Wednesday is also the LAST day to read the Humor issue! Some great stories and a terrific article by Piers Anthony on writing Humor! Go read it and/or buy [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Mr Sandman, bring me a dream

Today was very busy, but a lot of it wasn’t CG-related. The biggest thing I did today was get the PDF of issue 12 formatted. It took longer than I’d expected – partly because there was so much more material, but also because there’s a lot more images than our regular issues, all of which [...]

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: – [...]

The print edition is done. Not only done, but submitted, approved, and the proof ordered. I love it when the approval turns around so fast. I also had time to get the PDF edition formatted, and the various pieces converted to PDF. All that’s left is to merge them into one document and it’ll be [...]

No one knew the circumstance but they say that it happened pretty quick

Maybe this is going to be the norm, and I shouldn’t be surprised, but it has. the proof of Issue 10 has already been shipped. This morning I woke to find an email from Createspace, informing me that the cover image as submitted didn’t have enough “bleed” at the edge for printing. I thought that [...]

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 [...]
