ideas. And we're going to provide the support writers need to get those books in front of readers."
SVT Publishing will be open to all genres so long as each story is interesting and unique.
Writer Don Smith, who has authored comic books that have been mentioned on national radio and in The New York Times said he jumped at the chance to work with Storm. “I have been a fan of her radio show and we had become friends,” said Smith. “I pitched the idea for my first fictional tale to Crystal and she loved it and we have been hammering out the details since.”
Smith said that Storm has been amazing to work with and he is confident SVT will become a home to his work. “Crystal has been itching for this idea for a long time and I knew my new idea –which is still hush-hush – was the right place,” said Smith.
Noted comic book publisher Darren Davis, president of Bluewater Comics, praised Storm’s endeavor.
"At Bluewater Comics we have found it takes determination and perseverance to be an independent publisher, and Crystal has what it takes," said Davis.
As SVT Publishing gets off the ground, fans and readers can stop by the website and read unique interviews, opinions and blogs to give readers a taste of what they will experience. The first two books from SVT Publishing - The Synarchy Series - are available for purchase, with two more in the series due out before the end of the year.
“This is just an exciting time,” said Storm. “Right now, we just want to get the word out.”
