Imaginarium House Summer Compilation

Imaginarium House Summer Compilation

Once again I'm trying to put some life back in to the Imaginarium House. Although we have 146 members it would be great to welcome some new ones too. I've just started posting a House show-case for members -- any member of the house is invited to submit a short story or poem which will then be posted together with a link to their profile.

We have had a few really successful compilations but the last couple of them have fallen flat due to lack of interest from other members. There's no point in posting a House compilation if I'm the only contributor, so if there is no interest this time around this will be the last time I'll launch a show-case book.

Any new members to Booksie, you are just as welcome to come along and take part. The link to the house is  https://www.booksie.com/house-the-imaginarium-760. You do not need an invitation to join, just click the button.

 

Extinction Event

Check out 'Extinction Event' by Adam Carlton if you like post-apocalyptic writing. It is set in the same world as 'Five Years', which Adam contributed a couple of chapters for.

The Strange Ones

Following the completion of 'Five Years', I'm currently posting two books. 'The Strange Ones' is set in a post-apocalyptic world and is inspired by a challenge made by Booksie member Adam Carlton. 'The Enchanted Map' is inspired by the images of the oracle card deck of the same name by Colette Baron-Reid and illustrated by Jena DellaGrottaglia. Written in both prose and poetry, be prepared to visit some very strange scenes.

 

 

Ronin Express 6.

Thanks to Ronin Publications for including five of my works in the latest volume. Looking forward to taking part in volume 7.

 

Participation Opportunity.

Over the coming weekend I'm going to be starting a new book/project. It is inspired by a David Bowie song called 'Five Years' but will be written kind of in the style of Max Brooks 'World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.' Anybody that might like to come up with a character, location, and write about the expereineces of them, contact me through messages and I'll tell you more. The pieces will be between 500 and 2000 words, and anyone that should take part will be fully credited for their work.

 

3 Years On Booksie

This weekend sees the end of my third year on Booksie. Here's to another twenty!

 

Skitch-Bot, Ronin Express Plus Another title

I'm proud to say that I had five titles included in 'Skitch-Bot' and have just had another five accepted for inclusion in the next volume of Ronin Express. Also I have a short story not posted on Booksie that will be included in 'Adverbially Challenged Volume 4', due to release some time this month.

 

One Book Finished, Two Books Started.

I've finally finished posting 'Madness Through The Looking Glass'.  A special thanks to the members that kept me going in what proved at times to be a difficult project. Two books now posting are 'Mystical Moments' and 'Dark Mirror', both of which are inspired by oracle card decks. An additional short story that accompanies 'Mystical Moments' is called 'Empath'.

 

Thank you all, so much.

I have to say I was totally bowled over, gob-smacked, staggered....however you'd like to put it, by the best present EVER! Thank you guys, and girls, so very much. I've replied to all of the poems in the comments. Just know -- it really means so very much!

 

A New Year, A New Project.

In January watch out for a new room in Doc's House of 10,000 Exotic Rooms. I am going to start writing around characters featured in te art of various Tarot sets, posting the work in The Tarot Room.

Also, look out for the Library, where people can post the titles and authors of any books they have found to be outstanding or influential, or just worth a special mention.

 

Trying to get festive.

As it is now December and Christmas is just around the corner, I am featuring two seasonal writes. 'Festive Tales' is a collection of short stories, just started. "Twas The Night Before Christmas (Booksie Version)' is a rewrite of the original, featuring our very own Booksie Guy.

The 'Mr Forbes' series.

I've posted the final of six short stories that each feature the character of Mr Grimonomous Forbes. Originally planned to be four, two additional titles have now been added.

Mr Forbes 1. The Notebook

Mr Forbes 2. The Voyage

Mr Forbes 3. The Pact.

Mr Forbes 4. The Offer.

Mr Forbes 5. The Poor Soul

Mr Forbes 6. The Blaze

A special thanks to Markie Bee for so kindly and effectivley designing the covers.

 

Another Collaboration.

Jeff Bezaire and I have just finished a second collaborative poem called 'The Butterfly And The Caterpillar'. Give it a read and let us know what you think. https://www.booksie.com/570345-the-butterfly-and-the-caterpillar

 

New Collaboration

I've just posted a new short story written in collaboration with Booksie member, Jeff Bezaire. It is called 'Special Collections'https://www.booksie.com/569031-special-collections.

Micro Fiction

I've just started posting a new book of pieces of 100 words or less, all written from prompts.

Markie Bee's covers take some beating.

 

Collaboration, an Ending and a Beginning.

I've just posted a colloaborative poem with Jeff Bezaire. Check out his other work on https://www.booksie.com/users/jeff-bezaire-151191  especially if you enjoy that Gothic feel. 'Royalty Falls' will finish posting tomorrow, and I have just started posting 'Cassandra'.

 

'Feed Your Head' is finished.

This book was written for the BoMoWriCha monthly challenge -- to complete a book within a month with the prompt 'your protagonist knows that they are a character in a book'.

Very influential for the idea was the cover provided by fellow booksie member, Markie Bee.
