SLURL: Bright Metallic – Pleione
Stop by and check it out! There is seating to relax and hang out, and a Sponsor Wall where those that support the magazine are represented.
Bright Metallic is looking for Bloggernauts! What is a Bloggernaut you ask? A Bloggernaut helps creators and readers to find like-minded bloggers. Each month, one selected Bloggernaut will showcase items from creators in an interesting and artistic fashion, with their own cyberpunk, sci-fi, dystopian style. If you are interested in becoming a Bloggernaut, IM or send a notecard to Tara De Vries, Art Director for Bright Metallic and include links to your blog, Flickr, and any relevant experience.
Welcome contributor Felice Nightfire of Laudanum Lollipops who will share two writings and pictures in December’s debut issue.
Magazine kiosks should be ready by mid-week and we will be sending them out to those that request them and actively asking people to host a kiosk. There are several options with the kiosks a 1LI version to a 3LI scripted animated version, non-animated as well to choose from.
Join the in-world group for the latest news, and thank you for your support!
Tara De Vries, Art Director for Bright Metallic, has finished the in-world magazine kiosk. They are beautiful! There are a floor and wall version, and a scripted animated version and non-scripted choices. All versions are just 1LI. Amazing work, Tara! The release date for the first issue is Dec. 1st 2014. We will be reaching out to land and shop owners to ask if they will host a kiosk. Please help out if you can and host a kiosk!
I have briefly spoken with the most talented Sian Pearl of Chariot and she’s interested in working with the ‘zine. You can see Sian’s work here on her blog Parthenoid.
We have been given permission to re-print a SL sci-fi writer’s original story “Fish on Friday” by Elinor Caiman Sands. I met Elinor through Bookstacks, an in-world book club that meets every Saturday @ 2pm SLT at the Bookstacks Pub in Second Life. You can read about Elinor and her recent RL published work and awards at The Happy Snappy Gator. If you are photographer in Second Life and would like to volunteer to make a few pictures for “Fish on Friday” please let Mirage Plaid know your interest.
Would you like to participate in Bright Metallic? We are looking for contributors of all skill level, languages, and interests within the SL sci-fi genre. Contact Mirage Plaid in the evening SLT or her alter ego Marsha Warwillow, Editor in Chief of slGoth, during the day SLT.
