ABOUT TOM EPPERSON
Tom Epperson, founder of Multivalent Press, a creative publishing house, joined the Legend Fiction Show to discuss his unique process and his books. Epperson, who has been writing for decades, struggled to get his stories in front of readers. He eventually published a trilogy called ‘The Other Side of Dead’ through his own indie publishing route. Epperson and his two sons, who also write, decided to create Multivalent Press to publish different genres of books. Epperson’s novel, ‘Once to Die,’ is the first book in the trilogy. It follows the story of a young man who has spent his life homeless and caring for his father with alcoholism. The protagonist runs afoul of both organized crime and local gangs and spends most of the book on the run. ‘Once to Die’ has received several awards and accolades.
ABOUT MULTIVALENT PRESS
