You know what sucks?

without comments

The economy.

I should really be grateful because, by and large, I haven’t been nearly as affected as a great many people have been by the horrible financial situation of the country.  I began to get really worried when a number of teachers with whom I work were laid off.  I read somewhere that teaching is the second most recession-proof job to have behind only childcare provider.  I’m not sure if that’s actually the case, but I’ve never seen a teacher get laid off before because of the economy, so it hit pretty close.  You may be wondering what the relevance of this post is to the general news of the site and why it’s not posted in my ranting section.  Well, here you go: the economy did pack a pretty significant punch over at Wilde Times.  The impact manifested itself in a couple of ways; most of them small, but noticable, nonetheless:

- There was a bit of a lull in posts and updates simply because we had to slow things down to conserve.

- The Second Wilde Times Sci-Fantasy Contest results were not posted as early as we’d hoped that they’d be.

- Here’s the one that making us mad: Publishing a collection of the winning stories is a costly endeavor.  We simply haven’t been able to make this happen, so there will not be a printed collection for the second contest.  Also, since the stories won’t be appearing in print, we thought it only fair to return publishing rights to the contest winners.  Anyone who ordered a collection has been refunded, and writers, please feel free to publish your winning stories in print and/or digitally.

So, without any further ado, here are the winners for The Second Wilde Times Sci-Fantasy Writing Contest!!!!

First Place – Summer Kennedy, All Things Converge

Second Place – Paul Casson, The Belly of the Beast

Third Place – Eric Burke, Enough is not Enough

Honorable Mention – Sean O’Brien, Treetop Flyer

Honorable Mention – Kristen Stieffel, The Last Buffalo

Congratulations to you all!

In other news:

We’ve done away with the film review blog.  It may reappear at some point in the future, so if you were a fan, let me know you want it back.  While we’ve lost one blog, we’ve gained another:

I’m excited to announce that Nicolàs is launching Pure NRG, a new blog featuring some of his writings, thoughts, and works.  Check it out using the “Blogs” link to the left.

If you’re interested in doing a bit of writing, shooting, drawing, or whatever for Wilde Times, check out the submission guidelines to the left.

New issues of Wilde Times and N0.1R are up in the webcomics section, and check back tomorrow for my first post in the musings section.

Wazzat?

Yo.  New issues of WildeTimes, N0.1R, and It’s an Imp’s Life.

Adam should be updating the film blog soon, so keep your eyes open for that.

Also, beginning next week, I’m going to try to post some of my rants about things that I’ve discovered.  Things which will hopefully help my readers avoid some of the aggravation I’ve dealt with.

Be sure to head on over to the store and sign up for the Wilde Times Sci-Fantasy Contest!!

What was that!?

The title has no bearing on the post, so you don’t need to look for any hidden meaning.  At any rate, my apologies for the delay in getting some new strips up.  All three have been updated now, so be sure to check them out.  If you have any feedback on the strips, be sure to leave it on the forum.

I’ll be out of town tomorrow, so I’ve updated the webcomics a day early.  We’ve got new issues of Wilde Times, N0.1R, and It’s an Imp’s life.

Also, you may notice that the forum now opens on the main content page, so you don’t have to flip back and forth.

Wilde Times… Relaunched

without comments

I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally relaunch the site. We’ve been building Wilde Times for a few years, now, taking a bit of a break last year, and we’ve got some new things for you to check out.

First up, The Second Wilde Times Sci-Fantasy writing contest has opened!! Here you’ve got a chance to show off your writing skills, be published, and win some money. Check out the “CONTESTS” category in the store for more information.



Next, Utopia, the long awaited (my bad) graphic novel from writer/creator Nicolás R. Giacondino, has hit the store. Head on over and check it out. We also still have copies of the Utopia: Preview for sale, as well, if you’re interested.



We’ve also added two more webcomics to the line-up: N0.1R, a gritty detective story from Nicolás R. Giacondino, and It’s an Imp’s Life, a tounge-in-cheek kind of thing from Alex Kaulfuss.

One of the things that I want to draw your attention to in the store is that we’ve added an AFFILIATES feature. This will allow you to earn a bit of cash when people purchase products or enter contests using your links. Affiliates will earn 15% of the entry fee for the Second Wilde Times Sci-Fantasy writing contest for anyone they sign up!

Coming with the next update, we’re adding a photography blog, so be on the lookout for that!

The deadline for the writing contest is March 31, 2009, so get writing and get those entries in!!
