I have just sent out a submission to the Story Quest Short Story contest and look forward to hearing from you, whether that be positive or negative :D

Thanks for the oppurtunity, Gerry.

I just hope I didn't make some submission mistake like I did last time!

Very soon, days rather than weeks. We deliberately delayed the production for two purposes: firstly, for the print version we found out that there was considerable economy of scale and we wanted readers to get value for money, so we collected a higher number of quality short stories to make the product larger. Secondly, we decided to release it on Kindle at the same time, which requires very different formatting processes. We are about a month late, but it is worth the wait.  ;D

Is this the magazine we are talking about? I assumed it was only going to be online. Wonderful to hear it is in print also!

PS

You are a qucik replier. Just as I clicked onto my inbox I got a notification of your reply!

Sheer luck I had my gmail account on the ready. Yeah, we are serious about our magazine. It will be print and Kindle only (may, just maybe, Nook). It will be quite costly for print (no choice, given nature of printing) but the Kindle will be a good price - and the Kindle for PC is free. We have a tricky challenge for edition 2, where we will have a special edition where slightly less than half of the mag will be a graphic novel - just doesn't work for kindle - we are thinking of setting up a free pdf of that for each Kindle purchase. :)

Sounds very good indeed. I like the idea of a graphic novel.

PS

How would I go about ordering a print version to be delivered to the UK? I do not like reading from ebooks so am more than willing to pay for a printed copy.

when it's available, it will be able to be ordered via Amazon or through our website. I will post as soon as it is available :) It will be expensive with postage, but you do have the online to fall back on (albeit not liking it).

It will be worth it, I suppose, to have one of my stories in print form :) Cheers Gerry.

SQ Magazine about to be published. Print, as well as Kindle.

We have already got a good selection of submissions for Edition #2, but we are happy indeed for more submissions! http://ifwgpublishing.weebly.com/sq-magazine.html

Also, don't forget our Story Quest contest. The last winner is having a spectacular anthology published in November 2010. For entry: http://ifwgpublishing.weebly.com/story-quest-contest.html

And of course, we are interested in new manuscripts: www.ifwgpublishing.com (but be warned - due to a lot of good material coming in, we will not be accepting submissions from 1 Oct 2010 to 31 Jan 2011. A nice place to be.

NEWSFLASH!

IFWG Publishing has received so many submissions, that we are actually booked out until Q2 next year for publishing new titles and marketing them. This is good for us, believe me, but perhaps not for authors who want to publish with us immediately.

We are locking down manuscript submissions from 1 September 2010 to 31 March 2011.

This does not mean we don't accept submissions for our Story Quest Contest, nor SQ Magazine, which is out this weekend.

regards

Gerry
