NovoPulp Has Moved To Google+ for 2013

gplus

This is just a quick post to say we are looking to get the NovoPulp project up and running in 2013 as a purely Google+ endeavour. We believe that: Yes there is enough indie talent on Google+ alone to compile an annual anthology.

We had started up a set of forums last year, under the impression we couldn’t confine ourselves to Google+ alone. We had started the forum to attract people from other social networks, but it turned out the group came exclusively from Google+ and stayed that way. With the addition of Google+ Communities it made sense to move us back to Google+ and get the project going again after a recent enquiry got the NovoPulp conversation rolling. Since the forums went quiet toward the end of the summer in 2012 I have seen so much more creatively from Google+ Authors than from any other social outlet and we wish to do our bit to keep Google+ers ahead of the curve.

In addition to our goal of promoting people on Google+ we have opened up another angle on the project. To provide a loose theme for each anthology we are also looking for Researchers to create or share content on the latest advances in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). This acting as the bridge of inspiration, between Science Fiction and Science Fact.

You don’t have to be a ‘Scientist’ to provide STEM Inspiration on our public community, so don’t be put off by that. Share anything cutting edge in those fields and we will be happy. However if you are knowledgeable in STEM and are willing to submit your articles to us for inclusion, we would be prepared to consider doing an additional anthology, a Google+ STEM Journal if you will.

If you would like to submit written works for inclusion to the next NovoPulp anthology then you can read our submission guidelines and submit your work here. To those who are already involved in NovoPulp I’ve added a redirect page on the main NovoPulp page and under the old forum address. This gives links to both the public and private communities and after five seconds it takes you to the public one.  If anyone still needs to access the old forums you can find how to access it at the private NovoPulp HQ Community if you are a member. If you would like to become a member too, and help out with any of the tasks below, then apply here to contribute to NovoPulp HQ!

NovoPulp: The G+ SF Anthology

‘The Cancer’ by Niamh Brown – Christmas Special: Save over 30%!

I recently had the pleasure of having my science fiction short story ‘The Cancer’ reviewed by +Charles Strebor on Google+ It was a wonderful boost and it prompted me to do something I had been meaning to do for a while, which was to update the cover (see above) and a few other details.

I’ve been trying to get the discount option working on the new version as well, but it doesn’t seem to want to work so I’ve reduced the price by over a third instead. (I only wish cutting the cancer rate were so easy.)

I also updated the store front details to use Hermit Studio Press, now that we have the business set-up (it was originally Niamh Press). For a direct link to the ebook ‘The Cancer’ click here.

Unfortunately when I updated the project on Lulu I managed to lose my only other review. Therefore I would love to hear what you think of the story and the new cover (which I put together myself). Feel free to comment on this blog or on Lulu if you can. I really appreciate your feedback 🙂

If you are quick and have a lulu account you can use the promotional code shown on the front page for a further 20% off until Friday the 14th of December!

We just offered our services. Cool Project idea 😀

A few months ago I had this idea. I don’t remember where I was or what I was doing, but I do remember that it felt like a very good idea. I didn’t write it down, but I didn’t forget it either.

The thing was that I wanted to build a new website. One that would act as a sort of art/culture platform for promoting young artists. Writers, painters, photographers, you name it. You know, the type of website that would review independent movies and self-published books.

One of the first things that drew us in about Google+ was the exposure of artwork and photography that was available in a manner beyond what other channels could bring us. Having been the first sale of two G+ Indie Artists we have decided to set up a Google+ Page to collect the art we wish to hang, as well as show case the ones when can afford to buy them, in a Virtual Gallery for everyone to see and share.

To read more about The Hermit House Virtual Gallery and to nominate yourself, or someone you believe truly deserves to be more well known in the art and photographic world, then follow the link below to apply today! You may just end up on our wall 😀

Writing Achievement Unlocked

So far things have been a little slow on the publishing front of Hermit Studio right now as the main focus is being put into the games and photography projects scheduled (as our first major publishing project will an an annual anthology). This week however Niamh Brown, a member of Hermit Studio, received a gift of a collection of comments handwritten in ink in a leather bound book from the good people at bhuman.co.uk This was for donating her story to them for their anthology of stories of courage for people in hard times. Niamh has been seriously writing for over a decade now and although she has written online for five years this will be her first time in print once the book is released and donated to those in need.

Welcome To Hermit Studio Press

Hermit Studio Press is a project division within Hermit Studio, housed at Hermit House, outside Copenhagen, Denmark. We are a small studio whose focus is on the creative arts. We believe that writing, the graphic arts, gaming, music and the interplay between them are the primary tools which allow us to tell our stories, and by telling them to affect the changes we want and need in the world around us.

Our first Press Project will be Novo Pulp Monthly Magazine and Annual Anthologies: Let’s bring back the best of the days of Pulp: Fiction written by and for those who love the genre. Pushing boundaries, asking the questions, demanding the answers, and even providing some. More Information on Novo Pulp can be found at the Novo Pulp Website or at our Projects page.
