Jeremy C. Shipp, Fiction Writer - A message from Jayson, the director of my short film, EGG:
"Hey everyone, this is Jayson of X-1 Productions here in Dallas. Jeremy has seen fit to trust my little company with these 11 pages of his and to flesh-out this thing as a short film. The story itself is fascinating, dark and twisted in a way that is not unlike such creators as Serling, Bradbury and Lynch...yet still maintains that surreal and unnerving blend of psychological disturbances and imagery throughout the entire story. The source of tension in EGG is not developed thru usual plot structures and devices. ...and the rest is a mystery until it's released. We start principal photography at November's end and EGG's premiere is slated for the 2nd week of January. We have hopes for the big festivals and slots with IFC, Sundance, etc. Thanks to everyone for the support! - Jayson D"
Anybody in the Dallas area who would come to a book signing?:
"At the very end of November, I'll be flying to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for some of the filming of the short film I wrote called "EGG." My other reason for the visit is to do some book signings in the area. I was wondering--is there anybody reading this who could make it to one of these events? Happytimes - Jeremy :)"

Benjamin Spaethe - Read my book? Please review it!!:
"If you read my book and enjoyed it (or didnt), I would love to hear your comments. Please visit any website you purchased my book from and write a review! I really look forward to hearing anything you have to say. Any comments are extremely helpful in the upcoming book I'm working on (continuing the series). Thank you all for your great support!"
Bailey Hunter - Expose yourself! I'll even help you:
"It's true, Dark Recesses Press still has space available in it's first print issue due for release January, 2008.
The key thing about our advertising packages are not just the low rates and excellent support (though these are nice). No, the key thing about our advertising is that you are getting twice the exposure for the exact same cost! Every advertisment, no matter what size you choose, will not only run in our Print edition, it will also appear in a PDF version of the magazine which runs counter dates to the print schedule.
What this means is you will be reaching an even larger audience, have the lasting impression of print and the instant return that digital offers by way of direct linking. If that's not enough, in addition to the black and white/grayscale ad that would appear in the print magazine (unless you choose the back cover which is full colour) your PDF ad can be full glorious colour.
If this sounds like something that your product, project or service deserves, you can contact either one of the Dark Recesses Press Advertising Reps:
Eric Enck: EricEnck@darkrecesses.com or Richard Hipson: R.Hipson@darkrecesses.com Deadline for advertising is approaching fast so don't hesitate too long."

Lucy-S - Installing Linux on a Dead Badger shipping soon:
Hi everyone ~ My new book Installing Linux on a Dead Badger is shipping next week or the week after, and it's being carried at Amazon.com (in the U.S.) and Chapters (in Canada) and also in a couple of the non-US Amazons ... the full list of places to purchase is on my website along with links to sample stories.

Minnette - Website w/Great Writer Resources - Needs More:
Good morning, all! I have a brand spanking new website that launched last night: www.minnettemeador.com which has a great pulldown list of resources for writers, including reference sites, how to's, agents, publishers, synopsis, etc. These are sites I have used over the last several years for my own writing that I thought might help others. If you know of a good reference that is not on the list, please let me know and I can add it.
Also included in the website is an "Authors Page" which has some of my favorite authors' website links including Piers Anthony, Spider Robinson, Terry Pratchett, Robert Heinlein, Douglas Adams, Mary Stewart and many, many more. I've love to expand this list as well, so please send me your links and I'll add them. Any comments on the site would be appreciated! Have a great day!

Darea - An introduction:
I thought I would post this brief introduction by Johanna (aka Darea) in hopes that one of the readers of this blog might help her in finding a publisher who would be interested in the novel she is translating:
"I don't write sci-fi, although I do write stories. At the moment I am translating a French sci-fi novel by Pierre Bordage into English, and one of the main reasons joined the NWSFS Friends Space was in the hope that I would find a publisher who would be interested in this novel."
Drop her a line if you can help
