Mythical Girls I think can be called a success. The feedback on the book I’ve received is positive, and all the books are out to the supporters.
The only logical thing to do now is to start over with a new anthology. In the next month or two I will be splitting my newsletter into two parts, one will continue to be occasional news about releases and upcoming books. The other will be directed specifically to those interested in Celticfrog Publishing projects such as the anthologies. You will be able to join one or both streams.
Look for information about a Kickstarter to come in the new year, and a call for submissions shortly after that.
After a very fun Kickstarter campaign we ended up with $3829, which allowed me to pay the contributors double what I’d promised them. The content and copy edits have been completed, and when the last of the second revisions come in we’ll begin the process of proofreading.
We are also fortunate to have a talented illustrator, Lucy Harnett, working with us. Here’s the first illustration she’s completed for us.
Keep watching this space for more updates on the progress of the book.
You may remember a year or so back a girl found ‘Excalibur’ in Britain, in Dozmary Pool (where the Lady of the Lake lives), you may also remember a few months ago, another girl found a sword in Norway, which immediately made me think of Sigmund’s sword Gramr. This all got me wondering what other mythic weapons might be out there. Turns out there are a lot. So of course I had to wonder what happened if girls around the globe started finding these magical weapons.
I’m in the process of working on the book now, I have eleven great stories and will be launching a kickstarter soon. Watch for more information.
