Kindle no more

A few days ago I mentioned in a post that Crossed Genres would no longer be offering new releases (of the magazine or otherwise) on Amazon’s Kindle. I’ve gotten a few queries as to why, so I’ll give a brief answer. First, understand that Kindle has been kind of a pain in the ass for [...]

When we got back from shopping this afternoon, Kay and I found two big boxes waiting for us. They contained this: That’s 100 copies of the anthology! We’re so very excited to have them in hand. They look absolutely perfect. Here’s a close-up of the cover: We’ll be packing them for shipment this weekend; Monday [...]

Standing up to The Man (Amazon)

Kind of. Amazon tried to give us some trouble with the Kindle edition of issue 14. On December 27, I created the new Kindle release in the online “Shelf”, as they call it. I entered all the information and uploaded the file and cover. At the time, I noted that Amazon had added an additional [...]

What an exhausting weekend. Fortunately it was a good one this year for us. Not terribly stressful. Worked off a lot of tension and energy playing the new Wii (our 3-year-old son’s pretty good at it. Who knew?). We saw that all of you seem to have been busy over the weekend too. I thought [...]

Why wait any longer for the world to begin

Sorry for the lack of posts. I can say in all honesty that it’s because I have been busting my ass on CG. Yesterday I finalized the print, pdf, Kindle and prc editions of Issue 13. Who’s awesome? That’s right. Actually we have to wait for the proof of the print edition to arrive before [...]

Yesterday’s sunshine is faded

Annoyingly, we’ve decided that we need to order a 3rd proof copy of the print edition. There are a few tiny problems that, if it was just one of them, we might leave it (as much as it would irk us), but together we can’t ignore them. Every one is just a little flaw in [...]

Ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent

Sadly, the official announcement has to wait one more day. Not planned, but today wasn’t quite as expected. I almost finished the Kindle edition of issue 12 today… another hour or so tomorrow should do it. I encountered something I’d never had to do before: I had to break apart the comics we’re running into [...]

Except he’s somehow taught the bridge computer how to swear

I’m a bit giddy at the moment. I worked so hard on the magazine today that I’ve gone through exhaustion and out the other side to slap-happy. Issue 11? That’s done. Except for a couple fiddly things, most of which can’t be done until the last couple days of the month anyway. Today I: – [...]

Busted me for disturbin’ the almighty peace

Just because I’ve been quiet doesn’t mean nothing’s been going on. In fact, we’ve been up until 1am the last few nights working. The results: today I finally heard back from the last writer, and with that last approval I was able to finalize all the content. I’d already gone ahead and finished as much [...]

This is what happens when we really focus. With the goal of getting just about everything for I9 wrapped up a week early – thereby enabling us to get as far ahead on Issue 10 as possible before WorldCon – I forbade myself most of my usual distractions and really threw myself into it. Not [...]
