I am super proud and excited and very happy to announce that through the wonder of twitter, likeminded writers and a guy with a dream Soul Chaser has finally achieved a first minor (yet quite major as well) milestone into the world of books and readers.
Not through the conventional dealings with agents and major publising houses but using the modern invention of E-readers and eBooks, a very generous man called Alexander Hollins has initated a collaboratvie project with many other talented writers, who display their work for all to read on their blogs and websites, to create a masterpiece of free fiction - a first I believe - eBook Anthology of Web Fiction.
April 11, 2011 marks the release of the first volume of Dreamers of Dreams: A Webfiction Anthology. This Ebook release, released simultaneously on several popular Ebook and webfiction stores, is a free book containing excerpts and opening chapters of several web fiction novels currently available for free online. The offerings of the Anthology include both completed works, and novels currently being serialized. A wide variety of genres is represented, from superhero to zombie apocalypse, urban fantasy to science fiction, folk tale to murder mystery, space opera to high fantasy. The purpose of this first installment of what promises to be a regularly released anthology series is to introduce the Ebook reader to free fiction available online that they may not be aware of, and highlight promising new writers who are taking the risks of self publishing online.
Volume one of Dreamers of Dreams will include the following authors and stories:
Ted Campbell - Flyover City!
Eva Shandor - Cold Ghost
Cassandra Stryffe - Zombie Diapers
Bex Aaron - Independence Day
J.J. Adams - The Undeadslayer
Alexander Hollins - Phoenix 2125
Rebecca Wilson - Soul Chaser
Christopher Wright - Pay Me, Bug!
Kyt Dotson - Black Hat Magick
G.L. Drummond - Midnight Intentions
Miladysa - Refuge of Delayed Souls
Meilin Miranda - Scryer's Gulch
M.E. Traylor - Guts and Sass
The anthology is created and distributed by DreamFantastic Publishing, and more information on the anthology, as well as links to the individual authors represented within, can be found at http://www.dreamfantastic.com/anthology/ . A .99 cent version of the anthology, the Author’s Support Edition, will be sold starting the end of April, and will contain additional bonus content from many of the represented authors. Any questions or concerns, as well as requests to be included in future anthology’s, should be directed to Editor@dreamfantastic.com.
