VerbNoire.com has a new look!

Hullo from Montreal!

One last news bit before I get back to the Con. verbnoire.com has a new look! Check it out here, and please let us know about broken links, etc.

Please keep in mind some links were left intentionally blank, like the Wiscon and Think Galacticon 2010 links.

Also, there may be a couple pages that keep taking you to the previous layout but same content. That may be something that I've done in getting the page up while on the road and I'll take responsibility for that.

Lastly, I'm at WorldCon myself and won't have internet access on a regular basis so if there's a web emergency, please send a note to verb.noire@gmail.com and I'll get that faster than an LJ comment until I return to Chicago.

But wait, there's more!

We're also looking for folks who are willing to send us clips (about 3-4 minutes max) talking about their experiences as a POC/LGBT in fandom, which will also be part of our multimedia presentation. Same July 1 deadline. And don't forget to include your contact info. Thanks!

Oh yeah, send 'em to verb.noire@gmail.com.

Call for Volunteers!

Thanks to all who have offered their services! Now it's time to put you to work. We're asking those of you interested in reading manuscripts to shoot us an email at verb.noire@gmail.com outlining your skills, preferred genre (so that we don't have fantasy fans reading mysteries), and contact info (if you haven't already). To those who have contacted us, you will be hearing from us soon. Thanks!

Keepin' it funky.

Wow. It's amazing how quickly this community has grown over the last few weeks. The support has been overwhelming, and greatly appreciated. For those of you just tuning in, here's the mission:

To celebrate the works of talented, underrepresented authors and deliver them to a readership that demands more.

What does that mean? That if you're a talented writer with an awesome, original story about a POC girl/guy/transgendered character, there is a place for you. And that if you're a sci-fi/fantasy fan who has grown tired of the constant whitewashing of these genres, there is a place for you, too.

Now that isn't to say that we will accept ANY ol' manuscript as long as it features a POC protagonist, because we will NOT. What we're looking for is quality, soul and PASSION, something that will resonate with readers for years to come.

"Everyone has a story." These words have driven my professional career for the last decade. These words are also the driving force behind this project, because I believe that EVERYONE has at least one good story in them, and that story demands to be shared with the world.

The rough part, of course, will be funding. In the next few days, you will be seeing a crazy amount of "Donate" buttons on the sites of friends, family and other folks down for the cause. Please click on them and spread the word, if you're so inclined. :)

So...questions? Comments? Criticisms? Coming into a large inheritance and would like to contribute some ducats to the cause? Post up in the comments. We'd love to hear from ya.
