We had one new member join the FWG in March, and one associate member. Welcome to Blarginator, and to Adam Kellogg of Taomerle Publishing Association! If you’d like more information about joining, read our membership guidelines.
Miriam “Camio” Curzon, TJ Minde, Jaden Drackus, and Skunkbomb have had stories accepted into Fang 8. Jaden’s story “Prelude to Adventure” also appears in the Fur The More program book.
TJ Minde, Mary E. Lowd, and Madison Keller will appear in the Arcana tarot anthology edited by Madison “Makyo” Scott-Clary. In addition, Madison had a story accepted into Roar 8, and Mary’s story “Missing: Friendly Spook” appeared in the April issue of Fantasia Divinity.
Allison “Sibir” Thai also has a story forthcoming in Roar 8, as well as in Symbol of a Nation and Werewolves vs. Fascism.
Kris Schnee’s novel Thousand Tales: Learning to Fly is now available from Amazon.
CopperSphinx’s poem and illustration will appear in Furlandia 2017’s convention book.
Sean Rivercritic was interviewed by the “South Afrifur Pawdcast” (link goes to audio on YouTube).
If you’d like to be listed here, please post your sales/publications to the Member News section of the FWG Forum! It’s the primary source for these news bits.
There are no new furry-specific markets that we’re aware of that opened in April (although there’s at least one that’s opening in May: check the forum thread linked below). We update the listings on the web site fairly frequently, so check to see what is (and isn’t) listed there:
Also, Thurston Howl maintains a Google Calendar with submission opening and closings for both furry and “furry-friendly” anthologies.
Remember to keep an eye on the Calls for Submissions thread on the forum, as well as other posts on the Publishing and Marketing forum.
Odds and ends
It’s election season! The FWG election is underway, slightly late but on schedule to wrap up on time. Currently, there’s one candidate declared for president (Makyo) and one for VP (Chipotle, the current president). The declaration period runs through the end of this week, May 12th. Check the forums and Twitters for more information.
Thanks to Sean Rivercritic of Anthroaquatic (and a past FWG president and current forum administrator), the FWG now has a forum dedicated to offering Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of member works.
The Tuesday Coffeehouse Chats continue to take place on the FWG Slack channel, while the Thursday chats continue to take place on the shoutbox.
As usual, we’d like to keep recruiting you to the FWG Goodreads group: add things to our members’ bookshelf (see the instructions here on how to do that), start conversations, draw rabbit ears on other authors’ head shots, and so on.
Have a terrific month! Send news, suggestions, feedback, and Zootopia emoji to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment below.
