Well, you may have missed it because the comment was on an older post, [The Making of a Cover (Part 2)] but an author stopped by on Monday. Here's what he said:
Hi J.R. this is author Scott Appleton. I've seen your comments on my blog and this is my third visit to your site. I own the publishing company Flaming Pen Press and I am most intrigued by your work. Next year my company will grow to publish one other author. I am not promising acceptance, but I like your cover and the sample I read of your story. Flaming Pen Press is only accepting submissions by invitation. I would like to extend an invitation to you to contact me via email. My publishing house is small, but we hold high standards for the writing and art. Anyway, the invitation is there if you are interested.
Scott Appleton is the author of the fantasy book Swords of the Six, which is available to buy now. From the teaser and reviews it sounds like a good book which I plan on reading as soon as I recover from my upcoming car insurance payment. I encourage you to check out his website and find out more about his book at flamingpen.blogspot.com.
I sent him an e-mail saying I hadn't yet explored my publishing options but would send him what he needed in order for him to get a better idea as to whether or not The Shepherd is something he might be willing to publish. He's going to let me know what to send here in the coming days.
