It’s the same old story here at 11D Press: we put out a call for submissions and we’re flooded with tantalizing short stories and amazing artwork from inspiring new authors and artists! It’s like a miracle drug with only good feelings and now negative affects; we just want more…
ROCK IS NOT DEAD #RIND
If you’ve ever been driving along, music blaring, and been struck by a story idea, this is the anthology for you!If you find the creative juices seem to flow better with the volume cranked high, this is the anthology for you!11th Dimension Press is looking for short stories in narrative or comic form inspired by kick-ass rock songs.Authors and artists (or author/artist teams) are invited to submit their original manuscripts of no more than 6000 words or works of graphic fiction no longer than 10 pages (formatted for printing on 7″ x 10″ pages) for consideration to be included in the forthcoming anthology.Our preference is for self-contained narratives (no cliff hangers please) and preference will be given to Canadian artists/authors. That said, dynamic story telling, authentic voice, and, in the case of graphic fiction, killer graphics will be our final criterion.
More than words…
RIND will be a multi-dimensional project. The anthology will include a series of text-based short stories, as well as a series of graphic-based short stories all inspired by rock songs.
11th Dimension Press will also recruit bands to record covers of the songs that inspired the short stories! The final product will be distributed in multiple formats and a variety of packages:
- The short stories will be sold together in a beautifully bound print edition,
- They will be sold together in both Kindle and iBook formats,
- They will also be sold individually in both Kindle and iBook formats,
- The Anthology and the Soundtrack will be sold as a set that will include the print edition and the soundtrack on CD,
- Each story and the song that inspired them will be made available for download in mini-sets, and
- Finally, the anthology and the soundtrack will be available in an amazing limited edition box set including a special print edition of the short stories paired with vinyl edition of the soundtrack!
This is sure to be one amazing project so don’t be left out!
