#FaeVisions release
« Reply #61 on: May 02, 2016, 06:12:50 pm »
Fae Visions of the Mediterranean: An Anthology of Horrors and Wonders of the Sea, edited by Valeria Vitale and released by Futurefire.net Publishing, is now on sale in print and e-book from all online bookstores.

The TFF Press blog will be hosting a series of author interviews, guest posts, teaser images, and other fun content through May. I'll post occasional updates here too, in case you don't subscribe (but if you want to, you can sign up for emails from the sidebar). Today's post is an interview with Croatian author Vladimira Becić, author of “Kod Kose i Sata”—translated as “The Scythe and the Hourglass” and published here in both Croatian and English versions. Check out her questions and answers at http://press.futurefire.net/2016/05/interview-with-vladimira-becic.html.

One of the authors in Fae Visions of the Mediterranean, Mattia Ravasi (“The Miracle Town”) has posted in the #FaeVisions campaign series a short video reviewing his top 5 novels with a Mediterranean setting.

Any other recommendations for (especially fantasy or horror) novels set around or on the Mediterranean?

« Reply #65 on: May 27, 2016, 10:54:26 pm »
If anyone is wondering what all the fuss is about and fancies a free copy of the Fae Visions of the Mediterranean anthology of horrors and wonders of the sea, we're running a social media random giveaway. Simply post on Twitter or Facebook a short comment or image about the Mediterranean Sea (something fantastic, horrific, dreamy, weird, fun, or whatever) and include the hashtag #FaeVisions in the post. Every ten people who take part between now and May 31st we'll give away one e-book of the anthology to a randomly selected player. If more people play, we'll start giving away paperback copies too.

Full rules and regs at http://press.futurefire.net/2016/05/faevisions-giveaway.html

The last few stops in the Fae Visions of the Mediterranean blog tour coming up! The carnivale ends today, although if anyone would like to hear more about the anthology, interview any of the authors or editors, or see a review copy, do give me a shout.


(Bold items are not on the TFF blog.)

There's still a few hours left to enter the Twitter/Facebook giveaway… if a few more people enter tonight, we'll give away a paperback copy as well as the e-books.

Are you in London?

Just nudging again to re-invite any BFS types or other friends to the Fae Visions of the Mediterranean book release party, next Wednesday (June 22) at 6pm, in the Plough (opposite the British Museum, central London). I know at least a couple of people from these forums will be there, and it would be lovely to put a few more faces to names if anyone else is around.


If you feel like it, RSVP to https://www.facebook.com/events/1347595131922795/ if you think you might join us. Or just come along on a whim. :)

Today on the TFF Press blog we run an interview with Bart Leib and Kay T. Holt, co-publishers of the acclaimed Long Hidden anthology, who are currently running a Kickstarter to publish the follow-up anthology, Hidden Youth: Speculative stories of marginalized children. Bart and Kay talked about the anthologies, the fundraiser, childhood, and the future of the Crossed Genres publishing house.

http://press.futurefire.net/2016/06/interview-with-bart-kay-from-crossed.html

While you're there, consider backing the project and getting yourself a copy of the antho. It'll be well worth it, I guarantee…

TFF micro-interviews
« Reply #70 on: June 25, 2016, 04:47:03 pm »
We've been running micro-interviews with the authors and artists from issue #36 over on the TFF Facebook page the last couple weeks. We asked 2–3 questions each of Chris Cartwright, Anna Sykora, Michael Díaz Feito, Pear Nuallak, A.J. Fitzwater, and more to come!

(I like the format of these short interviews. Still in two minds as to whether FB is the best place to run them though. Thoughts?)

Probably the last of the mini-interviews for #37: assistant editor and in-house illustrator Cécile Matthey talks about seals, sea cucumbers and whales (not sure how this became a totally marine-themed interview!).
