I’m pleased to announce the cover artist for Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 is Columbus, Ohio’s own Matt Tisdale. Some of Matt’s incredible work can be found here. He’s hard at work on a new painting for the zine’s inaugural issue, which I will share here as soon as it is ready. I’m really excited that Matt agreed to do the cover. I’ve admired his work for a long time, and he was the first artist I thought of when I began to try and make Turn to Ash a reality.
There are 13 days left until the period of open submissions closes for Turn to Ash, Vol. 1. Beginning April 1st, I will finish up my reading and finalize the fiction lineup for Vol. 1. Once that is done, I will read Furnace, by Livia Llewellyn, which is sitting unopened on my coffee table, causing me fits on a daily basis. Click that link, buy it, and read it. I will live vicariously through you.
Turn to Ash, Vol. 1 is shaping up wonderfully, including some great non-fiction additions that have gone into the works since my last post. I am eager to share the details of these and all of the contents with you as I can. My fingers are crossed for some really cool stuff. I’m going to do my best to do an update every week between now and release in six months. If that starts to devolve into complaining about Adobe products and cool things my dog did, I may pump the brakes on the frequency of my posts. My dog is pretty cool, though.
