Edits

We have finished editing the stories for Dark Pages!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the editorial staff and the authors on getting through this period - an excellent job was done by all. We now move on to more mundane stuff like an editorial foreword, the gathering of quotes from ARC readers, blurb writing, and cover art finalisation! As promised by Blade Red, it will be released in the first half of this year.

I've also done 'another' final edit on Dreaming, my piece in the Apex anthology "The Blackness Within", which is due for release around August. This was a request from the editor, Gill Ainsworth--not something I did off my own bat. Hopefully it is now well and truly done and the next time I see it will be inside the cover of my contributor copy...

One last thing of note - I've not written often or recently on this blog, and yet I'm still gathering followers. Kind of scary to be reminded that what goes up here will be available for the rest of time. I guess it's a timely reminder to always be very aware of what you publish, and never ever burn a bridge with harsh words because it will be around to haunt you for a long time to come!

    Well said, BT. The community is too small a place.

  2. Kind of spooky, really, how words can stick around. I found something I wrote about H.G. Wells in college at some hack essay site the other day...
