The Conception

Joseph Clay, is a published independent author who began his writing career in 2012. He knows the agony and struggles a new writer encounters as he has been through them. Joseph had a desire to find away to help others avoid some of the same pit falls and mistakes he endured.

Joseph created ThunderHorse Publishing (THP) out of that desire and necessity to serve the needs of the Independent Author. Joseph knew that THP was a great start in helping the new writer. The website features writing tips in the forms of blogs and charts, along with book reviews and spotlights.

However Joseph felt that the independent also needed an outlet that would showcase their talents. The Corral, a division of ThunderHorse Publishing, is an online magazine that fills that need.
