New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jody Lynn Nye has allowed us to include a wonderful short story in the upcoming anthology. The Fiber of Being will be our lead story and we can’t wait for you to read it.
Jody Lynn Nye teaches a two-day writers workshop at DragonCon that is a powerful opportunity for aspiring authors. This year, she has taken on the position of Coordinating Judge of the Writers of the Future contest. Find out more at jodynye.com or take her course at DragonCon.
Submissions will be open June 1st for Hidden Villains: Arise. Robyn Huss has agreed to be our editor again this year and we’ve reached out to Vivid Covers for their wonderful art.
Amazon jumped the launch and started selling paperbacks a couple days ago. Kindle and other Ingram outlets are still holding to March 17th pre-orders.
It has worked out to our benefit as Robyn Huss and other authors were moved into the top 100s in two categories: Science Fiction anthologies and Fantasy anthologies. We got close on Mystery anthologies as well.
