I hope you are intrigued! Please comment below and spread the news. Some of you may remember that I have started this initiative in August of last year, and finally the magazine came to fruition. I honestly did not anticipate the amount of work it will take for producing a magazine. I mean, I knew it will be a challenge. But I did not realize that my own life will be getting in my way all the time. But enough excuses. From now on, we will be working on the quarterly schedule. Check out our submissions page if you are interested in contributing to the next issue. There is no specific deadline, we accept submissions all year round. Just follow the simple submission guidelines. Also, I encourage you to subscribe to the newsletter on the web site to receive prompt updates and submission calls.
Friends, I encourage you to support this initiative and buy the magazine because the mission of the magazine is to help up-and-coming authors and artists to be discovered. We offer 60% of net profits to the contributors, and in the future we are committed to pay upfront as well. For that we need to have a successful launch and show some promise.
I would greatly appreciate your comments about the magazine and your ideas how to improve it. Please keep in mind that this preview is optimized for print and may not be the best for digital devices, however, in print it looks fantastic.
Live long and prosper!
