    Just a reminder on this, since it seemed like at least a couple of people were interested:

    There are 15 days left to submit something for this compilation.

    You can send submissions of 1000 words or less about "People out of place" to me a steevo83 [at] gmail [dot] com

    View further details at my blog: http://intimateknowledge.blogspot.com/2011/05/short-story-compilation.html

    I've already put one of my shorts up previously and I posted one more today: There and Back

    I hope to get a few more stories from you clever people.

    I wrote one that I don't like and haven't had a chance to bleed another. I'll see if I can dream something else up.

    @Beamish - I fervently await.

    Alright, submitted my piece before the Greek sun melts away the rest of my brain.

    Sounds good! I've got an incredibly busy two days ahead of me, but I will be settling in to read everything probably Sunday morning.

    @Vornaskotti - Would you mind sending me a short bio for yourself ~200 words?

    Anyone else wanting to submit, there are six days remaining. If you do submit a piece, please include a bio for yourself of around 200 words. It's something I forgot to mention before, but I'd really like to be able to give all the authors their own little "about" section.

    The submissions I've already read are great and I hope to get a couple more in. I'm up to 10 shorts myself, with at least 5, hopefully 10 more coming in the next week or two.

    If I've forgotten anything, I apologize. Any questions, just ask.

    Steevo, I completely forget, did I send you my short bio? I can't seem to find record of me doing so in my e-mail.

    @Alan - I don't think so, just give me a quick one when you get a chance. Thanks, man.

    I was thinking that I might put all of the 10 word entries on the back cover, not sure about that idea yet. And just to reiterate, today is the final day for submissions. I've received eight so far and I think I have a couple more coming today. I may extend the deadline a couple of weeks if there is any interest. Sooo, if you want to write a short for this collection and haven't yet, please let me know.

    @Everyone who has submitted so far - I've been getting some excellent stories from you lot and I can't wait until everything is compiled and ready to shoot out into the world. I'm going to make both a printed collection and a downloadable version on Lulu. If anyone has any formatting suggestions or last minute edits they want to make to their stories, let me know. Thank you all for the submissions, you guys rock.

    PS. I think we should not be putting up original works, no matter how short (even 10 words) on the boards here, so if you could send those to me personally, either as a comment on my blog (www.intimateknowledge.blogspot.com) or, preferably, in an email to steevo83 [at] gmail [dot] com, that would probably be better.

    Crap, forgot all about this. If you can extend it a bit I will deliver something by that deadline. Even if you only add one day.

    I need deadlines. I miss deadlines. (Is that weird?)

    30 words to brutally murder and dissolve their corpses in acid, and counting. I will get this thing under 1000.

    Sounds good, guys.

    I'm not going to turn you away if you're one day late. Just get it to me ASAP. I can't wait to read a few more of these.

    Talk to you all soon.

    @Beamish - Got it.

    @Morac - Can't wait to see what you've got for me.

    @Anyone else - I'm just compiling and editing right now, so if you want to send one in, go for it.
