Welcome to the Halcyon House website. It's a work in progress.  I expect to open at the beginning of January 2023. Payment options will include paying in full or half to start and the rest on completion.

Things to Know

I will consider projects of all ages. I have a heart for those who are dyslexic, elderly and first-time authors. 

I will accept pdf and .doc documents AND audio submissions for those who are uncomfortable submitting written words. As a magazine publisher, receiving ready-to-publish manuscripts from contributors is nice. But I don't want that to deter someone from submitting. I will work with the author at whatever stage they are at. More on that soon.

What I will not publish:
  • manuscripts with excessive violence and expletives, 
  • explicit sexual content, 
  • paranormal, vampire, or demonic themes
  • Author examples: Steven King or J. K. Rowling. 
Let the word halcyon (peaceful) be your guide. I will consider submissions dealing with the following: 
  • beautiful memories, 
  • peaceful poems, haikus, 
  • feel-good stories, romances, and such. 
  • emotional conflict leading to trusted (learned), happy endings.
  • Author examples: Nicholas Sparks.
Long-Range Goals
* At the moment, there's only one living in the house. I aim to have a mansion with many rooms staffed with editors, marketers, and agents.
