We’ve done updates in the past, but I’d like to start making them a regular monthly thing, so you can keep up with all things Mirror World. Here’s where we’re at with all of our current and upcoming projects:
Far, Far Away: 7 Stories in 7 Realms of Science Fiction and Fantasy
The anthology is currently available for pre-order and will officially launch 06/17/2021. Join us next week at 5pm on Thursday on our Facebook Page for a live video where we talk about the book, the fantastic stories and authors included and the journey it took to make it. We’ll also be offering a discount code you can use to purchase your copy, either as an ebook or paperback, so you won’t want to miss that.
Lands of Jade by J.A. Dowsett
The re-launch of Lands of Jade, Vol. 2 of the Crimson Winter trilogy might be delayed slightly as the edits are taking longer than anticipated. This sequel is on its way, however, and I will keep you posted on its progress.
The Last Timekeepers and the Noble Slave by Sharon Ledwith
This next installment in this YA time travel series is on track to launch in September. The manuscript is currently in Sharon’s hands as she works on the edits and I’m working on the cover design.
Tabitha Won’t Sleep and Sloth the Lazy Dragon
We’ve got two children’s picture books coming up soon. Tabitha Won’t Sleep is written by David McLain and illustrated by Felix Eddy, and Sloth the Lazy Dragon is written by Regan W.H. Macaulay and illustrated by Alex Zgud. Both of these books are going through their first rounds of edits this month.
Submissions and Contest Dates
And last, but not least, the information all of you authors out there are no doubt waiting for; we will be opening our general submission period early this year, beginning October 1st, running until Dec 15th. During that time we’ll be looking for manuscripts that fit our brand of escapism fiction, specifically those with original settings and character driven plots. Please see our submission page for more details.
As far as contests go, it’s official, we’ll be running another anthology contest in 2022. If you’re curious about the theme so you can get writing, come and watch our Facebook Live video 06/17 at 5pm celebrating the launch of the Far, FAr Away Anthology to learn more!
