Submissions, Titles, and New Volumes
by Akira Brown
Like it was said in the last blog: We've got books coming out in the first half of the year, we've got submissions coming up late spring, and we've got an anthology that will be name dropped arroouund end of June (casual reminder that this place is run by one person).
But let's do this in order, if you want those other updates and announcements you've gotta keep coming back to the newsletters and blogs. So! Let's dive into the NEXT sneak peek after Plastic Crown (debuting in March, don't forget!):
Half-Past Pink! (by Hannah Smith)
Dee, formerly known as Unit no. 78, rips out the order processing unit of her positronic brain. She escapes into the desert where she befriends mutant auto-mechanic Tara and inadvertently helps him break up with his abusive boyfriend Joryuck. With the help of Tara and his new boyfriend Lyle, Dee is able to build an identity for herself beyond her programming. Throughout her journey, Dee's growth is hindered by anti-bot groups (some antagonized by Joyruck) as well as her own creator, Boss Pink, who will stop at nothing to destroy Dee for her insubordination.
The color pink, androids, friendships, and fights! Half-Past Pink has it all for you here in this fun romp of an adventure!
And a sneak peek at some of the pages:
March is when Plastic Crown #5 comes out! APRIL is when Half-Past Pink comes out!
Don't miss out on either!
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 🌟
