So, I think we’ve come close to narrowing down the incentives portion of the Kickstarter for Dieselpunk: an Anthology.
We went from 20 to 16. Whether these will make the final cut for the initial project start is still up in the air. A few of them would be on the higher end of expensive to create.
Give us your feedback! Continue Reading…
In recent weeks I’ve covered much of what goes into creating an anthology, and now’s a good time to revisit one of those earlier blogs.
“Why?” you ask.
Well, because Twit Publishing is now accepting submissions for its sixth PULP! anthology, which will be released in early 2013.
Important: **Deadline for Submissions is 11/30/2012**
Twit Publishing Presents: PULP! is a semi-annual anthology that is a collection of the genre fiction derived from the original pulp magazines. When people think back on pulp nowadays, they think of hard boiled detective fiction. But, it was much, much more than that. Authors like Ray Bradbury, Robert E. Howard and H. P. Lovecraft all got their start in the pulp mags. There were magazines covering westerns, horror, action/adventure, superheros, science fiction, fantasy. Not just detective. Twit Publishing welcomes short stories from ANY genre. The best part about our anthologies is that the reader gets more than just one genre, they get a smorgasbord of literary delights.
Compensation: 3% of Revenue from both ebook and print edition sales.
All short stories must meet the minimum requirements of 4000 words, and be a maximum of 9000 words in length.
All content submitted to Twit Publishing for PULP! anthologies must be solely owned by the creator.
Additionally, all content must be original.
Stories must be submitted by the author(s), and not a 3rd party.
Please submit as a .DOC or .RTF file.
Please send a short author’s bio along with any submission.
Do not send any story pitches or ideas. **They will be deleted without being read**.
**Submissions from authors in the United States only**
Email submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject line of email should read as the author’s name and title of submitted story.
So, spread it around folks. If you know a writer, have them send something. If they’ve never submitted anything before, have them read the blog post at the top.
Like all great projects (the Great Wall of China, the Acropolis, Ulysses, and the Sistine Chapel), the cover image for Dieselpunk: an Anthology progresses.
Here’s a cleaned up before shot. Chris has fixed the kerneling (space between letters) and leading (space between each line), so everything is cleaned up and within the column widths. This was the first rendition. The second one (which Chris treated before I could think to take a picture) has the Travel Column for beautiful Cayo Hueso inserted. Continue Reading…
Yesterday, I promised I’d have some interior work done and ready to show you.
Well, I do. Continue Reading…
Completely tapped out on blogging ideas today.
Currently working on the interior layout and trying to get reader copies in the hands of as many reviewers and writers as possible. We need cover blurbs, damnit!
I’ll be posting a short blog tomorrow with some mock-ups of what the interior may look like. I say may, because there’s no telling how we’ll tweek things between now and the some-day-soon when the book is released. I think what’s posted tomorrow will be a rough approximation of the look.
So, until then, I got nothing.
