I have been writing, editing, publishing and teaching on/off for the past 10 years. I co-founded this site with James Latish, who is the only person I have ever met who has out-read me. For the record I must say that he has only surpassed me because I lost the use of my right eye about 9 years back in an accident involving WD40, a pomegranate, a drunk baboon and a battalion of riot police. If not for that tragic scavenger hunt, James’ rotting, whiskey soaked corpse would be buried in the wake of my discarded books.
Itinerant philosopher, peripatetic wanderer, insatiable bibliophile – James Latish reads too much, smokes too much, and drinks too much. Words are his comforting lover as well as his blood stained nemesis. He currently lives in New Orleans ( most of the time) and despises writing bio’s with the wrath of Cain.
M. David Hornbuckle
M. David Hornbuckle is the author of two books: Zen, Mississippi and the Salvation of Billy Wayne Carter. He is also the founding editor of the online literary magazine Steel Toe Review and the managing editor of the monthly newspaper Birmingham Free Press. He splits his time between New York City and his hometown of Birmingham, AL. With more than 15 years of editorial experience, he has done freelance work for many major book publishers and national magazines.
Having always been an avid writer, reader and grammar nerd I am now trying to put those skills to use to help others. Much of my time has been spent re-envisioning and running my university’s literary arts magazine and working as a freelance editor/writer. After a year in France teaching English, I’ve come back to the states to pursue what I love- helping writers get by in the somewhat insane and cruel world of modern publishing.
Kendrah has loved books ever since she could hold one. Her career in design started at a very young age with mspaint, which grew into comics about dinosaurs and bad roommates and continued into studying illustration at Umass Dartmouth. Her style is constantly evolving and ranges from the cartoon to real-life. She likes to add a bit of cleverness to her work, and is always looking for a unique perspective to bring to a project. Previous to being an Illustration major she was top of her class in the English department, making book design and publishing ideal for her.
She also runs a handmade bookbinding business called SugarBee Books.

Since getting involved in media production as co-founder of Evolving Media in 2000—the first in many media/arts collectives I helped organize—I have built numerous cross-platform narratives, utilizing the mediums best suited to the task. This has led me to work with emerging media and marketing trends, including podcasting, blogging, and social networking.
