Joe Mynhardt, publisher of Crystal Lake Publishing, stops by to talk about getting started as a small press, focusing on horror and thrillers, and addressing the expansions since.
Crystal Lake specializes in several popular series, Writers on Writing, Horror 101, Horror 201, The Dead Stage, plus the newest series, Shallow Waters, a collected volume of the most popular horror flash fiction stories entered into their monthly challenges. The best entries are then posted to their Patreon page, where patrons can vote for that month’s winner.
Shallow Waters — where nothing stays buried. With twenty-two dark tales diving beneath the surface of loss, love, and life, Shallow Waters is the official monthly flash fiction challenge hosted by the award-winning Crystal Lake Publishing. Every month a new challenge is posted online, with authors submitting via email.
