I’m a self publisher. My book, Dirty Little Secrets came out September 2016 and my new novel, Little Idiots, has just been released. One thing I’ve always striven to do is make certain my books are as professional as possible, and that I’m not skipping any steps that a storefront publishing company would use. I read a lot of other self published authors, because you can often find some real gems out there, but what I’ve found is that so many of them skip those steps. You only write one draft? You had your four year old create your cover design? You don’t need no steenking editor?

A release date has been announced for Christopher Minori’s Dirty Little Secrets anthology. It’s scheduled for September 4th, 2016. Initially, it will be available on Amazon with both Kindle and softcover editions, with additional retail availability to be announced later.

Minori has said he plans to pre-release several stories from the book before its September debut.

“I’m going to publish at least two or three stories before the book comes out. Fans of my play, The Texas Chainsaw Musical!, know exactly what they’re getting with my writing. But for people who are new to my work, this is a chance to see what I’m about, discover my writing style, and generally question my life choices.
