Moving Submissions to Submittable.com

8/28/2013 11:17 pm

We have moved our submission and review process to Submittable.com. This site is dedicated to helping organizations like us streamline the processes involved in taking in, reviewing and then accepting or declining submissions.

The new URL is: sofawolfpress.submittable.com/submit

We are excited to try out this new system because it will make it easier for us to build teams of reviewers for our various projects to help spread out the work load involved in reading the slushpile and responding to submitters. We also hope that a more structured system like this will reduce the number of lost or overlooked submissions.

Novels and Graphic Novels

We continue to take submissions for novels and graphic novels on an ongoing basis. We have several projects that are underway, but we're always looking for new projects to keep the pipeline flowing.

New Fables

We are continuing to take submissions of stories and poems for the next volume of this title. Along with the move to Submittable, we are also increasing the pay rate from 1/2 cent to 1 cent per word for stories.

Heat

Now that we have our Submittable.com site up and running, we can officially open up for submissions for Heat, Vol. 11! Submissions will be officially open through September 30. We are taking submissions for stories, poems and comics. As with previous volumes, this one will be printed in black and white.

Hot Dish

The first volume of Hot Dish has been a success! We have decided to begin work on a second volume. However, we're not sure how soon we can fill another novel-length collection of 10,000 to 20,000 word stories, so for this project, we have set no deadline. Submissions for the Volume 2 of Hot Dish will be open until we have enough content for another volume.

 

We look forward to trying out the new system, and we hope that our submitters find the process easy and problem free. We've run tests during setup, so we think we know what we're getting into, but there is always a leap of faith when you finally decide to launch a new system. Please let us know if you have any problems or suggestions at talent@sofawolf.com. Thanks!

About "Room Party: The Game"

7/26/2013 8:44 am

As many of you know, there is an awesome Kickstarter going on right now for a card game called "Room Party: The Game" and the project is being run by "Sofawolf Games". Some folks have asked us what role Sofawolf Press, Inc. has in the project, so I thought we should clarify the issue publicly.

Obviously, we know the creators (Tess Garman and Teagan Gavet) and the producer (Jack DeVries) all quite well from working on past projects with them. When Tess and Teagan started moving the game forward, they approached Sofawolf Press, Inc. with the project.

After much internal consideration and discussion we decided that taking on a card game project was not something we wanted to do as a publishing company. Our focus and passion remains in great storytelling. While we helped produce the first release of the "Nordguard: The Card Game" as a natural tie-in to the graphic novel, we stepped back from that in the second release as well.

We continue to distribute "Nordguard: The Card Game" and are in discussions with the creators to act as distributor for "Room Party: The Game" as well. We have all been heavily involved in the design and development of both of the games, so who is listed as the official producer of one or the other is ultimately of little consequence.

So, why the "Sofawolf Games" on the Kickstarter "by" line? The account was set up early on and the name put in as a likely candidate at the time, while we were still discussing what our involvement might have been. When it came time for the project to launch, the creators had gotten so used to seeing it that it never occurred to them there might be some confusion between them and us.

The "Sofawolf Games" name will remain on the Kickstarter with our complete blessing. We are honestly flattered, 'cause it is going to be very cool. But, since people asked what our involvement has been, we figured we should make it all clear.

And, if you haven't gone and supported the game (or hadn't even heard about it) then go check it out. It's fun and a little disturbing and the perfect thing to play on Friday nights at the end of working a long and tiring trade show. Preferably with lots of booze...

Digger Omnibus Kickstarter Is Launched!

6/10/2013 10:42 pm

We have officially launched the Digger Omnibus Kickstarter project! And, as of this writing, we are already 1/3 of our way to the base project goal. Tonight has been quite a ride, but we still have a ways to go, and we also hope to get into stretch goal territory so that we can make the Digger Omnibus Edition even bigger and better.

You can view all the Kickstarter details here:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1234535943/digger-omnibus

And you can share the campaign via this short link:
http://kck.st/11rTfnY

The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to help us fund the printing of this omnibus edition, but we have come up with a number of fun rewards to give backers some extra fun Digger-related items to commemorate the event. At the upper levels, we have some exclusive merchandise like stained glass suncatchers and hand-forged pick axes! Please stop by the links above for details.

We've also laid out some extra stretch goals that will allow us to turn the basic black-and-white book into something with a bit more pizazz, including both extra content and extra finishing details. So even if you've already made a pledge, please spread the word and help us make this book as awesome as it can be!

Digger Omnibus Kickstarter Coming Soon!

5/21/2013 3:26 pm

Sofawolf Press is excited to announce that we are preparing a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Digger Omnibus, Ursula Vernon’s six-volume graphic novel series collected in one thick volume! This is something we’ve had in the works for a little while, and we’ve been trying to keep it hush-hush before the launch, but it has been getting harder and harder to keep it a secret. People keep sending us emails asking whether we’re going to do a single-volume edition of Digger. They keep asking Ursula and Kevin about it on their blogs and their KUEC podcast. Digger’s fans very helpfully and enthusiastically suggest that a Kickstarter campaign would be a great way to fund the project. They’re all correct! And now that we’ve made it official that we are doing just that, we no longer have to dance around to avoid direct answers.

We are funding the Digger Omnibus via Kickstarter because we think it will be a fun event in addition to helping raise the funds for printing. Sure, we probably could have figured out a way to pay for the initial print run ourselves, but that would have put a crimp on our finances and created challenges for the other exciting projects in our pipeline. Getting the funding for printing up front relieves us of those worries, and through stretch goals, it allows us to consider making the omnibus bigger and better, depending on how much interest we can raise in the project. We’ll start at a basic black-and-white book, but then we can consider adding color inserts for the original cover art and guest art, embossing on the hardcover edition, and so on.

To make things fun, we have a bunch of unique rewards for those who want to pledge for more than just a copy of the book. What these awards are we will keep secret for now, but we will say that we’ve got a variety of Kickstarter-only Digger-related collectibles at a variety of pledge levels.

We hope to make the campaign go live in the next couple of weeks, so please keep an eye on our blogs and our Twitter account for more details. Ursula will undoubtedly be making announcements on her various social media accounts too.
