I would like to present INNOVATE, issue 1 of which is now live at Kindle, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo and will soon be live at iTunes and Pothi.com.
INNOVATE is a new literary e-magazine, devoted to bringing original and thought-provoking features from established and up-coming authors, as well as establishing a new frontier with enhanced media.
The first issue has short stories by Elizabeth Audrey Mills and Mark Fleming, instalments of ongoing stories by Grey Wolf (The Library) and Swaroop Acharjee (Beyond Nemesis – Sherlock Holmes on the Titanic), poetry by KD Rose and Val Trevallion, and ‘The Re-emergence of the Book’, an article by KD Rose, looking at the multi-media options that ought to be available for ebooks.
Issue 1 has a unique cover by Mark Fleming, and an interview with best-selling author, Herbie Brennan. H T Brennan’s book “Whisperers: The Secret History of the Spirit World” is reviewed by Elizabeth Audrey Mills and Grey Wolf.
Issue 2 is due out at the end of February and will feature an interview with Brien Foerster, archaeologist, ancient historian and author, particularly about the pre-history of Peru and the Andes, and the phenomena of elongated heads.
INNOVATE E-Magazine is seeking submissions to new categories for future issues. We are opening a Poet’s Corner where 6 to 8 poems an issue will receive the space to breathe. An Art Gallery and a Writers’ Tips section will allow both artists and authors to show their work, and propound on essential features of their craft.
Each issue will be open to at least two submissions of short stories or the like, selected from applicants by The Innovate Team. We hope this presents an exciting opportunity for writers across the genres to get themselves featured in a new and exciting e-magazine. Whilst we will consider material that is previously self-published, we will prefer material which has yet to be published anywhere. All rights, including serialisation rights, remain with the author, excepting only that the author gives permission for INNOVATE E-Magazine to use the material in the specific issue, to keep it in print for 8 months and to continue to offer the magazine with the material in it as a back issue indefinitely.
To become involved in Innovate E-Magazine you can like our Facebook page at
where you request involvement in the Submissions Group. Alternatively, submissions can be emailed to
If a submission is accepted we will endeavour to publish it in the next issue of the E-Magazine. If this is not possible, we will let you know but you can guarantee it will be published in the first available issue thereafter.
Due to copyright restrictions we are unable, as things stand to accept fan fiction. Where the character is legally out of copyright, we will of course consider such works. A recent ruling in the United States has verified that Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes is out of copyright. Famous science fiction/fantasy author Barbara Hambly has celebrated by announcing that she will publish her Sherlock Holmes story. In Innovate, Indian author Swaroop Acharjee has penned an exciting Sherlock Holmes story, set around the fateful first journey of the RMS Titanic.
Future issues will also be open to guest artists designing the cover for the magazine, though this will not be open until issue 4.
