Preparing for the Apocalypse

Summer is essentially over. The kids are back in school. Temperatures are dropping, little by little. The skies are darkening earlier. Leaves are falling on the grass.

And here at the Elephant's Bookshelf, we've been busy in the background getting an anthology ready as well as a Web site for Elephant's Bookshelf Press. I won't guarantee the site will be ready by launch date, but that's definitely my target. This blog will continue to exist and be a major component of the site, which will also offer information on the next anthologies in the works and future submissions for anthologies and longer works. Yes, "elephans," we intend to publish novels. Maybe as soon as 2013.

In the meantime, I intend to make some updates to what we do here on the blog. Coming soon, for example, are more interviews with authors, editors, filmmakers, publishers, even some poets! I hope to make the Elephant's Bookshelf a regular blog tourist area for authors who want to promote their work. If some of you would like to write reviews of upcoming or newly released books (or even offer a new spin on your old favorites), please let me know.

As I prepare EBP for the fall (and The Fall) feel free to share some comments about what else you might like to see here and on the new site. You can leave a comment here or send me an email at, which for now is the official email of EBP, but that should be changing soon too.

Your anthologies have piqued my interest in shorts - I tried out a few for this latest one, but I wasn't happy enough with them. Maybe for the next! :)

Great to hear, Jemi, thanks! I'll definitely let you know when we're ready to accept submissions.
