A New Beginning

Posted in Uncategorized on December 30, 2011 by C. J. Edwards

Welcome to the new Full Dark City. Instead of an ongoing story you will now find content predominately discussing the world of fiction, and what a world it is. Personally I am very excited to be a writer in this rapidly evolving world of publishing. Keeping tabs on the latest trends in publishing and self publishing is something that I hope to do here as well.

The main focus of Full Dark City will be to help draw attention to some of the talented writers out there creating some fantastic fiction. It has only been in the last year or so that I have become aware of the crime fiction/noir scene on the internet, and I jumped in with both feet. It continually amazes me how good some of these short stories are. The more I read the more I am convinced that these writers are future greats.

Full Dark City will not be a review site per se, but it is unavoidable that I will write about books and stories that have caught my attention. My taste in reading material is pretty eclectic and not always as complete as I would like it to be. So posts may run the gamut from fresh new online crime stories to a Shakespeare play I hadn’t read yet. Granted there will probably be a lot more of the crime/noir variety but I also enjoy so many other genres as well as non-fiction works for that to be my only focus.

I also want to hear from you, my fellow writers and lovers of books. My life as yet has not been blessed with the luxury of writing as my sole occupation, so for this blog to do what I want it to you all must join the discourse. Whether you agree or disagree with something written here, please speak up. Without an ongoing discussion I will just sit here and wallow in my ignorance.

Again, welcome.  Please check out my disclaimers in the ABOUT   section. In addition to this post I will be opening with a discussion about a new publication that has caught my attention in a big way.

The opening post will be in two days on January 1. I will be interviewing the editor of a fantastic new publication.

Let’s bring it people.

A change

Posted in Uncategorized on December 26, 2011 by C. J. Edwards

Dear Reader,

I know many of you are enjoying the story here at Full Dark City. Apologies are in order since I have not posted the next installment in some time. There is hope however. The plan is to publish a new and improved complete version in 2012. It will be available through Amazon in book form and on Kindle. I am very excited about this, and I hope you all will be too.

As for Full Dark City the blog. It will be undergoing a format change in the coming weeks. The story will continue to be available until then. The new format will be a fiction blog discussing all manner of things fiction, especially in the world of online fiction. There are some very talented writers out there in the world of noir and crime fiction short stories. This new exciting generation of writers are bringing back the short story in a big way. This medium of fiction has suffered for a long time, and it is a pleasure to see it beginning to thrive again.

I hope, dear readers, that you will stay with me and continue to contribute to the discussion here at my humble blog. Along with a complete Full Dark City there are a number of other projects that will soon be ready for your reading pleasure. They will be announced here as they come to fruition.

Thank you all again.

Yours Truly,

C. J. Edwards
