August 18th Happenings

Good grief! Let a bit of time go by, didn't I? Oh well, here is what is going on:

August 14th signing in Jackson, TN was a success - and there is a possibility of a repeat in December. Look for it on the I-site! The first issue of IMAGYRO has been printed and is available in limited numbers. Unfortunately, the online version is taking a bit longer - we are having trouble with the format. Will have it uploaded as soon as possible - thank you for your patience.

Papercut Books is looking for submissions for a sequel to their Lovecraftian anthology.

SamsDotCom Publishing wants submissions for its title called It Came From Her Purse!

The Fine Arts Center in Hot Springs, AR is accepting artist submissions.

Also, be sure to check in every Thursday at Dragon Talk Radio for a new guest - this week is Author Jonathan Rudder of LOTR Online and the Milhavior Chronicles!

Do not forget Missa's Blog Radio on Sundays as well!
