I’m sorry to inform everyone that, due to current medical difficulties (facing sinus cancer surgery/treatment coming up fairly soon), the submissions period for Fossil Lake V: WERE-WHAT?! will not be opening in July as originally intended.
I still very much want this book to happen, so, as soon as my situation is sorted, I’ll hopefully be able to re-announce it at a later date.
In the meantime, a huge thank-you to all Fossileers, contributors and readers alike! Couldn’t have done it without your awesome talent and support!
Waiting on the proof to do final check, but, should be ready for official release in May!
