We’ve got a date! Yesterday’s Gone: Season Five will be released on October 15, 2014!

The Best Dystopian Deal You’ll Probably Ever See!

The Best Dystopian Deal You’ll Probably Ever See!

You know those .99 romance book bundles you see at the top of the charts ALL THE TIME?  Nothing against romance box sets, as I’m friends with quite a few romance authors, but I’d LOVE to see a dystopian box set at the top of the charts! Well, some authors on the Kindle Boards decided to make that set. And … Yesterday’s Gone: Season One is one of 11 books included in this GIANT dystopian box set released today called A Taste of Tomorrow. And when I say GIANT, I mean this thing is MASSIVE — like 3,000 pages! Now, I know what you’re saying — I already read Yesterday’s Gone: Season One. Why are you telling me to get this? Glad you asked! Well, first off, we wrote a brand new author’s foreword for this edition, talking about Yesterday’s Gone’s place in both our careers, and in dystopian fiction. But wait, that’s not all! You’re also getting 11 books from some of the best writers in dystopian fiction! Are you ready to buy?

Happy Halloween

We’re back! Thank you to everyone who emailed or sent us messages via Facebook asking: WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WEBSITE? Our domain registrar failed to send us a renewal notice when the domain expired, and we temporarily lost the website, and had to spend several HOURS ON THE PHONE and more than a week of waiting to get it back. Very frustrating, but we’re back now, and just in time for Halloween. AND we renewed the website for many years to come! So, Happy Halloween!  Tomorrow, I’ll post a quick rundown and update of everything that’s going on at the Inkwell. If you’ve got any questions you’d like to see answered, ask below (or email me) and I’ll address them tomorrow. Have a great...
Why We’re Going Back to Weekly

Why We’re Going Back to Weekly

Hey there fellow Goner! Sean here with this week’s update. Just a few more days (this coming Tuesday), and then we’re back with Yesterday’s Gone’s FOURTH SEASON!!! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, YES! GO TEAM BORICIO!!! So. Excited. In case you didn’t see Dave’s super awesome teaser trailer last week, you can get that here: Yesterday’s Gone: Season Four Announcement Trailer And, in cause you’re as dying to start reading Yesterday’s Gone Season 4 as we are for you to start reading it, here’s a chapter you can read RIGHT NOW: http://collectiveinkwell.com/2013/07/05/sneak-peek-yesterdays-gone-season-four/ NOTE: Yesterday’s Gone Season Four is not back from our editor yet, so you may spot a couple of typos. You get to see our flubs because you’re a Goner and we love you! Also, we tweak right up to the end, so while this is a chapter from the new season, it’s not necessarily the first. A DIFFERENT STRATEGY FOR SEASON FOUR Last week I told you that we were going to be launching Yesterday’s Gone a bit differently, and we are. Last year we were running our schedules so tight, we were never more than a week ahead of what you were reading. That meant we were only working on episode three of while you were reading two, during every series we wrote. This drove us a bit nuts because we thought we would be able to write better stories if we could get ahead enough to see everything at once. FINALLY, at the end of last year we finally did. Our first series this year was the second season of Available Darkness. Because we...

Yesterday’s Gone Launch Party Hangout This Monday

Hey, Goners, On Monday we’ll be doing a Google Hangout to celebrate the launch of Yesterday’s Gone: Season Four. We’ll be doing that on Monday July 8, 2013 at 7 PM EST The chat will be informal, just a chance to talk with you all about anything and everything for an hour and a half or so. If you’ve not already signed up, you will need a Google+ account. Once you have that, add Dave to your Circles (from the link below). Then email us and let us know you want to be invited. https://plus.google.com/104357812124137767241/posts Note: You WILL need earphones, a webcam, and microphone if you want to participate in the live chat. And the chat will be livestreamed via YouTube. The earphones are to keep your audio from creating an annoying feedback loop. If you come without earphones, we may need to turn your mic off in the chat. If you want to just chat in a message window, you can do that via YouTube without any of that stuff, and we’ll be watching that, too. We’ll update this page on Monday, and our Facebook page when the event goes live so you can join us. You can join in by either adding us to your Google Circles and emailing me in advance requesting an invite to join our live video chat, or (I think) you can show up and just chat....
