Hey gang! We are a month into the Zombie Apocalypse and still no Zombies! But in all seriousness, I hope that everyone is doing well and are keeping safe while we all sit around and wait to see what happens to us next.

Speaking of Zombie Apocalypse, if you have not done so—as of today, for the past twenty–five days, I have released a short chapter of a world over ran by zombie–like creature called, The End for free to read for anyone who follows the magazine's Facebook or Twitter page. If you have not done so yet, pop over to either social media of you choosing and you can find the prelude and go from there. If memory serves me correctly, the final part will be presented on May 2nd, so you still have plenty of time to get caught up and enjoy the finale that Saturday!

I know this comes out a little late in the month, but I would be remiss, if I did not mention that April is Autism Awareness Month. To date, it is projected that in 2020 there is a one in fifty–four chance of a child being born with autism. As a parent of a son who is inflicted with this disability, along with The JayZoMon/Dark Myth Company, I ask you the reader to donate a little toward a charity of your liking. Since Autism receives less government funding for research than lesser developmental disabilities a little something goes a long way!

On the home front, there is six days left (from the release of this issue anyway), to submit to our second annual Open Contract Challenge. We have a bunch of submissions, and while no one have formally been excepted, there has been a handful who have already been rejected. While the contest is open to anyone in the world to submit and enter, one main rule must not be overlooked in the submission process. IT MUST BE WRITTEN IN ENGLISH!

I apologize for any inconvenience this may create, if the judges cannot read said submission there is a one hundred percent chance of you moving into the second round. Also, since there are so many submissions this year that we will need more judges to go through them, and with that said, if you are interested in becoming a judge please email us at: open_contract_challenge@jayzomon.com.

Another thing worth mentioning here this go around in the commentary section is that we are currently working on launching a brand–new magazine this year. But this will not be an online magazine, like The World of Myth, it is planned to be a dual–medium magazine.

So, what does that mean?

This new magazine will be produced as a traditional magazine which will be in a printed in a full four–color form but will also be on sale as an eBook that can be read on any E–reader on a tablet or phone. While we will offer drabbles, short stories and poetry, this magazine will also present topic for more reading enjoyment—such as politics, health & wellness and sports.

While there is much that still needs to be covered, before the release of this quarterly publication, we are still very excited for future announcements.

Okay, gang, that is everything on my end, I want to thank all of you who coming and enjoy the fruits of our labor every month. We all would love to have some feedback good bad or indifferent, we were picking up steam a few months back on your thoughts and has faded. We do this for the love of the craft and any response would just be icing on the cake!

All right, that is it for me this month. All of you be safe and stay inside until we are told the Zombie Apocalypse is over. And, for those out there now, on the frontlines, we all here at The World of Myth want to thank you for your bravery and service to all of humankind!

Until Next time!

With respect to you all!
