If you're unfamiliar with this site, you may be wondering a whole host of things: Where am I? What is Waxing Press? What is An Accidental Profession? Why should I read this book? I write books, should I submit my book to Waxing Press? So, to answer most of those questions, I'd like to answer a bigger one: why did we choose An Accidental Profession to inaugurate Waxing Press and set us out into this world? It's an easy one.
