A vision of my office (see long-range goals below)

1) I have to clear out some other work before I give this my full attention. It won’t be long.

2) A second person may take up residence soon to handle some publisher-related duties. 

3) I thought I was ready to take on clients. But I want my publishing house occupied by a few more people first. When I have a dedicated team at least three staff members (names will be published), I will start accepting submissions.

Thank you for visiting the Halcyon House website. I recognize that it still requires improvement. Operations will begin in mid-2023 or when I have a minimum of three-member staff.

Things to Know

All ages of projects are acceptable to me. I have a soft spot in my heart for dyslexic, elderly, and first-time authors.

Voice contributions will be accepted for those who feel uncomfortable sending textual text (details soon). PDF and DOC(X) documents are also considered. Receiving ready-to-publish content from contributors is good for a magazine publisher. I don't want anyone to be discouraged from submitting, though. Whatever stage the author is in, we will work together. 

What I will not publish:
  • manuscripts with extreme bloodshed, profanity, or strong sexual content, as well as those with a supernatural, vampire, or demonic element
  • author examples: Steven King and J. K. Rowling. 
Be guided by the idea of halcyon, which means "calm." 
I'll consider submissions that deal with 
  • happy recollections, serene poetry, haiku, feel-good stories, romances, and other topics.
  • emotional struggle with believable (learned), satisfying resolutions.
  • author examples: Nicholas Sparks.
Long-Range Goals
* There is now only one occupant of the home. But eventually, I want a mansion with lots of rooms and editors, marketers, and agents working there.
