Could you give me links to those services?

And I wanted to say I plan on releasing this on Amazon Kindle because that seems to be the fastest and cheapest way

Hey dude,

I'm sorry for going MIA for so long. I'm also sorry because I haven't been able to finish either of the pieces that I said I would for the anthology...

I was wondering however, if there is still space, if I could put in Chapter 1 of my Public Enemy No.2 series as my entry instead? It's not nearly as long as the others were going to be, but it's complete and I've been doing a bit of work on the series again.

If I send you the document by the end of the week would that be cool? I might also draw a banner for it if that's ok?

A banner for the anthology?

2 Things on the agenda now people!

1-  Due to grand problems with the Anthology as always, there will be another delay for it.

Vacant and Sherbert have offered to help with it this time, so we're setting the publishing date for 2016. The plan is to have both a digital release and also a print-on-demand release where Sherbert hopes to sell a few physical copies other than the stuff that we'll be recieving.

There is still stuff to be done when it comes to spell check and the like, and No1sey, your submission is the last we're expecting.

The stories have already been locked in as it is otherwise so thanks for participating!



2- Names and info

Please tell us what names you'll be using for the anthology - whether your forum based name or your real names. If you also have any fun tid-bits to add to your story in the form of short notes (preferably humourous) then please say so so that we can know.



And one last thing


I'm always nervous about delays like this so I'm crossing my fingers that this will be the last one ever, because we've needed an Anthology for a very long time. However, this might give chance for people to start work on the artists' anthology!

I'm down for using my real name.

As for special notes, maybe just a point about how it's a sequel to the original life at sea.

RIGHT! Finally got my chapter sent to you... sorry for the delay...

You can use my real name and put my monicker in brackets or something.

I can't think of any humorous tidbits off the top of my head, but might come up with something...

Not really, an anthology is just a collection of stories. Since we're self publishing, we can't really afford to do an anthology with large novels.  A collection of short stories is a good way to just get our stuff out there in print.

Also since none of us have ever written something that's well known (as far as I'm aware ;)), members of the anthology can get several prints and try to give them out to spread the word if they wish. For example I'm going to get something like 20 copies and just give them to a guy I know who sells stuff at comic fairs to see if people will pick them up.

Hmmm...

Used to anthologies being bigger than that, giving like 10-20 people a chance to be in it. Ddn't I read that it's going to be publish on demand and not actually printed? Or maybe that was another forum...been on a few lately.

In past we did both online version and printed version. For printed version we usually use  on demand painters. A copy costed around $4 - $8 I think. It's been a while so I don't remember exact prices.

If there are more participants, I'm editors will able to do something about that. Downside is bigger the book get unit price will be high ($5 as to first post)  and shipping cost would be high too. (total price = unit price + shipping)

Yeah, the anthology can definitely grow and grow if more people submit stories, but the price will also go up.

Figured it was some locked in thing. Thanks for answering my questions. Guess my mini story would be too short... I should clean it up anyway...
