Close to Deadline

The deadline to submit stories to be considered for our next anthology, The Fall, is fast approaching (it's Friday!), and I've been pleasantly surprised by the increasing number of emails I've received -- including those from writers I didn't know previously and others I didn't know were going to submit.

I have to admit, it really is thrilling to get those emails because it means other readers have shared their thoughts on Spring Fevers and the writers have taken a look to see whether Elephant's Bookshelf Press, LLC, a place worth being published.

Although several stories have been accepted and our copy editor is working with those authors, we also have a few that are awaiting a final thumbs up or thumbs down. So please don't fret if you've not heard a definite answer on the story yet. However, if you submitted and I didn't say anything whatsoever, please resend. I respond to all submissions as soon as I see them to make sure you know we received it.

So, once again, if you're considering submitting a dystopian, apocalyptic, or post-apocalyptic story (and we've allowed some leeway on those definitions), please send it to antholsubs@gmail.com.

We've also begun preparations for the next anthology, which would be published in the summer of 2013. More on that later.
