Today Gavia Baker-Whitelaw visits Lady Business to tell us more about exciting new publishing enterprise Big Bang Press as they prepare to publicly release their first title. Gavia is Managing Editor of Big Bang Press, a regular fandom reporter for The Daily Dot & maintains the popular costume design blog Hello Tailor. (We suspect she may also have developed cloning technology).

I'm the Managing Editor of Big Bang Press, and my job is to sell original novels by fanfic writers.

Basically, if you've ever read a fanfic and thought, "Holy crap, this writer is better than a lot of published authors," then that's where we come in. Read more... )

Back in October, Jared asked me to write about fanfic and do some recs as one of the special features he runs. Of course, over a month later I finish and I've gone 200% overboard in my excitement and the post has to become a standalone thing because I can't control myself when it comes to recs. I love talking about stories I enjoy, and I always wanted an excuse to highlight that fanfic barely scratches the surface of fandom and also that we're all awesome. Remix and Transformation: An introduction to fanfiction is live and I had a lot of fun writing it and sharing some of the stories I love — I was pleased to include some podfic and vids in there, too. ♥

....I barely restrained myself from having a full on meltdown about Supernatural, though. Ugh, Supernatural, I both hate and love you. :|

Anyway, if there are iconic and/or interesting stories/podfic/vids/art out there you love, please do share them in the comments over there. I thought about 19 things I could've included from unimported delicious bookmark links AFTER I finalized my draft. Curses. /o\

Welcome!

Welcome to Lady Business!

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
