I have often talked about what being an editor and publisher means, mostly in terms of the mechanics involved in the job and the prerequisites needed. A good command of English, an understanding of narrative and how stories work, as well as a huge dollop of good old common sense, are absolute necessities, as are organisational skills and a fair amount of business flair. In addition, there’s a need to keep an ear to the ground, listening out for the buzz of excitement generated by new and exciting writers. But there are other aspects to being both an editor and publisher, irrespective of whether you publish literary or genre material. And this equally applies to writers as well.
