Featured Book: For Pride Month

Gregory L. Norris

Gregory L. Norris writes regularly for numerous short story anthologies, national magazines, novels, and the occasional episode for TV or film. Gregory novelized the NBC TV classic by Gerry Anderson, The Day After Tomorrow: Into Infinity. Gregory won HM in the 2016 Roswell Awards in Short SF Writing. He once worked as a screenwriter on two episodes of Star Trek: Voyager. Kate Mulgrew, Voyager’s Captain Janeway, blurbed his book of short stories and novellas, The Fierce and Unforgiving Muse, stating, “In my seven years on Voyager, I don’t think I’ve met a writer more capable of writing such a book—and writing it so beautifully.”

In 2019, Gregory sold his modern Noir feature film screenplay, Amandine, to the new Hollywood production company Snarkhunter owned by actor Dan Lench, a devotee of Gregory’s writing. In late 2020, Snarkhunter optioned Gregory’s tetralogy Horror film based pon 4 of his short stories, Ride Along. Twice Norris has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. He is the author of the novel Ex Marks the Spot and the forthcoming release of SF tales of wonder and adventure stretching from Sol to Pluto, The Solar System.

 

Publishing New Voices

With pride we offer new authors a platform that gives them the chance to get their quality book out there to appreciative readers without the elitist, closed door fight of catching the attention of a big house publisher. An independent publisher like Van Velzer Press can offer its authors much more attention and assistance to ensure the best version of each book makes it to the printing presses.
