Autumn and everything after

Things are quiet at Wyldblood HQ today with only the sound of the rain and falling leaves to disturb us. Which gives us space to scheme and plot and plan. We’ve got new Flash coming up on Friday, but in the meantime there’s still Michelle Muenzler’s unsettling Neither Sleeping, Nor Alive, Nor Dead to enjoy.Continue reading “Autumn and everything after”

We’ve made our choices!

We’ve spent an agonising weekend deciding which stories will appear in the first Wyldblood Magazine – and we’ve made our choices! We haven’t broken the news to the authors yet (or to the people we’ve shortlisted but had to sadly decline) but that’s coming – and soon! We’re still open for werewolves and flash butContinue reading “We’ve made our choices!”

not just science fiction and fantasy

Sunday is review day here at Wyldblood, where we sweat over the stories we’ll be accepting (and anguish over some of the excellent ones we’re going to have to turn away).

Thank you, writers

Thank you for the million-plus words of short stories you’ve sent us since we launched in late July. That’s astounding, and I’m pleased to say we’ve unovered some real gems that I can’t wait to share with you. Although we’re now closed for short story submissions, we’re still open for flash fiction, despite Duotrope sayingContinue reading “Thank you, writers”

Short story submissions close on Monday

We’re temporarily closing for short story submissions at midnight on Monday 14th September (EDT – that’s 8 am Tuesday in the UK). That’s because we have more than enough great ones for a while and we need to catch our breath. We’ll be open again in December but if you can’t wait that long getContinue reading “Short story submissions close on Monday”

Werewolves and monsters

We’re gearing up to put some books out. We’re working through some of the fabulous proposals we’ve received, though inevitably it will be a while before we can share them with you. In the meantime, we’ll be putting out some classic fiction – some stand alone novels, some newly curated collections – and (announcement) puttingContinue reading “Werewolves and monsters”
