Updates from editor K.R. Wieland
We have some new things coming up for you soon, from books to events to Kickstarters to anthologies. We hope you’ll be excited for these things as we are. I am ecstatic to inform you all that Revelations: The Ancient Ones III is available for preorder! If you haven’t yet read The Ancient Ones or Liminality, don’t worry, you still have time. And better yet, the paperbacks are currently on sale on our website for only $10. If you have read the previous books in the trilogy, I can only imagine you are eagerly awaiting the conclusion to this fantastic trilogy by Cassandra L. Thompson.
The Crow’s Quill, our online literary magazine, has a Kickstarter which will be starting very soon. The magazine is, and always has been, a work of love for us. We want to make sure all the dark poetry and short macabre fiction are free to read for all. We also hope to also increase pay for our writers and the volunteers who work so hard to get our magazine out to you each month. On Monday, you’ll get your first look at the rewards available. Now, maybe you’ll get to own digital or physical copies of the entire Quill & Crow library. Maybe you’ll get special mag merchandise. Maaaybe you’ll even get valuable feedback on your own fiction pieces. I don’t know, but I do know you should head to our Kickstarter page and sign up to be notified. This is not a commitment to pledge, though we’d love if you did when the time comes! In the meantime, send us more stories for our upcoming themes.
There are just a few days left to submit your horrific tales of winter to our Bleak Midwinter submissions call. After that, we’ll be watching for your stories of dark wizardry for Rituals & Grimoires on October 1st. There was another announcement about the anthologies we will be accepting stories for in 2023. For more information on these submission calls and their deadlines/guidelines, please see our submissions page.
Recently there was a little sneak peek of something coming in October: we may be having a Costumes & Crows event. If this intrigues you, be sure to keep your eyes on our posts as more information will be coming soon!
Much love from my Little Black Heart,
