It has been way too long since I threw together a blog post. Living life really can take up your time! Things are good for me, though, so I will not complain. I hope to have more time to devote to writing and editing in the coming year, but work just keeps piling up. It's better to be busy than not, I suppose.
First off, I have to apologize to everyone involved with the Forbidden anthology about the further delay in publication. It is just taking a little longer to put things together for this collection, but it is 100% definitely going to be released in 2019! I promise. Once the final proofing and a couple of author rewrites are complete, we will be ready to set the final, concrete release date. I don't want to throw out another date range yet, because I would hate to miss it again. But be assured sometime during the first half of 2019. Unless something disastrous happens, the book will hit the presses before next summer, possibly much earlier. As soon as we get a firm release date, I will start posting the author interviews here on this blog to promote the book, as has become usual.
So, what else will be coming from Martinus Publishing in 2019? I have a couple of projects planned, so long as I can allocate the appropriate time. One thing will be a new short collection from one of my favorite contributing authors (more details once we finish planning things out a bit further). And after a long wait, I will be setting up another new anthology, something in the Alternate History field again, though this time with a twist. Without further ado, I hereby announce the next Martinus Publishing anthology:
This Never Happened!
~Alternate History Farce and Fantasy~
A new anthology devoted to the humorous side of alternative history fiction. This collection will hold stories that are funny and outrageous, set in worlds where history differs from what happened in our own reality, with ridiculous consequences. Tales that could not possibly have happened, or maybe they could have but would have just been absolutely hilarious if they did. This Never Happened will explore what could have been, and what absolutely could not have been as well. Make me laugh, and screw up history like never before for this wacky story collection!
You can find submissions details on the Martinus Publishing website here!
Let's see what happens in the new year!
