Heat #13 Submissions Now Open!

7/23/2015 11:11 pm

With Heat #12 successfully released, and after a brief break for the editorial team to recuperate, it's now time to start the process all over again for Heat #13! We have opend up our Submittable submissions categories once again for submissions of Heat stories, poems and comics.

Heat is our annual anthology of tales about love and romance told through a variety of storytelling formats. Each issue strives to showcase some of the best romantic and erotic fiction, including any and all sexual orientations.

The submission process is pretty straight forward. Just follow the above links to the submission page for the appropriate category and follow the instructions. You do not have to pay to create an account or to submit to any of our categories.

Because of known scheduling issues for our editorial team in the coming year, we are going to press our production schedule forward in order to get into editing mode as soon as feasibly possible. As such, we are opening for submissions through Monday, August 31. If you'd like to submit stories, poetry or comics for consideration for Heat #13, you have a little over five weeks to do so. We hope to get through reviewing submissions in September and into editing of our selected works by early October. If all goes as planned, we still hope to have the next volume ready for release at Anthrocon 2016.

Announcing: Rat's Reputation by Michael Payne

7/8/2015 10:38 am

Cover of Rat's Reputation by Michael Payne

For years, readers have waited for author Michael Payne to return to the beautifully realized animal world of The Blood Jaguar. Now that wait is over, as Rat's Reputation gives us another perspective on life in that world.

Rat, a young orphan taken in by a squirrel community and then sent to live with mice after an accident at a religious ceremony, can't seem to escape the preconceptions everyone has about his kind. Sure, he makes mistakes, but doesn't everyone? It doesn't seem fair that even the things he doesn't do get blamed on him, nor that sometimes the worst things happen when he’s trying his hardest not to get in trouble. He has friends in the community, mice who see him for who he is and not what he is, but they can't shield him forever, and he doesn’t think they should have to.

How did he end up an orphan anyway? He doesn't really remember, but as he grows, he starts to get some hints that it has to do with the Curials, the twelve animal spirits who watch over the world. Even getting answers to that question doesn't help him figure out where he belongs now, though. That's something he'll have to answer for himself. Fortunately for him (and for us), his wanderlust takes him far across the world, to many exotic places, and his absence in the mouse community only makes his legend grow larger.

Where The Blood Jaguar described an unlikely hero thrust into an epic quest with a world depending on him, Rat's Reputation takes us on a no less epic but much more personal journey. Rat faces the questions all of us have faced: am I more than what others see in me? Where do I belong? What’s my purpose here? Around this story, we get Payne's wonderful characters, who make this story a true joy.

Sofawolf Press is excited to include Rat's Reputation as a late addition to our Summer 2015 releases. It will be available for purchase online shortly and at our booth at Anthrocon this coming weekend.

Summer 2015 Releases

6/9/2015 7:49 am

While we've been rather quiet lately, it's not because we haven't been busy! In addition to working on the Anubis Dark Desires graphic novel (for adults) that was funded successfully through Kickstarter, and which will be released later this year, we have also been busy working on getting Caterwall Vol. 1: The Isle of Manx and Heat #12 ready for their Anthrocon debut on July 10.

Caterwall ($19.95 softcover and $39.95 hardcover) is the creation of Spain Fischer and tells the tale of Max, a young cat who is banished from his home for telling the truth, and who with his friend Gavin must learn to survive on their own while helping protect the kingdom that is no longer their home from war.

Caterwall is suitable for readers of all ages.

Heat #12 ($14.95) continues our annual tradition of showcasing some of the fandom's best romantic and erotic writing, comics and poetry. This year's volume is an exciting mix of talents new and old.

Heat contains adult content and is not suitable for minors.

Both products will debut at the opening of the dealer's room at Anthrocon on Friday, July 10, and will also be available for purchase on our website starting that date.
