Louisville, Kentucky Based Publisher, Otherworld Publications, Celebrates its First Year and Raises Awareness for Brugada Syndrome.
Local Author and President of Otherworld Publications, Lynn Tincher Calvert, Celebrates the Anniversary of Their First Release on July 1, 2011 and Raises Awareness for Brugada Syndrome and the American Heart Association.
To celebrate its first year, Otherworld Publications is re-launching its novels with giveaways, contests and specials over the next few months. For the months of July and August, Otherworld Publications will donate 10% of all revenue to the American Heart Association to help raise awareness for Brugada Syndrome.
Otherworld Publications opened its doors in 2009 built from a dream by Louisville Author, Lynn Tincher, aka Lynn Calvert. After years of frustration with the publishing industry, several rejection letters, and quite a few headaches, another local publishing company, Blackwyrm Fiction, published Lynn’s first novel, Afterthoughts. Since then, her second novel, Left in the Dark, was released from them and she is currently writing the third, Buried Deep.
Wanting to return the favor, Lynn decided to open the doors to Otherworld as another avenue for authors to get their fiction novels published in this difficult climate and help them get their foot in the door of the publishing industry. On July 1, 2010, Otherworld Publications released its first novel, Transubstantiate by Richard Thomas, a Neo-Noir novel with a Sci-Fi feel. In September of 2010, Lynn was diagnosed with Brugada Syndrome, a rare and fatal genetic heart disease, also known as sudden cardiac death. That did not stop her. After surgery in October to have a defibrillator installed, she forged on to continue Otherworld's plan. To date, Otherworld has released eleven books with many more to come!
Otherworld Publications is a proud member of the following organizations: Professional Member of the Small Publishers Association of North America (SPAN), National Association of Professional Women, Louisville Independent Business Association, Independent Book Publishers Association, and IndieBound.
