Future House Publishing Increases Distribution Power with Workman Publishing

Over the last five years, Future House has grown a lot. We’ve gone from having three books to publishing over 50 titles, including novels in licenses like Mythica and Super Dungeon. We’ve sold books, anthologies, short stories, t-shirts, and even mini figures for a board game. Last fall we partnered up with Familius and began breaking our way into some of the more traditional publishing channels. It’s been awesome to see our books get the attention from bookstores that they’ve been getting on Kickstarter, Amazon, and in schools.  Now we have even bigger news.

Future House Publishing has partnered with Stormcrest Games to produce a book based in the world of Master of Wills, the online and board game sensation.

Substantive Editing

We’ve all been there: reading a good book, minding our own business, when something seems to smack us out of the story.   A gangster gasps and says “goodness!”  The leather-wearing, butt-kicking femme fatale giggles and blushes at a compliment.  “She whirled, her curly hair sticking to her lip gloss.” Wait, that character has curly hair?

What Sets Fantasy Apart from Other Genres and Why Is It So Popular?

When it comes to fiction, everyone has their favorite genres. As the fourth most popular genre behind romance, action, and science fiction, fantasy always tends to fall within the top 5.
