A quick note about self publishing Renaissance stories: IMPORTANT

Note from Stuart:

A few of you have sent us e-mails, or have kept to yourself, about self-publishing your Renaissance stories. Please understand the fact that at this moment  I retain the copyright to the shared world of Renaissance and the naming of the locations.

I am working on some methods so that we could work together as a collective in publishing. This is one of the news items that I have been holding back simply because it is a lot of work to get this going.

If you are interested in pursuing this (this meaning publishing on your own)  you must contact me first.

Thank you all. This is only the beginning.


  1. Hi Stuart,
    Honestly never occurred to me. I just sent you an email.

  2. I'm not thinking it at all. I like having a series just for my blog :)


  3. Hey there @Copyboy - I have a dedicated page on my blog with details. Feel free to ask me about it, or any of the other hosts as well. Nice to see you here... I have been enjoying your series "Guess The Rash" ;-))

  4. Hi Stuart. I'm just dropping by from Alex's blog, and am now your newest follower, so:

    Nice to meet you!

  5. Hi Matt! I'm not Stuart, but as one of the REN3 co-hosts I'd like to welcome you :-)

  6. Hi Matthew: as Li mentioned, there are four who co-host Ren3: Damyanti Biswas, Lisa Vooght, JC Martin and myself.

    Welcome aboard...we'll start prepping for May soon.

  7. Matt, I gotta know. How did you obtain the rights to all renaissance fiction? I want in. I miss-spent a lot of hours reading this genre of fiction as a teenager.
    Regardless, I am now your loyal follower and am looking forward to the challenge ride come April! Nice to meet you! Live long, and prosper.

  8. Hi Tina,

    Hello from one of the organisers! Firstly, none of us is called Matt, and secondly, we don't have rights for renaissance fiction. Stuart, one of the hosts, is the creator of the *town* called Renaissance, and the world around it, and hence holds creative copyright of the name. :)


  9. Elisabeth: we're still working on the details with a publisher. MIGHT have to go the self publishing route. We'll see. Thankks.

  10. Thanks for stopping by and leaving an uplifting comment.

  11. Exciting development. I look forward to seeing where this is going!

  15. Hi Ciara - this blog went with our writing project last year, which was supposed to restart in March - but co-host Damyanti also co-hosted A to Z this year and the rest of us got too busy to run i this spring. Maybe in the fall. In the meantime, we all have individual blogs which are updated (since this hasn't been) if you want to check us out there.
