To hard sell or not to hard sell?

Oct 29th, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

We strongly dislike asking for money. This is a major failing for a business. Having been on the wrong end of the hard sell far too often, we balk at pushing too hard when Crossed Genres comes out with a new publication, or has a sale. We don’t want to alienate readers, especially since the […]



It’s got an evil attitude

Nov 5th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Sory for the lack of posting in the past few days. The release of Issue 12, and then me and my whole family getting sick, slowed us down considerably. I think we knew we were all getting sick even back around the 30th, but we beat it back until after our party and the release; […]



There’s a name for it, there’s a phrase that fits

Oct 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Yesterday the general public got its first glimpse at a sneak peek of the LGBTQ issue’s cover art. Or at least, those who visited Tor.com did. Pablo Defendini and Richard Rhorer delivered on their promise to host an ad for the LGBTQ issue on the Tor.com website for free for a couple of weeks leading […]



Sometimes you think you’re gonna get it

Oct 7th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Editing happened! We’re not finished, but progress was made. Hurrah! Today was Mad Communication Day. I must have sent a good 20-25 emails covering various subjects for the magazine. Mostly about Issue 12, although there were a few things about past and future issues as well. Kay also sent quite a few emails as she […]



I played around as well I was able

Oct 1st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

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. But there is much to blog about, so here I am again. First, congratulations to SirDayWalker for winning the Submission Guesstimate Contest! He guessed […]



Just keep your wide eyes wide wide open

Sep 10th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Eventually, I lost count of all the posts and retweets about the rejected ad. A lot more people read about it than commented, though… as near as I can tell, over 1,100 different people have read the post since it went up, and that’s just here on the website. I don’t have tracking numbers for […]



By the sharp lapels of your checkered coat

Sep 10th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

This has been an overwhelming day, for obvious reasons. The response has been enormous – I’ve been trying to track the blog posts, re-links and tweets that have spread this thing everywhere, but I’m sure I’ve missed a ton of them. Fortunately the response has been almost unanimously supportive. It’s after midnight where I am, […]



SFF market rejects our LGBTQ ad

Sep 9th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

While advertising Crossed Genres through Project Wonderful, I’ve been placing a number of ads specifically calling for submissions to our upcoming LGBTQ issue. On September 1, I placed an ad bid on Flash Fiction Online, figuring it was an appropriate site for a call for writing submissions. They had their system set so that they […]



Come on now, people, make a stand

Sep 8th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Sorry about the lack of updates. I’ve been busy with… well lots of things. Some CG-related, some not. All rejection letters have been sent, I’m pretty sure. If you haven’t heard from me regarding a submission to Issue 11, please email. Horror really was a good month for submissions; just slightly fewer than our best […]
