Apocalypse WeirdYes, this is Big Apocalypse Weird News.  Tomorrow, sometime in the early afternoon, we’ll be dropping something big on the digital landscape.  Something that changes the  Digital Publishing game.

In effect… we’re throwing down the gauntlet.


Tomorrow people are going to find out what the Apocalypse Weird is all  about.  After that… hold onto your hats.  If you’re a reader we’re going to give you all the books you can read.  If you’re a geek we’re going to drop the mic and let you have your fill of Easter eggs, secrets, labyrinths and bonus swag you can earn just by following clues, paying attention and encouraging us to keep trying to outwit you.  And if you’re a writer it’s time to step up and strike a Macho Monkey Karate Death Chop Pose.  This AW is big.  Big enough for you to take a chance with us and share some of your writing.  You can go for a straight up pitch to editor Ellen Campbell or you can sign on for our version of Thunderdome: AW Survivors.  A place where you’ll be able to post your fractured fairy tale and let the masses vote.  If they dig it, and we do too, why we might just let you break our stuff.

So, tomorrow the world changes.  We’ve been developing this for a long time and we’ve had a lot of fun doing it.  Get ready, because tomorrow we ride…

INSIDE JOB: Big Stars and how not to break up with your readers.

Big Stars

Maybe you heard about the Sony Hack Info Dump that went down last week, and as of Monday bright and early, seems to continue like some under-cranked slow motion karate film where a guy pulls out his enemy’s heart from ten different camera angles, over and over, again and again. Which is pretty much how […]

Agent Smith
