  1. Well done everyone on this month's stories! It was a pleasure to read every single one!
  2. I can't wait to see what you all come up with this month 😁
  3. Thank you so much for the support, it means so much to us! And thanks, PL for helping out with the author names, I was a little late checking the boards today!
  4. As a writer, I can honestly say my imposter syndrome has imposter syndrome, it's so bad! But shifting out of your comfort zone can only help your writing grow. Just enjoy it and see where your creative flow takes you. I'm looking forward to reading all of them!
  5. Thank you both so much, we were cautiously optimistic but we didn't expect to sell out of the top tier so fast! We are actually looking at adding in some extra options for people who missed out, which I'll update on Twitter tomorrow - so anyone who missed out has a chance to change their selected reward if they'd like to, if we meet our target we also have some pretty cool stretch rewards planned as well! We're so thrilled with the reaction, honestly didn't think we'd get this far this fast!
  6. It’s finally here! The Anatomy of Fear Kickstarter is officially live! With some amazing reward tiers, we need your help to bring this project to life. The below are a few (pre-editing) excerpts from some of the stories that will be featured in this collection: Jacob Sannox – Liver Ashdwelyn’s beauty belied the city’s true nature. Corrupt to the core and yet, from the outside, and even on the surface once you were within the walls, a bastion of equity, accomplishment, cooperation, wealth, and virtue. Zamil Akhtar – Skin While most folks perceive skin as a nice, comforting wrapper for their flesh, I see it as something easily shed, something you might wear like a designer coat. HL Tinsley – Neck Suddenly, death has an edge that’s razor-sharp. I don’t want it if I can’t laugh at it. Lee C Conley – Eye Malc wiped the cold sweat from beneath his cap and wiped his hand on his jacket. Not a sight easily forgotten. He watched the lamp lighters move from lamp to lamp along the narrow thoroughfare, each trailing a lambent glow of a lit taper. If you like what you see so far, please consider backing us!

  7. This thread makes me sad, because I love to bake and I can't because everyone I know is on January diets. So it would just be me making 100s of cakes that will never be eaten.
  8. Interesting question and great answers. My only counterpoint to any of the above is that some people, like myself, struggle with reading novels. I've never been able to quite put my finger on why, and it's rarely anything to do with the quality of the writing or story. When it comes to fiction, there is something about my brain that just doesn't compute anything longer than 100 pages (mostly). On average, I probably complete between 3 to 5 full length novels a year (and that's through discipline), although I might start more than 30. I have experienced the looks of absolute horror and disbelief on people's faces when I tell them I am a writer who struggles to read novels. Maybe I would be a lot better writer if I could, but I can't. I like to read - I like to read biographies, studies, academic papers, poetry, non-fiction. To be fair, all of this might explain a lot about my writing haha!
  9. Thanks, Steve! I can't wait to show you all what we've been cooking up!
  10. Hi all, I know I haven't been on much since Christmas, but there is a good reason. I'm 95% finished with my latest novel and really want to get past the finish line with this one. However, I have popped by with news and to shamelessly plug the fact that The Anatomy of Fear Anthology Kickstarter now has a pre-launch page! https://tinyurl.com/4xpu89pr. Sign up to get instant notification when we go live on 22nd January! We have some amazing reward tiers, and I cannot wait for you all to get some sneak peek glimpses into these stories. With stories by Krystle Matar, Sean Crow, Zamil Akhtar, Tim Hardie, Trudie Skies...and the list goes on.... 12 authors. 12 stories. We are so excited to bring this project to life! And with that.....I must return to editing.....
  11. Thanks for posting this, PL. You've gone and made me do a blush.
  12. We've been working on this for about six months-ish (I'm honestly not sure, it could be six years, time has lost all meaning). The great thing is that everyone involved has been so on the ball and responsive. I expected it to be a lot tougher. I started with a list of authors I thought might like to be involved, around twenty names, knowing we wanted twelve but expecting a few rejections, we ended up getting an immediate yes from the first 12 we approached, so the ball was rolling within a matter of days. It's been an absolute pleasure working with everyone and I'm not just saying that!
  13. Thanks, I'm really proud of what these fine folks have put together, it's been absolute pleasure working with them!
  14. Hope you're feeling better soon, Steve! I have to go out tomorrow and (shudder) socialise. Meeting up with some old work friends. Otherwise I'm hoping to get some editing/writing done on a new project and read some more of PL Stuart's next book, which I've been lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of.
