By Akira Brown
We've been here before. You know what's up.
WSP is adding to the lineup of books and happenings to come.
Plastic Crown #5 - March 15th
Half-Past Pink - End of April
Submissions Opening - April 3rd
*What this blog is about* - End of May/Early June
??? - June?
Newest Anthology - July (with a name drop in June)
You've already heard about the first two, and we're going to keep this in order. So! Let's dive into the NEXT sneak peek after Half-Past Pink!:
I Took the Right Bus but, Somehow I Ended up in the Demon World! (by Kathleen Catwell)
A tribute to Isekai Manga and a YA OGN, it follows the main character Iris, who's ready for her college vacation. However instead of leaving and heading home, she ends up in a precarious situation and finds herself having to team up with a demon and fight her way out of the demon world to get back home. Who knew falling asleep on the bus had so many consequences that followed!?
Demons, deals, and time running out. I Took the Right Bus but, Somehow I Ended up in the Demon World! has it all and more just for you in this wild adventure!
And a sneak peek at the first chapter below:
March is when Plastic Crown #5 comes out! April is when Half-Past Pink comes out! May (or early June) is when Right Bust comes out!
Don't miss out on any of them!
Some of you are here looking for info about pitching to WildStar Press and I appreciate that you want to be apart of this indie publisher I've created. It means a lot! With that being said, submissions will be opening the beginning of April and ending the first week of June.
(Do not send any submissions before or after this! The status will be put on the submissions page!)
Priority will go to Creators of Color & LGBTQ+ creators. It's one of the running themes of the press, right on the front page. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.
There have been a lot of horror/thriller titles to be produced from WS Press so that genre won't be prioritized for the sake of diversifying the books we get in.
Though the submission period will span over 2ish months, acceptance and rejection may fall in the beginning of June, depending on the volume of submissions. Please be patient! There's only one person going through these titles!
Read over the submissions requirements carefully! If you don't provide everything requested your email may just be deleted.
Do not send any pitch submissions before it's been announced that submission requests are officially opened. Those will be deleted as well.
Can't wait to see what you guys bring!
There's more announcements to come so stay tuned and I hope you're as excited about all of the new endeavors as I am to share them with you!
For now, see you in the stars 🌟
