Default Career change...

Hi all,

I'm just beginning a career change (my fifth!) into publishing. My background has been in high tech for the last 20 years, with the last 11 doing semiconductor layout design (CAD-like work) for the world's largest microprocessor manufacturer (3 guesses as to who and the 1st 2 don't count ). I've been accepted into the Langara College (Vancouver, BC) Publishing degree program and will be starting this fall (after I move from Oregon ). I think my CAD experience has provided me with the transferable skills I'll need in order to do the mechanics of publishing.

My husband and I are planning on starting a small publishing company. He was the lead writer of dark fantasy/horror for Warren Publishing (Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella) for about 10 years mostly during the 70s. He has spent another 20 some odd years working in the film and animation industries (Universal, Disney, Hanna Barbera, etc) since then and wants to take up writing again. We are looking at doing graphic novels and will be using some of his IPs that he has had on the back burner to start the company with the possibility to bring on additional writers in the future.

I'm glad I've found the DTP forum and suspect I'll be coming to this well of
knowledge quite frequently while I'm in school and into the future.
