    Torn World

    At Torn World, gossip about Layla and Dini's engagement flies in Marli Knows, and Grandma Monster (for subscribers), and things get more tangled between Baison and Ressa in On Rails and Railplay (pt 1 and 2). Take a look back at the childhood of Bai and Rai in Fireworks (a drabble) and Spectacles (for subscribers). There is also new poetry from Elizabeth Barrette and Deirdre M. Murphy, and new artwork from Marika Purisima, Tod Wils, Deirdre Murphy, and Ellen Million:

    Fantastic Portfolios

    Changes are starting to show up around the site as improvements are being made. The biggest early changes are in the backend, to help speed things up for the critics (which will help speed things up for your portfolio reviews!). Janet Chui is taking lead on this project and has a lot of exciting ideas for making it better and more active. Weigh in at the forums with your ideas and suggestions!

    Sketch Fest

    The October Sketch Fest is scheduled for October 21-22 - join us for 24 hours of amazing creative fun!

    Coloring Books

    Two new (and one reprint!) coloring books are due in as proofs next week! Watch this space for an announcement for pre-orders, which should be in stock early in November! Fantastic Magic is sold out until that time as well.

    Until November, have a safe and wonderful month!

    Ellen Million has always had a passion for projects. Visit her site for prints and embarrassing archives.
