I created Camroc Press to publish Crack and Thump in 2007 because I didn't think Charlie would live to see it in print if I lolly-gagged.
A producer for WWII in HD saw it on Amazon and I sold them the TV rights. Charlie had a ball with it, talked about it on local shows, got invited to NYC to present at the UN and would never take a dime of royalties. Sales continue and total mid-5 figures.
I used about $15K of the sales paying writers who submitted to Camroc Press Review, which ran for 7 years.
So you never know. I've had a great time with it, probably the most gratifying thing I've ever done.
Now I read and write flash fiction...
