Announcing Hot Dish #2, Available at Midwest FurFest!

11/22/2016 10:12 pm

Hot Dish #2 Cover

We are excited to announce the release of Hot Dish Vol. 2! After several years of production and a lot of last-minute work, we are relatively confident that it will be printed and available for official release at Midwest FurFest in the vicinity of Chicago December 1–4. The book will also be available for purchase online starting Friday, December 2 (the day the Dealers Den opens).

Hot Dish is for adults only.

Hot Dish is now officially a series. It started with a first volume collected from story submissions that were too long for Heat, our annual anthology of short stories, comics and poetry about love and romance between individuals of all species and orientations. After the success of our first volume, which was released in 2013, we began collecting stories for a second, and Hot Dish #2 is the result.

So please stop by our table in the MFF Dealers Den. As in previous years, we are at booths 3–4 in the International Ballroom.

Special thanks go to Dark End for all the editorial heavy lifting required to pull this volume together, and to Teagan Gavet for wrangling illustrators and the layout. Without their efforts Hot Dish #2 would not exist!

Fall 2016 Update: Submissions, Projects and Conventions

9/9/2016 9:40 am

It’s been a while since an update, so there is much to talk about. We’ll keep things short and efficient!

Heat Submissions: Deadline September 19

Yes, only a week and a half to go until we close our annual call for submissions to Heat. But that includes two full weekends, so you still have time! Submissions are open for short stories, comics and poetry.

Novel Submissions: Open through November 15

We’re looking for fresh novel submissions again! The submissions are currently open in the system, though we won't be officially starting to review them until the 15th. (We can't make the category visible ahead of time to allow you to review the submission details, so we decided to just open it early.) Novel submissions will remain open for two months, until November 15.

We’ve made some changes to the submission process. On the submitters’ end, we are asking for sample chapters (the first 2-4 chapters of the novel) in addition to a synopsis. Behind the scenes we have also made some changes to our review process that will hopefully get responses out to submissions much sooner than we have in the past.

Conventions

We are have a busy fall schedule ahead of us!

  • Furry Migration Sept. 9–11
    Today we’re heading across town to our local con, where we’ll be selling books in the dealer’s room and hosting some panels. Please stop by!
  • Arizona Fur Con Sept. 30–Oct. 2
    We are Guests of Honor at our first appearance at Arizona Fur Con! We’re really excited to see some new country and check out this convention for the first time. Keep an eye on our Twitter account for updates on panels as they are decided.
  • Gaylaxicon Oct. 7–9
    As soon as we get back from Arizona we’ll be preparing for Gaylaxicon to return to Minneapolis. We’ll have a table in the dealer’s room and look forward to reconnecting with folks we haven’t seen since the last time the con was in town.
  • Midwest Fur Fest December 1–4
    We’ll be back at MFF this December, in the dealer’s room and hosting panels. We may have a new title or two to release at this convention. Stay tuned!

Franko Kickstarter

Rewards for the Franko Kickstarter are now shipping! Nearly all the domestic (USA) orders are en route, and many of the international orders are out. The remaining international orders are the larger orders with more complex customs information to fill out. We tried to get them all done before Furry Migration, but unfortunately the remainder will have to wait until next week to finish processing.

Summer 2016 New Releases and Updates

6/27/2016 8:45 am

We may have been quiet, but we’ve not been idle! Just in time for Anthrocon 2016 we are excited to announce two new titles: Franko, Fables of the Last Earth and Heat #13.

Franko, Fables of the New Earth
Heat #13

Franko is a collection of comics about a young lion named Franko and his friend Shin living on what is today the Atacama Desert of Chile, only a thousand years in our future, when humans have disappeared, taking much of their technology with them. Written by Ángel Bernier and illustrated by Cristóbal Jofré, the collection was originally published in its native Spanish in Chile. We ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of our own English translation of the book.

The book comes in softcover ($19.95) and hardcover ($39.95) editions, It will be released at Anthrocon, where Cristóbal Jofré will be present for signings! It will be available for purchase on our website July 5.

Heat #13, despite being such a lucky and auspicious number, came through at the last minute to continue our (mostly) unbroken tradition of an annual Anthrocon release. Dark End and Black Teagan once again did their magic with words and art to compile a diverse and striking collection of stories, comics and poetry dedicated to exploring stories of love and lust. Please see the product page for full details on what’s inside.

Heat is for adults only! It too will be released at Anthrocon and then will be made available on our website ($14.95).

General Updates
2016 has been a busy, hectic time for us, both in Sofawolf and the rest of our lives. In fact, the last full year has been quite full of ups and downs. In June 2015 our husky Wizard lost his battle with cancer. In the year since, we got married, got Zeena, spent the next several months adapting to life with a husky puppy in the house, adapted to significant changes in our day jobs, replaced all the windows in our house (in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard!), replaced our basement stairs when they collapsed, moved the entire Sofawolf warehouse when our previous landlord decided not to renew our lease (they wanted to use the space we were in), ran another Kickstarter campaign, and most recently helped coordinate a non-furry convention. We are rather exhausted and in some strange ways looking forward to two days of nothing but driving to Pittsburgh for Anthrocon.

This summer will be a time to regroup and revisit some oft-delayed projects like our aging website and digital publication. We’ll try not to be such strangers, but we also are smart enough to not make any promises!
