Happy New Year everyone.
We have some exciting news to share with all of you. It’s been a long time coming but we can finally reveal we’ll be publishing The Temporal Logbook in March 2015.
We still have a bit of work to finish on the publication but we can tell you that the cover has been completed but we’re making a few minor adjustments so that its just right.
All 11 stories have now been laid out. We’re currently in the midst of copy proofing the layout but we can confirm that the finished book will be in and around the 200 page mark.
Over the next couple of weeks we’ll confirm the final details including the purchase cost and how you’ll be able to order your very own copy of The Temporal Logbook.
Just a quick note to let those of you who are interested in our first charity Doctor Who short-story collection, The Temporal Logbook, that further updates on the project will be found by following the project’s blog at http://www.thetemporallogbook.wordpress.com. The blog will contain updates and news as it happens with regards to the project.
THE TEMPORAL LOGBOOK
A Doctor Who short story collection
Pencil Tip Publishing is pleased to announce the unofficial Doctor Who charity short-story collection, The Temporal Logbook.
It’s been said that Doctor Who has one of the most flexible formats in television drama. With the basic premise of an alien who travels throughout space and time in a box that is bigger inside than out, and which is disguised as a 1960s police public call box, it can’t get much simpler than that. One week the show can be a gothic horror, the next it can be a comedic satire, while the next it could be a base-under-siege thriller – the possibilities are endless.
The Temporal Logbook is a new short-story collection featuring original Doctor Who fiction by new and upcoming writers. The stories will involve the first eleven television Doctors, in a series of exciting adventures across space and time. The collection will be published by Canadian publisher Pencil Tip Publishing. 100% of the proceeds from this publication will be donated to our chosen charity Positive Living Society of British Columbia (formerly BC Persons with AIDS Society) http://www.positivelivingbc.org.

We have created a new blog in support of the forthcoming Doctor Who short story collection THE TEMPORAL LOGBOOK.
The blog will be the place to keep up-to-date on the project as it develops including news, information and forthcoming submission guidelines. The blog can be found at http://www.thetemporallogbook.wordpress.com.
After much debate we’ve decided to change the name of our forthcoming Doctor Who short story collection. The TARDIS Tales will now be known as the The Temporal Logbook. While we liked the original name for the project, we weren’t completely thrilled about it. Something didn’t seem right. So after much thought, debate and even a poll to ask potential readers, we felt The Temporal Logbook was a much more distinctive name.
A blog has been created for The Temporal Logbook here where you’ll find up-to-date information on the project including the revised submission guidelines for the project.
We’ve launched a new blog for our first project TARDIS Tales which can be found at thetardistales.wordpress.com.
