Now that issue three is out, the question is do we do an issue 4?

The process, for writers, is fairly simple. 

We pick a theme/topic for each issue.

You write a story related to that theme.

 An editorial team from the citadel, made up of the writers of the issue review the stories. 

If those stories pass muster, and any carefully written story should pass muster, then I publish them online.  There we try and to sell and promote them, with a plan to share profits, if there ever are any  :(

We do have feedback mechanisms and story editing mechanism, but participation in those is optional.  You don't have to workshop your story.

But workshopping your story can be valuable.  You should have first round readers for all stories anyway.

If you use the workshop and the feedback mechanisms you are under no obligation to publish your story in the ePub.  If you work on your story and you feel it is good enough to sell in paying market then you should do that.

Your story will get copy edited. Even then you are not obligated to publish it with the ePub until it is published.

I've found this process helpful for me in getting stories to completion and improving my stories.
If you would like take more a leadership or editor role in this process, we have a constant need for that and could use your help. 

There will be deadlines (loosely enforced).

A callout to Aramax's discussion on Magic the Gathering and D&D:  http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/plane-shift-kaladesh-2017-02-16

"Like a renegade inventor tinkering in a secluded workshop, author James Wyatt has crafted a set of rules to bring your Dungeons & Dragons adventures to life on Kaladesh, including new races, new monsters, and a distinctly aether-flavored take on crafting the marvelous and ingenious magic items that define this plane."

Some of us on the Citadel have put together an anthology series of short fiction. Issue 3 of that Anthology Series is out now. Please check it out. If you haven't read the previous issues, you can find links to those at www.exftc.com.


If you are not a fan of amazon, then be patient, issue 1&2 will be expanded to other Epub venues later this month.

32. The Clean-Up Crew
Operating under the label 'Rise and Shine', the cleaners are service providers for the underworld. Led by Long John Short, a retired assassin, and Melissa Xanthe, a retired crooked cop, they are well trained in looking for evidence... and disposing of it. The old pair hires level-headed criminals with more brains than average, who (while not as flashy as the A-teams of the mob, or not as notorious as the thugs and bruisers) have risen to a sort of prominence as working-class intellectuals among the underworld. Want good life advice? Stuck on a hard crossword? Looking for a good school for your kid? Ask a Cleaner.
While the Cleaners like to avoid exposure and combat, PCs may run afoul of them as they investigate a crime scene, or during the Cleaners' attempt to dispose of evidence. The Cleaners sometimes also step in to tie up loose ends when absolutely necessary, or dispose of evidence that is still alive and kicking.

On a slightly related note, the company also produces excellent work clothes; the Rise and Shine line is a locally sourced brand, with quality materials and smart design.

"The machine-gunners' dreams of point blank fire into serried masses of Emus were soon dissipated. The Emu command had evidently ordered guerrilla tactics, and its unwieldy army soon split up into innumerable small units that made use of the military equipment uneconomic. A crestfallen field force therefore withdrew from the combat area after about a month.[11]"
