The Murderers

Everyone knows that a gathering of crows is called a murder, but they're also called a storytelling. As writers, we aim to tell our stories, murdering those errors and fears that hold us back. As publishers, we're looking for voices in genre fiction that often go ignored or are asked to change. Our goal is to always help each become better writers and foster a sense of community.

Joseph Shelton

Joseph Shelton lives among the wolves and snowdrifts of Montana, gathering nuts and berries to survive the winter months.  He spends long nights baying at the moon and scribbling nonsense on the wall of his cave with long, yellowing fingernails.  He can be contacted on Twitter via @jrobertshelton, and he would love to hear from you, as his only friends are three goats that live in the cave with him, and two of them are already dead.
