*Tears hair out

The tax form thing man! The advertisements are baloney on that front! I have no idea what a WMD whatever or whatis code that they're throwing at me. Need to look for tax identification numbers as well? I'm completely at loss here. I have the draft and cover up there waiting but this tax thing is annoying. And being where I am, I'm wondering if I won't meet more roadbloacks because this land is known for being super complicated on that front.

So Coryn. In the end it might have to be you who publishes the actual Anthology.

I'll ask Hasith as well again how exactly the first anthologies went out as well

If it comes to that, it'll have to wait until my apartment situation is sorted.

Hello Raiders.

Due to how overcomplicated the publishing process is and seeing as how it's already June, I've decided to have the Anthology as a free digital release.


This Anthology was already a test to see if it could come together and be published. And while it's a failure on my part to be able to figure out how to get it actually printed for physical consumption, I hope that we'll be able to find those methods later down the line for future anthologies. The whole mess with taxes and the like is still something that gives me more of a headache than i'd like, so Ill deal with that issue later down the line.

Besides, we need to start thinking about the next Writer's Anthologies down the line. The Writers' and Artists'. I'm hoping that things go better on those front.


I do think that electronic publishing of the anthologies is a valid method to go, so long as we up the game in terms of how they look and story content. But those are just plans for the future.

I can't mention a set release date, but keep watch of this space. Again, thanks for all your participation, and my apologies for not being able to get  it to the publishing stage.

What is complicated about the publishing process?

How expensive is it to just have some publishing house print copies of the anthology?

I have no idea, but could be something to look into. But no matter how simple the first pages look you always run into frustrating tax thingimajigs and that's frustrating as all hell.

Would anyone be interested for an End of Year Anthology? Or more accurately, would it be feasible?

It's exactly what it sounds like. It's a section to create anthologies of written stories.

We put out several MR anthologies of both written and drawn stories in the past, but as you can see, the practice has fallen out of favor, as those of us who were originally running the projects slowly lost their free time, and no one else ever stepped up to the plate.

Not that I can blame them. These things are a whole lot of work, and people on the internet are flakey at the best of times. It's always nice when things come together, but it's just not always feasible.

If you are interested in how the process goes, I would recommend reading through some of the completed anthology topics.
