So, I’ve submitted and it looks like my short story made the cut!
20 authors submitted stories and poetry towards an anthology, From the Dark Side. Between now and July 9th (release date) excerpts of the stories will be featured on the editors blog.
So here’s the deal, proceeds on purchase of the anthology go towards the Office of Letters and Light. You know the fine folks who put up with writers every November for NaNoWriMo? If they get enough donations throughout the year, they can put “laptop-like word processors in the eager hands of young writers who lack access to computers at school“. So yeah, getting e-published, relatively cool. But proceeds going back towards young creative types? And you get some very original fiction and poetry that you can brag to your friends about. How cool is that?
Electronic format will be available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com for $4.99. It’s over 55K words, so a big read for your Kindle, or E-reader. A lot of different writers and styles, so there is something for everyone. Actually, it’s more suited for the beautiful, the handsome, the adorable, the cute, the gorgeous and/or the lucky. If you are any of those or derivatives thereof, you should pick it up. And get one for your Mom, or that lady who lives down the street who makes things out of other things. Don’t judge, its art!
More details on the following link… Digg it! Don’t forget to check out all the other authors websites for insights and updates on this very cool project.
I’m still here, (and yes insomnia is winning tonight)
P.S. The Macguffin that I built for this is way better than James Cameron’s one for Avatar. At least in my opinion… which everyone has, like a bellybutton.
