Edward Allen Publishing, LLC, was formed in 2012 by a husband and wife writing team in response to years of fighting the politically correct tunnel vision and tightly controlled rules of the traditional publishing industry. They dreamed of a publisher that threw away the rules, that focused on good stories and real characters, and that understood that readers are smart, curious people who aren’t afraid to experience all the worlds writers can create. Deciding to turn those dreams to reality, they put their 20 years of storytelling experience, as well as their skills in the business world, to use. With their son, also an avid reader and business professional, they formed a small company to publish selected works of commercial fiction and non-fiction, where fresh ideas and true-to-life characters ruled.

When I first started writing fiction, I happened upon a writing tutorial that admonished to never, never, never start a sentence with an “ing” word. That bugged me, since one of my big rules is to mix up sentence structure. So I started to pay attention to what “the greats” did, and I found that[…]
Have you ever puzzled over the definition of a part of speech? I have. It seems the farther I get from Mrs. Schilling’s 7th grade English class, the more foreign phrases like “split infinitive” become. So every once in a while we’ll tackle those funny-sounding parts of speech…just to keep you (and me!) on our[…]
Happy Monday, writers! This week we’re going to take a look at character development. Why? My husband and I watched a “new” movie (meaning we had to pay to rent) over the weekend, and we also started a “new” series on Netflix (meaning everyone else has watched it for years and we’re just discovering it),[…]
The other day I was reading and found myself skimming more than I’d like. Then I did it. I fell asleep. Not good. I enjoyed the characters, and the story line was intriguing. But nothing was compelling me to turn the pages to see what would happen next. So what was wrong? A lack of[…]
Have you noticed the increasingly common misuse of the poor apostrophe? No? Well, I have, and it’s driving me crazy. I first wrote about this more than two and a half years ago. Back then I had hoped that some gentle urging would help writers to see the error in their ways, and that we’d[…]
It’s Craft Monday, and we’re reposting an oldie but a goodie from author/editor Alicia Dean. Alicia tackles the often confusing world of misplaced and dangling modifiers. ___________________________ Writing this blog post, my phone rang. A man selling cemetery plots with a husky voice was calling. Okay, neither of those happened. But I thought they would[…]

As she wanders around, noticing odd tools and detritus of the lives of the former occupants—a Depression-era farmer and his young, city-bred wife—her imagination takes flight. Or[…]
