The origins of Bosulliman

I gave this name to my Publishing venture. To many it sounds unusual to many; that’s intentional. Where did I get the name though?

When I began studying Animation in University in 1987, I was paired up with another guy I became friends with. I thought his last name was O’Sullivan.

With that in mind I mixed it with my own last name (Boman) and came to Bosulliman.

My mismanagement of names in memory can be a constant, and this situation followed that rule: his last name was O’Connor.

The studio name obviously didn’t happen, but the name stuck in the back of my brain. It ¬†came back to me now.

Another friend from a different group – the Montreal chapter of NaNoWriMo – is a graphic designer. He designed the logo that I’ll be using. I posted it here before but I’ll do so again now:



Past-due updates

Sorry that I didn’t post sooner. This past weekend was the Montreal Comic Con. It was a great event and I needed a few more days to decompress.

A lot has happened since then.

First, here’s the logo for my upcoming book company:

I was impressed by what artist Marc-Alex Belanger created.

I have also now created a Twitter feed for this. Look for @bosulliman for it.

Lastly, I’ve now made my plans for what I’ll do for my first books. It will start some time in 2013 with several drafts, so I won’t get into specific details yet… what I intend to do is release each story as a trilogy on the Kindle platform first. Each part of each trilogy will be an Act of a full story. A few months later I’ll compile all three parts as a full novel to release on the Createspace POD platform.

I’ll try to release a trilogy every year that way.

Blog Look Change

I changed this blog’s WordPress theme . Much as I liked the look of the old one, Pages that I added wouldn’t show. ¬†They do now, and my newsletter signup is now visible. I have to get the first newsletter done now!

Speaking of changes, above is the logo for my Kindle publishing company, what do you think?
