Different Mousetrap Press

I have a brief announcement to make, readers.  Sunnyville Stories is going to be produced and published here on by Different Mousetrap Press – a publishing company under my ownership.

Yes, I’ve done it.  In the morning hours of Monday, January 6, 2013, I created articles of organization to form a limited liability company and have mailed them to state government offices in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Within a few more days, I will be an LLC within the state of North Carolina.  

Operating Agreement and Business Plan

Different Mousetrap Press LLC will be the publisher and market of my work, Sunnyville Stories and other properties that I create – such as my current project, Von Herling Vampire Hunter.

Why the LLC?  This form allows me the best of both worlds.  I get the ease of pass-through taxation like a sole proprietorship with the limited liability protection of a corporation, yet with none of the strict formalities of the corporation.

The name of my company was an accident.  There’s a famous proverb that goes “build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door”.  When it came to my comics, I wanted to offer something other than a standard superhero tale.  So I said to myself that my goal was not to offer a better mousetrap, but a different mousetrap.  I like that phrase so much that I decided to keep it.

Stay tuned to the blog for further details.
