… in the publishing mill’s oven!
2016 will see another DreamWorlds Publishing anthology, ‘The Qworks’ up on the cyber shelves. Here’s our current schedule, with the good news that we’re still open for up to to 3 fresh short story submissions from upwards of 1000 words to a max of 20K –
- submissions will now stay open up until 30th June 2016
- editing phase will run for 4 months from 1st July until 31st October
- proofing will commence 1st November until 3oth November
- publication of paperback edition 1st January 2017
- eBook edition released (on Amazon/Kindle only) 1st January 2017
A generous time scale for those of you who haven’t yet submitted and one which is gentler on everyone and should give me plenty of wriggle room to get things merging smoothly into my own evolving work-life balancing needs 😉 To those who have submitted already, my apologies for having to revise the timetable but I hope this one will be more realistic and be more manageable for those of us who’re involved in the editorial and production phases. One factor that we haven’t yet embraced for our group is that of marketing and promotion – sales of Dreamless Roads have been negligible, mainly because ‘getting it out there’ has not been the top of my list after the initial adrenalin rush of getting it out for Xmas 2014.
For this project I’m hoping we can do more in the way of promotion via social networks and personal blogs, but of course that’s still a way off so, in the meantime, I look forward to seeing your new work winging its way into my waiting inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) soon! 😀
