Exciting News and A Name!

It has been quite the week here at the old Dragon's Roost Press. There are a couple of exciting announcements, the first of which is we have decided on a title for our upcoming anthology. We put the question to the best and brightest (those who follow us on our Facebook pages) and received a number of interesting answers. We mashed together our favorites and decided upon

(drum roll please)

Desolation: 21 Tales for Tails

Our other big announcement is that all of the authors have been contacted with the edited copies of their stories, bios, and contracts mentioned in the last post. Over half responded overnight.

We are on schedule for our Spring release!

Time for an Update

Just in case there are those who are following the anthology’s progression here and not on the Facebook page (which can be found here), how about an update?

The bulk of the editing process has been completed. All of the submissions have been printed, reviewed, and edited. The edits have been input on new files which are formatted for printing.

Before that can happen we will be sending the edit stories to their respective authors for approval. At the same time we will be sending contracts for signatures, final word counts so the authors will know what they will be making for their submissions, and what we have as far as a biography also for the authors’ verification.

Our aim is to have all of this material sent out by Tuesday. With any luck the responses will arrive in a few weeks and we can go forward with the next portion of the process which will be uploading the files for printing.

We’re all quite excited here. Every step we complete brings us that much closer to the release of the anthology.

We also mentioned that we are still looking for a title, but we may have chosen one. We will let you know as soon as we make a final decision.

Update

Just a quick update to let everyone know where we are in terms of the anthology. We are about 2/3 of the way through the edits which we hope to send out along with contracts next week. As we are rereading the stories, the shape of the anthology is starting to come together.

This story would go really well after this story. These two play off of each other nicely.

We hope you all survived the Polar Vortex!
