We've received a few emails from people about what's going on with the Notes From Underground anthology. It's taking a little longer than I personally anticipated, but I only have myself to blame for that since I was the one putting the initial book together and took way too long to do it. Life got a bit crazy!
|last year's anthology|
Thanks, everyone! I can't wait to see this beautiful book up on Amazon for sale! It will be well the worth wait! In the meantime, you can always satiate your reading hunger with a copy of Genre Wars from last year. You can find more info about it on the Anthology Site.
Yes, we are working on it! I'm sorry for the delay as well. We're doing our best!ReplyDelete
In other news, I found a magic dryer yesterday at the Laundromat. It kept running even though I didn't give it any quarters. Yay!
Thanks for the update!ReplyDelete
ooo- magic dryers, I used to have one of those!
Funny, I was just wondering about the anthology last night. Lots of work, I'm sure. We all appreciate it and really look forward to the finished product. I'm glad it will be on Amazon.ReplyDelete
Is there any way to get Genre Wars on Amazon? Even as a Kindle download? Some people have complained Lulu makes them jump through too many hoops.
A magic dryer. Could make a great plot device. Maybe the dryer lint could be magic, too?
Domey: Yay for the magic dryer! Don't announce it too loudly or the magic might go away.ReplyDelete
Anne: That's easier said than done...but it might be a possibility in the future. We'd let everyone know, of course.
I love your new header.ReplyDelete
No worries about the anthology.ReplyDelete
I'm excited to hear about the dryer!
It was a dark and stormy night. Work had been incredibly busy, and I was down to my last clean shirt. (Okay, it wasn't a shirt, but let's call it a shirt.) Even though I was exhausted from my P90X workout and hungry because I had also been too busy to go grocery shopping, I hauled my dirty clothes to my laundromat. Usually, the laundromat was just an ordinary-looking building. The front windows were scratched, and lint balls drifted around along the eddies of hot hair pushed out by the machines. There were old signs that bragged about how cheap a load of laundry used to be. But, today, the place had a strange aura around, something similar to the smell of Downy, but even cleaner than that...it smelled like Ultra Downey, and a lot of it. The usual patrons also looked different. They all seemed older than the people I typically saw there. I did my wash, and then it was time to dry my clothes. That was when I realized this was not my usual Laundromat.ReplyDelete
Strong voice, a lot of energy, and captured our attention, but I'm afraid we prefer, "laundrette," and we will not be able to use your story at this time. Thank you for thinking of us, and good luck.ReplyDelete
Dear Mr. Nevets,ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for your personal rejection. I know that you don't do that for many writers, and I do appreciate it. I assume this means that you like my writing, at least somewhat, so I do hope you'll consider more work from me in the future. In fact, I am attaching the 50+ short stories I have written, along with my first novel, Rooster, and my first novella, Bread, which is a literary horror story. Thank you very much for your consideration.
...Sorry, Mr. Nevets, but the size limit of my attachments was exceeded, so I will not be able to attach Bread after all.
Apologies if my sense of humor is running a bit bleak today.ReplyDelete
Oh! Just saw your response.
Now *that* I will print.
I'm afraid Nevets will never get Bread. I think those ants ate it.ReplyDelete
I've been working on the cover! It's progressing. I promise!ReplyDelete
As grumpy as I seem to be lately, the ants should eat me instead. hahaha :)ReplyDelete
Ants don't eat people. People eat people.ReplyDelete
People who love people eat people.ReplyDelete
Ants who love people let them.
What is in the coffee around here this morning?ReplyDelete
Whatever it is, can I have some please?
Domey- That was a great read.ReplyDelete
C.N. and Domey- you guys are a blast- the rejection and letter were wonderful for a smile today!
Geez- did I say morning? It's 4pm EST. Sheesh.ReplyDelete
I definitely need whatever is in your coffee. And chocolate. Massive amounts of chocolate.
That's the best part, Bru. I don't even drink coffee. This just comes from my natural well of inspiration, my NWOI.ReplyDelete
Summer, I'm glad my rejection can bring you joy. I wouldn't do it otherwise. I'd just get everything accepted.ReplyDelete
Bru, while it is no reflection on the quality or depth of my own NWOI, I will admit to the use of certain NWOI-enchancing substances, namely black coffee. As to whether anything is added to that black coffee that may or may not have any unintended impact upon NWOI-levels, I have no comment at this time.ReplyDelete
Summer, I'm glad that my brutalization of Pee Domey's writing ego has brought a moment of joy to you today. I can only hope that it has brought him a similar sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.
Waiting with baited breath ...ReplyDelete
(Maybe I shouldn't do that too long!)
Thanks for the update. I, too, like your new header. I'm so excited that it will be on Amazon! Oh, and that haunted dryer.....good basis for a story.ReplyDelete
