What to Expect in 2015 from Phoenix FIre Publishing

2015 will be an exciting year for Phoenix Fire Publishing. We have new authors, and new arrivals with submissions on a weekly basis and we are always open for submissions whether it be for anthologies, traditional publishing, or self publishing. 

In the beginning Phoenix was mostly know for erotica, then we stirred toward the paranormal, and found our way to poetry. Now, we are opening the doors of horror to some of the greatest of authors.

I want Phoenix to be know for all genres and not just one particular one. If you want sex we have it, you want vampires or werewolves we have it, you want gore and horror, we are working on it. With the first release Crimson Greetings by the talented writer Andre Sanders, has taken us down that road.

We are also releasing work by Mark Slade which will be completely different than anything Phoenix has ever put out. We have Kim Stevens doing her first romance, and yes we are booking and taking submissions for our anthologies. 

This year we wanted to do something different with our anthologies and our writing, I didn't want Phoenix to be the kind of company that makes their authors hold back. As an author myself to have rules restrict your vision kills the book. So, in 2015 write the way you see it. Whether its erotic horror, or paranormal. Write it the way you see it. No holding back.

I want the authors of Phoenix to know that their vision will come to life as they see it as they write it, and some publishers will not allow that. Well, to hell with that. Phoenix is a bit different we welcome all genres, all types, so, if you feel your work doesn't fit anywhere else always feel free to submit. You never know where that submission could lead you.

If you have any questions feel free to email me phoenixfirepublishing@gmail.com or contact us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/PhoenixFirePublishing. 

There is a link to our submissions here for our website. Take a look around, you might just find yourself a home.

Big things are happening this year and Phoenix is ready for them.

Bloody Merry Christmas

With it being Christmas, Phoenix Fire brings you Crimson Greetings by Andre Sanders, a talented horror writer that puts a new spin on the holidays. His book Crimson Greetings is available now. Check out his facebook page for more info and giveaways.

http://www.facebook.com/crimsongreetings




Wrongfully convicted of having sexual relations with his then seventeen-year-old neighbor, Bill Anderson lost his job, friends, wife and daughter. Moreover, he was subjected to experience intense degradation in the Virginia State Penitentiary.
Years later, on a snow-stricken Christmas Eve, Bill embarks on a journey - bound by vengeance and hammer - to reclaim the life he believes society had stolen from him.

Determined to be reunited with his wife and daughter, he unleashes the sinister monster from within, only to share the unforgiving torment bestowed on him by society. Everyone - from the arresting officer turned sheriff, to the family currently occupying his previous residence - is forced to endure an understanding of his suffering. Even the sheriff's pregnant wife finds herself battling for her life against an unknown sadistic memory in her husband's past.

Will Bill Anderson stumble upon his wife and daughter eagerly waiting to start life anew with their devoted husband and caring father?

Or is there a much darker reality amongst society that will infuriate the cold-blooded beast within Bill, and lead him on a reckless path to spread crimson greetings to anyone unfortunate enough to make his acquaintance?
The Christmas spirit has something for everyone, and it's pissed.

News Release March 8th 2014


There are currently many rumors circulating around involving Phoenix Fire Publishing As the Sole Owner and  CEO of the company I wanted to address this issue personally.

Phoenix Fire is like a family. We are not your norm of the mill publishing company. We laugh together, cry together, and are team players when it comes to working together.

We support each other through the good times and the bad. We have a freelance staff that is not contracted to us but does amazing work. Our editors, cover artists, etc, all make Phoenix Fire's books shine through and through.

At Phoenix it is the author that has the final say on their manuscript considering they put their heart and soul into it. As an author myself I would never take that right away from any of them.

I have nothing to hide nor have I ever. I will not stand for myself, my authors, or this company to be cyber bullied and if anyone has any questions or concerns feel free to contact me directly via email at phoenixfirepublishing@gmail.com or at facebook http://www.facebook.com/TabethaRenee

No matter what lies are told at the end of the day myself and my authors know the truth, and we will not allow anyone to stand in the way of our dreams. Phoenix Fire is a family and I intend on keeping it that way.

Guest Post with Jaimie Hope

     Today we are joined with Jaimie Hope who will be addressing the hot topic of cyber bullying. This has become all too familiar in the writing community and unfortunately no one will stick together and fight against it. Cliques can form to start the bullying but cliques cannot be formed to fight the bullies themselves.

     Well, at Phoenix Fire we don't play by those rules. We stand together and if you attack one of us you attack all of us. We are like family at Phoenix and as the owner I will not stand aside and allow my authors or staff to be attacked or bullied for anything. 

     We are all here for the same purpose, to write and allow the readers to drift away to another place for a few hours, int a world we create. For some writing is therapy, and I know from experience. I wrote a poetry collection Tattooed on My Skin about my experience of abusive marriages and addiction, which a certain basher of mine ridiculed me by leaving obviously a false review on amazon because if they had actually read the book they would have known it was poetry and not a novel.

     We at Phoenix understand not everyone is going to love our work but to seek someone out and trash their work and the author themselves for no reason is plain and down right wrong. Jealously can be an ugly monster at times as Jaimie Hope will also explain. I will let her take the floor now.


*** 

Hi everyone, my name is Jaimie Hope. I signed on with Phoenix Fire to release my trilogy, The Sara Rhea Chronicles last month (January), however, Tabetha Jones and I have history together. I was a former Mystic author, but I left the company prior to my book’s release. I was fed many lies about the character of Ms. Jones when it turned the real people with the character flaw were those who were supposedly protecting me. After my eyes opened to the great things going on here at Phoenix Fire I was welcomed back and I couldn’t be more grateful. I am surrounded by the most talented people in the business on a daily basis and I am honored to have them as not only my friends, but also my family.

However, the same people who fed me the lies before are now lying about me. They’re not happy that I have found a publishing home here and in fact, I have since found out they were instrumental in sabotaging my success when I was in another company and then when I went the solo route. This past weekend it all came to a head when I was publicly attacked for a review. Why was I attack for having an opinion? It wasn’t because of a negative review, it was because not only am I an author, I am an editor as well, and I have recently began offering my services to not only Phoenix Fire, but to every author in the Indie community. I wasn’t actively stealing another editor’s clients, as was done to me over a year ago, so there was no reason for the attack. For this reason, my review was labeled as a personal attack against the editor of that book. However, I explained my stance in comments twice and both time the attacker couldn’t come up with an intelligent argument for her opinion that my review was nothing but a personal attack. It was obviously a tactic to discredit me, but anyone who reads my comments will no doubt see that not only was I respectful, but informed and completely accurate.

One point I wish I made on the comments is, yes, reader history does play a role in reviews. I have read many reviews that included comments about the author’s style and whether they stuck with it while writing their current piece, or experimenting with a new style. This gets commented on quite often and not always viewed as positive. The editor of the book in question is actually labeled as the main author, so commenting on her publishing history was very much a valid point. If you have the time, please check out the review and comments it has incited. However, I don’t know how much longer the comments will be visible as I’ve contacted GoodReads and other authorities in this matter, I don’t tolerate cyber bullying and neither should anyone else.

Rest assured the bullies haven’t stopped me at all. Book One of The Sara Rhea Chronicles, The Road That Leads to Home is set to release on June 2nd, I welcome anyone looking for an editor to contact me @ JaimieHope1976@gmail.com, and I also host a weekly internet radio talk show, This Is How I Roll on Monday nights @ 7 pm EST that I hope you’ll check out. Tonight’s guest is Life Coach Rolanda Footman and we will be discussing break ups.
