Submissions from the second half of our reading period may not have gotten an auto response from us. Apologies–circumstances kept both of us out of the virtual office for about a month, suddenly and very unexpectedly. (And unpleasantly, to be honest.) As a result, the publishing schedule has also been pushed back yet again. Alas, it’s just been one of those years, and a tiny operation like this can’t really recover from heavy punches like the pros. We’re not even close to giving up, though.
We’re catching up this week, but please feel free to email and enquire if you’re worried yours got lost in the shuffle.
Don’t forget, this is the last week to get in your submissions for our summer reading period! Replies will start going out this week–thanks to everyone who already sent us all these brilliant stories.
Check out the submissions page here for details, and we’ll see you there.
Hello from the RPP office. A couple of fun things going on right now, so let’s get right down to it…
1. Our next publication will be a serial called The Book at Dernier by Samantha Lienhard. This is a fabulous little horror story set in a small, suspicious town with a rough past. Historians, dark rituals, local lore, symbols carved into various body parts–oh, you’ll love it.
You can look up Samantha on facebook or at her blog in the meantime. We’re just waiting to polish things off and achieve cover perfection for this.
2. Soon after, we’ll have a summer issue! Slightly late, since our schedule still isn’t quite back to normal after the hiatus, but totally worth the wait.
3. You may have noticed: we’re open for short fiction submissions! We’re not accepting serial subs right now, but definitely give us all your shorts. John and I have already begun digging in.
Back soon with the creepy and lovely Book at Dernier.
You know what makes for a great Memorial Day wind-down (for those of you celebrating–and for those of you not, hey, Happy Monday!)?
The final episode of God on High or the Devil Below by Jeffrey Wooten. That’s right, it’s here, and it’s finished. Click here for the last episode, or click here for the table of contents–not to mention Tim Stewart’s amazing cover in all its glory.
Stay tuned for the eBook version and more RPP announcements as we leave May behind and enter into a seriously pulpy summer full throttle.
Last Friday, things were just getting really weird for Carl with his new roommate, Bran. In fact, we left them in one of the weirdest situations imaginable. There’s clearly something disturbing going on at Sunny Grove Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is all I’m saying. At least, in that room, there is.
Today we get to find out what… sort of. Head on over to Episode 2 of our new serial, God on High or the Devil Below by Jeffrey Wooten. Or head to the table of contents to admire Timothy D. Stewarts gorgeous cover art, and maybe start from Episode 1, if you missed it last week!
Perfect pulpy weekend reading, right here. You know it’s what we aim for.
Isn’t it time you left the worry to us? –Print ad for Sunny Grove Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Carl Weathers is living out the end of his life at Sunny Grove, suspecting that if the staff taking blood and stuffing him full of meds all the time doesn’t kill him, the boredom will. But then he gets a new roommate, Bran, who defies age–even death itself, and has a strange enough story to liven anyone up. At a price.
A three-part serial by Jeffrey Wooten, with cover art by Timothy D. Stewart. Click the cover or right here to go to the table of contents and begin with today’s episode!
Quick signal boost for 2-time Red Penny Papers alum (and the only one to do it as both an artist and author!), Carrie Cuinn:
Will Trade Words for Money
Great stuff up for grabs here, including some fabulous short fiction and Dagan Books offerings, both of which are certainly objects of interest for the RPP reader. Plus there’s the satisfaction of helping out one of our own.
Back on Friday with Episode 1 of God on High…
See you then!
