Also, time is running out to vote on the short story which I will be writing for the Author’s Support Edition. Please vote in the poll in my previous announcement and comment to have your say. I want the short story to be something you would enjoy, so I’m counting on you all for feedback on this one!

Hello reader, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? Some things have been in the pipe line, and I would like to pass along the good news!

On April 11, 2011 there will be the release of the first volume of Dreamers of Dreams: A Webfiction Anthology. This will be an Ebook release, released simultaneously on several popular Ebook and webfiction stores. It is a free book containing excerpts and opening chapters of several web fiction novels currently available for free online. The works that will be included in this anthology include works that have been completed and novels currently being serialized.  There will be a large range of genres available in this anthology, with everything from science fiction, urban and high fantasy, murder mystery and more dystopian apocalypses than you can shake a Boomstick at.

The intended aim is to try and introduce readers to new stories and serials that they may not have heard of, and raise the profiles of newer writers who are showing promise and are putting themselves and their works out their on the internet. There are also hopes that this is anthology which shall be released on a regular (but as of yet, undecided) basis.

Volume one of Dreamers of Dreams will include the following authors and stories:

Ted Campbell             – Flyover City!

Eva Shandor               – Cold Ghost

Cassandra Stryffe      – Zombie Diapers

Bex Aaron                   – Independence Day

J.J. Adams                  – The Undeadslayer

Alexander Hollins        – Phoenix 2125

Rebecca Wilson          – Soul Chaser

Christopher Wright      – Pay Me, Bug! 

Kyt Dotson                  – Black Hat Magick

G.L. Drummond          – Enter the Weird

Miladysa                      – Refuge of Delayed Souls

Meilin Miranda                        – Scryer’s Gulch

M.E. Traylor                – Guts and Sass

The anthology has been compiled and distributed by DreamFantastic Publishing. If you’re looking for more information on the anthology, or would like to find out more about the individual authors who are involved with this project, take a dander over to http://www.dreamfantastic.com/anthology/

Even more exciting, a .99 cent edition of the anthology, the Author’s Support Edition, will be sold starting the end of April. Why should you buy this? Because it will contain additional bonus content from many of the authors involved in the project, some of which may not be available on their sites as of yet. You would also be supporting the authors and their works by purchasing this edition, and showing support for your favourite web serials. For those Cold Ghost fans wondering what will be in it for them, I am including a polished chapter for the regular edition, and will be writing an previously unseen short story for the Author’s Support Edition, which you will be able to vote on at the bottom of this blog post.

If you havea any questions or concerns, or even if you are interested in being included in future anthologys, you can contact the fantabulous Alexander Hollins at Editor@dreamfantastic.com.  Hopefully as and when the anthology does live, I shall link my lovely readers to it, so they can discover more material.

EDIT: If you vote other, or vote for the third option, then please PLEASE comment and clarify! If you all vote for supporting character and then don’t state which supporting character you are voting for, then it makes it much harder to write this vignette!

So I’ve been looking into things like top web fiction and Twitter and trying to get Cold Ghost out there, and I’ve been thinking about the possibility of offering you guys voting incentives like bonus stories or extra updates if we do well.

I know this is fairly early on in the game, since I’ve only recently committed myself to a fortnightly schedule. Things have been a bit rough here for the past few months, but I think that this could be a worthwhile venture.

The question is, what do you guys think? Please vote and comment! I’m not sure if I’m up for doing complete smut pieces yet, though it is a possibility. And I would definitely consider doing character background pieces as voting incentives. Art is another option, but I’d prefer to avoid it if I can, because my art skills aren’t exactly fantastic at the moment…
