Well, I can’t quite believe it but there are only ten more Split Worlds stories to write and release before the launch of Between Two Thorns. [Insert excited and terrified screaming and hand flapping here.]
In case you didn’t know, I’ve been releasing a short story every week for a year and day (there was a pause in the middle due to all the Angry Robot deal stuff that took me by surprise). Each one is designed to be a tiny glimpse into the world(s) the novels are set in and some of them feature characters in the books. Whilst it isn’t necessary to read the stories to enjoy the books, my hope is that if you read the stories, you’ll get some geeky thrillgasms when you read the books from knowing the vignettes behind some of the details. If you want to get each one (plus a bonus story) every week in your inbox, you can sign up here.
So anyway, I wanted to do something a little bit different for the last ten. I’d like to invite you to submit story prompts below and if yours either inspires a story and/or appears within it, I’ll send you a handwritten copy of the story and a little note to say thank you. A prompt could be just an idea, a line of dialogue, a title or a tiny little description – preferably of something odd. I like odd things. And slightly creepy stuff too.
All you need to do is pop it below and if your prompt is picked I’ll get in touch with you privately to make arrangements for getting your prize to you. Oh, and if the comments are playing silly sods, come and find me on Twitter instead – I’m @emapocalyptic
You can submit as many ideas as you like by the way.
Let’s make some stories!
