StoryBundle is taking Horror submissions

Long time lurker, first time poster here.

My name is Martin Kee and I am curating a Horror Bundle through, released through StoryBundle sometime late spring/early summer 2014. We are still open for a few additions to the mix. If anyone knows/is a talented horror or dark fantasy author who might be interested, send them over to http://storybundle.com/author_faq And have them take a look.

We'll consider both author-published and traditionally-published books and anthologies, so if you're an indie author, it's a great way to get your work seen.

There's no hard deadline for this bundle, but we'd like to have everything locked in by March 31st.

Darth Maul gets sent to prison in this Star Wars novel that even non-Star Wars fans can appreciate! The story, while set in the Star Wars universe, really is very un-Star Wars-like.

Recovering

My new post on my blog, The Ingesterie, talks about recovering from my broken shoulder, as well as the progress I'm making on my WIP, Quiet Post. It promises to be different from my usual sort of book.

Plain Text to ePub: How to Panic Less about eBook Formats

Hi folks. Today I wrote my outline for a talk I hope to give at a writers' convention coming up this fall. The outline came out as a series of questions, so I decided to answer them all and put the write-up on my blog.

If you are new to ebook formats, this post might help you to decipher some of the basics of publishing for digital media. Good luck!

Plain Text to ePub: How to Panic Less about eBook Formats

Here's the synopsis:
Quote:
While much of the world has moved to digital media, many writing tools
still encourage us to write in ways more suited to print media. In this
presentation, Case Talbot, a Smashwords engineer, will present an
introduction to understanding the nuts and bolts of how digital media
formats such as PDF and ePub really work. With this knowledge, authors
will be empowered to make informed decisions about their writing flow
that will save them time (and sanity) while granting readers a better
experience than ever.

Small update.
Almost one year after launching the project, our team converted and revised 18 books:

Eurico o Presbíbero, by Alexandre Herculano
Livro de Soror Saudade, by Florbela Espanca
O Banqueiro Anarquista, by Fernando Pessoa
Charneca em Flor, by Florbela Espanca
A Ilustre Casa de Ramires, by Eça de Queirós
O Livro de Cesário Verde, by Cesário Verde
Mensagem, by Fernando Pessoa
A Confissão de Lúcio, by Mário de Sá-Carneiro
Singularidades de uma Rapariga Loura, by Eça de Queirós
O Defunto, by Eça de Queirós
A Queda dum Anjo, by Camilo Castelo Branco
O Mistério da Estrada de Sintra, by Eça de Queirós and Ramalho Ortigão
Dom Casmurro, by Machado de Assis
Folhas Caídas, by Almeida Garrett
Loucura..., by Mário de Sá-Carneiro
Poesias Dispersas, by Guerra Junqueiro
A Escrava Isaura, by Bernard Guimarães
As Minas de Salomão, by H. Rider Haggard

You can download any of this titles for free here. Every eBook is also available at Kobobooks, Scribd and Google Play Books.

The project is growing, but we are always in need of help. If you are interested in portuguese literature, and would like to give us a hand (revision, conversion, etc.), just send an email to geral@projectoadamastor.org for more information.

If you have any suggestions, you can reply here, and I'll answer as soon as possible. Reader's feedback is important for us to improve.

Hello, everyone! I run a blog devoted to the End Of The World (I would put it in all caps but people might start thinking the apocalypse is here).

The blog is called After The Last Day and I review apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction as well as cover Doomsday scenarios (the most recent being Ragnarok).

The most recent reviews I've done are for Joseph D'Lacey's The Black Dawn series, and tomorrow will be adding a guest post from the author himself, detailing how he'd survive the apocalypse. Coming soon are reviews for The End Is Nigh (anthology) and Morningside Fall amongst others.

I'd love for you to take a look at the creation of my alter-ego Captain Doomsday. The blog site is http://afterthelastday.com

Thanks for reading!

I'm not tremendously well-read in this particular genre, but one of my favorite novels in it is George R. Stewart's Earth Abides, written many decades ago. It struck me as a very human book. I did a book of my own called Caravan, but I admit it's a minor effort.
