Citizens of the Internet,
The WRP blog has been rather quiet throughout the month of February, but all that’s about to change. David Proctor’s March 1st essay on Charlie Sheen quietly, and unceremoniously launched a revolution in WRP Blogging. You are looking at a new kind of blog, a blog of strength and of nobility, a blog for the people, a blog that updates three times a week. This is the dawn of a new era, when book reviews, opinion pieces, and our shiny new celebrity feature Fantastic Tale’s of Amazing Individuals, will be offered to you, the noble reader, on regular, predictable schedules.
But wait! There’s more!
I’ve always loved serial. In all it’s forms — from TV dramas, to episodic film like Back to the Future and Star Wars, to monthly comics — the serial has always held me by the balls. I love the mounting anxiety that builds between chapters; the cliff hanger potential of every episode; the fact that once one problem is solved you always discover two more brooding in the back ground, waiting to take its place.
So with great, tingling enthusiasm, I come to offer you a little serial with your Sunday morning coffee. On March 13, only one short week from today, guest blogger Richard Harris will be helping us launch “The Sunday Paper,” a collection of short, serialized stories, web-published right on this blog. Harris’ inaugural entry will be the first part of <Word Nerds>, a charming story about love, anonymity, and Scrabble. <Word Nerds> will run for three weeks, and on April 4th, a new story will begin.
So where do you fit into all this? Just another casual reader?
Well, I hope not!
Wooden Rocket Press wants to be a part of your community. That means reading our blogs, yes, and buying our books, but more importantly it means commenting. Love us? Hate us? Let us know. We approve comments indiscriminately, as long as you aren’t a spam bot.
If you’re a published author, send us your book. Not only will we actually read it, but we will also blog a minimum of five-hundred words of honest, thoughtful review.
If you’re an author with an unpublished work, send us that too: email@example.com. We might not always reply, but WE DO ACCEPT UNSOLICITED MANUSCRIPTS. Dave and I are always looking for fictional work of any length and genre. Right now, we are specifically in search of a 20,000 word chapbook to add to our catalogue.
And, of course, we need submissions for The Sunday Paper.
