Welcome to our (approximately) monthly newsletter. To tell the truth, it probably won't exactly be like clockwork, but we will do our best to get them out at semi-regular intervals.
We've been inundated with novel submissions, to the point where we've had to temporarily close them while we try to catch up on reading the manuscripts. It's pretty exciting that we've gotten that much attention so quickly. So thanks to everyone who submitted, and double thanks for your patience as we wend our way through your worlds.
"Twelve Days" is well on track for a Christmas publication. As I write this, we are only one story away from a full complement. We're still missing "6 Geese a-Laying" so those of you who are writers and not yet in the book, it would be awesome if you could turn your pens and keyboards to that and send us something amazing. See our submissions page for more information.
In the meantime, Will is working away on the illustrations and design for the book and Jax is already elbow deep in editing it. We're looking forward to this inaugural anthology being something really very special.
BUILDING A BACKLIST AND NEW PROJECTS
Jax is also working on revising and re-releasing a couple of her books from her time at Solarwyrm. These will become part of the Raven backlist. We also have a couple of new projects in the works for which we will be opening submissions soon.
So it's all go at the Rookery! We're so thrilled at how many of you have been hopping onto our social media pages and interacting with us. For a fledgling (hah! see what I did there?) publisher, it's astonishing to have this much support before we even release our first book. A very, very heartfelt thank you.
Jax & Will
