I guess it could be considered a publishing company, but I`ve always taken that to mean that I would have to provide the printing for the customer, which isn`t what I would to persay.
I intend to provide the customer(in this case writers who want to enter into the fantasy-fiction relm ) with a platform of sorts to get started in the writing world. I intend to provide connections to printers, editors, opinions and such(im not really sure what else you need in the pre-release department) but also I intend to provide a framework to get started by offering a fictional world that myself and several others would create.
Thats the general gist of it.
Edit: I should also mention that I`m just learning about copywriting and trademarking, but I am slightly concerned with releasing matetral that hasent been properly protected. For example, I have a prolog to one of the books I intend to use and have read that you can use a porton of the book to get the book copywriten(as long as it gives the intelectual ideas of the book), but now I wonder will that cover only the book, or the character places and people in the book etc. I have tried going on the gov. sites that issue the copywrite papers and such as well as some book pertaining to the legal issues, but I dunt wanna form my own opinions and be wrong. Are there any books that would be sugested, including some in the For dummys range.
