jimmy Buffett, Curtis Wilkie, and three hundred and twenty other writers of note have called Mississippi home.
Why not Mississippi?
