Calls for Submissions / The Jackal Who Came in From the Cold (deadline March 2018)
« Last post by Rolnikov on January 31, 2018, 10:39:38 am »
Anthology from Fox Spirit, crossing furries with spy stories. Will open for submissions during March.

Quote
The anthology has a spy story theme, and we will consider stories written in most genres as long as they contain a spy story. They do not need to include a Jackal. The stories in this anthology should be Furry. This means we are looking for anthropomorphised animal characters, people with extremely animalistic characteristics and the range in between.

Payment: £15 plus a print copy of the book.

I do recommend it to members, by the way. I really enjoyed the experience of being on the comics jury last year, plus, if BFS members volunteer, it means BFS members will still be involved in deciding the awards, even if we don't vote for them directly.

I saw -- in an email I think, which I no longer have -- a request for jurors for the 2018 awards. Can't find any info about this on the BFS website, so am I imagining things? If not have all juries been selected?

Thanks Rolnikov,
will have a look. We've contacted a fair number of printers already and either had no response or that they don't work to that kind of scale. It's driving us nuts lol as I can't start on any of the final pieces until that's organised. On the other hand, I am amassing a very gratifying pile of reference material ready to go...

Cheers,
Karen

Most of the books I've worked on lately are text-only, so I don't have any suggestions from personal experience. You've probably thought of this already, but you could do worse than looking on the copyright page of a small press book you like and seeing who printed it. A couple of recent PS Publishing books say they were printed and bound by T.J. International, so maybe they'd be worth a look: https://www.tjinternational.ltd.uk/services/printing/

General Discussion / Looking for recommendations on art book printing

Hi folks,
I'm working on an illustrated anthology with an American author. We're planning to release a standard paperback size edition but would like to also have the option of a larger format to show off the artwork, fancier paper etc, up to double the size. I was wondering if anyone here had good experiences with a particular company ? The book will feature at least 24 full page illustrations plus page decorations etc, all in black and white as I specialise in charcoal work. I'd like to get some quotes before completing final versions of the drawings to be I'm sure of my maximum page dimensions, so would be very grateful for any suggestions.

Cheers,
Karen

Ask the Authors and Artists! / One More Kill ready for pre-order
« Last post by hapthorn on January 19, 2018, 03:34:00 pm »
This is non-sff news, but what the hey.

My suspense novel, One More Kill, is now available for pre-order from PS Publishing as a £20 hardcover. There is also a signed, limited (100 copies) edition for £35. An ebook will follow in the next few weeks.

The novel is an extrapolation of a short story by the same title that won me the Arthur Ellis Award (the "Canadian Edgar) from the Crime Writers of Canada several years ago. At the beginning of next month, I will put up the original story as a free read for those on the mailing list for my monthly newsletter. If you're not on the list and would like to read it, you can sign up from my web page.

I don't usually blow my own horn, but I think the novel is some pretty spiffy storytelling.
