#Shadows of the Mind
Today marked the second day of ACC. There were a lot more cosplayers than yesterday which meant our residential picture fairy, LJ got to run around capturing even more great costumes, and even posing for a few herself. We got to meet some great people, sell more books, and even had a few laughs. LJ assisted our friends Kevin and Sarah Jo Coryell with their panel on fanfiction and afterwards we stayed for our favorite: The Ultimate Occult Showdown hosted by our friends Kevin Ranson and Brett Link of MovieCrypt.com. If you ever have an opportunity to attend this particular panel at a con they are at we highly recommend it. It’s nonstop laughs as the audience debates on who makes a better________. Our favorite for tonight’s was “Who is a better faery?” Sookie from True Blood or Maleficent from the movie Maleficent.
Be sure to check out our pictures from today at our Facebook page! Only one more day left to go!
Today was the first day of this year’s ACC! We spent the majority of the day manning our booth, selling books, reuniting with past friends and making new ones. We also saw a lot of amazing costumes. It was quite and enjoyable and productive first day. Be sure to visit our Facebook page if you want to check out the pictures we took. We will have more available for your viewing pleasure. Remember, if you mention you saw us online you’ll receive a discount on your purchase!
We are counting down to Ancient City Convention 2014! It’s a three day long multi-genre fandom convention at the Hyatt Regency Riverside in Jacksonville, Florida the 18th-20th. We will be there to sell our books, including our new releases, and will even have a special guest with us! So be sure to stop by and say you saw our post on our site/Facebook/Twitter and we’ll give you a discount!
For more information please be sure to visit ACC’s site. Looking Forward to seeing you and all our friends there!
A big thank you to everyone who had submitted a short story to us. We’ve seen many truly exceptional entries! Any last minute submissions received prior to the closing at 11:59pm EST last night will be reviewed over the next few days. If you wished you could have submitted something but didn’t have enough time, don’t worry. We will be announcing open submissions for a new anthology shortly after Shadows of the Mind has been published so keep an eye out!
We’re gearing up to finish work on our anthology project, Shadows of the Mind. At the same time, I’ll be starting publication preparations for Descent Into Darkness: His Command, the fourth installment of the series. August and September are going extremely busy for us at Trinity Gateways, and me in particular, so story updates may be delayed in the coming weeks. Check our update schedule for any alterations in our posting dates.
Trinity Gateways Submissions Closes 11:59pm EST, August 1, 2012
Just a reminder, all submissions for the Shadows of the Mind horror anthology must be in before midnight this coming Wednesday, August 1. Please don’t rush when sending us your stories; double-check the guidelines for formatting and submitting before emailing it to us to ensure that your entry will be considered when it is received. Our editing team has been seeing a lot of entries that have not followed our guidelines, which is problematic for us. We want to consider your work so please read through everything on the Trinity Gateways Submissions Page. If you need clarification on anything we require, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Question” in the subject line.
The Rough Draft Will Be Pulled In September
Descent Into Darkness: His Command will be pulled off the site in the first week of September as I begin the editing/revision phase. From that point on, only the sample chapters for this story will be up. His Command will be released as an e-book on October 28, 2012. I’ll upload the cover art for it as soon as it has been completed, which will probably be in late September.
Is going to be very busy, as previously stated. At this time, I don’t have any online updates planned for this month, but will add things to the schedule as my project deadlines allow and things pop up. When story updates resume, I will let you know.
In the meantime, I need to get back to reviewing submissions. Until next time!
