October certainly was a busy month! We hope you all enjoyed the content throughout Furry Book Month, and that you have been able to find a few new favourite authors and stories to enjoy. If you missed anything during the month, we have our recap here.
Otherwise, this will only be a short newsletter, but if you think we have missed something important, do let us know!
In addition to Furry Book Month, the news broke last month that Fenris Publishing has acquired Rabbit Valley Comics. We’re looking forward to how the Rabbit Valley name moves forward into this new future for them, and have every faith in Fenris Publishing to keep that history intact.
For some people, November means NaNoWriMo. Good luck to everyone attempting the 50,000 words this month. If you have other targets that better suit your writing habits, then we hope you are successful in them all.
Of course, not everyone is looking for a novel in a month. Instead, they’re after some short stories. Thankfully, we have some open markets to aim for!
- Pirating Pups – Deadline November 30th
- FURWARD SLASH: A Furry Adult Techno-Horror Anthology – Deadline November 30th
- Felis Futura – Deadline December 31st
- Isekai Me! – Deadline When Full
- Children Of The Night – Deadline When Full
- #ohmurr! – Deadline: Ongoing
- Zooscape – Reoccurring submission period.
If instead you’d like to spend the month reading instead of writing, then we have some newly released books and pre-orders from some of our members to check out.

For one final time, thank you to everyone who contributed to Furry Book Month and Oxfurred Comma, as well as those who supported us by reading the Q&As and attending the panels. Without the furry writing community, there would be no purpose to the Furry Writers Guild.
Enjoy NaNoWriMo if you’re attempting it.
Stay safe. Keep writing!
