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. With the ThunderHorse Publishing website 80% complete 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 Author also needed an outlet that would showcase their writings. The Corral, a division of ThunderHorse Publishing, is an online magazine that fills that need.

We at The Corral encourage the emerging author no matter the experience to make a submission and/or enter a contest. The pay, well it is not great but the publicity could be priceless.


Please use the contact form to ask any questions about making submissions, entering a contest or inquire about other services.



Happy writing,

The Corral Staff.
