Here we are, arriving on the doorstep of another Halloween, almost four years after Forever Nocturne came into being. I can still remember hashing out the details, trying to choose a name, a logo, a theme, a venue, driven by our desire to put our work before the public eye. Much has been lost regarding those long-ago conversations, but one thing remains: our dedication to promoting unknown, little known, well-known, indie [and any other adjective that fits] authors.
We’ve branched out from simply offering a free e-zine to being a legal LLC. Running Ink Press published its fourth work in July, with more to come by the end of the year. The indie movement has swept through both camps – authors and publishers – and boutique publishers such as Running Ink Press are springing up left and right, offering some wonderful writing from independent authors. It’s a very exciting time to be a writer.
October 2011’s issue is entirely online; we will be offering a PDF version for free on Scribd, as always, but due to a [wonderful, long-anticipated and prayed for] wedding in Jinxie’s family (on Halloween, no less!), we just simply didn’t have the time to format a print version, but will make that available as soon as possible.
While we accept submissions in any genre, this issue seems to have attracted all dark and disturbing stories – which we love! – and some excellent, equally dark poetry. Since we have some longer pieces, we aren’t offering as varied an author list as usual. We hope you enjoy our offerings regardless.
