Direlda Is Published!
Direlda posted a topic in Writing and BooksI'm published in the Rainfurrest convention anthology! Yay! The anthology is called Furtual Horizons and contains 11 short stories plus some accompanying artwork. But there were complications... First, Nova's artwork got lost somewhere in the process after I sent it to the anthology submission staff. ã… .ã… I'm really bummed about that because I was both excited to have her art accompany my story and to have an artist friend get published. Nova, of course, is also rather bummed. Second, there was a bit of a formatting glitch at the end of my story, which resulted in the story that follows mine getting reproduced, without any gap, at the end of my story and labeled as mine in the header (that story is also properly attributed, titled, and presented following the end of "my" story). So the second to last line on page 112 of the anthology is where my story ends (last word of the line is "restaurant"). This sort of error happens from time to time and it will be fixed if they ever get enough demand to do a reprint. The cost of the anthology is $10, plus tax. I was mistaken about the charity--this year's charity is the Cougar Mountain Zoo, so proceeds from the sale of anthologies will be going to them. I haven't had time to read through the anthology in its entirety, so I can't tell you about what they all are about or the age-appropriateness of all of them. There are at least a few that are definitely PG-13, possibly bordering on R (for language, violence, brief mention of genitals in dialogue, and/or allusions to sex). But there are also some that are PG. Also, the publisher the convention went with to publish the anthology, FurPlanet, does publish adult books in addition to books suited for the general public, which might be an issue for some of you. If you want a copy you can either PM me tomorrow and I can try to pick one up on Sunday (and then we can arrange repayment) or you can order one off the FurPlanet website.

Direlda posted a topic in Writing and BooksThe 2014 Rainfurrest convention anthology is being released on the 25th of September and I have a short story in it! Whoo! \^o^/ And NovaWulf did an illustration for my story, which should also be showing up in the anthology! My story is called Neural Enrichment. Here is a blurb-in-progress: After saving for months on his hagwon English teacher's salary, John finally had enough to afford a cybernetic implant. He had hoped that his new Rycorp implant would allow him to fully enjoy all that the Korean Technocracy had to offer. Instead it turned him into an anthropomorphic fox and now bombards his mind with adverts. John is desperate to shut the world out of his head and is willing to seize any opportunity to do so even if it risks what humanity he has left. I don't know the cost of the anthology, but I do know that all proceeds will be going towards The Clouded Leopard Project. I also don't know the content of the other stories, but I do know that the anthology I'm in has a content rating of G to PG-13. Come the evening of September 25 I will be able to give you more information.
