Lessons: Original Anthologies and Small Press

I found this out, early on, almost eight years ago: one of the easiest ways of making a big mistake is by publishing a lot of original anthologies. The appeal of them is that it's the easiest, and quickest, way to attract a lot of attention, from authors, with the idea that that can be built on, and leveraged, in some form or fashion. Unfortunately, such anthologies rarely earn out, and quite a lot lose money. Between that, and the energy and time spent on multiple contracts, mailing out contributor copies, and the like, proved to be a relative chore, and a drain.
