Occult Moon was probably about the 5th company I tried to create. I’ve wanted to be a small time publisher for a very long time. (I think the first one I tried was about 12 years ago.) So why did this one succeed? A simple suggestion from James ‘Grim’ Desborough of Postmortem Studios. He told me “Why don’t you take a place and give it some background and make a series of them.” He also told my girlfriend to stay on me to make sure I was doing it. I wasn’t. I originally called the product Beneath the Surface or something like that.
I have a real problem with writer’s block, still do. So, I decided to turn the Occult Moon in to a creative outlet where anyone could be a writer or artist and get published. And if I recall correctly Quinn Conklin liked my idea, er, “grim’s” idea a lot. But he didn’t like the name. He took over completely, changed the name of the product and started hammering them out once a week. As I write this we are at 36, without pause. I’m impressed as I would have never thought it would turn out so well. It’s doing so well that we are now doing a Sci-Fi version and more recently a Post-Apocalyptic version of Toys for the Sandbox.
Without Quinn it would have never worked out the way it did, so I thank you, and all the other members of the Occult Moon team.
