Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published more than a dozen books, including several short story anthologies and debut novels by several AQC authors including "ScubaSteve" Carman and R.S. Mellette. Midway through 2018, we've already published our first nonfiction title, "Which the Days Never Know," and are putting together an omnibus collection of the Seasons Series of anthologies, with launch expected by the Christmas season. And in 2019, there will be much more, with news to come soon!

This article by a reporter whose sister ran in Monday's Boston Marathon probably doesn't really fit with what we do here, even in the nonfiction area. I mean, most of us are not trying to post investigative or on-the-scene reportage. But the lessons about interacting with people via Twitter and writing about personal tragedy can help in a variety of nonfiction contexts.

 

Do these guidelines for Twitter activity, etc., coincide with your experiences?
