MR Writer's Anthology 2016 Updates
« on: September 29, 2015, 08:35:14 PM »
I will be posting updates on the actual editing process of the MRWA, and here is a sketch list and table of contents.

We are aiming for a 100-110 page anthology, which rounds out to about 50,000 Words.

No need for daily updates or anything but anyone shortlisted here please notify for any major page count changes, and be sure to notify us if you won't be able to submit a story after all so that we can prepare.

As a preliminary date we're aiming for early January 2016 as a release date for the anthology. Ideally, editing will begin in December, but don't worry if you still have work to do by the end of the year.

This should ideally be the last postponement date, so I already have back up stories ready to post to catch up any slack, but I'm sure we'll have the needed amount of entries by then. That's just worst case scenario



1 - Specify if you want your name published or your username
2 - If you make any updates post here or PM me.


3 -
"Estimated Anthology Price"
https://www.createspace.com/Products/Book/#content7

Yeah.

So for a 100 page anthology each copy will cost 2.15$. Shipping costs vary widely so you'll have to use the calculator for that.

But for the book itself it seems to be around the 2-5$ range (5 for a 370 page book if I read correctly)


So it seems reasonably affordable so long as shipping doesn't screw you over.

Dream Lab - MisterSherbertLemon. Estimated 18 pages *WIP

Diablo of The Fazenda - legomaestro, swearzy and Fronomenal. 10 pages *Complete

I think counting No1sey's Entry and the other chapters we'll reach our goal! Others may have to cut off some of their chapters if it goes too far but let's see what editing magic I can do.

Still waiting on confirmation from 2 more authors I believe.


And the question of artists is still open. No rush but don't forget to say whatever's going on!

Yeah count me in, my entry will be a re-written version of "Storm Clouds and Silver Linings" and I reckon it'll be around 8-10 pages, but if you need the whole 16 filled then I can work something else out.

I've got a short story that I wouldn't mind trying to put in, if it's not too late and you have the time to look it over?

I sent you the short story on Skype. It's 12 pages on Microsft Word's default 8.5 x 11 inch format, but who knows what converts to in your EUROPEAN units of measurement. Probably a few dozen degrees Celsius at the least.

Sounds good. I've also recieved Nair's complete document, so I'll start working on the actual document. Paste in the complete works.

I'm going with the alphabetical order as the submitted stories appear in the anthology board to make things simple.

Got a 100 page document in my Google Drive that I'm working on

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4ZeoXf90O9xc2NsTEV0VTJsd3c

I've started up a Google Doc too but am too lazy to format it properly let alone figure out how to share it at the moment. But in any case all stories (whether complete or not) have been stuffed into the document.

With No1sey's entry and the completion of other works I'm expecting 120 pages for the anthology. Ther'll be some hemming and hawing of course but I think that's the realistic expectation .


QUESTION: Do we indent for paragraphs or jump a space? Because that will impact the page count by quite a bit. Indentation would save tonnes of pages.

indenting is the correct way to go about it. skipping a space is probably just some heathen british english way of doing things
