In a couple days there will be anyway! Sorry about the lack of posts. We’re working hard, really! Yesterday there was a lot of reading. We’ve reached the point where submissions increase at the end of the month, so I sent out a few more to slush readers. We’re still pretty far behind the August [...]

Getting anxious for Halloween. Halloween means our Halloween/Issue 12 party, and the day after, Release Day. Oh yeah. We actually have more to do to prepare for the party then we do for the Release! I’ve been doing some little tweaks to the website here and there, but we’re really ready. We’ve been working mostly [...]

WOW so much to tell! First and foremost: the print edition of Issue 12 has been finalized! Today was another example of speediness by the printer: Submitted at 11:58 am, proof ordered at 3:26 pm, proof shipped at 4:46 pm. Less than 5 hours total. Brilliant. I gotta say: DAMN I am so pleased with [...]

We’re still waiting to hear back from a couple of writers about the edits to their stories. Even though we’re still okay for time *knock wood* I’m getting a bit antsy. Want to put this puppy to bed so I can focus on the other editions. I did finalize a couple more of the stories, [...]

I’ll make a proper post tomorrow, with updates on the past couple of days. It’s been a crazy weekend, with the website being down for a good part of it. Still sorting things out from the results of that. The LGBTQ issue is still on track though! I’ll give details tomorrow. Plus an announcement coming [...]

Despite the annoyances of the day, a lot was accomplished. The primary annoyance was with Adobe Acrobat, which we can’t afford. Kay had one of those ideas that’s so clever we both wondered why we didn’t think of it sooner. Rather than waiting until we had all the stories edited and formatted, we’re going to [...]

I thought I was going to get burned out, having to read so much in such a short time. But I’m not, for 2 reasons. First, the quality of stories we got for the LGBTQ issue was exceptional – our shortlist was far larger, even percentage-wise, than usual. And second, we’re so damn excited that [...]

So much to do… so much to talk about… I’m barely awake after staying up past 1am to deal with the website issues and then actually get the new issue released.
