Check that out, huh? I'm happy to announce that Murder will be releasing Pschopomp and Circumstance by me, Adrean Messmer, on May 1st. You can pre-order a physical copy in our shop or check out the links to get the ebook.
We will soon be releasing our first novel, we've got some more anthologies we're working on, and you guys are just the best. So, to celebrate, we thought a new look was in order. Take a look our 99Designs experiment to get a new logo for Murder.
And check out the killer designers that have already given us some amazing options. So far these guys have been stellar. Nothing but friendly and incredibly friendly.
As you can see by the title, Now Playing in Theater B is going to be a few days late.
Unfortunately, we ran into one of those invisible technical issues that no one ever knows about until someone says something like, "Hey, did you send out that thing yet? Because I didn't get anything."
I had hoped that we would could get it all dealt with in time, but time wasn't really down for that. So, here we are. Running late.
I am so sorry. It should only be a couple of days while we make the final edits we weren't able to before.
Jack and I have just finished putting the final touches on everything (we think) for Broken Worlds. The e-book is ready for its release on the 31st. You can pre-order it over at Smashwords. The paperback is running a bit behind, but should be ready in the next couple of weeks.
This one has exceeded all of our expectations so far. We have been so blown away by the response and the great writing. You guys (and by "guys" I mean both our writers and our readers) are so awesome.
Make sure you pick up a copy. Review it (unless you're one of the authors, get your friends to review it), and spread the word.
As I begin writing this post, it is July 10th at 11:59pm. And we are done making all decisions regarding Broken Worlds. As of right now, you should've received either an email from us regarding whether or not your story will be published within the pages of Broken Worlds on July 31st. If you haven't received an email from us, please let us know through Facebook, Twitter, or my contact page.
Thank you to everyone who submitted. At the end of the day, we had so many great pieces that declining some was utterly painful. Unfortunately, we had to draw the line at how many pieces we could accept. (Actually, I skirted a little over that line. Which might've been bad.)
Future updates on the Broken Worlds anthology will be published through my website, this website, and all of our respective social media platforms. So make sure you're following A Murder of Storytellers on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and all those other places. And while you're at it, follow me, too. I always have important stuff to say.
Okay, that's not wholly true. Every once in a while I have important stuff to say. But you don't wanna miss those times!
As the month of June comes to a close, so does our initial selection process for the short stories that will be in our newest anthology Broken Worlds. We were very excited to see the stream of submissions and thoroughly enjoyed reading this cornucopia of creative works. If we had the room to publish Broken Worlds in three or four volumes, I'm sure we'd try.
We want to thank everyone who submitted pieces to Broken Worlds. By now, all of you should have received an email from us. If you haven't, please comment below this post, on Facebook, or on Twitter to let us know because something must have gone wrong somewhere. What follows is the schedule for Broken Worlds for the month of July, leading all the way up to publication.
If you made it onto our second read list, then you'll be receiving accept or decline emails over the first week and a half of July. We expect all of our final selections to have been made by July 10th, so—again—if you haven't received an email by then please let us know through this site, my contact page, Facebook, or Twitter.
We expect Broken Worlds to officially publish—at least in e-book format—on July 31st.
So that's where we are. Thank you again for your stories, your creativity, and your support. We'll all be in touch again soon.
I've been wanting to do this event forever. Well, since I first heard about it at least. It sounded amazing, and if the YouTube video is to be believed, it looks amazing too!
So this year, we're doing it! And we're doing it as a team. A team that we would love for you to join! So here's what you do: When you register for the Color Festival and 5K Run/Walk by clicking here, you'll have the opportunity to choose what team you want to be on via a dropdown menu. Pick "AMurderofStorytellers." Then you'll need to put in the team password, which is "crows."
Remember to register for the nighttime run (not the daytime event), because the summer sun is cruel and unusual to our skin. To be honest, most of us may actually be doing a healthy amount of walking rather than walking because we've grown too comfortable in front of our computers, so don't be too worried about not being in shape.
This is about fun! So we really hope you'll join us at this great event.
What an exciting time! The call for Broken Worlds submissions is over.
Writing is important for many reasons. We, writers, are called to our profession by purpose. We have seen human experience at its coarsest, we have experienced life at its brightest and its darkest, and we have been brought to writing it via its grittiest. We are borne by life, but we are worn into the implements of its telling.
Thank you for your submissions. I'm honored by them. We will be honored by their publishing.
It's that time again. Broken Worlds submissions begin today and end on May 31st! We want your stories, as always. We're still working with Submittable to make all of this happen, and we're all eager to see what stories you have brewing around in your heads.
Are we all about horror? Maybe a little bit, but not really. Broken Worlds caters to a large swath of stories, and I hope that your creative juices will flow. There's no doubt this will be a wonderful anthology full of very talented writers. We honestly cannot wait to read your work.
More information is available on our Submissions page.
