Libram Mysterium Update


I thought I would do an update on what is going on with Pulp Mill Press.  We've decided that Sean Robson would take over the reins of editor since he was already slashing away with his editor's blue pencil and doing an incredible job. 

The other news is we have our first batch of accepted stories.  If I am counting correctly we have four or five stories.  This is very good news.  To those on the fence, please give it a go.  All we ask is read the guidelines so when you submit your story we can enjoy reading it and not waste time reformatting.  There is still plenty of time to get you story in.  We are half way through our first month and still have another 45 days to go.  So start cranking out some fun fiction.

Another piece of information the group discussed was payment.  Things always get a little weird when money is involved.  Right now we are offering electronic copies of the book.  Why just this?  We are starting off with no money in this project and hope to build it.  And we didn't want to make a promise we couldn't keep.  This ain't your little brother's bogus Kickstarter.  After a very short discussion, because we all agreed, once we begin making sales we will figure out a payment for your stories.  Even if its only pizza and beer money we wanted to pay the people who have worked hard to make this book come alive.  Can I tell you how much it will be?  Nope.  Couldn't even guess.  We don't even have a book yet.

And lastly, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at pulpmillpress4@gmail.com.  It's been interesting reading the stories and I'm looking forward to reading others as they come in.
