Now Available for pre-order: White Kitty

Chris R. E. Wells' White Kitty, is available for pre-order from Flaming Giblet Press!

About the novel: Charles is a grad-school dropout whose life and marriage are at an impasse, but a chance encounter will cause him to re-evaluate the choices he has made. Chris R. E. Wells' haunting debut novel chronicles the life of a man whose story is at once foreign and all-too-familiar as it meditates on the nature of memory, fantasy, love, and samaritanism.

The book will be available for purchase at Flaming Giblet's new storefront on June 15, 2009. But if you pre-order directly through the press, you save $3 off the cover price. (When you factor in free shipping, that's a savings of over 20%!)

Pre-orders will close Monday, June 8, 2009.

A proper announcement

The inaugural issue of grain short/grain long is now available, featuring excellent work by Suzanne Grazyna, Virginia Reeves, Elizabeth Kate Switaj, & C. R. E. Wells in response to the theme "grain short/grain long."

Our next issue will center around the theme "Collaboration / Stimulus / Response." We are looking for works that collaborate with, are stimulated by, &/or respond to other writers & artists. The vehicle—be it ekphrasis, tag-team writing, plain ol' inspiration, etc.—is immaterial. We want to see what you come up with. This is a broad topic, so we hope to get a variety of interpretations.

grain short/grain long is open to all types of poetry, prose, visual, & hybrid works. We are especially interested in submissions from women; Southerners; unknown, unpublished, & under-represented artists; or anyone whose projects have been described as "innovative," "experimental," "avant-garde," "post-avant," "eccentric," or just plain "odd."

Potential contributors may submit up to four (4) poems, four thousand (4,000) words of prose, or images up to 2 MB in response to the current call to flaming [dot] giblet [at] gmail [dot] com. (Of course, replace the bracketed words with the appropriate symbols.)

Accepted file formats include JPG, TIFF, BMP, ODT, DOC, & RTF. Other formats will be considered on an individual basis—query first. Projects that stretch the limits of print are welcome, so long as their execution is feasible within our (alas, oh so limited) resources. Hint: Make it great. The more we love it, the more likely we are to finesse something for you.

Submissions in response to "Collaboration / Stimulus / Response" will be accepted until December 31, 2008.

Update on White Kitty

As you've probably guessed, C. R. E. Wells' White Kitty is way behind schedule. Also, due to lack of funding and (wo)manpower, we will not be able to offer it in a handbound edition. After some discussion, the author and press have decided to publish it via a print-on-demand service.

To get catch everyone up on the details, the first set of proofs are complete. We are in the process of correcting them and prepping it for printing. With grain short/grain long up for the summer—along with a month-long sojourn to France—we are pushing the publication date back to Fall/Winter 2008.

Pre-orders will likely be announced sometime in late summer.

Check it, don't wreck it. The new website for grain short/grain long & Flaming Giblet Press is now available! Issue #1 is not up yet, but it will be published this summer.
