Unfortunately, we've been spending so much time polishing our stories and artwork that we've sort of neglected doing things like teasing the cover art, or talking about our stories, or... well, just about everything else we usually do on this blog. But we take it as a good sign that even we can't stop reading and re-reading the stories in this volume.
To the right is the ebook cover art (click image for full version), which started as a group experiment in abstract photography and ended up being so damn pretty we just had to use it.
We can't keep this volume a secret much longer, since the targeted release date for this volume is this coming Tuesday, June 18th! This volume will also be available as a paperback, which should be in Amazon by the end of the month.
What can you expect from this new volume of Scribings?
Six AuthorsScribings, Vol 3: Metamorphosis features stories from six authors who live around Portland, Maine.
