Meet Author J.B. Burrage!

Author JB Burrage is definitely a power to be reckoned with.  An extremely talented writer, JB Burrage has written Caught Up, an adult street thriller that is comparable to the juicy story that you might hear going on in the neighborhood; and the sci-fi thriller Secrets Revealed, a story that adds a lot of realism to science fiction.  But he is not done showing the world his talent.  Author JB is also working on The Forbidden Lounge, the sequel to Caught Up, and a novel that will be better and juicier than Caught Up itself and is due to be released in 2011.  He is also working on other projects that he chooses to keep secret, for now.

Jacob “JB” Burrage was born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised in Meridian, Mississippi.  After leaving Mississippi, JB Burrage served in the US Army from 1999 until 2010.  During his time in the Army, he has been to Hawaii, Egypt, Israel, New York State, Maryland, and Texas; as well many other states.  While in the Army, he discovered himself and his true talents, and decided to pursue that by founding J. Burrage Publications.

Normally a science fiction writer, Caught Up was written in an attempt to express himself through other genres. With the release of Caught Up, JB Burrage is now focused on the publication of Secrets Revealed by the beginning of 2011 and the development of The Forbidden Lounge.  He also has a blog series, The Chronicles, at The JBP Chronicles blog at

Interview with the Author/Publisher:

1.  What is the mission of your publishing company?
My overall mission/goal for J. Burrage Publications, LLC (JBP) is to publish, distribute, and promote quality books, as well as establish a foothold in the publishing world as a company to be respected and reckoned with.  This is especially the case for novels that could really make an impact but haven't been given the chance by other publishing houses.  Once JBP is ready to publish other writers, the selection for novels will be very difficult due to the fact that we do not want to just put any type of work out there.  Our two mottos basically say it all, “Read into my Dimension, 3-B”, and “Taking over the industry, one book at a time”.

 2. What year was J. Burrage Publications founded?
 In the spring of 2007.

 3. What is the website address for J. Burrage Publications?, currently has hundreds of unique visitors that view the site on a monthly basis.

 4. What inspired you to start a publishing company for self-publishers/new authors?
I am the type of person who likes to have control over his own work, goals, etc.  I started JBP after my first attempt with going with a publisher.  When I realized I rushed into the project (a sci-fi novel called The Journal of John Baker, (which is what Secrets Revealed is based off of) and wrote Caught Up, I decided it would be best if I handled my own projects.  I have made attempts to reach out to a few publishers and agents, which I can't even remember who they are now, but were rejected or didn't get replies back.  This further helped me decide that I should just publish my own work.  Plus I felt like a mainstream publisher would not understand my work and take away most of its effects.  So, instead of dealing with that, I just simply did my research on the industry and started JBP.

 5. What other publications are on the horizon for J. Burrage Publications?
Secrets Revealed is in the pre-publishing phase with an anticipated release date of on or about January 2, 2011.  The Forbidden Lounge is currently being written.

 6. Are there any other services offered by J. Burrage Publications?
Currently, there is J. Burrage Creative Services, which will be a network of writers and graphic designers.  JBCS will provide affordable editing and designing services to self-publishers, businesses, and individuals just requiring certain projects.  Website is for JBCS is  Also, JBP is launching its own online bookstore, called The Book Store.  The Book Store will carry JBP titles and will be another outreach to our reader base in addition to Amazon, whom we work closely with.  Also, JBP will start publishing other authors within a year to a year and a half.

 7. What’s the future of J. Burrage Publications?
I have a very ambitious goal for JBP within the next 5 years.  I want JBP to eventually become a full media entertainment business, publishing books, magazines, stage play productions, and even screenplay productions.
