The happiest of New Year’s to you!

Last year was a whirlwind, or more like a consistent stream of wonderful work, and we are still trying to catch up. 2013 was just an incredible year and we can only thank you for continuing to support us and all that we do.

In 2014, we hope to bring you more fantastic work by established and emerging writers. We will be working on a slight redesign of our logo with our artist. We will also be working on a series of blogs, guest bloggers, and of course a new Gothic Blue Book! We are working on the new guidelines for the 2014 Gothic Blue Book, which will be up in a few months.

For now, we invite you to review our current content and standby for a flood of great stories and poems this month.

We thank you, wholeheartedly for your support. You are the reason why we do this. You are great friends and great supporters.

May this year bring you and your family immense health, happiness and prosperity!

Now, forward to great writing!
