Futurist Publishing is the illegitimate brainchild of lifelong friends, Mark T. Wain and Jane Austen Texas. After Mark secretly fell in love with Jane, he did the one thing that anybody in his situation would do: start an indie publishing powerhouse in order to impress a girl!
Mark’s romantic intentions were misunderstood by Jane, as she thought that he just wanted her to write romance books for him. Instead of correcting her, he filed for a business license and rented some office space. He had hoped that if they worked alone together long enough, she would see him as more than just a friend. Oblivious to his feelings, Jane insisted it was necessary to hire more people.
The pair enlisted the help of the most talented and prestigious illustrator they could find. When that didn’t work out, they brought Billy Blaze on board.
Billy insisted on bringing his friend from college, Emily Johnson, with him. Emily insisted on bringing a cappuccino machine with her. The cappuccino machine didn’t have any special requests.
Vera Awesome was soon added to the roster after making a bet with Mark. As for who actually won the bet, nobody’s really sure, but that is an entirely different story.
Dick Dickley was naturally attracted to the good vibes of the first five, as it was something he’d like to ruin and destroy. His court-appointed therapist convinced him to give writing a try first. Unfortunately, he was still bloodthirsty even after penning all his jerkiness into bestsellers.
All would have been lost, but luckily everyone was saved when Sweetie, the bestest secretary in the world, offered to lend her administrative and Dick-taming expertise into the mix.
As our indie publishing powerhouse team continues to grow with the addition of more exceptionally gifted writers and staff members, we look forward to the future. We want to thank everyone for being part of our best story yet. Thank you for reading!
