    See Shannon's post 9 up. Only unpublished works, apparently.
    Go then, there are other worlds than these.

    I should have specified with the unpublished... would uncirculated publications, such as college writing showcase collections printed privately and never sold, also be excluded? These were distributed to other students on campus only, which I don't consider "published" but apparently others do.

    First appearances only for the In Mint Condition series. After the book is published, you can do whatever you want with your stories and poems.

    Yes sir. Artists will be selected by invitation only, and they will illustrate either one of the chosen short stories or poems, or do the artwork for the paperback or hardcover covers.

    This is my public invitation for you, Mr. Ryan. I love your artwork.

    Well, even though my story is written longhand at this point, I was curious about the word count. So I counted it 1990 words, and I figure I am about half through. So should be roughly 4000 words. Just getting to the good part. This is fun, never made it this far in a story before.

    I'll be submitting for sure. My story in In Mint Condition 2013 was just short of 9,000 words!

    If anyone other than yourself and maybe one or two other people have seen your story or poem, then it has been released publicly already.

    Actually, they are, through the "Haven Fund", which is a support charity for artists and such who do not have medical insurance. Ambannon, made a substantial donation and is continually a supporter of the charity. He may be my "Bastard Son", but he is definitely a great "Bastard Son" to have!!!

    On the horizon, there may be an edition of In Mint Condition that raises enough money so that I can pay the authors and artists a fair amount of monetary compensation.

    How's everyone doing on their short stories and poems for In Mint Condition: 2014? We have about seven weeks until the deadline closes. We've received quite a few entries so far, and I'd like to keep the ball rolling.

    For all authors, both new and old, this is your time to shine. Do you have it in you to be an Ambannon Author?

    See more information here: http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...Condition-2014


    And don't forget ... the deadline is:

    Saturday, October 5th, 2013

    So nonfiction IS appropriate?

    Any thoughts on what you'd want to see as far as true stories/creative-nonfiction essays?
