Congratulations again on your acceptance to Trust & Treachery! We’re excited to have such a talented author as a part of this anthology. Our apologies for the delay in following up with you. You should hear from Meriah soon on the changes you made. However, rather than wait and then have to send you even more emails, I thought it best to get this out of the way in a single missive. Attached you should find two documents:
1. Is our T&T Interview Questions. It is our intention to publish individualized posts for each author over the next few weeks. We would appreciate it if you would send us additional information to include such as an expanded bio, photos, website URLs, Twitter accounts, or Facebook links. It is a great opportunity to highlight your achievements and also give people a taste of what’s to come. We are also attaching a selection of questions for you to answer that we thought would offer readers some additional insight.
2. Is our Trust & Treachery Contract. Obviously, there’s still a lot to do moving forward to the next phase – edits. However, right now, we’re asking authors to please sign and return the contract to the address listed within the contract.
A signed and scanned document submitted electronically to TreacheryAntho@gmail.com is satisfactory in lieu of a printed document. Please let us know your preferred method of payment and where to send it so we can forward payment as soon as possible. We can either send it via PayPal or a physical cheque in the mail.
Thanks again for being a part of our anthology!
Editor, Trust & Treachery
Yeah, so that’s pretty much FUCKING A I FINALLY GOT SOMETHING PUBLISHED!!!
Okay, it ain’t published yet but let me tell you something folks: 8 years.
In 2004 I sat down to write a story about a spaceship. It was the first thing I’d written since 1996 when I realized I could give a shit about the mainstream fiction I was writing. It was hard going for a long time as I struggled to do something with a set of muscles severely atrophied by disuse. But by and by those muscles stretched, broke, and grew stronger.
Now it’s 2012 and I’ve got 3 novels written, two more underway and a whole slew of short stories as well.
It’s a good day to be alive.
I hope you’re doing what you love. If not, you may want to ask yourself why not then go ahead and do it anyway.
