RP Andrews

RP Andrews spent most of his life and career in New York City as a public relations executive before relocating to Fort Lauderdale where he taught writing on the university level. "Basic Butch," his first book originally published in the spring of 2008, is a collection of edgy short stories set in some of America's leading gay venues with characters - gay men and women - whose arrogant, aggressive natures lead them down life paths they wished they had never explored. His second work, "Adrift in The Land of Plenty" published in 2009, is a novella that tells the story of a young psychopathic Florida drifter, whose body, brains, and cocky attitude are all he has to offer the world. For Josh, sex is a momentary pleasure or, more often, a commodity for sale and killing - beginning with his own parents - an easy way to make problems ago away.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.)

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
